Hi,

Just looking to get some opinions on what is the best print of Alien to get framed up? There are a lot to choose from just looking for any feedback on what and why etc.
Thanks

This is where I plug my Ken Taylor Alien auction. :) Can't go wrong with the classic egg illustration and full credit block. Mine also has signatures from some of the cast members.

That's not even the best Ken Taylor. This is obviously the winner.

I think the egg is a classic Alien image, so it has broader appeal. It is also more movie poster-esque, so if someone were to display one alternative movie poster for Alien, that would be a good one.

If likenesses are your thang, then the Taylor Alien II is great. I am selling the egg and keeping Alien II, mostly because I got the latter signed by Sigourney.

Both are great. It's all the newer ones I haven't really looked into besides tonight. Haven't seen many frame jobs on the new ones either.

Ansin's Alien is pretty underrated. I think it's a nice one, especially the reg.

Gotta go with Kramerica on this being the best Taylor, although both are great.

But, I'd love to see IJ's get the proper treatment. It's one of the best movie prints for ages.

The one that you personally like the most is the best one for framing.

Right. Thanks for that. There have been a ton since the year or so I've been EB so just wanted to get peoples thoughts or see if maybe they had seen one framed up.

Someone had some pics on fb where they framed it backlit with led lights that could change color. It was programmable and everything. Pretty damn slick.
