    I don't like the side view images, but the Optimus front view and the autobot symbol are very nice. I could see these domestically released.

    Now there's a great fucking product to sell at TRU. That's a disgrace.

    These are promoting violence! Little boys and girls will burn each other up! We need to put an orange cap on the flint, so that we can protect them from potential harm!

    Shouldn't have said it; somebody might think I'm actually serious and start some f#$%ing anti-Transformer lighter campaign.

    Still heated up from the Masterpiece Megatron issue.

    kukuku...

    Don't you know? Kids need these lighters so that they can light their dynamite fuses. How else can they reinact Starscream and the other 'Cons blowin' crap up?

    I think they are selling them as a collectable, not for use as an actual lighter. I mean where should they sell them? Gas stations?

    I would agree though that they shouldn't sell them to kids.

    Optimus' side view looks like a freakin' PELICAN! Is that where the Autobots keep all their fish??? Nice work, Bay... NOT!
    Front view Prime looks like a stonerbot - Optimus Chronic.

    If I still smoked, I would buy a Zippo with a Decepticon symbol. Cool idea, and yes, strange that they are being sold at Toys r Us.

    I'm quite disappointed that there's not one with the 'Con logo on it :(
