We've all been there. You've managed to get every element of your Negan costume absolutely perfect— except for Lucille. The missing but crucial element to your entire look. The sports store is all out of baseball bats, and your little brother didn't take too kindly to you appropriating his. You've cut your hands up on barbed wire, and now you're all out of options. How are you going to instil fear in your fellow survivors without the use of your trusty wooden sidekick?

Luckily, McFarlane Toys have you covered. They've just released a replica of Negan's bat from , and it's pretty awesome.

So Many Uses!

The best part about this Lucille replica is its versatility. Don't believe me? Take a look at the many different uses for your Lucille doppelgänger:

1. Cosplay

There's no shame in being disastrous at DIY. Cosplay is a lot of work, and sometimes you just don't have the time to spend hours crafting every tiny detail of your costume, let alone the money to cover materials. Sometimes it's okay to just buy stuff.

Luckily Negan's got a signature look that's fairly easy to emulate. All that's missing is Glenn and Abraham! Too soon?

2. Intimidation

Siblings won't stop bullying you? Kids refusing to do the dishes? Neighbor leaving passive-aggressive notes in your letterbox about that tree that's growing over their side of the fence? Time to bust out Lucille! Her menacing appearance will quickly resolve any dispute you're having and assert you as top dog of the pack. Hey, it's worked pretty well for Negan so far!

In all seriousness— you probably (definitely) shouldn't do this.

3. A Different Kind Of Roleplay

Apparently not everyone is a member of Team Glenn. Negan's antics have had a rather unexpected impact on some of Jeffrey Dean Morgan's fans, who find the smiling killer to be completely irresistible.

Now there's no need to hide those suspicious packages from the sex shop: You can buy your kinky props directly from nerdy retailers!

4. Expand Your Collection

Why put Lucille to practical use when you could keep her in her original blood-splattered packaging and allow her to accumulate that sweet, sweet value? Chuck that baby up on a shelf and appreciate her beauty through the box's window panel like a real collector— no touching allowed!

5. Companionship

Negan's oddly intimate relationship with his inanimate wooden bat may be a little bizarre, but it certainly seems to bring him joy. Why waste your time on real humans when you could instead take joy in the companionship of a weapon? You can put your Negan charm skills to test as you wine and dine her, take her out on fun dates and even get frightened teenagers to serenade her with classic songs. Don't listen to the haters— they just don't understand your love!
