I still think the Engineers looked creepy as f**k. Those completely black eyes.

When you say creepy, do you really mean sexy?

What you have just said lead me to a funny thought:

Spoiler
Is Engineers' semen black too ? Is that real source of Black Goo ?

The photo of a new design looks as if it has elderly man's manboobs not too dissiimilar to Alien Resurrection's newborn

Yet another fruitless attempt to reinvent the perfection of Giger's wheel, there.

Still moving away from the biomechanoid look. Wasn't there an admission from the Covenant artists that the biomechanoid style was protected by Giger's estate?

Maybe this:

I actually see slightly more emphasis on biomechanics here than in Covenant's Alien, at least with the defined tubing on the arms in this particular design.

In Covenant, there was a deliberate choice to steer away from the mechanical elements in order to present the Alien as an unfinished work-in-progress. Not sure if estate disputes directly factored into that or not, but there was a narrative-based rationale for that particular design decision.

Do you mean the ribbing on the bicep area? Hmmm, OK.

The back pipes have become more like tentacles. Maybe they should simply be removed...

Overall, I like it. Or rather, I'm open to it. But it's still just a concept image; I'm really more interested in how the script makes them behave--like a predatory, savage beast (as is the established custom), or more ghoulish and creepy?

Nope! Definitely mean creepy.

So the more I look at this, particularly the close up, the more I like it. Not as a replacement for the Alien, but as an off-shoot. As a genetic experiment, or SiL, or Blue Marsalis, I really do like this. I especially like those tendons around the mouth. Just drop the boobs and I'm happy.

No, all aspects relating to the Alien that Giger designed for the original film and Alien 3 is available for 20th/fox/disney to exploit. What they can't do is use any of Giger's other paintings without the permission of his estate. That was made very clear to Carlos Huante, Wayne Haag etc. by Fox's legal dept.

Covenant production designer, Chris Seegers said that they were sort of "edging" into the biomechanical aspects with the prequels, so we would likely have seen that in a third film.
