WONG ALIEN : MONDO


I love this Mondo poster by Pascal Blanché for tomorrow's "Alien Day" Celebration.... but am frustrated that the eggs do not look like they did in 'Alien'.

Instead, they appear to have a shape more akin to the eggs in 'Alien: Covenant'.

Here is Giger's original eggs from 'Alien'.




This is what the egg looks like in 'Covenant':



Comparisons: Alien/Mondo/Covenant
Notice the silhouette differences.


Mondo and Covenant's eggs are more teardrop in shape.


The only reason why I take issue is because this is specifically tributing Ridley Scott's 'Alien' movie. Similarly, if you're doing a poster for 'Return of the Jedi', don't have Snowtroopers fighting Gungans.
