Great podcast guys, looking forward to the next one. Xenomorphine is right, there is a total treasure trove of Native history and legend they could pull from. I hope the Comanche people are brought on as consultants for authenticity. Still cautiously optimistic.
I have a little nugget for y’all, I go to Monsterpalooza every year. It’s a practical effects Monster Con, highly recommended. It tends to lean towards makeup but the Alien, Predator, Terminator guys are usually there. I’ve picked up some scraps of info in my travels. Legacy Effects was bidding for Duh Predator but they didn’t get it due to cost. I’ve also seen casts of Wolf, Fugitive and the pink Emissary up close. I can tell you that the Emissary looked much better than what we would have gotten on screen. His mouth could not close but it could close alot better than the stills we’ve seen. Placing the blame on the animatronics(servos, gears) that make the head articulate. ADI goes for the all in 1 Pred Head instead of having different heads for different expressions. That’s why the head is big and why the mandibles are a mess.
Almost forgot, if you haven’t seen ZVP check it out on YouTube
