Mafia II lamp is the most badass light fixture we've ever seen

The Aug. 24 release of Mafia II is just a couple of weeks away. So to remind us, publisher 2K sent over one of the most simultaneously awesome and ridiculous pieces of swag we’ve ever received: a limited-edition lamp in the shape of an M1911 automatic pistol, one of the many guns that feature prominently in the game.

You may have already heard of these around mid-July, when 2K released photos of Snoop Dogg trying out the game at 2K’s office and proudly displaying his own lamp in front of a couple of Mafia II posters.  And now we have one. Does having a lamp put us in the same class as an international superstar like Snoop? We like to think so.

As you can see in the following pictures, the gun is impressively detailed and looks awfully close to the real thing. It’s a little smaller and a lot lighter, though, and the wide, heavy base and lampshade make it poorly suited to the task of frightening an intruder or keeping it concealed in your jacket as you stalk the mean streets of 1940s Empire Bay. Sadly, the lamps are limited to 200 pieces and won’t be available for sale or as pre-order bonuses, but we can at least give you a closer look:

Above: We’re guessing the lampshade isn’t limited edition, if that Target REstyle sticker is anything to go by

Above: It’s naked! Also if you squint really hard, the bulb socket almost looks like a silencer

Above: At first I thought this meant we had the 19th numbered lamp, but then I realized it was upside-down. Still, being in the double digits at all counts for something, right?

Above: Oh, like this wouldn't be the first thing you'd do

    I wish they had those for sale. It would be awesome if you turned it on and off by pulling the trigger.

    that's the first lamp to beat a christmas story

    If you sawed off the base and... silencer... It'll be awesome!

    @mastersword369 Back in the old days when semi-auto guns first came out semi- & fully automatic were the same thing so people just called them automatic pistols.

    IMO there is only one thing that would have made this lamp better, the trigger turns it on not the bulb socket. Plus removing that would make it look more like a silencer.

    Inky seems to be looking at Mikel like he's embarassed. "Dude, seriously? You're doing that with me on your shirt? We're going to go hang out with our n**** Snoop."

    What the fuck, there's an artsy furniture store near where i sutdied music in Perth, Australia that's been selling that exact lamp for the last three years, probably longer. It's expensive aswell

    lol @ ninjadevbear I was definitely thinking the same thing.
  • TalkradarLikesAreApe - August 6, 2010 12:27 a.m.

    Immediately before I read the caption I thought, "that bulb socket could pass as a silencer in the dark" but yah I would definitely try to point it around first

    I love that last picture of Mikel "They're Pac Man ghosts, you son of a bitch!" *bang*
  • Ensoul - August 5, 2010 11:42 p.m.

    Now that's a "light gun"! ... Ahem. I think it's stylish and perfect for a gentleman's room.

    Tyler Wilde: "Mikel has ghosts on his T-shirt!"
  • mastersword369 - August 5, 2010 10:05 p.m.

    Why does he call it "Automatic?" is this lampgun edition so badass that it surpasses the mere semi-automatic aspects of the original M1911?
  • breener96 - August 5, 2010 9:30 p.m.

    If you take the light bulb out and then press the trigger, does it shoot lightning?
  • nuno004 - August 5, 2010 9:03 p.m.

    take this wise guy! silenced *bang* *bang*
  • grappler51 - August 5, 2010 8:57 p.m.
