Well the movies were tv recording at first for me, but for official media, it was...

Quote from: Elmazalman on Jan 29, 2024, 05:43:49 AMMy first copy of ALIEN (1979) on home video was an ex-rental Betamax, bought from a video library in Salisbury, South Australia - close to the Parabanks Shopping Centre, in 1985...

I can't actually remember what the first actual thing I owned was. I remember I eventually inherited by Dad's VHS of Aliens and Predator but I'm positive I'd already taped Alien and Aliens SE off the TV myself by then. The first game was owned was Alien Trilogy on the Sega Saturn but that was a family console...

Thats really cool. Thanks for sharing those great memories! I was always jealous of people who had loads of the Kenner toys, but my knowledge of the characters and the Alien life cycle began by playing with those figures. But I share a lot of your experiences - most of us seem to be of a similar generation. Aside from maybe Pred 2 on the Mega Drive, Trilogy on the PSone was my first game. I still have it on the shelf!

An evil Quentin Tarantino?

Nightmare Asylum

The standard, single disc Alien DVD.

VHS box, then DVD right after two years later... then quadrology, then blu ray, you know how it works...

Great book!

Came across this back in High School. The art teacher owned a copy. The school library also had the novelisation and comic book. 1987 was a good year.

If I'm not mistaken, then the Aliens: Rogue book.
I treasured it.

Regarding movies, the Japanese DVD of the first two Alien movies.
About comics, I think the "War on Earth" comic.

This is one of the first thoughtful gifts I remember receiving. It was secret Santa at my first year at college and one of the lads got me one of the original printings of this.

I also had a Russian bootleg DVD of both Aliens and Predator 2, although the movie itself was in English thankfully.

Technically mine was the Kenner Snake Alien mini-comic, because the Snake Alien was the first Aliens anything I ever owned.

My first physical media of Alien that I had was the AlienĀ³ for the sega genesis. God I love that game, it was my first entry to the series when I was 4 or 5 years old, then I watched Alien Resurrection (my first Alien movie) around that time and since then I love Alien to this day

Were there any memorable special features on those versions?
