Hello Alien centhusiasts! I got hold of new clips from Alien, Aliens and Alien 3, so AA7 is in the pre-production stage! If anyone got new footage on Alien movies (I still haven't located Alien 8mm cut), please contact me so they can be included on the new set... More info coming soon!

There's a copy of Alien on Super 8mm on sale right now on eBay. Anyone has the tools to transfer it?

I sent Junno a copy of the super 8 film last July for use in the Appendix collection.

Guys, I'm gonna have to insist that you follow the forum rules, in particular this one:

1. No discussions about financial transactions except for the buying, selling, or trading of official retail media.

What you do with your own money off the forum is your business, but we do not condone the buying and selling of bootlegs and I don't want to see that kind of discussion here. Thanks.

Hello! AA7 has just been finished! Unfortunatelly Alien EPK turned out to be a fake description, so it'll have to wait for discovery in the future. Most of the AA7 content is from Australia. I'm the only contributor from the newsgroup which is kind of sad, considering how many high profile alien collectors are members and lack the will or resources to locate/share footage. Anyhow, 7 DVDs of unreleased Alien saga promos is quite an achievement and great supplement to the announced Alien Anthology on Blu-ray later this year. When Ash595 finishes the artwork, AA7 will be uploaded and whoever is interested need to contact me via private message for links...

Alien Super 8 is an official 17 minute cut made for pre-VHS market. Duration was limited due to the length of 8mm film roll. It is quite interesting brutally edited cut with quite different ending. Also viewer winds up watching noses and hearing off screen characters due to aweful 4:3 zoomed in framing without pan & scan. Channel 7 intro is a short segment with Sigourney talking about Alien as an exclusive for Aliens Austarlian TV premiere. Fast forward is 3 minute Australian parody. There is also elaborate 12 minute parody of Aliens called FRENCH & SAUNDERS and recent Aliens/Avatar SNL sketch as an Easter egg...

I didn't realize how old these were, so maybe they made it onto a previous AA, but the last part was only posted about two months ago, so now the whole thing is available.

Nostromo Project - restoration of the Nostromo FX model.

My outlook on life - we’re all on the Hindenburg anyway…no point fighting over the window seat.

Actually this was already an easter egg on AA4, but I guess it's too late for you to do anything about it now... :)

Interested to see what shape your 8mm Alien is in! It sure is tough to get anything watchable out of that release.

I thought the super8 version wasn't going to be included?  When I sent my original copy over to Junno I had asked to get a DV copy back to do color correcting and cleanup as I couldn't do the transfer myself.

Alien Super 8 is from my Australian source and is quite good and much different in quality from the one discussed on the forum. I wasn't aware of FRENCH & SAUNDERS on previous AA disc, but my source is also different so here it is again. Uploading of AA7 will be finished today and links will be mailed to those who sent me  a private message. Thanks to Ash595 for quick response and great artwork...

Thanks so much for making this series. It's phenomenal. Any plans for another appendix?

Thanks! As mentioned earlier this 7th Appendix happened by chance. I don't believe there will be more anytime soon, unless other people start contributing too...

I understand. Your work is really appreciated. I wish I had something to contribute.

Is there any chance someone could please post the cover art for set 6 and 7 (just trying to find a jpg of the front and back)? I found 1-5 on the board. Ash's work is amazing!

I had an idea of doing a visual storybook using the Alien Illustrated Story from Heavy Metal with audio from the film.  But I don't really have the time right now.  Maybe next year.
