Figured we'd best get one of these threads going!

We've got Alien: The Cold Forge and Aliens: Dust to Dust #1 being released.

Dane Hallett is announcing something - most likely his and Matt Hatton's David's Diary book.

Eaglemoss are doing a competition (US only): https://shop.eaglemoss.com/usa/AlienDay2018

(Will update with pretty pictures and more links later)

Some more news on Cold Iron's project would be great - but I feel it's still too early to see anything. It was over two years between them announcing the Creative Assembly were working on an Alien game and them even announcing the title of Alien: Isolation.

Sounds good! This year, I plan to finally break a box of (2016) Upper Deck Alien Anthology cards! Really hoping for an awesome sketch card or autograph, or, if I picked a very good box, the dual auto of Charles Dance and Charles Dutton (still never even seen one for sale or pulled yet!).

With all the delays NECA has been having. Do you think they’ll really have anything to offer by the end of the month? Other than that, can’t wait to read Dust to Dust!

I love the fact that they do this every year now especially since it falls directly on my birthday.  Its like it was meant to be.  It's made it much easier for my wife and kids to find me awesome gifts the last couple of years.  I hope they keep this up every year and keep making new things and not just discounting the same old things that are already out there.  I like saving money but i want a push for new stuff with the alien franchise!

I signed up for Eaglemoss.  I fell in love with their stuff after they started coming out with a figure for almost everything!  Fortunately they're 1:16 scale otherwise my entire office would be filled up. 

Someone above mentioned a Covenant sequel.  I second that!

Ditto Morose...all very exciting... but all I want is a decent Alien movie or game ;) Granted - we did get a great Alien game after the CM fiasco - so, all I want is a decent Alien movie or new AVP game:0)

Or if not AVP, a Pred game. 5 chapters, not necessarily the same pred: A Cretacous level, couple of alien world levels (not necessarily with 'Aliens', but other beasts), a 'Nam level, a Ryushi-like space colony.

Sorry guys, daydreamin' again, went a little going off topic there...

I would be very surprised. I believe they might just announce a new figure, show a picture of a prototype. I hope I'm wrong and they have something planned!

Yeah, wanna see Dust to Dust. I am mostly looking forward to something new and any surprise announcements. Wouldn't mind some news on Covenant 2...  :P
