The Lighter Side of Resident Evil


Need a smoke after holding off the African zombie hordes? Capcom may just have the answer.

With the latest episode in any big franchise comes the tie-ins, and thankfully this isn’t a Chris Redfield cologne. Instead we’re graced with the ultimate sign of devil-may-care manliness, a Zippo lighter.

If you’re already pandering for this latest piece of Resident Evil merchandise, be warned, this lighter comes with a heavy price tag. 12,390 Yen to be precise, putting it at a mortifying $127.

You could perhaps let that fly if it had an Umbrella Corporation tag on it as well, but the BSAA (Bioterrorism Security Assessment Alliance) just doesn’t carry all that weight, as of yet.

Perhaps you’d be better with matches to burn those zombies.
