A while back, I found some lamps that were pretty reminiscent of the ghosts from Pac-Man. However, they weren’t officially-licensed, and they looked really cheaply made. On the other hand, these new Pac-Man lamps are totally official, plus they look like they’re well built and have a few other tricks up their sleeves. Ghosts do have sleeves, don’t they?
These ghosts have one big feature absent from the cheaper clones from last year. Each official Pac-Man ghost lamp includes a wireless remote control, which lets you set your ghost to one of sixteen colors. Want Blinky red? Check. Inky cyan? Yap. Pinky pink? Absolutely? Clyde orange? Indeed. Blue ghost blue? Of course. You can even make up new ghost colors and names. Personally, I like the idea of a purple ghost named “Barney”.
You can also set the lamps to blink, flash, dim, fade and strobe modes if you like ghosts at your raves. The ghosts also look like they’re floating above the surface of your desk for added effect.
The Pac-Man ghost lamp is available now over at Firebox for about $56(USD), and if you order now, you should be able to get one in hand in time for Christmas gift-giving.
Now all we need is a Pac-Man lamp to go with, and we’ll be all set.
