Hot Topic Buys ThinkGeek

Timmy the ThinkGeek Monkey isn’t sad. Not one bit. He’s just trying to fit in with his new friends! They have got, shall we say, a darker taste in fashion. They shared his love of Star Wars, Doctor Who and Minecraft, so why not reciprocate? Oh, and $US122 million in cash didn’t hurt either.


Hunt Hydra At Your High School With A Captain America Shield Backpack

Since both vibranium and adamantium only exist in the comic book world, ThinkGeek had to settle on lightweight plastic to make its new Captain America Shield backpack. So it won’t stop bullets or blows from mythical hammers, but it will be comfortable to carry when crammed full of textbooks and your laptop.


Learn About The Brain While Destroying Yours With These Drink Coasters

Briefly: The jury’s still out on whether or not you’re actually killing individual brain cells with every sip of booze, but overindulgence can certainly have a harmful effect on your ability to think straight. So maybe if you manage to make drinking educational, like with a $US20 set of 10 glass coasters featuring slices of a human brain, you can cancel out the negative effects of booze? Seems like pretty sound logic to us. [ThinkGeek]


Star Wars Fans Are Going To Absolutely Love These New Collectibles

Today in Anaheim, California, Star Wars Celebration 2015 kicks off in one of the best years to ever be a Star Wars fan. Not only does Star Wars: The Force Awakens hit theatres in December bringing with it new characters and the original cast, but ThinkGeek has just revealed a huge collection of Star Wars-themed merchandise that’s sure to leave you with a credit card bill twelve parsecs long.


A Game Boy Laundry Bag Is A Great Reason To Pick Up Your Clothes

For a lot of us the original Game Boy was our childhood salvation from long car rides and other boring ordeals. And thanks to ThinkGeek, this Game Boy-inspired laundry bag might also be our salvation from bedroom floors covered in piles of smelly dirty laundry.


We Hope These Great April Fools Prank Products Become Real

The worst day of the year is over and done with once again, but ThinkGeek made it slightly more bearable with a new batch of fictional products that the company might one day actually produce and sell. Some of them are a long shot, but that won’t stop us from dreaming.


Wonderful USS Enterprise Sushi Set Includes Warp Trail Chopsticks

If you’re in the business of designing and selling novelty chopstick sets, you might as well pack up and close down shop now, because no one will ever be able to top this USS Enterprise set that ThinkGeek has created. The BPA-free plastic chopsticks look like glowing blue warp trails coming out of its engines, and the ship’s saucer section opens up to reveal a soy sauce dish.


ThinkGeek's Made Its Flying USS Enterprise Frisbee Prank A Real Toy

ThinkGeek’s annual crop of April Fools’ Day prank products are not only great because the company puts so much time and effort into making them see as real as possible, but also because they often end up as products you can actually buy. The latest to go from prank to purchasable is that USS Enterprise flying disc from last April that actually flies.


Giant 3D Tetris Cushions Are The Perfect Fort-Building Tool

If you stop and think about it, Tetris is less a puzzle game, and more a simulator that has players building virtual forts using randomly-shaped couch cushions. Except that in real life they don’t disappear when you’ve completed a layer, nor do these giant Tetris cushions that finally fulfil the game’s true living room couch fort destiny.


Wipe Your Feet On This SNES Controller Doormat

It’s arguably one of the most comfortable game controllers ever designed, and while this 16-Bit Game Controller Doormat isn’t officially licensed by Nintendo, there’s no denying it’s a wonderful homage to the SNES.
