Alien: The Weyland-Yutani Report Standard Edition is on the way! Earlier this year Insight Editions and Sideshow Collectables published the Alien: The Weyland-Yutani Report Collectors’ Edition. But at over $300 it was outside the price range of a lot of fans who were clamouring for a Standard Edition.
“For hundreds of years now, scientists at the Weyland-Yutani Corporation have been monitoring the behavior of an alien life-form so powerful that its potential for military application appears limitless. Although all attempts to harness the beast’s abilities have ended in appalling bloodshed, the acquisition of the Xenomorph remains a priority. As such, Weyland-Yutani has granted you access to their detailed files on the alien in the hope that you will be able to help capture and subjugate one of these fascinating yet deadly creatures
This exclusive in-world book utilizes specially commissioned illustrations and thirty-five years of Alien movie concept art and film stills to create a deeply engrossing reading experience that explores the nature of the Xenomorph in unparalleled detail. Alien: The Weyland-Yutani Report contains extensive information on the characters, locations, vehicles, and weapons from the movies, along with an in-depth breakdown of the Xenomorph’s life cycle, to give readers the most comprehensive look at one of movie history’s greatest monsters.
Covering all aspects of this hugely popular franchise’s thirty-five-year history, Alien: The Weyland-Yutani Report is the ultimate book for fans.”
How exactly the Alien: The Weyland-Yutani Report Standard Edition will differ from the Collectors’ Edition is currently unknown but it is fair to assume that this version of the book will not include the sculpted slipcase.
We previewed the Alien: The Weyland-Yutani Report Collectors’ Edition back in August. You can check out that preview in our articles section.
The Alien: The Weyland-Yutani Report Standard Edition is currently slated for release on the 20th of September 2016. Thanks to Miguel Santos for the tip.
