HALP! HALP!

We have a hostage situation here at ThinkGeek's Command Center! You see, we just acquired an awesome claw machine that is infested with Tribbles that are multiplying at an alarming rate. But that's not the bad news. JAMES T. KIRK HAS KIDNAPPED TIMMY!* He's holding him hostage amongst the ever-growing pile of Tribbles and he's threatening to blast anyone who comes near. He says to save Timmy, we must declare him as the best captain ever. What will Picard think?

Singing Gizmo Gremlins Plush - Beware damp Mogwai in Santa Suits

If your images were on you'd see Singing Gizmo Gremlins Plush - Beware damp Mogwai in Santa Suits

Gremlins has always been one of our favorite movies here at ThinkGeek. Cute little Gizmo just seemed like the perfect pet even considering his ability to spawn a slew of deadly dopplegangers from a few drops of water. Now you can take your own cuddly plush Singing Gizmo home with you. He's a little smaller than life-size and looking a bit mischievous. Shake him and he sings the soothing song of the Mogwai while slowly rocking back and forth. Even better, our new holiday Gizmo model sports a tiny Santa suit.

L4D & Team Fortress 2 Holiday cards - When you care enough to send urine

Spread holiday cheer (or jars of urine!) with your favorite characters from Team Fortress 2 and Left 4 Dead in four sets of forty different holiday cards. In the Team Fortress 2 sets we have festive scenes with Engineer, Soldier, Demoman, Heavy Weapons Guy and his sandvich, Scout, Sniper, and Spy (including the embarrassing rendezvous between Spy and Scout's mom). The Left 4 Dead cards remind us that even zombies celebrate the season, and that when a smoker is out of ribbon, he ties packages with his tongue. Neutral well-wishes on the front of each card and a blank slate inside allow you to customize (and apologize to your mother for sending her a card featuring stray body parts).

Metal Gyro USB 3-Ch R/C Helicopter - Better control... plus metal!

If your images were on you'd see Metal Gyro USB 3-Ch R/C Helicopter - Better control... plus metal!

This next generation copter features an all metal body and built-in solid state accelerometer (just like the iPhone). The Metal Gyro copter uses its accelerometer to stay locked on whatever direction it's facing. When you rotate right or left in the air it moves incredibly precisely and stops instantly. And you get the added advantage of charging the copter via USB from your computer. This means we've just upped the ante for R/C aviation. If you're looking for the latest and greatest small R/C copter look no further. This is it.

Halo Risk - Total world domination, Halo style

Halo Risk's map is bigger and better than regular Risk. All 42 territories are big enough to fit a respectably-sized army. Speaking of armies, there are 5 of them to accommodate up to 5 players: 2 Covenant armies, 2 human armies... and... oh noes! Now the parasitic Flood is in on the action, infecting everything. Complete your basic training, hit the command room to make your strategies, and start conquering the world already!

Spycam Classic Lighter Camera - Video camera stuffed into a lighter

If your images were on you'd see Spycam Classic Lighter Camera - Video camera stuffed into a lighter

The perfect gift for every geek who has wanted to be James Bond (or even Inspector Gadget). This looks like a standard lighter like you'd pick up at the corner store, but hidden inside is a tiny video camera. Push the ignition button and instead of flames to light your Vice Sticks, you start recording video--4GB worth of it. Once you've collected the evidence, it's time to pop the top, plug in the USB end, download everything to your computer and recharge it for your next mission.

Fa La La La La La La - Frickin' la

The holidays are all about merriment and cheer, but it's not like these days are different than any other. They're still filled with work, tedium, and people who suck--you're just not supposed to be sour about it. We're here to provide an outlet for those pent-up humbugs, because we can loathe any time of year. This week specifically we're expressing our dislike for inferior browsers (ie666), other people (Enough Social Interaction babydoll), indecision (Rock Paper Scissors Lizard Spock Baseball Tee), needless destruction (Fourth Law of Robotics), and Daleks (All-Over TARDIS). Well, that last one's a stretch. Go see them all for yourself.

EyeClops Night Vision v2.0 Binoculars - See in complete darkness

If your images were on you'd see EyeClops Night Vision v2.0 Binoculars - See in complete darkness

The one problem with being a ninja is that you have to wear all black. During the day it looks awesome, but at night--well, sometimes it's just hard to see the evil ninjas (also wearing black) you are trying to eliminate. Good thing we have these EyeClops Night Vision Binoculars for you. True binocular night vision! That means you'll have depth perception so you can see in total darkness (up to 50 feet!) and be sure of your movements. No special-ops ninja should be without a pair--and that means you!

Yummy Dough - Mold it, shape it, eat it

For those times when you shouldn't play with your food OR eat your modeling clay, we present Yummy Dough. It's colorful modeling dough that can be baked solid, but it's also 100% edible. And not "edible" like that baking soda flavored dough your mom used to make: "non-toxic, so you COULD eat it." Yummy Dough lives up to its name--that's to say, it's both yummy and modeling dough. Blend the colors, make your creations, and then NOM NOM NOM. All gone! (Easy clean-up, moms and dads!)

Street Fighter Action Keychains - Hadouken! Shoryuken!

If your images were on you'd see Street Fighter Action Keychains -  Hadouken! Shoryuken!

Carry the king of fighting games in your pocket with the Street Fighter Action Keychains. These delightful Japanese imported mini joysticks perfectly replicate the Street Fighter controls from the arcade. That might be enough to keep us entertained, but amazingly these keychains also re-create the special attack sounds of each character. Move the joystick and hit the buttons for your favorite special attack and you're rewarded with the sound for that move. Practice up on your SF skillz and soon you'll be pulling off your attacks with abandon!

Darth Vader Japanese Desk Clock - Dark Lord tells time

These days Darth Vader really gets around... he's on mugs, back-packs, toothbrushes, lollipops, towels, throw rugs... and now finally as a stylish desk clock which happens to be imported from Japan. Try checking out how many places you can find Luke Skywalker. Not so many, eh? It just goes to show you that giving into hate and aggression and turning to the dark side is so much easier than taking the calm high road of the light side of the force. Face it, folks just love the dark side and Darth Vader. Stick that up your Dagobah system.

Star Trek Cologne and Perfume - Live long and smell good

If your images were on you'd see Star Trek Cologne and Perfume - Live long and smell good

In space, no one can hear you scream, but they can smell your stink. When confined to the tight space of a starship (compared to being planetside), sometimes your BO can seem like a lifeform of its own. Not to worry: Captain Kirk is here to save the day with "Tiberius," a scent that will rouse the calm, seductive leader inside you. Or, if you prefer perfume, unleash your Vulcan lust with "Pon Farr." Both are strong, sensual, and (dare we say it) out of this world. Star Trek never smelled sweeter.

R2-D2 Trashcan - Smaller version, same R2

We hated trash until we saw this amazing R2-D2 Trashcan and learned to love garbage. This stylish trash receptacle is imported from Japan and is an incredibly detailed replica of R2-D2. Step on R2's center "foot" and his dome swings wide to collect your expired TPS reports and leftover wookie dung. Now we're offering a new, smaller desktop version of this droid based trashcan. Use it to discard old Death Star plans or dispense candy... either way you'll impress your co-workers.

Bacteria Assassin Ninja Toothbrush Sanitizer - Suiton-no-jutsu assassinates bacteria

If your images were on you'd see Bacteria Assassin Ninja Toothbrush Sanitizer - Suiton-no-jutsu assassinates bacteria

Hopefully, you brush your teeth twice a day or more. Unfortunately, you use the same toothbrush you used yesterday. When not in use, it sits and festers--a fertile garden for fecal coliform. If you don't know what that is, Google it. We'll wait. Those microscopic nasties are seriously gross, and need to be assassinated. Kill them all with ultra-violet shurikens and katanas with this cute little bathroom ninja. Place your toothbrush in this ninja's care, and using secret shinobi skills, it kills everything in sight. For once, this is a good thing!

Classic Hasbro Star Wars Blasters - Retro Hasbro toys back from the dead

We're not sure if you noticed that the latest line of Star Wars Blasters from Hasbro are all multi-colored kid friendly replicas that look ready to fire happy rainbows. Hey, we love kids, but sometimes you need a more realistic looking weapon, especially when you're battling for the future of the galaxy. These ClassicHasbro Star Wars Blasters are brand new toys that have been kicking around in a warehouse for years... and guess what? They're black and beautiful (except for the red tip), readyfor your enjoyment.

Optical Science Kit - 24 experiments in light, color, and perception

If your images were on you'd see Optical Science Kit - 24 experiments in light, color, and perception

Said the awesome dad to the little geek, "Do you see what I see? Through the pinhole glasses, little geek. Do you see what I see? It's clear, it's clear... clearer than I've ever seen..." With that, the little geek interrupted, "Dad, I'm not myopic yet. Gimme back my pinhole glasses and let me play with my Optical Science Kit in peace." A great holiday gift for geeklings interested in science, but an even better one for budding artists! Kit contains materials for 24 experiments with color, light, and visual perception to keep your geekling busy and learning for hours and hours.

Donkey Kong Jenga - Rescue Pauline before the tower topples

This is a peanut butter cup, the perfect marriage between two totally awesome things: Jenga and Donkey Kong. Build your tower, put Donkey Kong on the top with the lovely Pauline, spin the spinner, start removing blocks and moving Mario up the tower, one row at a time. Race your friends to the top, but be careful--one wrong move could send everyone falling to their doom, including the girl of your dreams.
