The ThinkGeek Newsletter!

February 24, 2005

Hello everybody!

A few merchandising monkeys here at ThinkGeek just got back from the annual Toy Show up in NY in the never ending quest to ensure that *you* have something to look forward to in life. You'll be happy to know that we passed on the ear wax candy, the self-twirling spaghetti fork, and even the crab hat. You'll experience some of the goodies we discovered in upcoming newsletters. In the meantime, take a gander at our most recent crop of geeked-out gear...

LoungeLights!

LoungeLight LED Candles

Hmmm, do fire and electronics normally go together? Well, almost categorically we would have to say "no" but we think we have found an exception with these colorful LoungeLight LED Candles. A special color- morphing LED and battery unit fits inside the wax candle and provides either a color transition or single color glowing light effect. This combines nicely with the candle's real flickering flame to add some warmth, color and ambiance to your office surroundings or set a relaxed mood in your kitchen or dining room at home. The battery will provide about 100 hours of LED light and wax candle refills and additional batteries are available:

Get your glow on here...

Firewheel RBGs In Stock And Ready To Unload

Despite many requests from our customers to carry rubber band guns here at ThinkGeek in the past, we've simply never found an RBG product line that worked well enough to warrant toying with. That has changed. The Firewheel is the first RBG we've studied to fix the problems plagued by other RBGs on the market. We think you'll agree. Load up to ten rubber bands at once, and then accurately shoot them off one by one, all at once, or in small bursts. Whatever the moment dictates. Lifetime warranty and some of the cheapest ammo on the planet assures you'll always be able to respond to those lame ambushes from the lemmings in sales...

Airzooka & Megazooka Now Available In Your Cube

After a long hiatus off the ThinkGeek virtual shelves, we are proud to re-introduce the Airzooka into your greedy palms. We are also giddy as text adventurers at a grue convention to announce the entrance of Airzooka's bigger, meaner brother - The Megazooka. The mere sight of Megazooka's girth should be enough to send the enemy running with their monkey tails tucked firmly between their legs. Both the Airzooka and the Megazooka allow you to blast the folks you hate and the folks you love to hate with tight balls of air. Madly ruffle their perfect hair, TPS reports or just stun the living life out of them from up to twenty feet away. And remember you'll never run out of ammo unless the planet you're on has no atmosphere.

ScanGauge 3-in-1 Auto Computer

As a general rule, geeks like to have access to as much data and statistics as possible. We pretty much figure this applies to a geek's motor vehicle as well. So, to allow you to access extra information about your car we would like to introduce the ScanGauge 3-in-1 Auto Computer. This gadget is easy to install and provides a set of digital gauges, a comprehensive trip computer, and an engine trouble code scan tool. It plugs into the diagnostic OBD-II connector found under the dash on 1996 and newer cars and light trucks. The functions are accessed via a simple on-screen menu interface.

New TG Shirts To Amaze, Perplex & Sanctify

We've got a couple of new threads for you to throw in your hampers. Choose between three reality-warping designs. First up is our 'Black Holes Suck' shirt. We've found that it can take up to thirty seconds before many folks crack a smile at this one. Then they usually pee themselves. Next up is the 'Rogues Do It From Behind' t-shirt from Penny Arcade. Designed specifically for all fanboys and fangirls of the RPGs and MMORPGs out there. Lastly is a re-release of the 'Han Shot First' shirt we premiered a few months ago from the fine folks over at PVPOnline. Nothing could be truer. Check out the latest t-shirt trilogy from ThinkGeek right here:

Dot Matrix LCD Watch

For those of you who don't know, "dot matrix" is not a new ultra-cool domain name extension (but who knows, maybe in the future it will be...) But the numbering display on this new watch is dot matrix style and has a unusual vertical display orientation. The Dot Matrix LCD Watch has a tech-inspired styling and some great features like a stopwatch chrono function, Blue EL illumination, and a fully featured alarm. Brushed metal face and rubberized band complete the package.

New Jolt Cola Flavors & New Jolt Cola Packaging

New Jolt Cola Flavors & New Jolt Cola Packaging

The original 'stay up forever and never sleep' drink, Jolt Cola, has recently undergone some dramatic changes. But fear not as ThinkGeek is here to tell you all about them and rest assured they did not change their super-caffeinated formula. First off, they've switched from twenty ounce generic plastic bottles to 23.5 ounce giant metallic cans. But wait, there's more! These lids feature a newly developed screw top so that you can reseal your can for maximum freshness. Choose from among five different flavors: Classic Cola, Blue, Red, Cherry, & Ultra (sugarless). Available in 12-packs which should be enough to keep you awake for a fortnight:
