I can’t say that I’ve ever seen an official collectible collection quite like this Alien/Zippo combination. It’s available in a limited edition of 8,000 complete units and is sold in an eight shipment subscription series. That is to say, you’ll get one lighter at a time for $39.99 (arrives “every month or two”), with the illuminated display arriving on the third shipment.
