Locked ON Proximity Sensing Shirt - Stay on target!

The sidewinder missile launched an era of military weapons with advanced targeting capabilities. Now ThinkGeek makes auto-targeting personal with the Locked ON T-Shirt. Buy one of these glowing shirts for yourself, and gift one to a friend or significant other. During your normal activities the radar screen on the shirt will scan constantly. But get within a few meters of your counterpart wearing the matching shirt and suddenly the radar on both of your shirts lock on. It's the perfect early warning system to defend against an imminent attack.

The Vampire Seduction Handbook - Catch yourself a vamp

If your images were on you'd see The Vampire Seduction Handbook - Catch yourself a vamp

Tired of fickle affection and fleeting romance? Well, what ya got to do is hook yourself an immortal lover (like Dracula--or the vampire dude who wrote this book). Yeah, you read that right. This book on how to seduce your very own vampire is actually written by a vampire. He's a few hundred years old, so he really knows what makes vampires tick and what you need to do to keep one by your side. Who knows, after you land the love of a vampire, you might even choose to become an immortal yourself.

Bleeding Heart Gummy Candy - Bleeds when bitten

Okay, sometimes Valentine's day is just so sappy. "I love you." "I love you more." "No, I love YOU more." Blech. Time to bring the zombie back into Valentine's Day with this tasty and gross candy. Inside each freshly made gummy heart are other little candies--each filled with liquid. So, when you eat it, it actually bleeds. And just to make sure you can be as messy as you want, we've thrown in a little vial of even more candy blood. Nothing says love better than eating someone's heart. Awwww.

Valentine's Day Box of Mini Plush Microbes - Love is infectious

If your images were on you'd see Valentine's Day Box of Mini Plush Microbes - Love is infectious

Happy Valentine's Day; time to get knocked up. Knocked up with microscopic plush, that is! This heart shaped box doesn't contain the boring chocolates you'd expect. Nope, it contains five mini plush microbes. You get a sperm cell and an egg cell for good love and a kissing disease microbe for bad love. But don't worry, you also get a penicillin plush to clear up the bad love. Also a cute amoeba just for kicks. Make it a VD-Day (s)he'll never forget!

And because we hang tight with the Great Cthulhu, we got some for you, too. It smells like ritual incense, untold sea substances, and mixed chocolates! Time for Cthulhu to get it on.

Star Trek Plush - Warning: It's never JUST a snuggle with Kirk

If your images were on you'd see Star Trek Plush - Warning: It's never JUST a snuggle with Kirk

Plush: the final frontier. With Captain James Tiberius Kirk and Mr. Spock by your side, you can explore strange new worlds, seek out new life and new civilizations and boldly go where no man has gone before. But most importantly, you can get that thing that we all crave--hugs. Even the most hardened, jaded meatsack out there will admit that sometimes, you just need a hug. See Kirk with his arms wide open? He's waiting for you, baby.

Flip Flop Solar Plant - Mini artificial plant wants to be real

In a perfect world, plants would take care of themselves. They would fetch their own water and get their own food. And always, always, remember to ask you if you wanted anything while they were up. But alas, this isn't a perfect world. So, we've done the only thing possible--found an artificial plant. The Flip Flop only needs light to survive--no batteries required. When it has enough light, its leaves will wiggle and bounce. You'll swear it was alive in an oddly 8-bit Mario style way... but alas it is not.

Back to the Future Lights & Sound Mark I Delorean - Who needs a TARDIS?

If your images were on you'd see Back to the Future Lights and Sound Mark I Delorean - Who needs a TARDIS?

When you want to play time traveler, you really have two choices. Do you want to be The Doctor and zip around time and space in a 1950s police call box or do you want to be Marty McFly and drive a super-cool DeLorean? The TARDIS sure as heck didn't have gull-wing doors or brushed stainless steel paneling! Our DeLorean is a 1/15th size replica of the one used in the Back to the Future movies, including fully-detailed moving parts, lights, and sound effects. Act out your very own time travel adventures, and please, no matter how hot she was back in the day, don't flirt with your mom.

Weird Dice Set - When D&D dice aren't weird ENOUGH!

If your images were on you'd see Weird Dice Set - When D&D dice aren't weird ENOUGH!

You tabletop gamers out there remember the time when you had to explain to your mundane friends what those "weird dice" you have are for, now you get to do it again to your D&D buddies! In one magic velvet bag is a full set of dice that would make even your Eladrin Avenger go "huh?" Included in the set are 3, 5, 7, 14, 30, and 100 sided dice! It's like a sack-full of misfits. Besides, you'll never know when you'll have to roll a d30 for damage! What? It could totally happen!

Heat Changing Arcade Mugs - Way smarter than your mug

Take a look at your current mug. Yes, it may or may not contain coffee, but that is probably its most exciting feature. The Heat Changing Arcade Mugs know if they contain hot coffee and are able to display it graphically (which obviously kicks your mug's butt as it just sits there doing nothing). Normally the Pac Boy mug displays an empty maze and the Space Intruders mug shows a blank starry sky. But add some kind of hot beverage and instantly the Pac Boy maze is filled with ghosts and energizers while the Space Intruders shows a retro invaders-style battle in action.

Gears of War Swag - THE Marcus Fenix? The one that fought at Aspho Fields?

If your images were on you'd see Gears of War Swag - THE Marcus Fenix? The one that fought at Aspho Fields?

How do we love Gears of War, let us count the ways. First off, it showed off the stellar graphics abilities of the Xbox 360. Secondly, it was fun to play whether you were all alone or connected with friends. And third and most importantly, it was the best use of a chainsaw in a video game, ever. Ever. New to ThinkGeek this week are the Marcus Fenix figure with light-up armor, a keychain bottle opener featuring the Crimson Order logo, and your very own COG Tags to wear with pride.

Disney Japanese Pocket Puzzles - Diabolical puzzles go Disney

You may be familiar with our Fiendish Japanese Pocket Puzzles. These solid metal puzzles are almost too deviously evil to inflict on you and your friends. Now we have some highly collectable Disney themed versions of pocket puzzle which are just as tantalizingly frustrating as the originals. In the Alice in Wonderland version you need to help Alice navigate the Queen's maze, and Winnie the Pooh can't seem to get himself out of Rabbit's hole. Mickey and Minnie keys need to be separated, but it's much harder than it looks.
