ShotBlade

Shot Blade Disc Launcher

2003 Hong Kong Toy Show Winner

Remember back in the day playing capture the Klingon with those Star Trek tracer guns that shot those little round 'Jet Discs'? Of course you do. ThinkGeek recently stumbled upon the 21st century take of that classic launcher. Inspired by the bullet time scenes from the Matrix, the Shot Blade was developed to create slow flying projectiles that were also accurate and consistent from launch to launch. They succeeded!

A very unique addition to your cube warfare arsenal:

Retro Ringer Techie Tee's (or RRTT for the acronym apt (AA))

Apparently everything old is new again, and after seeing way too many trends come back into style from when many of us were kids (and when some of us weren't even born yet) we decided we had to join the fun. Retro is back - from old style video games to green shag carpet, it's cool again to be old. Checkout our new batch of ringer t-shirts. We've got Disco with a leet bent, Go fork() yourself, and Keep on fsckin' to bring you back to the seventies. Also, by popular demand is our retro styled athletic ringer with just '42' on it. Hmmm, Why 42? If you have to ask, you can't know...
