Awhile back there was a X-COM fansite called X-Command, I'm sure some of you old tymers remember it. The site is now closed. Anyway, I remembered there was a section dedicated to Deleted material from X-Com Games, (or something to that extent) I recall seeing a backdrop image of an alien that resembled a Shark or Sharkman but was removed by Mythos. Does anyone happen to have that image or know of where I might be able to locate it? Gimme some feed back mates! Cheers.

I support this man's claim of the existence of XCommand! I recall it also featured some sweet animated GIFs of walking Spitters. I don't recall the Shark stuff, though.

Ah XCommand - that's where I hail from. I think the deleted material has been saved and archived here somewhere, but now that I go to look for it, can't seem to find it.

I think the shark man was used in one of the early promos of the game, but was cut in the end.

Thanks m8s! I knew I had seen it before, shame they didn't include the sharkman into the game, that would of been badass!

I still use it for reference every now and then.

Other "aliens" that got cut were some variants of the Tentaculat zombies. There was a plan to have infected troopers retain their armour - they'd've looked about the same, but with zombie heads. The sprites made it into the final game but aren't used.
