Alien 40th Anniversary & Alien Day 2019

Post by H03nn89 » 25 Apr 2019, 16:30

Hello everyone! It's nearly that time of year again, Alien Day!

[ATTACH=CONFIG]58867[/ATTACH]

Yes yes...I know...a lot of you are like surely that's a rip off of Star Wars day right? But you know what...I don't care! This is the one day of the year where my collector mind goes into overdrive! Or rather, my bank balance takes a sharp dive downwards...

Anyway....

26th April is indeed Alien Day, and this year it's extra special, as Alien turns 40 this year! I know right? 40 years since the bad boy Big Chap made its first appearance and John Hurt had his chest bust open.

So in celebration, I'm starting this thread! So come everyone and share your favourite moments from the franchise (or not), plus anybody notice any merchandise or news surrounding this, feel free to post here. Please though, do respect everyone's opinions, and just remember, I'm a massive Alien fan...be warned lol.

Who knows, if I'm not feeling too lazy or crying in a low bank balance tomorrow, maybe I should post some pics of my updated collection...hmmm...

Anyway...post away!

It's fun when you're willing to parody yourself.
