    The Autobot logo one's quite nice, but not at that price.
    I wonder if they're actually Zippos? A lot of these lighters aren't, and they're nowhere near as good.

    They are nice but they don't look part of the new movie merchandise, the characters look more like G1

    Also found this Transformers movie cigarette card case lighter on eBay:

    Yeah, imitation Zippos are straight up garbage most of the time.

    I used to sorta-collect these, and if they're official AND can be found for a more reasonable price, I'll get in on one or two.

    EDIT: Also, did Tformers actually find something first?

    Correct.
    We've known about the Zippos for a while, but those are the first pics I've seen.

    Oh Tformers. Using Japanese words to sound smart only works if you use the CORRECT WORD.

    Not only unofficial, it doesn't even look legit. The picture looks like an edit from something else, and the cigarette case is open so you can't see any cover details.

    I do like the Autobot symbol lighter, but jeez louise, $85? Very glad I don't smoke anymore or I might actually have an excuse to buy the thing even tho its that expensive.

    im sorta a Zippo collector myself, and from looking at the pics of the "movie merch" lighters, i am almost completely sure that they aren't Authentic Zippos. the Beveling around the edges of the lighter do not match the Beveling on the Real Mccoy. they are too rounded. they look alright, dont get me wrong, but would probably be best suited on a shelf, rather than in your pocket.

    This is my concern - I don't know enough about Zippos/lighters to determine what's real and what's unlicensed. Heck, I don't even know how to use one.

    Guess we need to hold out for a while until some official ads surface for these.

    For $85 those things better light themselves.

    For the price I would only consider a purchase if they were Zippo and if they had a decepticon symbol version like the autobot one. Otherwise they look cool.
