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!

Just rocking Aliens today. I saw a few good shots of Hudsons hinge tattoo during the dropship "ultimate badass" scene...

No screenshots sorry.

Could this be a sticky?

Had to look all the way back to page 15 to find this thread. :shock:

Been a while since I've seen, let alone posted in this thread… nice to see it's still going strong and lots of new posts I hadn't seen! I may have a thing or two to add later on... Just want to make sure it hasn't been covered already!

I believe Drake's hat says "THIS END UP", not "SIDE".

Apone has a tattoo on his left forearm but I can't make out what it says/is. Could be a real tattoo.

As good a place as any to ask I guess. Stumbled across this pic of Dietrich and am wondering what that pouch is above the VP70 holster?

It is just her standard 'small pouch', but it does look funny there. I think it is just squished and tilted back so you can't make out the top flap.

In these images it is a bit more clear that it is the 'standard' one.

Another 'prison' tat for everyone's favorite badass with a troubled past? Why does that name sound familiar?

Looks like you guys put a lot of hard work in to this! Wish we had all this info when we were at Alien War in 1993! We did have some of the orgiginal screen used costume/armour/props but not much . Well done to all of you !!

Here's the replica set ive seen it on.


Just watched the Blu-Ray... verdict is in.

100% CONFIRMED. The Vinyle above Hicks' "cup" absolutely undoubtedly says "NON-TOXIC". I can't get clean screen grab of it, but when Frost says "Yo Hicks" in the medlab (prior to discovering Newt) and Hicks walks over to look at the tracker screen, its clear as day on the Blu Ray. On the DVD not so much, but BluRay shows it pretty clear when you know what your looking for.


Yes confirmed, I remember it on tone of the 2 screen used sets definitely said non toxic

Does anyone know what paracord knot that is that Drake has around his neck. its the same knot as hudson.

I remember terry English telling me he tied the knot on hudsons knife scabbard, he and his brother did quite a bit of the customising I think, I haven't spoken to Terry for a few years.

I seem to recall when I mentioned the teardrop tattoo in the context of being a murder/killing mark. Someone also commented it is also used if a gang member is imprisoned when a fellow member is killed and they are unable to attend the funeral!



Tear drop has garnered a lot of different meanings over the years. Also can be a mark of someone who has been err used so to speak the tattoo isn't always voluntary.

So I asked Mark Rolston (via Twitter) about the odd glyph on Drake's glove. His response:

"It was a silhouette in pink paint of a pair of breasts. What was I thinking IDK? James Cameron just threw us into a room to personalize"

Now that he said it I can't believe I'd missed it!

HAHAHA! OK, I remember a few years ago, here, discussing it... My brain thought "That kind of looks like... boobs... Nahhh!" hahaha

Nice one, retro!
