PROMETHEUS ENGINEERS CONFUSION


Awhile back I had the above image up on my screen. 
A young coworker walked past and exclaimed, 
"Oh cool! Is that a new Engineer for 'Prometheus 2'?!!!

With sadness and anger in my heart, I politely informed him, 
"No.... this is Bolaji Badejo, the actor who wore the original Giger alien suit in 'Alien'.

"Oh... it looks like an Engineer. 
'Prometheus' was totes beta! Can't wait for the sequel!" 

No Hope for the Future, I tells ya.

Ok boys and girls, gather 'round.....


THIS IS NOT A 'PROMETHEUS' ENGINEER:

^ This is Eddie Powell,
one of the 'Alien' stuntmen in who wore the suit.


THIS IS NOT A 'PROMETHEUS' ENGINEER:
^ This is Tom Woodruff Jr, 
wearing the 'Alien3' suit.


THESE ARE NOT A 'PROMETHEUS' ENGINEERS:
^ These are dudes from 'Dune'.


THIS IS NOT A 'PROMETHEUS' ENGINEER:
^ This is the Space Jockey from 'Alien', 
and is NOT an Engineer.



THIS IS NOT A SON'A 
FROM 'STAR TREK: INSURRECTION':
^ This is an Elder Engineer from 'Prometheus' (deleted scene).


THIS IS A 'PROMETHEUS' ENGINEER:

I do not acknowledge any damage 'Prometheus' does to the "Alien' Mythos.

That is a SPACE JOCKEY. Just as it always was from 1979 until 2012 when 'Prometheus' came out, shitting all over what had come before.
