Have this on my iPod, so when I went out walking and listening to it, I spotted a 'No Exit' sign right as Hicks brought up the comic of the same name. At the exact moment.Hah
Nice chat fellas. Taking up Aaron's question, does anyone know the origin of the 'unravelling box-Alien'? I'm pretty sure I heard or read something about this years ago but can't recall the story.
The writer and/or artist were apparently asked about this, many years ago and they swore blind that it was in the cut which was screened to them. They have no idea what happened to it, but said it was definitely in there. The trouble with verifying it is that none of the production crew ever seems to get asked about it, which has made it a kind of anomaly. Giger's never mentioned it, but many of his designs were passed onto others to construct and they could always have made it out of left-overs from stuff made earlier. His new book might have something about it.
Wouldn't surprise me, because from what I can remember, there was meant to have been a lot of footage which had been removed for various reasons, well over the amount we've all seen. I've never even seen pictures of the famous translucent creature costume until very recently.
Wrrvrvrvrvrm (forget how you spell their name) might've been the one to have brought this to light, but I can't say for sure. Was on the News Group and I haven't been there in a very long time.
Either way, it should be kept in mind that Fox would have had to approve it before publishing.
