Hey guys,

Thought I'd switch it up and see what you guys hate from the AvP universe.

For me I'm not a fan of Goro-Pred... The Four-Armed Predator from the follow on Predators comic is my dislike. I don't care if he's a mutant or its Super Preds trying to become better but I don't like this Mortal Combat Goro look alike.

What dislike or hate do you hope doesn't rear its ugly face?

That's the first I've seen about this.....and I agree with you, no four armed predators.


But four armed xenomorphs, great googly-moogly but that's a Yessssss!!!11!!

Not to sound like an intolerant person but there are a lot more potential concepts I would rather NOT see. However there aren’t many I actively 'hate'.
To be honest the only design which I ACTIVLY hate is the newborn, but given it's screen appearance I couldn't in all good conscience deny it to collectors.

Topping the list of disdain worthy concepts are:
5) Flying Facehuggers: Various arcade games. (It's a silly concept invented to provide verity, enough said)
4) Zombies/Chest-burster-Mutants/Mutant-Hosts (The franchise does not need zombies, and if people want them there are fine zombie models available elsewhere)
3) Unnamed large alien with acid rockets launched from it's back: Alien Armageddon (xenomorphs don't launch guided missiles)
2) Dinosaur/Dæmon heads: ACM (They look aweful and make no sense what so ever)
1) Snake Alien: Kenner, arcade (I don't really know why I hate the concept, but I really really do. It doesnt help that the idea has been done by several of the franchises which drew heavy inspiration from Aliens).

Bonus: The wall bass from the arcade game. Purely because I have no idea how you could even approach making it look good, or serve a purpose in play.

On a more possitive note I realised there is a model I would actually really like. I would love to see an interpretation of HR Giger's concept for Alien3, a design which inspired the Kenner 'Night Couger' toy.

I 100% agree with this, I understand they were made fore variety in enemies etc but let's face it Zombies are over done and including them drags down the uniqueness of the AvP Universe.

Though I can see them being included via the Prometheus force if ever made.

New born I feel deserves Special character for Aliens status but I'd personally not get it preferring Ripley 8 or a better Hybrid.

Even if I like strange aliens (like the New Born, even if I'm not waiting for him, because I think he as nothing to do with the AVP concept), I hope that a lot of Kenner Alien never become a model because some of them are very ugly :

http://avp.wikia.com/wiki/Swarm_Alien

http://avp.wikia.com/wiki/King_Alien

http://www.toyarchive.com/Aliens/Toys/A ... oose1.html

And some non-kenner toy too :

http://www.toyarchive.com/Aliens/Toys/FakeSpiney.html
(or the flasher alien...)

It's the same for the kenner Predators :

http://www.figurerealm.com/actionfigure.php?FID=4126

And there is this strange cyborg from the Kenner Hyve Wars Toy line :

http://www.figurerealm.com/actionfigure ... e=integer3

From the comics, I doesn't have read it a lot, but I hope we will never see the Darkling Alien from Witchblade VS Darkness VS Aliens VS Predators :

I don't like the white hybrid to :

http://avp.wikia.com/wiki/White_hybrid? ... d_king.jpg

Aliens Infestation was a very cool game but the space-jockey alien was very ugly :

I don't like the Chrysalis from capcom arcade game AVP :

And I have the same opinion about them.

And I hope that a lot of aliens of this game never appear as mini :

http://avp.wikia.com/wiki/Aliens_%281990_video_game%29

I think I have made a big list...

(And I forgot some, I'm sure...)

Luckily I believe that Fox will only allow the good and mostly cannon models get through.

Glad that the jockey alien can't happen as its design is based on what we now know to be the engineers suit.

I really want to see the Snake Alien, or the hybrid from aliens Resurrection . The rifles used in Aliens Resurrection would be cool too.

Agreed on all fronts, apart from the Snake Alien. The Kenner one was shite but I absolutely cannot hate on the concept. Although I think we've already had this conversation.

Never seen the 4 armed predator, maybe because of MC/WZ Brotherhoods Crusifier, and Mishimas Demon Hunter I quite like this guy. Also as I`m a Horror Zombie fan, yep I like those too in the right way and style. I`m sold on a company like Weyland profiting from the dead as the ultimate soldier. Every other I agree with you guys there`s a lot I would not like to see. I`d like Elloise but not her rag tag army. I really think we need some civilians and scientists.
Cheers all.
