I wont report on "leaks" unless our sources can verify or I'm confident in it. I wasn't here and there we go! Just glad it didn't go in too long and someone reached out to him.

Hey guys,

I'm a new part of the community and got my hands on some quite exciting news.

Someone I know very well works as a VFX Artist at Weta. They are currently in the early stages of pre-production, as the script is still being revised.

Weta Digital and Weta Workshops are currently creating concept designs and sculptures/maquettes to give Noah Hawley and the producers some visual responses for the world-building.
Apparently, there are several alternatives to the classic Xenomorph design. They are playing with alternative ideas on the classic alien lifecycle, which is more "human-like" but still body horror. The overall theme explores the question of gender and identity, this reflects on some of the new designs.

This is what he showed me, thanks to working from home :D Let me know what you think

Here's the Instagram of the guy that did do the piece. You can see it in a more finished state here:

The guy is a professional artist (he did work on the suit in the upcoming Moon Knight series), which definitely explains the level of technical quality present in the design (regardless of whether the design actually works for you or not). This must have been something he was doing for fun on the side, and an early version fell into the wrong hands (maybe one of his followers nicked it somehow?) because someone wanted to have some fun with it online.

Looks like a ZBrush sculpt to me. Done by a technically proficient artist.

I'm very glad this is fake.  It would fit in theme, but if it was the only design in a series.....ugh.

It's excellent in a vacuum though.

Naturally, I'm not 100% sure on whether "updating" the original design is something to be concerned about, especially adding an subtle gender-orientated feature like feminine lips (especially in today's day and age) especially since Ridley himself stated their nongendered, but i'll leave that at the door.



The original design is fearsome in it's own right, further enhanced by Aliens and the introduction of the Xeno Queen (and the obvious non-canon Kenner toyline and comic variants, xeno prime, etc); If they can explain the changes via genetic manipulation, or how the xeno can acclimatise to it's surroundings based purely on instinct and survival in semi-fashionable Giger style, then awesome! I can imagine WY pulling a vault-tec style experiment and raising a xeno embryo in a human male/female dominated enclosure to see how it evolves to it's environment with minimal danger present.
