T-Shirts & Apparel Geek Toys Electronics Gadgets Computer Stuff Caffeine & Edibles What's New OMGWTFUN! Clearance

Dear crazed fanbots,

Yesterday, a bug in Twitter's system enabled you to force someone to follow you. Thousands of nerds frantically typed "accept feliciaday," "accept wilw," "accept neilhimself," "accept donttrythis," "accept conanobrien." Then Twitter turned us all to zeros. We questioned our very worth. Those of you without Twitter questioned our sanity (yet again).

But hey, that's all behind us now... including our hopes of being followed by Coco. Oh well.

Introducing our newest exclusive product, the AirVolt Wireless Charger for iPhone. Simply slide your phone into the included receiver case, place it on the power tray, and watch in amazement as your phone charges wirelessly via induction. It works just as quickly as a standard charger and automatically powers off once your phone is completely charged.

What's New @ ThinkGeek !!

Exclusive Star Wars Goodies Visit Your Galaxy

Just in time for the 30th Anniversary of "Empire Strikes Back", ThinkGeek has two exclusive Star Wars collectables that will look great next to your Tauntaun Sleeping Bag. Don the C-3PO Bespin Backpack and your friends will think you've just rescued an over-talkative droid from the smelter on Cloud City. C-3PO features light-up flickering eyes and has a zippered storage pocket in his torso... plus, if you have an R2 unit and a Wookiee handy, you can even reassemble his parts into a complete robot. Of course if you really hope to impress the Star Wars fangirls you'll need a roaring fireplace and a Wampa Throw Rug. This abominable snowman from Hoth almost ate Luke for a Jedi snack, but you'll enjoy cuddling up with him on those damp Dagobah nights. Both of these unique limited-quantity Star Wars goodies ship in late August. Get on the email list now for first availability.

Polluted Toxic Waste Glasses - What's your poison?

If your images were on you'd see Polluted Toxic Waste Glasses - What's your poison?

Whether you drink pure grain alcohol, or fresh, distilled water to replenish your precious bodily fluids, you'll need an appropriate vessel from which to drink it. You might be drinking something mixed from aqueous esthers, or squeezed from ripe-fruits, perhaps even chemically extracted from cooked potatoes (comrade). Either way, you're drinking poisons, so your drinking vessel may as well reflect the hazardous materials within. This barrel-shaped glass set looks like you're having a high-ball of radioactive waste, though you may as well be doing just that. Now, pour me a drink, Mandrake.

100% Cotton, 100% Geek - The shirts this week

We have a new Glennz design for both male and female fans of LOST. Hint: there is no cow station. Also for both genders we have a postcard-style t-shirt from Firefly that looks like it should read "Wish you were here the day it rained money." We have a shirt for Apple aficionadas in the audience and a babydoll-cut honoring two of our geek heroines: Ada Lovelace and Marie Curie. On our standard shirt, we have a very silly math joke that manages to mash two memes together and a shirt that expresses how we feel about the Space Shuttle program's retirement. And we have Bazinga in a babydoll cut. But that's not all the t-shirts this week. Keep reading so you don't miss out....

Mini Donut Factory - Delicious mini morsels just 6 minutes away!

If your images were on you'd see Mini Donut Factory - Delicious mini morsels just 6 minutes away!

Good donuts require planning, specialized equipment, and time. So when you've got a craving for tiny bits of delicious deep-fried dough, don't run down to the shop down the street, make your own! If it were possible to have hot and fresh homemade donuts within moments of the craving hitting you, wouldn't that be awesome? Well, step back, sunshine, 'cause awesome is here! This little waffle-iron style appliance makes 7 mini donuts in 6 minutes, so there's no excuse for a quick indulgence. I believe it was that dumpy yellow bald guy on TV who once opined, "Donuts: Is there anything they can't do?"

NERF Transforming Assault Blaster - Push button, shoot darts

You know those scenes in sci-fi movies where the military unit has to spring into action and they always run to a weapons locker and start a montage of soldiers slapping clips into awesome machine guns and stuff? Well, now's the time to bring that excitement to NERF weapons. This blaster has a storage mode where it can't be fired. But press the button on the carrying handle, and the stock extends, the handle snaps down, and the clip rotates into place. Then (shotgun-style), just lock and load, and you are ready to defeat any office monster.

If your images were on you'd see Geek's Essential Trade Paperbacks - 1836 pages of illustrated action!

While there are those who will say graphic novels and comic books are for people who don't read real books, we know better. We've embraced this literary genre that combines exciting writing with fantastic artwork. If you've embraced it too, you'll love these new products this week. There's The Walking Dead Compendium with over 1000 pages of classic zombie mayhem. Superheros more your speed? How about the best Batman story ever, Dark Knight Returns? Fight epic battles with the men of 300, or maybe just settle in with Dr. Manhattan and the crew from Watchmen. Your bookshelf is hungry: feed it more books!

Mindflex - Unleash the power of your mind

Don the headset, concentrate with all your might, and move the ball through the obstacle course using only the power of your mind. Are your brainwaves strong enough to put the ball through the ring, or are you a weakling? With the Freestyle mode, you can get the hang of the easier task of using your concentrating powers to raise and lower the ball. Once you've mastered that, you can try the Mental Marathon, Danger Zone, Chase The Lights, or Thoughtshot games. You can even build your own mind-bending obstacle courses using all the rings, towers, maze cages, and other pieces in the set.

xkcd-wear Here Now - Romance, Sarcasm, Math, and Language

It's no secret that we're fans of xkcd. From the sales of xkcd: volume 0, we can tell you are, too. Also, you guys have been writing in to the Bounty Program for years now telling us that we should be carrying xkcd shirts. You can stop now. No, really. We've added their most popular shirts to our line-up for one-stop-geek-shopping. Also, it kind of scares us that there are two sites dedicated to explaining xkcd. If you don't get it, move on. If you do get it, you're weird like us and you should click below for the shirts.

Star Wars AT-AT & X-Wing Models - Fit your fanboy needs

If your images were on you'd see Star Wars AT-AT & X-Wing Models - Fit your fanboy needs

Sometimes it seems like all the good Star Wars toys were only available in your childhood. How many times have you kicked yourself for not insisting your parents buy you that Death Star playset? Now you can make up for lost time with these fine AT-AT & X-Wing Models. You might think "model" and have terrible visions of half finished plastic hulks with smelly glue and messy paint. That's certainly not the case here. These models are fully painted and detailed right out of the box. No glue is required as everything snaps together neatly. Once you've finished building your AT-AT you'll find that he is quite posable with articulation on the head, all four legs and feet. The X-Wing features movable wings and a tiny Luke & R2-D2.

Mario Bros Dress Up Set - It's-a Mario! (Shhh, it's-a your kid.)

Whether your wee geek wants to dress up for Halloween, a gaming convention, or just because it's Tuesday, these Mario & Luigi costumes score high in our books. They even include a potbelly, just in case your kiddo hasn't grown their own yet. Everyone wants to be the world's most amazing plumber/princess-saving duo, but sorry adults, we only have sizes to fit toddler geeks, children, and extremely fun-sized adults. (By "extremely fun-sized" we mean under 5 feet. And yes, chopping off your legs is a very bad idea.)

Wavebox Portable Desktop Microwave Oven - Hot Pockets on the go

If your images were on you'd see Wavebox Portable Desktop Microwave Oven - Hot Pockets on the go

Roadtrips and travel-food go together like weasel-butts and coffee, but if you've got a schedule to keep, you've got to keep the pedal-to-the-metal and not stop for anything! How can you enjoy a nice hot meal without even stopping at a drive-thru? Easy--pop in your microwavable Jimmy Dean sandwich into this little blue box! Powered through your car's cigarette lighter, this little hotbox will nuke your food while you're going 90 down the turnpike. Please note: don't go 90, and make sure your friend is handling the controls of the Wavebox. Hot food on the go is good, but arriving alive is better!

Blood Bath Shower Gel - Clean, bloody fun

Norman Bates, Dexter, Elizabeth Bathory, Hannibal Lecter, and even Dracula all have one thing in common: at the end of the day, when they are feeling dirty, there's nothing they like better than taking a shower in blood. No, not real blood, silly, but this disgustingly clean shower gel. It looks like a blood bag, it smells like cherry, and it cleans like nobody's business. Great for making bathtime fun again (and for scaring the crap out of your guests). Double win.
