    The Autobot symbol one is quite nice, but 80 bones is a bit steep, IMO.

    Maybe if I still smoked...

    The lighters themselves are old news, but the original thread is probably a few months old and the pics we had previously (pic pic pic pic) didn't show the level of detail these do. Cool!

    Egads, the prices! Which are really not out of scale with most other Zippos, as I understand it.

    Front paged - thanks!

    I have been looking for a Zippo...But 80 bucks?

    I'll just buy a plain one and put a Transformers sticker on it.

    I'm not sure I like this idea to be honest. To me it just kind promotes smoking, and I don't think Transformers should do that.

    Lighting a cigarette is not the sole purpose of a lighter. For quite a while now modern man has had the ability to make fire without waiting for lightning to strike a tree. Some people are still enjoying the novelty of a small pocket sized item being able to light a stove, light a candle, light license, light a barbecue, light a bonfire, or even arson.

    And plenty of people who don't smoke, carry lighters.

    I wouldn't want to end up in a situation where I needed fire (plane crash, lost in woods, who knows) and I can't start a fire because everyone with me doesn't smoke.

    Plus, when you're stuck in that crazy random survival scenario and people start freakin out wondering how they're going to cannibalize the weak guy without cooking him, you can look awesome and pull out a transformers lighter to get the cooking fire going.

    I would get one if they had a Decepticon or Barracade police logo version.

    Anything with a Barricade logo on is an instant buy for me.

    And yeah, why would they assume the type of folks to buy an expensive lighter wouldn't be more likely to at least half a half/half interest in Decepticons and Autobots. I know when I'm getting ready to set fire to the building at work I'd be more likely to whip out a Decepticon lighter than an Autobot one.

    Not really. I smoke and I've been looking for an Autobot zippo on Ebay but could never find anything but Megatron and Decepticon logos. I'm surprised they finally made Autobot lighters. I guess most smokers are 'Con fans.

    Sadly these are WAY out of my price range.

    perhaps "...to ignite and inflame"

    and yeah, I would be more likely to buy one with the 'Con police badge, but anything more than $20 is a bit much for (what I consider) a novelty item

    These I like... but not at that cost.

    I, too, think it is kinda weird that they have TF Zippos - but as a smoker, it's okay with me.

    No surprise the Autobot logo is already backorder, the Prime ones are tempting though. I concur with fellows that a Decepticon Barricade one would be very very awesome. As towards the price, that's pretty normal for those Japanese licensed collector Zippos.
