Pac-Man Ghost Lamps


Yes, the Pac-Man merchandise just keeps coming – the latest being these rather wonderful Pac-Man Ghost Lamps.

Take your pick from white, red, blue and yellow, all shaped like those Pac-Man ghosts and using 20 to 40w bulbs for the light. We're talking mood light here obviously – not sure it's ideal as a work or bedside reading lamp to be honest.

If you want one (or more), ThinkGeek is selling them online, each one retailing for $69.99, which is around £44.
