BOO(lean) Fiends,

All Hallows' Eve is fast approaching and as the good zombie monkeys we are, we're preparing for a scary good time. Want to join in the fun? Check out our blog for details on how you can submit a geeky pumpkin template for our pumpkin template contest. Also be sure to tune in this Friday at 4pm Eastern Time for our latest live broadcast, including a costume contest, on Justin.TV! And in case you thought all we did around here was dabble in cosplay and gourd assault, don't forget we've also found a metric ton of awesomeness for you to peruse. So run (or lurch if you prefer your Zombies in original George Romero style) to the following goodies before the trick's on you...

What's New @ ThinkGeek !!

Share the ROCK! Buy One Guitar Shirt, Save $10 One Drum Kit Shirt!

If your images were on you'd see Share the ROCK! Buy One Guitar Shirt, Save $10 One Drum Kit Shirt!

After a code review session here at ThinkGeek HQ, two monkeys jumped up and shouted, "Scrum This!" The first monkey wore a shiny, new Electronic Guitar Shirt while the second sported the Electronic Drum Kit Shirt. Without a missing a beat, they proceeded to jam. After we picked our jaws up off of the floor, we realized we really couldn't keep this awesomeness to ourselves. So, for a limited time, when you buy one Electronic Guitar Shirt you'll receive $10 off an Electronic Drum Kit shirt purchased at the same time. While rock and roll is forever, this Rock God Discount ends at midnight on 10/31/2009. How do you invoke the power of the Rock God Discount? Add both the Guitar Shirt and the Drum Kit Shirt to your cart and and use the code ROCKGOD at checkout.

ThinkGeek Kawaii Plush Sushi - Too cute to eat

When hungry Japanese teddy bears have rumbly tummies their dining options are limited. They could snack on stuffed Hello Kitties or furry Domo Kuns, but that doesn't make a meal. We've offered plush zombies, but the teddy bears rejected these because the undead give them indigestion. Then we hit on the perfect food for stuffed bears... Plush Sushi! The cuddly texture and cute faces of these oversized sushi have our teddy bears salivating with anticipation. Choose from classic shrimp, tasty tuna, rosy salmon roe, or palate cleansing wasabi and ginger.

Molecular Gastronomy Kit - Get started with food science

If your images were on you'd see Molecular Gastronomy Kit - Get started with food science

What makes good food so delicious? Is there alchemy in agar-agar? Is there sorcery in sodium alginate? Conjury in carrageenan? It's actually science! You don't need alliteration in your Le Creuset to make some amazing food, but if you had an understanding of acids and bases, thickeners and foaming agents, you can take your culinary science to the next level. Don't know where to start? We've got you covered! Our Molecular Cuisine starter kit has everything you need to get started - chemicals, tubes, pipettes, a syringe, a spoon and a collection of recipes. Mmmmmm, science. *drools*

Lightsaber Laser Pointers - Make forceful presentations

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away some bad ass dudes fought with laser swords called Lightsabers. The Lightsaber Laser Pointers are roughly one third scale versions of the Lightsaber hilts carried by the Sith lords Darth Maul and Darth Vader. Not only can you show off your Jedi prowess by brandishing these slick hilts, you can also get practical use out of them as standard red laser pointers. Laser pointers are just as useful as the force: control your pets, make people look at things you're pointing at, and more. The uses are endless. And, just like a Lightsaber, it can cut through enemies like butter, as long as your enemies are made of invisible matter-free butter.

Caffeinated "Magic" Brownie Mix - DIY chocolaty caffeine

If your images were on you'd see Caffeinated

Sometimes the best things in life come to those who help themselves; sometimes the best things come to those who make things themselves. But always the bestest of the best are the things you make yourself that you can then help yourself to. We're talking BROWNIES! And why make boring brownies when you get use this mix to make extra special, crazy, extra chocolaty, highly *caffeinated* brownies? There are no reasons. These brownies get their caffeine from smashed coffee beans, coffee, guarana, and straight caffeine. Trust us, you eat one of these brownies and you'll be flying high. Hence the "magic" in their name. And if for any reason they give you the munchies, just eat another brownie! You may never sleep again.

Mini HoverDrone - Smallest flying R/C device ever

When highly evolved nano-aliens descend upon our planet to mine our plethora of carbon monoxide gasses, they'll surely be piloting something like this Mini HoverDrone. This is by far the smallest flying R/C device we've ever seen and it's damn impressive in the air. With a diameter not much larger than a silver dollar and a single propeller on the bottom, the HoverDrone somehow manages to hover in the air as it spins and flashes its multi-color LEDs. The simple slider control allows only up-and down movement... but this makes it so easy to fly that anyone can instantly control it.

Star Trek 3D Lenticular Poster - The Enterprise has hidden depth

If your images were on you'd see Star Trek 3D Lenticular Poster - The Enterprise has hidden depth

We all love Star Trek. You do too, right? Watching Kirk and Spock or Picard and Data on the small screen, or occasionally on the big screen, was almost always a wonderful experience. (Let's just all collectively agree ST:V never happened, mkay?) The one limitation to Trek was that it always lacked depth--two boring old dimensions is all we get. Not anymore! Now, the Great Bird of the Galaxy has delivered unto us these three beautiful posters of Three Enterprises, rendered using gorgeous lenticular 3d. No glasses required! Click here to see red/blue 3d versions so you can get an idea how beautiful these posters are!

Rovio - Wi-fi enabled, mobile roaming webcam robot ftw!

Everyone loves remote control robots. Wouldn't it be mega nifty if you had your own robot that you could control from anywhere on the Internet? Yes it would! Enter the Rovio. This robot is operated via any web-enabled device (PS3, iPhone, PDA, PC, Mac, etc.) You can connect to it from anywhere in the world as the Rovio has access to wi-fi. The Rovio will stream video and audio over the internet to your client using its built in webcam and microphone. With a large field of view and remote roaming capabilities, the possibilities are almost endless. Check-up on your pets while at work. Sneak up on your roommate. Check-in on the baby. Running out of battery? Hit a button remotely and Rovio will robo back into its charger just like a good Rovio should...

GorillaTorch LED Light - A helpful hybrid

If your images were on you'd see GorillaTorch LED Light - A helpful hybrid

Science is starting to dream up and create some odd creature combinations. These genetic hybrids are both fascinating and frightening at the same time. We don't recall seeing a gorilla with magnetic feet yet, so for now we'll just have to settle for the GorillaTorch. This bright LED flashlight can grab onto just about anything with its three wrappable, flexible legs. In situations where it can't grab on, it can stand using the built-in magnetic feet. Now, this is a hybrid creature we can feel comfortable having around the house.

Vers Wood iPhone Case - Treat your iPhone right

There may be other amazing mobile phones, but let's face it, your iPhone is the international supermodel of smartphones... and last time we had a chat it demanded only the very best. So chuck that crappy silicone case you bought for $5 from a mall kiosk and treat your iPhone right with luxurious natural wood. The Vers Wood iPhone Case is hand crafted from select US hardwoods and bamboo, and has a soft felt interior your iPhone will love. The oval window on the front perfectly displays the time from your iPhone screen and makes it look uber stylish to boot!

Baconnaise - What Zeus would eat if he were mortal

If your images were on you'd see Baconnaise - What Zeus would eat if he were mortal

Throughout history there have been many legendary couplings - peanut butter & chocolate, oatmeal & raisins, Antony & Cleopatra. Each of these pairings is magnificent in their own right. None of these can stand up to the truly glorious union between bacon and mayonnaise. Baconnaise, as this mana from the heavens is called, goes well on everything from sandwiches to french fries. You could even combine it with one of the other legendary pairings! Well, maybe not Tony and Cleo. BUT! Baconnaise mixed with chocolate and peanut butter has to be good... right?

Sense & Sensibility & Sea Monsters / How To Take Over Teh Wurld - Two awesome sequels

If there's one thing movies have taught us, it's when you have a success you must have at least one sequel. But did you know that same theory also applies to books? Everyone from Shakespeare to Asimov has written sequels (and then some) to some of their best works. Well, now so has Professor Happycat. That's right, now you can get "How to Take Over Teh Wurld" the hilarious follow up to "I Can Has Cheezburger." And that's not all: Jane Austen's in the mix. Following the success of "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" (a wonderful book she co-authored), she now co-brings us "Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters." Ok, so that's not really a sequel, but it's close enough.

LEGO Darth Vader's TIE Fighter - Ride pimped by Sith

If your images were on you'd see LEGO Darth Vader's TIE Fighter - Ride pimped by Sith

They say this LEGO Vader is a bad mother- SHUT YOUR MOUTH! I'm talking about Vader. THEN WE CAN DIG IT! That's right, LEGO Darth Vader is in town and nothing will ever be the same. Because he's not only brought his trusty lightsaber, but he's also got his LEGO TIE Fighter. Oh yeah. More advanced that the regular boring TIE Fighter, Vader's ship is the best LEGO TIE fighter you could ever build. Snap together about 250 pieces, and this bad boy is ready for action. It even has flick-firing missiles to take down any rebel ships heading for poorly-planned exhaust ports. Just don't recreate the ending of Star Wars: A New Hope - all that spinning makes Vader puke in his helmet.

Wireless USB Digital Microscope

The amazing microscope. It gives us a glimpse into a tiny world that we're generally unfamiliar with--an invisible world. We can suddenly see the structure and hidden components of everyday objects. The Wireless USB Digital Microscope lets you explore and capture digital images without any interference from wires hanging from the top of the microscope. Great for examining electronics, small parts, quality control, or just learning. Tiny is the new big!
