Everyone these days is aware that May the 4th is Star Wars Day, but less folks know the Alien franchise has an unofficial online holiday too. April 26th marks Alien Day simply because of the planet in the movie where the Nostromo crew discovered xenomorph eggs. The planet goes by the designation LV-426. So, April 26.
And to commemorate the day Lt. Ellen Ripley kicked some slimy alien butt, the folks at Mondo are offering some fantastic new items celebrating Ripley, the xenomorph, and even Jones the cat! Since 4/26 falls on a weekend this year, Mondo will kick off the celebration and put the Alien Day collection on sale starting on Friday, 4/24, at the Mondo Shop.
