Here are some types of pre existing types of xenomorphs from the comics and video games that I think would make great apearances in future alien movies.

1: preatorian guard.  the biggest and smartest type of xenonmorphs other than the queen. What makes these so interesting and scary is that they are far bigger than average xenomorphs but still small and agile enough to sneak up on you in a dark hallway. they are also sometimes thoght to be like a juvinile form of a queen. having them in a movie would expand the xenomorph lore but would also be terrifying.

2:the crusher. the chrusher is a giant 4 legged xenomorph thats main attack method is bashing into things with its giant headrest. although this one would be better in a more action oriented film, it would be really awesome to look at. it would also be able to smash through spaceship pod doars making it almost immpossible to trap within a ship.

3: the spitter. my personal favorite of mine. the spitter usually attacks long range by spitting acid out of the pouchs in its head. this would be terrifing because you would never even see it coming. they are also equiped with an axe like tail. What i think is cool about this one is that one spitter attack on a ship and the whole ships hull gets burned through creating a space vacuum.

4: the gorrilamorph. this was seen in the comics once and had a kenner and neca toy design.

the reason Why I like this one is because it would be completely logical for the corperation to use gorrilas as hosts. for one, they are stronger and faster, plus you don't get in trouble for killing anyone. the actually alien also looks really cool and has a hand like taile that can grabb onto things.

that is my list. did you disagree with any of them or have any to add? let me know in the comments.

i think there are some interesting designs but i feel they are more suited to expanded universe Games etc, and going this route could make the Franchise more of a Star Ship Troopers but replace those Bugs with various Xenomorphs.

some of the many designs also seem to be bringing the Xenomorph into Warhammer 40K Tyranid kind of territory however this may have been a interesting idea if the Xenomorph Origins was linked to a related Ancestor Organism that the Engineers came across... and so we find out the Origins are actually from a Organism that is part of a varied kind of Organisms who indeed have Organic Ships... that could have been interesting but  it would have been a Rip-Off of the Warhammer 40K Tyranids.... who in turn were influenced by Aliens anyway.

I do however think if RS get the support and the next movie does well enough to allow RS to live his ambition to make another say 5-6 movies (oh dear)  then yes we could see various forms of Xenomorph as RS had even said that they could EVOLVE HIM which likely means they could play around with different designs.

And some of the Neomorph Concept works was indeed going for various designs and some looked like a Spider and others like a Praying Mantis and so who knows.

I hope RS/FOX get to together and have a Set-in-Stone Plan to understand the various Black Goo Mutations, and more so the Various Xenomorphs and Why.

For Example... Why does the Warriors have a different head to the 1979 Big Chap, why does the Runner have a similar Head to the Big Chap but does not have those Pipe/Tube Dorsal appendages.   How does a Queen become created etc.

With such base rules they can then explore different kinds of Xenomorph, i would say as the Runner and Big Chap have the same kind of Head, and they was Alone... maybe they share the same Purpose compared to a Warrior.  And so maybe Warriors are only gestated once a Hive/Queen are established.

Looking at those Concept works/ideas you had placed we can see that some of these are what we could likely expect depending on what a Face Hugger infects as it takes Traits from the Host.

A lot of those designs however had the kind of read head carapace design of a Queen, and i would have assumed this design/trait is related to a Queen as far as purpose.

The Sideshow King Xenomorph does have a similar Aesthetic, so maybe it donated nobility at a Genetic Level and the Preatorian guard does have that similar look, but i am not sure within the Franchise if there would be need for a like Male to mate with a Queen or the such

I think the Black Goo and its various applications and the various Evolutionary paths it can take, which we can see in Davids Workshop do hold the greater key to varied Xenomorph related Life Forms.

The Ultramorph was just a term to describe a Chest Buster that infects a Engineer, as the Engineers where Superior and Larger Humanoids and so a more Ultimate Host... hence a Ultramorph and so to a degree the Deacon was a Ultramorph and some Ultramorph designs looked like the Deacon and others like the Neomorphs but i do prefer the ones that are close to HR Gigers Necronom 4 and i would Ultimately love to see something like that birthed from a Engineer.

Didn't Fox or RS say they had made something like a 10 page rule book for the Alien Universe?  That way they had some set-in-stone rules to keep things canonical.  That may be what they use to determine the outcome of the new morphs in each film.  And with Fox releasing all of the detailed images/posters of the life cycles, and black goo properties, those would need to match up too I would think, or else no one would trust the info on them.

I agree with BigDave in that I believe most of them are more suited to the expanded universe like comics and stuff.  I loved the preatorian guard in Earth War, but in a movie that would mean for the queen to return and I think there are more interesting ways to g like the ultramorph

The gorillamorph could be interesting with that tail action!

In the Alien Engineers script, David tells Watts "This ship has seven other cargo bays like this one. The eggs in each bay slightly different. They’ve been weaponized" suggesting 7 different types of Alien. So the idea of multiple alien species has been floating around, hopefully we get to see some more.
