The next time you want your “Tea. Earl Grey. Hot.” you may want to serve it in this awesome Star Trek Captain’s Tea Set. Who said that tea parties were just for little girls? You calling Jean-Luc a little girl?
Over the years around here, we have perused ThinkGeek on the daily looking for cool stuff that geeks would want. We’ve also purchased more than a few of those geeky items for ourselves. I still have that air guitar shirt that plays music around here somewhere.
ThinkGeek was gobbled up by GameStop a while back, and the two maintain separate stores, with some ThinkGeek items at GameStop stores.
Pac-Man was the first video game I ever played in the arcade back in the day. I remember not making it very long because I was always trying to gobble up the power pellets, and didn’t do a good job evading the ghosts.
Like most children during the ’80s, I spent much of my time watching cartoons and going to the movies. One of the bigger franchises back in the day was the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I always thought they were weird, and the biggest thing I had in common with the Turtles is their love for pizza.
If you are the ninja pizza cutting sort, this is the utensil set for you.
Fallout fans know that the only real way to survive the wasteland is to find some power armor and profit. ThinkGeek has got you covered with their exclusive 1:1 scale Fallout T-51 Power Armor Nuka-Cola helmet.
A few years back we talked about the Star Trek TNG Captain Picard Facepalm bust. Picard gave Star Trek fans many things to like and perhaps the most Picardian thing he did was usher in the facepalm meme that we all find useful when someone does something so stupid that words fail us.
The first facepalm bust was painted to give it a more lifelike look.
The BBC series Doctor Who has been around for decades. The show’s producers have a cool way to keep the series going as different docs die off and regenerate. One thing that has remained pretty much the same over all these years is the TARDIS.
Candles are good for some things, like killing the stench of unwashed bodies after binging years of Game of Thrones episodes in one weekend sans shower leading up to the new season’s debut. You don’t want just any scent covering up the B.O.
Each year ThinkGeek runs some of the most plausible products in its April Fools’ Day gags. We sort of love it and sort of hate it. The cool part each year for me is trying to figure out which of the pranks proves popular enough that the company will actually produce and sell it.
I’m calling it for this Sir Mix-a-lot approved Bean Bag Onesie.
Thor’s mighty hammer is pretty damned powerful in the right hands. But it can’t fix everything. What you need is something more versatile, like this special version that packs a complete tool kit inside.
It may look like Mjolnir from the outside, but when you set it down and pop it open, it packs a 44-piece tool set inside.
DS9 was far from my favorite Star Trek show. I’m still Team Picard. But fans of Star Trek: Deep Space 9 might recall the prototype battleship that was stationed there called the Defiant. This wasn’t a big ship like the Enterprise, but a smaller warship that had cloaking tech, and the ability to smash enemies like the Borg.
Eaglemoss Collectibles has a nifty scale model of the warship that’s perfect for an Star Trek collection.
When I think of 1980s movies, one that always comes to mind – and one of my all-time favorites – is the Kurt Russell flick, Big Trouble in Little China. I nearly wore out the lone VHS copy my local video store had.
If you’re like me, and love both Star Trek and tiki drinks, today is your lucky day. That’s because we can now buy this awesome set of Geeki Tiki tumblers inspired by The Original Series.
The set of six officially-licensed 14oz.
One of the most popular board games is Settlers of Catan. If you are a fan of Catan style games, and also love Game of Thrones, get your credit cards out. The game is called Game of Thrones Catan: Brotherhood of the Watch and asks you to protect the wall and rise to the title of Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch.
It has essentially the same play mechanics as normal Catan, but with characters, locations, and themes inspired by George R.R.
Is it just me, or every time you see anything with Mario jumping up to smack a box with a coin inside, do you hear the “ding” sound the video game makes inside your head? That sound will surely be stuck in your head all the time with this official Mario desktop calendar.
The calendar has little cubes with numbers, days of the week, and months on them.
Peter Quill just couldn’t control himself and had to punch Thanos right in the face, resulting in the snap heard around the world. If you like the idea of an all-powerful gauntlet that lets you do whatever you want, try this Infinity Gauntlet Rings Bracelet on for size.
This version of the Infinity War Gauntlet consists of a chain bracelet with colorful faux gemstone rings attached by smaller chains.
