When Crossbows Are Outlawed, Only Outlaw Lamps Will Have Daryl Dixon’s Crossbow



Now here’s a light fixture that will make me bolt…straight to the bank so I can get the money to own this Walking Dead illuminator. If I were the dad in A Christmas Story, this is the lamp I’d want as a very special award.

It is decorative only, so if a real zombie attack happens, don’t just think you can break the base off and use it as a weapon. But feel free to daydream to that effect.

For $71.99, it seems like it ought to come with a light bulb. I’m guessing it doesn’t because the manufacturers are concerned that if Daryl’s light dies, you riot…and they don’t want it to be against them.
