We know Star Wars Day is coming in May but today it’s time to celebrate another franchise, Alien. What are we talking about? LV-426! The deep space moon serves as the setting of Aliens and today 4/26 aka Alien Day is the perfect time to pay homage to the iconic film.
Ripley and crew have had some interesting if not terrifying adventures and in the spirit of the hit franchise, several retailers are turning their attention to Aliens as they highlight new toys, collectibles and apparel. 2021 also marks the 35th anniversary of the beloved sequel directed by James Cameron.
