Bacon-loving friends,

We're not sure if you heard, but ThinkGeek recently got a 12-page cease & desist letter. Apparently the lawyers of the National Pork Board believe that we sell meat made from geriatric unicorns fattened on candy corn and rubbed down with Guinness by nuns in Ireland. They're in a tizzy because we called it "The New White Meat." The best part was when our lawyer explained they were a month behind on an April Fool's joke.

And besides, who does more to promote the consumption of bacon than us? We should demand compensation for all the marketing we do for the magical animal known as the pig.

Limited Edition 24" Stormtrooper Super Shogun - The clone you're looking for

In the '70s, Bandai began producing a line of two foot tall robot toys. They had rolling feet, "Rocket Punch" shooting fists, and could lay the beat-down on any other toy just by their massive size. Also in the '70s, a little movie came out called "Star Wars." The time has come for these two giants to merge (like the Skeksis and urRu--or chocolate and peanut butter). The result is this super limited edition (1200 in total) 24" Stormtrooper Super Shogun figure. It's got the wheels, it's got the "Rocket Punch"--and if you don't get yours now, you'll be kicking yourself forever.

If your images were on you'd see iPhone Dock Projector - When a retina display isn't good enough

The new iPhone is beautiful. With a super high-res display and glassy finish, it's a wonderful way to watch videos on the go. Still, the screen could be a little bit bigger, don't you think? What if we could make it double, triple, quadruple--nay--QUINTUPLE in size? Slip your brand-new piece of iCandy into this little egg-shaped projector and display up to 80 inches of gorgeous full-color video onto the flat surface of your choice: floor, ceiling, wall, neighbor's forehead. Perfect for sharing the latest episode of The IT Crowd with your coworkers!

New Star Wars Reading Materials - Once upon a time...

If your images were on you'd see New Star Wars Reading Materials - Once upon a time...

Books are fun, but only when they have pictures. We jest, of course, but these Star Wars books are no joke. You'll get 5 double-sided posters when you buy Star Wars Blueprints. See inside the Death Star, the Falcon's hyperdrive, and more. Want your pictures to move? Then snag Scanimation Star Wars, where you can see saber fights, explosions, and Tauntauns trotting using a patented, self-working animation process. But what if you want a toy, too? Then pick up some Star Wars Mini Collector Vehicles. Each comes with a mini metal ship and a super-detailed magazine. Time for ludicrous speed!

They are Coming! Invaders from Space are slowly descending upon us like locusts! Upon landing, they intend to crush their enemies, see them driven before them, and hear the lamentations of the women. Wait. That's Conan. Anyway, their intent is the same! Make sure you've got your emergency kit packed, and what better bag to pack them in than in this lovely commemorative vinyl messenger? Stamped with the pixellated representations of the Enemy! When they come, here's a hint: shoot through the bunkers!
