The discussion of the Alien series of films and the props used in them is the aim, but if it's got Big Bugs and Big Guns, then they are welcome too!

I'll be there with a crew from my website doing interviews and such (it's a gaming oriented). I don't have a uniform yet, but if I do by the time NYCC rolls around, I'm down for getting together.

Perfect opportunity for an Aliens Legacy Gold Award presentation, as Bill doesn't do many public events like this. :delta:

From what I'm seeing on the website it looks like Paxton will be doing a Q&A about a new graphic novel that he's involved with. But I don't see anything about a signing or anything Aliens related. Let's hope that changes soon!

That might be this film (based on a graphic novel) which has recently been announced:

I was wondering how Bill felt about Aliens now, and worrying that he might be too cool for it all. Not so according to this interview!

http://www.empireonline.com/features/al ... efault.asp

He clearly had a blast and enjoys talking about it. I bet he'll be honored to receive the Gold Award.

I talked to him about it back when I was running big cons and he honestly didn't think anyone would remember him from Aliens.

I will be there in the Dropship Pilot Costume with MattRendar. We will be looking for stand up fights or bug hunts, either or.

well aside from sigorney weaver, bill has had the best career out of his former Aliens cast mates. i was watching Apollo 13 and totally forgot he was in the movie!

So a bunch of guys in Colonial Marine costumes walking into this 'seven holes in swiss cheese' panel wouldn't convince him otherwise? ;)

Just a suggestion :P
