    CBD is excited to announce an exclusive opportunity for its members - your chance to purchase an Artist Proof Alien Cinemaquette, complete with Paul Komoda’s stunning concept base!
    George Sohn is offering to sell a limited number of Artist Proof Aliens from his private inventory.
    These Artist Proofs are limited in number to ten, of which eight are being made available exclusively to CBD.
    The package includes one Artist Proof Alien (painted and finished by the Cinemaquette team), and both the concept base and the original base. As per the usual release, the rear of the original base and COA feature Giger’s signature. In keeping with his own policy, George will personally sign both bases to certify them official Artist Proof editions.
    The price for the whole package is $3,000 plus shipping. This is a very limited, one time opportunity for CBD members to own the rarest of rare Alien collectables. These Aliens can only be purchased through George, and will not be made available through the Cinemaquette website.
    The pieces should be available to ship to buyers by mid-September.
    To reserve a piece simply email along with your CBD username, name, preferred email address, telephone number and country.
    Once the eight are accounted for, Steve will pass details through to George who will then make contact with buyers directly.
    To protect buyer confidentiality Steve won’t post the names of buyers here, merely update as places are filled. A further announcement will be made once all eight are gone.
    Thanks everyone!

    Q Can I purchase the concept base alone for my existing Alien?
    A The bases are not available separately as the holes which take the foot pegs are drilled specifically to match each Artist Proof Alien.
    Q Will my Artist Proof look like the one in the pictures?
    A All of the pieces are hand finished to the same exacting standard.
    Q Which number will I receive?
    A You will receive an Artist Proof numbered between three and ten on a first-come-first- served basis.
    Q What shipping methods are available?
    A The piece can be shipped by ground or air. Buyers are responsible for all import fees and duties.
    Q Can I contact Cinemaquette directly about this offer?
    A Please refrain from contacting the Cinemaquette office as this is a private sale by George.
    Q How will I know if I’ve secured this piece?
    A CBD will rescind all other priorities to ensure buyers are contacted swiftly to confirm their place.
    Q What if I don’t make the first eight but still want this piece?
    A Your name will be added to a waitlist in case of cancellations.
    Q When will payment be taken?
    A Just before the piece is due to ship, although George will confirm with individuals.
    Q I thought the Aliens were all sold out – what gives?
    A These are Artist Proof editions from George’s private inventory. This is not a re-issue. When these Aliens are gone, there are no more, and like in space, no one will hear you scream.
    Q What is the concept base made from?
    A I have confirmed that it’s got an outer layer of protein polysaccharides. It has a funny habit of shedding its cells and replacing them with polarized silicon, which gives it a prolonged resistance to adverse environmental conditions, making it a tough little son of a bitch. :)
