Sega Zippo Lighters: Hey Man, Your Console is on Fire!

by Paul Strauss

Now I’m not a smoker, but the fact that these Zippo cigarette lighters look like retro Sega consoles might be enough to get me to start. Actually, no. But they might be enough to convince be to buy a lighter that looks like a retro Sega console anyway.


They’re available in both a 16-bit (Mega Drive aka Genesis) and 32-bit (Saturn) versions. And while they will light your cigarettes, they won’t play any games – unless you manage to find a shrink ray and miniaturize your carts down to size. Of course if you had said ray, you’d probably just shrink your entire console collection and stick them all in your pocket. But then you’d be too big to press any of the buttons, and you’d have to shrink yourself. Lather, rinse, repeat until you and your consoles are at subatomic particle size.


But I digress. Want these awesome Sega lighters? You’ll have to save up ¥10,500 for each one (about $114 USD), get out your Japanese-to-English dictionary and head over to NetYou. While you’re doing that, I’ll be working on my shrink ray.

    “doing that, I’ll be working on my shrink ray.”

    I remember a Doraemon gadget about the shrink ray.

    From Zippo Tricks Guy,
    That is a cool zippo but people want more and more. They have to fully work and play cool mini games to be able to sell over $100.. Im still interested..

    Want free zippo wicks and zippo flints?
