I think there could be a chance of these getting released, but just to keep myself from being disappointed, I'm gonna assume that these are abandoned prototypes for now. I would be legitimately surprised if Alien Conquest makes a comeback.
It's just that Lego basically answered my only two gripes with the original line up: The only thing I thought was lacking one either side was a heavy, offensive ship for the aliens (not the Tripod because it was somewhat light and could detatch from it's guns, and not the abductor because it had no "weapons" to speak of (for the most part, big weapons weren't even present in the mothership). Both were perfect as they were and I wouldn't change anything about them but the Aliens lacked real "muscle".) And a cheap, medium/small jet/flying-vehicle for the ADU (their smallest flying ship came in the largest set, which I still don't have (it also came with the smallest saucer), and the only other flying ADU vehicle was the Jetcoptor, which was their flying muscle.) These two sets would complete the theme perfectly. I too am going to consider them cancelled, but I'd love to see better picks of them nonetheless.
Does it look like the one with the ADU flyer would come along with a small saucer like the one in the ADU Mobile Base?
