Could the first one just be a skeleton?

Maybe, but I doubt it.

its just that if it was a skeleton then why would it look a little meaty and it does have the air sacks on its sides.

First one does look like a skeleton. If it is just an emaciated specimen, someone needs to feed it...quickly.

I already made a topic about that.

Oops, sorry I didn't know about your topic.

But this is a good thing to make a topic about :)

Movie fan, good topic and analysis. There are competing topics on every conceivable concept of Alien: Covenant that we can imagine and there is crossover on most.

Edgy Name does have a good side-by-side look that accentuates the difference (that we can see).

I'm starting to think we got it all wrong about the drawings.

We should assume that the early facehuggers looked nothing like they do now. Therefore, these are probably facehuggers too:

Or could they be something else?

Maybe those are close ups of the spores. Or the tiny worms that led to the Trilobite that David mutated into bigger versions (facehuggers)

Indeed there is about 5 different kinds that we can make out... maybe its just 4.

Edgy i could tell you about those photos but then i would have to kill you ;)

Edgy, those pics look like something I read about in  another thread that warned of spoilers. I could be completely wrong too.

I just wonder how does David test each type of hugger?

certainly a mystery indeed ;)

Dont worry DK that was me, and well i have to be completely Wrong LOL

Indeed Movie fan there would be no point and no way to know the outcome if there are no Hosts unless David is creating Eggs and Face Huggers until...

"well now that finally looks perfect, now its time to test it, best go and try and send a signal as i need some hosts"

Unless he has tested them on various native animals on Paradise, but does not know what the outcome of a Humanoid would be?

The big Kicker though is the Workshop, which the Props including the one of your Profile Photo... have Human Baby Fetus/New Born Skulls.

so the BIG QUESTION....

Where did David get those from, and are they from Long Dead Baby Engineers? what could he experiment with the Skulls from Burnt to Crisp Baby Engineers?

If he obtained actual Live Babies though... then this would greatly help with his experiments.

He probably found live engineers or humans and started to experiment on them.

When he got done with a subject he disposed of them, he kept the baby sculls as a keepsake.

I feel most sorry for Shaw who probably got the worst experiment of all...
