Resident Evil 5 themed lighters look awesome, cost a lot

3:40 PM on 03.30.2009 // Brad Nicholson

As an avid smoker, I’m always looking for a hot videogame product to light my cigarettes. Unfortunately, videogame boxes don’t have the capability to emit flame or even provide a simple strike surface. Plus, you know, they’re pretty bulky.

But, hey, Capcom has got me covered ... kind of.

Above is a picture of two hot new Resident Evil 5 themed Zippos. As you can see, they’re stylish and metal -- essentially the perfect lighters. I would love to have one of these, however, there are two problems. The lighters are only available on Capcom's Japanese store. I can’t imagine North Americans can get their hands on them easily. Also, they’re very pricey. The lighter on the left side of the header is $73, while the one on the right is $128.

Even if I were to buy one of these, I would lose it to the bowels of my couch within a week. Still, though, these things are pretty. What do you guys think?
