One major highlight of the event happens to be a ‘full-size prototype Xenomorph costume’ from 1979’s Alien, which was designed by Academy Award-winner H.R. Giger.

The prototype, which the press release stated was ‘long believed to have been lost and destroyed,’ was the first iteration of the creature presented to Alien director Ridley Scott.

Unfortunately, the translucent nature of the prototype did not appear to pass the ‘comprehensive lighting and camera tests were conducted by the pre-production team.’

The prototype is ‘now considered the rarest and most elusive artifact from the blockbuster film franchise,’ according to Julian’s Auctions.

After the translucent variation of the Xenomorph was rejected, Giger went on to create the famous depiction of the creature that fans would forever associate with the fear-filled franchise.
