Grimmjow is back..

Journal Entry: Fri Apr 24, 2015, 4:59 PM
So.. I think I might just be the only one who really doesn't care that Grimmjow is back. 
Sure he is a pretty cool character, and his return is a blast from the past.. but that's bout all it is, it's his "Return" not a "Sudden Return" nor a "Climatic Return" (as far as i'm concerned).

Pretty much everyone already knew Grimmjow was set to make an appearance from the glimpses we saw of him earlier in this arc (cept for the most ignorant of people), but to me personally I feel as though Kubo dragged it out too long, he should have brought him back much earlier, especially when the opponents were closer to Grim's level. 

What exactly can Grimmjow hope to accomplish now other then momentarily distracting one of the elite guards? As much as I hate to admit it these Quincy are leagues above the Espada, even some of their
more ridiculous members like Mask would likely have been able to take down Starrk (It's true, do the math) and even if Grimmjow has somehow managed to become STRONGER then Starrk (which sounds completely ridiculous) he still wouldn't be able to stand up to the Elites, which would arguably be able to take out Mask with minimal effort..

...Unless Grimmjow has found something in Hueco Mundo/Been given a SUPERDUPERARRANCARBOOSTERSERUM by Urahara, I can't see how he would (Logically) be able to do anything at all, buuut since Kubo doesn't really care about consistency and is just trying to win the fanboys over Grimmjow will probably just be super strong without an explanation. 

So, in short: 

Grimmjow is awesome? yes. 
Grimmjow is powerful? No, not really 
Grimmjow is going to be inexplicably powerful? *sigh* prolly

Cain Predator Repaint WIP by Arrancarfighter
Cain Predator Repaint WIP

Current progress on my first Predator repaint, attempting to make my "Cain" Predator character. Well it has taken a lot more time then I thought it would, so far it has turned out rougher then I would have liked but i'm going to try to clean it up, especially the netting that I colored with sharpie. I'm going to try to sculpt some armor and weapons for him tonight to make him look more like my original drawing.

Bio: Cain was once a member of the Enforcers, which are the equivalent of Yautja Police. The Enforcers are trained for the specific purpose of maintaining order within the Yautja society, as such they have mastered the art of capturing and eliminating Yautja that go against the law. They are the Predators that Predators fear. Enforcers are recruited at a very young age and from that point on are forbidden to interact with the public, they follow a very strict set of rules different then those of the rest of society. Unlike normal Yautja which partake in trophy hunting the Enforcers typically only hunt others of their kind and for that reason the ranking system within their Order is different.

Among the Order Cain was one of the most experienced and well respected warriors, but he betrayed his brothers and defected, which is considered one of the most heinous and punishable of crimes. To make matters worse when he abandoned the Order he came upon the Bad Blood clan known as the Dark Blades and after slaying it's former leader took over. The once barbaric group had been reformed it into a dangerous and well informed organization.

Prehistoric Yautja WIP by Arrancarfighter
Prehistoric Yautja WIP
Quick sketch I did for a "Prehistoric" Yautja

I've always had this crack-theory that the Yautja were once a primitive race similar to earlier man, the Engineers discovered their planet and decided to infuse them with their DNA (Similar to what they did to earlier humans in the opening of the original concept for "Alien: Engineers") thus boosting their Evolution and making them intelligent enough to be used as slaves for the Engineers. At this point the concept takes on somewhat of a "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" route, the Yautja become smarter then the Engineers intended and revolt, forcing their former masters from Yautja Prime and making use of the technology left behind, eventually mastering it and creating their own by studying it.

Perhaps the Engineers would go on to make the same mistake with the human race, and so they created the weaponized Xenomorph in an attempt to get rid of both mistakes.

Beluga Xenomorph WIP by Arrancarfighter
Beluga Xenomorph WIP
Attempted to draw the Beluga Xenomorph as seen in the scrapped concept artwork for Alien: Engineers, a masterpiece of a movie concept which would go on to be mutilated and deformed, eventually becoming the vastly less awesome film Prometheus. 

As taken from the Wiki: 


"The Beluga-Xenomorph, also known as the "Holloway Alien" after its host, was a Xenomorph creature cut from Prometheus early in its production. In Jon Spaihts' original script, titled Alien: Engineers, the creature stalked and killed several crew members of the Magellan. Its role was entirely written out of the finished film.

Unlike other Xenomorphs, which are encased in rigid, black exoskeletons, the Beluga-Xenomorph is described as being ivory white and boneless, the latter of which allows it to alter its body shape and become a gelatinous, amorphous blob, allowing it to squeeze through gaps that would otherwise be too small for it. Its skin is vaguely translucent, and at the front of its elongated skull, a human-like skull can be seen beneath. It has long, spindly limbs, and jaws that can lever forwards out of its mouth (a trait given to the Deacon in Prometheus)"

More information on Alien: Engineers can be found here: avp.wikia.com/wiki/Alien:_Engi…

In Spaihts original script the "Beluga Xenomorph" was hinted at being the original form/source of the typical Xenomorphs that we all know and love. This would imply that the Beluga's were their own species that the Engineers discovered and "Weaponized", modifying them and improving them to be used for warfare. 

This makes sense, as it seems like the Engineers bestowed many of their traits onto their Xenomorph such as their dark exoskeletons which bare a striking resemblance to the chair suits worn by the Engineers (Alternatively, their suits might have been made AFTER weaponizing the Xeno's, made to be able to withstand the Xeno's acidic blood). 

When I first read the information presented I was confused as to why the Engineers would have taken away the Xeno's ability to alter their body shape, until I realized that they probably did this as a way to control them, as a Body-Altering Xenomorph would be too dangerous to use as efficient tools.

Engineer Hound by Arrancarfighter
Engineer Hound
An "Engineer Hound" (Or what I refer to them as anyways) first seen in Prometheus: Omega from the Fire & Stone comic series. 

All of the entries in the series are awesome, especially the interesting aliens depicted in them.
I wish that they would have taken the time to explain some of the creatures, but given the limited space that the series provided I understand why most were only given short appearances and information regarding them was kept to a minimum.
I have no connection to those involved in the creation of the series, but I thought that I would attempt to draw each of the creatures and perhaps come up with a brief explanation as to what they are/how they came to be.

First on the list are what I call "Engineer Hounds" (although they appear more like Alien Pigs/Hogs but that just doesn't have the same ring to it).
If you look closely at these odd little devils they bear a striking resemblance to the Engineers, which leads me to believe that they are directly related to them rather then something born from the black goo on LV223. 
When first encountered by the protagonists the hounds seemed to be feeding on strange "fruit" growing within the "Cave" but quickly turn their attention to the human intruders upon noticing them. This could mean that (Like Pigs, Humans and Bears) the hounds are omnivorous, or that the "fruit" was more fauna then flora, which is possible as this is not Earth and thus we can't classify any of the species with the same accuracy that we would Earth dwelling lifeforms. 

They seemed relatively easy to kill and didn't seem to posses acidic blood like Xenomorphs, or at least to the same degree. Also worth noting is that like most of the other creatures on LV223 their blood appeared Red rather then Green (Which I found odd, I wonder if this was done by accident?) even stranger is that this trait is shared with creatures that are far more Xenomorph-like then the hounds, such as the "Deacon Sharks" which also had red blood.
In past entries the protagonists had encountered a new breed of "Runner" Xenomorph, is it possible that they were created by infecting Engineer Hounds or from the large Bull-like creatures seen prior? I guess all we can do is speculate, only the creators know for sure. 

Any suggestions are welcome, I will try to get to them when I have time. Although most people probably aren't as interested in the species depicted in the Fire & Stone series if YOU are please feel free to comment below as I would be happy to discuss and hear other people'e thoughts and opinions. 

NECA has made a figure of the Predator Ahab from the Fire & Stone series, I would like to see them make more eventually but I doubt they will, as such I plan on attempting to make my own by sculpting and customizing. The Engineer Hound is one that I would be very interested in trying to make.
