    Sure, but the actual post about the shoes -- from the makers -- specifically mentions that it's in honour of the 40th anniversary of Alien.

    Like yeah, Alien Day is for the series as a whole, but they'e specifically jumping onto the 40th anniversary of the original film for the release. That's different.

    I hear you brother, and I guess I couldn't pass up an opportunity to be nitpicky, but "Bishop" and "40th Anniversary" do both appear in the name of the shoe:

    Reebok Alien Stomper Bishop Edition "40th Anniversary"
    Release Date: 04/26/19
    Color: Scarlet/Snowy Grey/Castle
    Style #: DV8578
    Price: $180

    Hey, maybe they will release Brett's shoewear in 2026!  ;D

    Reebok Is Bringing Back the Lance Bishop-Approved Alien Stomper

    Quote
    Ridley Scott's 1979 film Alien is praised as one of the best sci-fi films ever made. To celebrate the film's 40th anniversary, Reebok is bringing back a special edition of the mid-top Alien Stomper famously worn by one of the film's protagonists Lance Bishop in the 1986 sequel Aliens.

    Not quite as extravagant as the ultra high-cut pair worn by main hero Ellen Ripley in the film, this pair is a much more wearable height. The shoe maintains its OG appearance with a cream leather upper, grey suede on the heel and strap, large midfoot strap, and red detailing. Reebok branding can be seen on the lateral and medial portion of the strap, ankle strap, and heel.

    Most excited for the audible!
    Same!

    They're being rather tight-lipped about this one, so I'm hyping myself up something stupid lol

    I'm sure it'll be good, whatever it ends up being :)

    Same! The Audible releases are what I end up enjoying most about Alien Days so I'm disappointed it's an announcement and not a release, but just excited to know another one is still coming!  ;D

    Sweet been looking forward to this for the last 2 years.  It would be cool if we got a info dump on the new fps alien game coming out.

    It'd be sweet but I'm not holding my breath.  :(

    I'm all about the ReAction stuff, and was hoping for Parker, Brett, and Lambert on cards. Looking like I might have to settle for those 3-packs...

    They were also released as a set of 5 exclusives on blue card for New York Comic Con last year.  Ripley didn't quite make it and was withdrawn.  I am expecting she will show up as an ALIEN Day release.  Unfortunately, these things are ridiculously hard to come by now and stupidly expensive when you do find them.  Gah.  :(

    There's no black card versions, unfortunately.  On the other hand it would be neat if Parker, Brett and Lambert did get a black card release.  I'm not the only other person who wants that to happen.  It's certainly not too late.

    Yes, I'd have preferred blue card since that would match the rest of my vintage Alien stuff, but was forced to go black since I'm not a Con person (and not filthy rich). I just want to have the whole crew on matching cards to hang on my wall!

    THE 40 YEAR LEGACY: A GLOBAL FAN CELEBRATION ON 4/26

    I can't access that website because apparently my browser is not secure enough. Can anybody be a pal and tell me what Super7 has on offer?

    There's no Super7 announcement on that link.  There are some new Loyal Subjects figures coming out in May; and the Diamond select ALIENS Warrior envelope opener gets a mention.  The rest of the announcement involves books which you'll already know about, some posters and a reminder NECA have figures coming out but no Super7 stuff is covered in the announcement.

    I know Super7 will be releasing their 3rd Wave of ALIEN SPACE VILLAIN blind box figures in June.  Plus 3.75 inch figures of Ripley, Newt, Hicks, Vasquez, Hudson and Bishop (which can be pulled in half.  lol) is coming but I have no release date.

    Info on those items here, here and here.

    Super7 may have something else planned. We still haven't had any word on their ReAnimated figures for over a year now.  Maybe we'll find out about those on 4/26.

    Thank you! I'm all about the ReAction stuff, and was hoping for Parker, Brett, and Lambert on cards. Looking like I might have to settle for those 3-packs...

    I think it’ll always be Dallas’ realisation of the gravity of his brave but badly thought out insistence of going into the ducts to flush the creature out.
    I remember my belly getting that falling feeling as his expression and voice slowly changed to barely controlled panicky terror as he realises he’s completely alone and in the cramped confines of the ship’s bowels with something he can’t even comprehend and his mind is playing tricks on him.

    I always felt that the alien showing up was a bit of a let down, at least compared to the insanely tense build up as all his bravado starts to evaporate

    there is no other franchise that captures that ancient dark presence that s lurking somewhere in the vastness of outerspace that the space jockey and alien hints at.  its just awesome leaves you in awe.
