    Ah Billy...Ridley Scott has gone on record in saying he wanted a more mechanical look for Prometheus.

    Got it, I hadn't heard that part. I guess kinda works because I always had the sensation the Aliens had built the ship because it looked a lot like their Hives. ( I know they didn't ) So I guess this is a way of separating the species of the Jockeys from the Aliens. Will miss Giger's touch thou.

    So everyone is arguing about the size of the Jockey..

    Has anyone noticed that the walls in the Space Jockey room are different than the original ones in ALIEN? Those were more "organic" and the new ones more mechanical....WEAK!

    Also, is it just my imagination or do some of the other pyramid chambers have objects in them? I can see the central chamber has the giant head, but there's another to the right that looks like it has a big mouse inside it.

    I note also that the storm appears to be ongoing outside the windows, yet there are markers for Fifield and Milburn still inside the pyramid....

    That is ONE, HUGE SPIRAL RAMP...with an Elevator in the middle (or could be off to one side)...kinda reminds me of the Guggenheim.

    Suits not statues.
    As for the tapir thing, well what did you expect????
    Even if the Space jockey had not been a suit, if there was going to be meat on those bones he already looked like an elephant or a Tapir. So why the surprise about the design?
    Seriously i don't get it... This is exactly the same Helmet, it's only less skeletal.

    Based on that high-quality image, Fassbender occupies 68.86 % of the vertical extent of the doorway in which he is stood. Since he is 1.83 m tall, the doorway is 1.83/0.6886 = 2.66 m high.

    This is 8' 7.6", and places an upper limit on the height of the alien beings, unless they walk along stooped over....

    everyone here discusses the SJ size but with this new pic its obvious that the chair platform is also
    small. i remember the crew of the nostromo has to climb to reach the top of it and doesn't have stairs
    either.
  11. Ooze on First
    Yeah...the constant complaining about the SJ size difference got old a long time ago.
    It's pretty clear that it's not the same ship as the one in ALIEN, and therefore not the same 'Jockey'.

    Further, we don't know anything about this species or their avg heights.
    For all we know, the SJs in Prometheus might well be children in comparison to the one in ALIEN.

    Oh, look! Space Jockey Mini-Me found his way into ALIEN too!

    Yawn. ::)

    Thats from Alien right? Kane breaks the blue light which makes the eggs open?

    Thats what I dont get; if the Derelict was "parked" and then a warning signal was released. Why the blue light and mechanism to activate eggs, looks like a trap :/
    The blue lights were some sort of stasis fields that prevented facehuggers inside eggs to feel the pressence of potential hosts in the nearbies. Kane just got too close to one egg.
  14. wmmvrrvrrmm

    Pure speculation of course, but I don't believe they're merely statues. There are four cryochambers we see in the orrery, so I'm guessing these four statues are in fact suits.

    Well, I don't think they would make nice decorative objects, that's for sure.

    However one might have assumed that the Alien in the first movie wasn't supposed to be a nice decorative object but then it is if you like that sort of thing
  15. Virgil
    How could not prove anything?

    As I just pointed out. It doesn't verify the height of the creatures themselves. Those are statues. Just like the Rocky Balboa statue is not to scale with Sly Stallone, or any other statue you could reference. They're seldom built to scale.

    Pure speculation of course, but I don't believe they're merely statues. There are four cryochambers we see in the orrery, so I'm guessing what we're seeing are in fact suits.

    Davids helmet at the foot of the statue/suit is bigger than the jockey's head. There's no way the jockeys will be as big as the one in the the chair in alien. We just have to accept it, which stinks. The tunnels themselves look only 13 feet tall at max, so there's no way we will be seeing 13 feet tall jockeys.  :-\ I hope there is a reason because it doesn't seem like something Ridley would just choose to ignore.
  17. Winkie Bear
    So...putting the Jockey size to rest once and for all......


    THOSE STATUES ARE FUKCING HUGE!!!!!!!!!

    Well, hold one. David is stood IN the doorway, so it's possible to make a reasonably accurate estimate of the height of the doorframe. Since Fassbender is between 1.80 - 1.83 m tall, depending on where you search, and lets add a couple of cm for the boots, then I make the doorway to be 2.7 to 2.8 metres (8.78 to 9.1 feet). Since the Jockey suits are on pedestals, we can safely assume they are a little shorter than 9 feet.
    Notice also the translation of the french magazine on the other thread, where the designer refers to these beings as 3 m tall.

    Evidently they are not 13-14 ft, but more like 8-9 feet.

    Comments on each pic:

    1) David looks like a little kid in that chair (in more ways than one). Also, it's cool to get a good look at that whole console lit up. I remember when some folks thought those were eggs...derf.

    2) Is Shaw looking at an old image (or video) of herself as a child?

    3) Wonder if that shot of Janek at the controls is during the initial landing or pre-Juggy crash.

    4) That Eng face is becoming a very iconic image. I just wish that pic was higher-res.

    5) I'm convinced that the green spiral in the hologram is not actually part of the structure...rather just some kind of scanning mode of the holo-table itself.

    6) I really like the way the 'scanner ball' lights up the SJ suits...best shot of them so far.
