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.

Summer is full of balls: baseballs, softballs, soccer balls, wiffle balls, beach balls. Why not Buckyballs? Buy two sets of Buckyballs and get one free! Use the code HOTBALLS through 6/26/2010 at 12 midnight ET.
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.
We know, we know, you're still pissed at us because the iCade isn't
a reality yet. We'd like to make an apologetic gesture by offering four
fine ways to protect and display your precious iPad. Ultra lightweight
and compact, the Flip Jacket is made of durable canvas. The iPad Hip
Bag is a sturdy messenger-style bag perfect for geeks on the go. The
Candyshell is a seamless hard shell case with soft rubberized lining
and a flip-back panel for use with your iPad dock or iPad keyboard
dock. Finally, the FlexStand has flexible rubber legs that hug your
iPad and give you a no-slip grip on any table, desk, or surface. Check
'em all out and let us know which one you like best!
Step right up, friends, and join the musical future! This wondrous
instrument is a synthesizer that's powered by the very air you
breathe. Take a deep breath, blow in the nozzle, and tap on those
imitation ivories. Now all you need is a dancing monkey and you'll be
earning a real income.
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!
The ultimate home or office accessory for the Shatner fan, this lamp
features a die-cast replica of the starship Enterprise with authentic
details, right down to the Bussard intake collectors. Press a button and it plays the famous prologue from The Original Series while the
Enterprise rotates and lights up. It's the most glorious lamp we've
ever encountered. We love lamp. Do you love lamp?
The world needs you! Whether your strengths lie in jumping, pumping,
or redlining light-cycles, your skills are needed to defeat the
scourges of the Arcade! That Ape and his fiery minions must be toppled
from their perches! The Master Control Program must be derezzed! And
when it comes to defeating the dreaded Pterodactyl, aim your lance
directly into the beast's mouth! If you need inspiration, we offer
these wonderful motivational posters to remind you that you fight on
the side of all that is right, good, and just!
Maybe you've considered etching your own circuitboard before, but it
just seemed to be a big PITA. But if you're looking for the ultimate
in customization, you need to bite the bullet and give etching a try.
This kit contains everything you need: two pre-coated circuit boards,
positive developer for pre-sensitized circuit boards, and one 8 oz
bottle of etch solution.
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!
We've tested many a mini speaker in our time and only few pass muster
when it comes to sound quality. That's why we're sure you'll be fully
satisfied with the full-bodied sound of the Aluminum Sound Tube MP3
Speaker. Not only do you get a great looking speaker encased in real
metal--you also get a built-in MP3 player and booming bass sound
with crisp highs. Play music directly from the internal MP3 player, or
use the Sound Tube as an external speaker for your iPhone/iPod.
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!
Have a little entomologist in the house, but you HATE BUGS? Turn their
attention to the Ollo Robotic Bug Kit, where they'll learn the basics
of robotics and build bugs that are not nearly as scary as real
spiders. It uses a system of easy-to-build plates and rivets and gets
your kid on your way to making their own bug robot in no time! The
OLLO Bug Kit has very detailed and illustrated instructions to walk
your child through building 4 different types of robotic bugs that can
trace lines, detect objects, or be controlled via wireless remote. The
modular and simple building system allows quick building of custom
robots. Your imagination is the limit!
