    Appreciated SM! Unfortunately i forgot to mention that anything over $100 would be too much. Not that I wouldnt love to have the collectors edition. I do have the regular affordable edition (which is great btw)

    The problem is it doesn't really look like an Alien.  It's a 'What'd you come as?' mask.

    Adrian Edmondson wrote a book called How To Be A Complete Bastard and he nailed it by wearing a black leotard and a black motorcycle mudguard on his head.

    That thing is a travesty!  >:(

    SKULL!

    That Frightrags mask is awful.

    Quite.

    Yep.  Been working on a couple of things that were all but finished and just yesterday realised that today (it's already the 26th here) was as good a day as any to launch.

    Not really sure what I'm supposed to be looking for with this? I saw David/Walter in one of them. Obviously the Alien towards the end.


    They are still promoting Covenant, that's what it means.

    And it is!

    Log 5.

    And some frames of stuff in there which I'll try and get to with a frame by frame thing. But it all seems to be for the offworld simulator.

    It seemed to me that the first year had the most merch, i had the most fun on that one as well. Last year seemed less so, aside from movie news and screenings there wasnt much.

    Anyone heard about any loot crate type deals? I got the aliens lootcrate the first year and the A-Box covenant one last year

    Unfortunatly Alien Day seems to be getting smaller each year instead of getting bigger.

    Nothing has really blown my skirt up aside from cold forge and dust to dust, which ive known about for months.

    It wasn't ever really that big. It was just some twitter contests and maybe a few screenings. Last year was the biggest it's ever been. They had actual news and things to share instead of being quiet.

    It's just a marketing ploy. A fun one, but it's nothing that needs to be all that serious.

    I’m gonna try to get the mini-version Ben Cooper Alien mask from frightrags! Of course I am also an avid soundtrack collector and if La-La Land records releases the alien3 extended version soundtrack then I’ll be all over that also.😋 either way I can’t wait, I love Alien Day!!

    Is anyone else having issues with submitting the answers?

    Wonder what could be included in an extended Alien3 score? Very interested either way!

    I confess I don't actually own the Alien 3 soundtrack album in its entirety, but I suspect it's a given that not all of the film's music is on there. Mainstream soundtrack releases, if you can call them that, are virtually never complete and exhaustive. Specialist labels such as La-La Land exist to correct that :)

    But if you want a general idea what could be expected beyond simply any film music that was missing from the existing release, La-La Land very often include alternate, unused takes as bonus tracks.

    I supposes there's also a chance this could be a complete franchise set, as they have a habit of putting together some really great series box sets. Their Lethal Weapon one springs to mind.

    Besides the Eve Kasper name (is she in the EU? I don't know), I'm fairly certain this is a tease for that one game they announced this week

    I don't recognize it and a quick Google reveals nothing.

    I think if you search for Alien 3 Extended Soundtrack you should find it.  I don't have a link, and the version I have isn't the greatest.  Whoever created it, tried to rip out the dialogue, and wasn't completely successful.

    There's a bootleg Alien 3 soundtrack that has around 30 extra minutes of music.
    pm me a link and I will marry you.
