December 11, 2007

Fellow Humans,

We are gathered here today, nestled in a tangle of festive USB cables and in front of a warm simulated fire, resting our feet up on some plush Mandalorians and slow sipping Brawndo, the thirst mutilator. Why? Because for the past several weeks we've been running around the office like Goombas in heat to try and ensure we would have some fresh new product for you to feast upon. Mission accomplished... and pass the Brawndo please. (It's got what plants crave!)

New Caffeinated Stuff - More buzz for your buck

New Caffeinated Stuff - More buzz for your buck

The holiday eating season is here! And holiday gorging means extra drowsiness. Time to kick your butt back in gear. Choose Jolt Endurance Shots if you need a bang of caffeine in a hurry (150mg of caffeine per 2oz bottle). If your breath stinks and you need a boost, then Primer Caffeinated Breath Spray is for you (over 33mg per spray). Or if you are an idiot from the future (or from the movie "Idiocracy"), drink BRAWNDO - THE THIRST MUTILATOR (200mg per 16oz).

The ThinkGeek 8-bit Tie - Now Available in Power Red!

While we were looking damn sharp at meetings wearing the original blue ThinkGeek 8-bit tie, we just didn't have the clout needed when Mario demanded that all employees must ride Yoshis to the office. So the robotic monkeys voted, and it was determined that a new red version of the ThinkGeek classic pixilated necktie was needed. Enter the Red 8-bit Power Tie! Now you can rule over your office with an 8-bit fist!

Mushroom and Bomb Banks - Time to save your coins

Mushroom and Bomb Banks - Time to save your coins

Mario likes saving his coins, so you should too. Here are three ways to save up your loot. You can do like Mario and keep them in a mushroom - your choice of Super or 1Up 'Shroom. Or you can put them in a bomb. Just a warning - if you don't deposit every day, the Bomb Bank will "explode" in anger and spill your money all over the place. And once you've saved up a lot of coins... send them to us. We'll exchange your coins for something awesome. Promise.

Essential Airsoft Arsenal- $19.99 or $29.99 Buys lots of Firepower

We're a sucker for Airsoft guns... the plastic pellet-firing mostly-safe weapon of choice here at the ThinkGeek office. And these two new airsoft offerings have the robotic office monkeys watching their backs more than usual. Start with the huge Airsoft Assault Rifle with Laser Sight. This battery-powered full size weapon is seriously scary looking and features full-auto firing, adjustable stock and tactical sling. Or choose the Airsoft Blowback Handgun with Laser Sight. With realistic slide recoil after every shot and amazingly accurate laser sight, you'll want to keep it by your side at office meetings in case someone has their eye on the last donut.

Star Wars Lifesize Wall Clings - Real size bad-assedness

Nothing intimidates like a 7 foot tall dark-lord of the Sith. If you don't have one handy, you can get his stand-in instead. These officially licensed Star Wars vinyl wall clings are life sized and photo-realistic, and seven kinds of awesome. Choose Vader for the lawful-evil crowd. Those of you that are more chaotic-neutral may enjoy a lifesized Boba Fett. If you're more lawful-good, and you like your jedi small and green, Yoda is ready to leap, saber at the ready!

Mixtape Memory Stick - Bring back the love

The venerable mixtape is an art form that's sadly dying, not because of the failure of the genre, but because of the failure of the medium. Analog audiotapes are going the way of the dodo in favor of digital media, so why should mixtapes follow? A mixtape is a snapshot of your taste - a method of self-expression. The Mixtape Memory stick looks like a cassette tape, but houses a memory key capable of holding an hour's worth of audio. Give the gift that used to say, "I'm too cheap for a real gift, so here's some music" but now shows how retro-cool you are.

BluAlert Bracelet - Stylishly links to your cell phone

You told your friends to meet you at the club. They call you to get directions. Your phone rings, but the noise of the party drowns it out and you miss their calls. Now you're drinking alone, pathetic and sad... again. End this vicious cycle once and for all with the BlueAlert bracelet. The BluAlert bracelet buzzes on your wrist when your Bluetooth-enabled phone rings. It also doubles as a security device - buzzing when your phone is more than 5 meters away. Never miss a call, and never lose your phone again.

Star Wars Mandalorian Action Figures - Hand picked by Jango Fett

You all know about the army of clones and how they were genetically engineered from Jango Fett's DNA. But what you don't know is who trained them. Jango brought in a bunch of his Mandalorian friends to whip the clones in shape. These Mandalorians were some of the fiercest fighters known. And now you can collect them all. They each feature tons of articulation, removable helmets, and various weapons. And look - two of them are girls. Girl Mandalorians are hot.
