“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.
