That's why I love it


It reinforces movie's main message perfectly

And, yes, @Local Trouble, before you come in, it does upset people


I adore it. The image of Clemens skull getting pierced never left my mind from that day.


Same, me, skull enjoyer.


Quote from: Local Trouble on Feb 19, 2017, 05:34:10 PMTo be clear, I don't mind the skull so long as it's hidden beneath a virtually opaque dome.  However, when the dome is removed, I think the head looks awful.  The skull cavities give it a resemblance to that ridiculous Newborn and the ridges are obviously airbrushed instead of sculpted.

This is why I think a clearer dome on top of Winston's design would be ideal.  I can't help but wonder whether or not that version actually had the skull before Cameron insisted on losing the dome altogether.





Always liked those weird f**king sculpts.

Isn't that the one Peter Briggs planed to use in his AvP movie ?

I believe so! Certainly looks like Alien Pile to me. I love that model.


Looks so freaky.

Not a fan of the bendy heads.

Quote from: Trash Queen on Sep 20, 2021, 10:32:18 AMThe elongated head's a human phallus with teeth, the inner jaw's also a phallus with teeth, the rib cage's inhuman but still relates to us specifically.

It's nothing but human features mixed with technology. I dont know what he was thinking but it was obviously sexual. Eventhough I dont like the idea of david creating the alien I think its interesting, he is full of sexual desire and frustration and wants to reproduce, maybe he even lacks genitals? I find it fitting that the creature he designs is literally a vagina that hold you down and rapes you so and impregnates you with a creature that has a penos for a head that kills you through penetration.

Biomechanics if you will.

Hmm.. Its an intriguing point of view. I wonder if Giger was prophetic, that we will become the Xenomorph, the biting tongue of Xeno a metaphor for how people bite and devour one another with words online (not these forums, but twitter, oh boy), the elongated head being our access to knowledge because the internet, and so our minds have expanded.

On the topic of skull vs no skull
I always want the skull to be partially visible depending on the lighting, and of course, for the skull to resemble the host

Unsure if this take has ever been made, but I would also love if the skull looked metallic like the teeth of the Alien
