According to the Hollywood Collectibles Group website, Terminators are actually powered by a nuclear fuel cell embedded in their chest. Do you remember that scene in T3 where Arnie digs his out of his chest and tosses it out the window when they’re driving through the desert? Yeah, that was a terrible movie. Hey Terminator? Do you now know why I cry?

But if you’re a still a fan of anything greater than T2, you can now own a miniature replica of those very same nuclear fuel cells as seen in Terminator Salvation (I assume) without the risk of massive radiation poisoning. Because instead of any radioactive materials, the lighter is filled with butane, and instead of bringing a Terminator to life, it can be used to light cigarettes and kill humans.

It’s available for pre-order on the HCG website for just $19.99, and is expected to ship sometime in the 2nd quarter of 2009.

And I guess I’ll declare this unofficial movie tie-in Wednesday here on OhGizmo!
