Buy Your Very Own T-Virus Vial

image

Resident Evil fans with an urge to blow 3800 bucks are invited to check out an eBay auction for an original T-Virus vial used in the movie Resident Evil: Extinction.

"Direct from the set of Resident Evil: Extinction comes the very very key virus tube!" the auction description says. "This is one of the most sought after movie collectibles from this franchise and is yours to bring home today. This is a glass vial with non-removable metal end caps with empty spiraling inner glass tubes. (One of the tubes is loose) This measures approximately 4.75" x 1.5" and is screen used."

One of the tubes is loose and they want 3800 bucks for the thing? It doesn't even include any residual T-Virus gunk. In fact, it looks kind of like something put together by a bored kid during a slow half-hour in shop class. But it's apparently the real deal and that means it'll cost you almost four grand to bring it home.

Of course, if you're the cheap sort (and don't happen to have access to a kid who gets bored in shop class) but still want some of that Resident Evil ambiance in your home, you could always give Avon a ring. The cosmetic company's new Derma-Full X3 Facial Filling Serum looks suspiciously like the Umbrella Corporation's handiwork. Will it really reduce the look of deep folds and give you more youthful fullness in the cheek areas in only two weeks? Or will it in fact turn you into a necrotic, hyper-aggressive bio-organic weapon permanently gripped with psychotic rage and hunger?

Probably the youthful fullness thing, I suppose. But it's still an interesting package design.

Wait, $3800 for a broken glass vial! Despite the fact it's a movie prop, who would shell out that much cash for that?

I give it two weeks, and someone will post a home-made version you can make for under a hundred bucks.

Fan'tards...

If you pay for this you really need to get out of the house more, hell at the local comic shop theres a life size statue of yoda with light up light saber for less then this (think its around 1,000 something, may have read it wrong though)...

no one would buy something like that
the movie wasnt that amazing
i always found the games to be hellish better
if they happen to be selling the first copies ever made of the entire game collection for 3800, id believe that
but for a vial?

and lmao at Avon!
my sis has that cream XP

Avon is actually a subdivsion of Umbrella, hence all the pretty women wearing bearly any clothes, just like in Resident Evil

Hmm i dunno i would buy it, if it was real......Zombie time!

*goes to make an offer on eBay*

How can you not want that?

I would buy this if it was around 500-ish, but 3000? It's a cool ass prop but not THAT ****ing cool...

Haha, if you click on the link it says that "One of the tubes is lose." its broken and still worth that much. I'd also only want it if I could open it (you cant) and use it to drink chocolate milk out of. (Chocolate milk rocks)
^_^

wow the person who buys this is an idiot really I saw a life size statue of the power armor from fallout 3 for $350 at the liquidation sale for the virgin mega store in new york and I would much rather have that than this piece of junk.

A virus with DNA that big would have problems infecting people...or anything smaller than an elephant!

Although of course, this is on par with Umbra corp's school of bioengineering (located next door to their business school).

You wouldn't imagine how many stares I get for spurting out, "Zombies!" when those Avon commercials come up in a crowded female dorm lounge.

Be careful, she might turn into a zombie.

........dude i bought one like this a few weeks ago.....FOR 100 DOLLERS i could make one of these in my sleep.

No! You're supposed to keep it and use it for making threats.

"Give me your lunch money or I will make your mom a zombie!"

I'd prefer to buy my very own Frostmourne.

I knew this was going to be about the Avon thing.. but that's so two weeks ago. Way to be behind the times. tsk tsk tsk. heh.

The economy is so bad it's officially cheaper to found your own multinational pharmaceutical company, develop the T-virus, and create fancy little glass vials to contain it.

Plenty of movie props have sold for frankly embarassing amounts of money before. This is by no means new.

Maybe it comes with the actual T Virus.

any one who has no life or anyone who wants to make a profit in the future. movie props appreciate in value if kept in good nick.

my brother bought one. they are very heavy. but freaking awesome as well.

I'd buy it if it contained the actual T-Virus for that price.

Maybe it has the virus in it.

YA BLEW IT

As cool as having a geek prop like a T-Virus vial would be, there are two marring factors here:
1) It's $3,800... my uncle got one of Sir Ian McKellen's swords from "The Lord of the Rings" for less than $2,000 (one he actually used in the movie, I add).
2) It's from "Resident Evil: Extinction." Do I really have to say more? I'd fork out cash for something from the first movie, but not that one.

i'll think it would be cheaper to buy a monkey lock it in a cage let it watch horrible things then bite me and be infected with ''rage'' ....

maybe...

No one? I mean, even if you think those are the greatest movies ever and loved the RE game series, 3800 is still too high.

Is it possible to fill it up with something of your own?

Lets see. . .3800 for a movie prop that really won't gain much value or. . .

shes a vegetarian, so in a way, that might end up being really dammed funny :P

Meh, even if it's a prop from the movie, it's broken. As stated above, a fanmade version will likely be out really soon and cost a lot less.
