Oh wise one, I must know; what are your favorite Xenomorph/Yajuta designs that never made it into any of their respective films? And what are designs you feel are underrated in those franchises and others?

For alien i’d say the alternate fifield was a terrible decision to remove by scott. We could’ve had this bulbous monstrosity, but instead we got slightly mutated astronaut. One of my biggest gripes with prommy is how much it simultaneously rode on alien’s coattails but also wanted to be its own independent movie that don’t need no xenomorph. I went into the movie expecting biomechanical gigerish nightmares and i ended up with giant space squids, vigina cobras and lame mutants (engineers were ok). Prometheus is still a fine movie despite its many flaws, but the creature design elements were very lacking

Predator has a few cool unused concepts but i cant think of anything superior to the final product among the three predator movies, but the alternate mask for P1 is still cool and i wonder if the design would still be as iconic as it is

as far as underrated stuff, the Newborn i feel gets waaay too much hate (along with A:R in general). I find the idea of a giant murderous infant with a capricious personality very unsettling, and its animatronic had an amazing level of personality.
