I would love a copy but instinct tells me all the scalpers will have grabbed them before a group buy even gets started

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.

This is okay, and I'm sure the slips will be great. But the near-monochromatic/B&W palette seems wrong. Where's the green?

Who knows maybe they'll add a glow in the dark effect like they did with T2 and hey presto you have your green :LOL::rofl:

@paulboland quick remind us all how the GITD effect works again? :p

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

Y’all never seen oil slick before? I like it. At least it’s not rainbow vibrant like the same art on the standard UHD release.

The Big Chap Alien from the first film has a semi- translucent dome. (Revealing a skull beneath)

They may be going for a light effect on the steelbook art- but it looks like Van Gogh swirls.

Artwork looking good, thought I'm not sure I like them going with an image of the alien and Lambert for the inside. Think I would have preferred a crew photo like this:

Yes, looks like the swirls in the cavity have been used to cover the skull/brain ...

... best seen in this 1:3 scale model (with light swirls) ...

Even though that's how the prop/mask looked like on the set (and how all the replicas on the market look like), I don't remember seeing the skull in the finished film (due to the dome getting foggy from beneath). Correct me if I'm wrong, but I remember pausing the film, and it's never translucent enough to see it.

And as for the steel... I still cannot force myself to like it (I wanted to).

Best ALIEN steelbook so far but in green would look better if only to go with the others (artwork TBC) planned:-

I don't know why so many people didn't like these. I think it's an amazing set, would love to have them in premium (even though it's not WWE; it's still my favorite design). I'd go for the German editions, but taglines were in German... And US never released 3 and 4.

Seems like they may not have much wiggle room with the art. The initial mockups were of Blu-ray art Fox has already used countless times, the next mock-up was FA’s green twist on the new official UHD art, and seeing as the only difference between that and this final approved art is that they had to dial back the green and just use the official art as given, it seems that may have been necessary for approval. The best they can do is offer an amazing finish and embossing, which they are.

As to this art; it’s dark, it screams Alien, this shot of the Xeno is so much meaner than the initial shot, and I love it.
