If you’re a Walking Dead fan like I am, you’ve probably spent the past two months either a) upset that Rick’s son Carl was bitten by a walker or b) in denial that Carl will actually die. But whether you’re #teamNegan or rooting for the good guys from the Hilltop, the Kingdom, and Alexandria, we’re all excited to see our favorite characters face off in the midseason premiere airing this Sunday, February 25th.
If you’re a regular fan, you should probably check-out the latest trailer and let us know what you think. But if you’re a TWD superfan, trailers and sneak peeks aren’t enough; what you need is some serious swag inspired by the AMC hit.
So, in honor of making it half way through the 8th season, I introduce you to eight Walking Dead products you’ll be dying to snag. Some of which may really come in handy if you find yourself living through the next zombie apocalypse.
1. Survival 101: Survival Kit
Not prepared to survive a real-life zombie outbreak? You aren’t alone. A student study presented by the University of Leicester found that the odds wouldn’t look so good for most of us. This Walking Dead Survival Kit can help you feel better equipped.
It has everything you need to stay alive for 72 hours. From a 30-piece first aid kit to 2,400-calorie food rations and emergency water, the official survival kit by AMC could surely come in handy. Its contents stay fresh for five years and are housed in a military-grade messenger bag.
2. Eat or be Eaten: Walking Dead Cookbook and Survival Guide
It’s pretty safe to assume that surviving a zombie outbreak is no picnic. Not only do you have to worry about being eaten by walkers, or roamers, or biters, or infected (whichever you choose to call them), you also have to find food. Maybe you’ll get lucky and find an old can of beans or peaches, but eventually you’ll have to build a fire, boil some water, and hunt.
This cookbook not only assists you with coming up with a game plan, but it also offers recipes to help you maintain physical strength through proper nutrition. Written by a professional chef and based on the AMC series, this cookbook is packed with unique recipes inspired by The Walking Dead. Now, you can finally try Carol‘s cookies.
3. The Mug that Turns: Morphing Mug
This zombie mug literally morphs when heated. The mug is solid black when it’s cold, but just add your favorite hot beverage and witness a gruesome image come to life in vibrant color. TWD fans will love it.
4. Take it Like a Champ: Lucille Bat
This bat is seriously the coolest and cruelest piece of Walking Dead merch you can own. We were all shaking in our boots when we first encountered Negan and Lucille in Season 6. Now that some time has passed, Lucille has become a series staple and has witnessed her fair share of bloodshed.
Now, she can be yours (if you’re into that sorta thing). This highly detailed, life-size replica is complete with markings identical to the original and has a barbed wire wrapped barrel end. It also features bloody fingerprints and a blood-spattered paint finish.
Need I say more? Show off your fandom with these socks and let those around you know you mean business. They’re one size fits most and are non-slip so you can also wear them out to do yoga and pilates.
6. Infinite Love: Walking Dead Bracelet
If you’ve made it this far, then you must love the show. It was, after all, the most-watched cable TV series last year. So why not wear your love on your wrist with this TWC bracelet set. It comes in a variety of colors: aqua, fuchsia, silver, and light blue.
7. Walking Dead Monopoly
Live to see another day in AMC’s The Walking Dead Monopoly, as you purchase, defend, and safeguard iconic locations from the series. It comes with six collectible tokens: Michonne’s katana, Negan’s bat, Rick’s hat, Daryl’s crossbow, a zombie head, and a revolver.
Guard towers and custom fences replace the houses and hotels of classic Monopoly. You’ll have a blast.
8. FUNKO POPS
These highly stylized collectibles stand at about 3 ¾ inches tall and make a perfect addition to any Deadhead’s collection of merch. Amazon has dozens of series favorites like living Sasha, walker Sasha, Ezekiel, Negan, Father Gabriel, and so many more. You’ll really got a kick out of Dwight‘s vinyl figure.
