Tell him the UPP fighter better look like a Hind or a MiG.

Given that the Aliens dropship was partially designed to resemble a Huey I always thought that any UPP dropship should have elements of a Hind. A MiG-styled fighter would for sure be a great approach though.

I’ve never seen that before

It's what you call a "kitbash". Built from different model kits.

The cockpit section is from a Le Mans Porsche and the rear half is from a Macross VF-1 Valkyrie. So there's a little bit of Robotech in the Alienverse.  ;)

There was something like that in Raised by Wolves. Built from a real Hind Gunship cockpit section:

Seeing fighters like this in the Alien universe is very odd; gives me more of a Battlestar Galactica impression, to be honest.

Agreed, but to be fair, Aliens had this fighter-like ship at Gateway station. I think it was supposed to be a service shuttle or something but it is clearly heavily armed:



"clearly heavily armed"...?

Considering the ship mounted guns we've seen don't look like that, "clearly heavily armed" seemed to be a bit of a stretch.

True, the Alienverse has a tendency to give its ships lots of spikes, prongs and tubes that resemble weapons but aren't.

It's a set of guns from a Tamiya military kit. Why is it a "bit of a stretch" to assume they are guns on the ship as well?

If you want to assume they are a pair of unicorn horns then that's fine by me. I'm not going to harass you about it.

They updated the pre-order page to say June now, so I wouldn't expect a physical release this month either.
