Insight Editions Presents ALIEN: THE WEYLAND-YUTANI REPORT
I am a huge fan of the ALIEN franchise even the bad. If you ask anyone that know me they will tell you that I am obsessed with the film ALIENS. When I found out that Insight Editions released an amazing collectors book I just had to share it with you all!
For hundreds of years now, scientists at the Weyland-Yutani Corporation have been monitoring the behavior of an alien life-form so powerful that its potential for military application appears limitless. Although all attempts to harness the beast’s abilities have ended in appalling bloodshed, the acquisition of the Xenomorph remains a priority.
As such, Weyland-Yutani has granted you access to their detailed files on the alien in the hope that you will be able to help capture and subjugate one of these fascinating yet deadly creatures. Alien: The Weyland-Yutani Report is the first item to be produced in the thrilling new collaboration between Sideshow Collectibles and Insight Editions. Featuring a striking sculpted slipcase that captures the ferocious power of the Xenomorph, the book is designed to look as if it has been wrapped in the skin of the iconic creature. This slipcase sculpt is the first of its kind and unique to this exclusive edition of the book.
The interior of the book utilizes specially commissioned illustrations and thirty-five years of Alien movie concept art and film stills to create a deeply engrossing reading experience that explores the nature of the Xenomorph in unparalleled detail. Alien: The Weyland-Yutani Report also contains extensive information on the characters, locations, vehicles, and weapons from the movies, along with an in-depth breakdown of the Xenomorph’s life cycle.
Doesn’t this just sound really impressive? They made the book look just like a Xenomorph. It’s as if they took a Xenomorph and used its skin to create the stunning cover! The illustrations, concept art, and detailed information about the Xenomorphs, the weapons, and vehicles, look really cool. They played a big role in the ALIENS film so to be able to read about them is really cool. I seriously think I’m gonna have to get myself a copy of this book. It’s just beautiful.
The book also features a wealth of inserts and removable items, including:
• Pvt. Hudson’s discharge papers
• Veterinarian report on Jonesy the cat
• Medical report on facehugger victim Marachuk, John J.
• Carter J. Burke’s communication card
• Chest X-ray showing Xenomorph implantation
• Bug Stomper Dropship sticker
• Exclusive extracts from prisoner Morse’s tell-all novel, Space Beast
Insight Editions is “Covering all aspects of this hugely popular franchise’s thirty-five-year history, Alien: The Weyland-Yutani Report – Collectors’ Edition is the ultimate book for fans, delivered in a format that collectors will love.”
