I still stand by my opinion there will be one eventually, they're just hoping to shift more of the fancy ones first.

It makes no sense to do standard editions in Spanish and French, then screw English speaking countries.

This is ridiculous.  I'm not buying this book, but not because of the price tag, but because I think that sculpted alien on the front is a bit ridiculous.  I just want a normal edition of the book...
To be fair the sculpted Alien is just a removable outer case, or at least that's what the Sideshow product photos show.

I'm not gonna lie, I've been edging ever-closer to caving and dropping the $300 or whatever for a copy, especially after learning that it comes with a bunch of fun little doodads, trinkets, and "artifacts" that a mass-market print edition likely wouldn't have. I loved that shit when it came with The Alien Vault (and The Terminator Vault), I'm a huge sucker for that kind of stuff.

I found a video showing a flick through of the standard Spanish edition, and by comparing it to my own, it seems the standard edition includes some of the extra trinkets, but not all of them (mostly missing out the funkier ones, like anything printed on acetate etc.) I made a list of the ones exclusive to the Collector's Edition on here.

Okay I have to ask, is Jones' vet report dated before or after 'Alien'?

And all of those collector's edition exclusives sound super-cool. But I don't wanna spend $300................ :(

It would make sense if Fox thought no one cared enough about the book to make a profit; sadly, this could very well be true with some of the recent fiascos the franchise has been having. :(

Like what? Alien Isolation was well received, Prometheus made a lot of money and is getting a sequel, and I haven't seen sales numbers for Fire and Stone or the Titan novels but I'm pretty sure they've been pretty well received, too.

Alien Isolation was well received, true, but it still isn't getting a sequel. :(  Fire and Stone was meh but the story focused too much on Prometheus and that was what inevitably made many fans have a distaste for it.  The Titan novels were ok but in my personal opinion, Out of the Shadows and River of Pain were the only good ones (so far).

I dunno, it seems like Creative Assembly is a little lukewarm on Isolation's sales numbers, for SEGA seems pleased enough. In an interview linked on these forums, Sega's CFO or someone high-up said that a sequel wasn't completely out of the question.

That's better than nothing I guess, even if we probably shouldn't hold our breath.
