Seeing as the other mockups are old Blu-ray art (not even posters!), FilmArena will most likely use whatever new art Fox will make for their new standard UHD releases.

Why? White is still a colour.
Yes, true, but I don't think this is white - probably either silver or grey . . . still, green is the colour usually associated with releases of the first "Alien" ...

.... with this grey/silver on black more associated with the collections:-

On the other hand, they've used a touch of green on their COVENANT steelbook so maybe that's why they've gone with this particular colour scheme for ALIEN 1:-

Well IIRC, Manta commissioned illustrations for each movie in the franchise to use on their slips or SteelBooks. But with the Fox/Disney deal and contract stuff happening in China, may very well be delayed a long while. Probably until the rest of the franchise is available in UHD which is apparently years away anyway.

Hey there @C.C. 95 ! I fully understand what you and @TheJoker mean but I personally would prefer an action scene that includes the crew.
Remember the scene where the Alien baby first pops out and the crew were standing around?
Now, how about THAT for an inside cover?
Terrified, WTF faces, covered in blood, from everybody clustered together.
That's something I wish the suits at these decision making meetings would consider....:)

Not a bad idea, @Grendel.:thumbs:
The nice thing is - it is really easy to replace the inside art once you know how!:thumbs:
I like some nice inside artwork - but I don't really get my knickers in a twist over inside art.
I can't, however, change the OUTSIDE art! So I save my spleen venting for that!

I would love to share your enthusiasm, but I really don't like the alien image on the front, which looks like it's made out of dish soap, especially the dome. I like the simplistic concept, and embossing will be amazing, but the image itself is like some fan art.

Insert looks like some behind-the-scenes photo.

Yeah, I'm a little concerned about the swirling paint going on in the dome.

There is a reason for that.
Talk about shitty photoshopping

Hmm. I like parts of each slip but not one single entire slip.

Was gonna go 3D embossed for the whole series but the Prometheus slip was a huge step down from Covenant so I have the DL Prometheus slip. Front DL art here is a bit strange. I like the glow in the dark fullslip with lenti magnet but it’s not 4K. Dunno which to get.
