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

If your life had a face, we wouldn't punch it.

We're nice like that. Summer con season is winding to a close and it's time for geeks everywhere to start thinking about school. Some are putting their geeklings on the big yellow bus for the first time while others are preparing to defeat seven evil courses (or those last 7 credits).

Then there's the rest of us who are just glad our favorite lunching location isn't overrun with teenagers and the only papers we have to write are D&D campaign logs--and we love writing those!

Just like Scott Pilgrim, sometimes you need to step up your game and fight for what you want. You want As in school? Better get your slide rule and robot pencil sharpener ready for battle!

What's New @ ThinkGeek !!

Take $10 off $40+ orders - Easier than defeating Ochre Jelly

If your images were on you'd see Take $10 off $40+ orders - Easier than defeating Ochre Jelly

Fill your personal inventory with the gear you need to pummel those evil teachers until they explode into coins. Oh wait... don't pummel your teachers. That's nearly always a bad idea. Besides, we've heard they explode and form more evil teachers, much like an Ochre Jelly. Use code SKOOLGEAR for $5 off your $25+ or $10 off your $40+ order, good through 11:59pm ET 8/28/2010.

iXP3 Internet Messaging Clock - Weaving your tweets in midair

If your images were on you'd see iXP3 Internet Messaging Clock - Weaving your tweets in midair

We have clocks on wheels, clocks that fly, even clocks that read out time in octal. Until now, we've never had a clock that reads your Twitter feed. This clock uses an array of LEDs and persistence-of-vision effects to create text that seems to float in midair, but the coolness doesn't stop there--this sucker's internet-enabled! Plug in a regular old ethernet port, and you can send messages your clock from anywhere in the world, all rendered in floating phantom red LED. Now you can follow @thinkgeek's tweets and watch as they get written in magical floating letters!

Kata Panorama U Laptop Bag - Worthy of the Dark Lord himself

If your images were on you'd see Kata Panorama U Laptop Bag - Worthy of the Dark Lord himself

Vader hasn't had a vacation in over a year and his servos are tired. He needs to go to some tropical planet and rest, but he hates being without internet, so he brings his laptop with him. Does he carry it in some lame backpack? No! He demands his bag matches his ensemble. What a diva. The Kata Panorama U holds your laptop and camera supplies in padded neoprene goodness all while looking like it was Standard Empire issue. Flat black with lots of ridges, and pockets for all your gadgets. Now, if only he could remember where he kept those Death Star plans...

Samurai Sword Chopsticks - Looks sharp, but won't cut your tongue

If your images were on you'd see Samurai Sword Chopsticks - Looks sharp, but won't cut your tongue

When we first saw these, we were like, "Oh cool! Chopsticks that look like samurai swords! WANT!" Then we looked a little closer and realized that they're modeled after the weapons of actual samurai. Allow us to introduce you to the weapons of Maeda Keiji, Sanada Yukimura, and Date Masamune. Are you a fan of Japanese stuff, eating Asian food, or swords? Maybe like us, you can say "heck yes" to all three. Pick up a set of these chopsticks and make your next meal infinitely more badass.

Casio Classic Calculator Watch - Why mess with perfection?

If your images were on you'd see Casio Classic Calculator Watch - Why mess with perfection?

This style of watch has been around as long as many of us have. But that doesn't mean it's old or dated or useless. NAY! We say that it's just as useful today as it was back in 1975. Casio's Classic Calculator watch is a splash-resistant, multifunction watch with integrated calculator touchpad has flexible stopwatch functions with 1/100th second increments and split time. This watch will even display time in 12 or 24 hour modes, so you military or Euro-folks can have a familiar face. (Get it, face? Ugh, that was awful.) Most importantly, the auto calendar will work until the year 2079, when we will SURELY have our flying cars.

Cassette Tape Retro Watch - A mix tape shows you care

If your images were on you'd see Cassette Tape Retro Watch - A mix tape shows you care

As everyone of age knows, sometimes when someone has a crush on you they'll make you a mix tape to give you a clue. Crafting a mix tape was a fine art. You want to include such classics as My Cherie Amour, Kiss the Girl, Love Me Do, and I Have To Say I Love You In A Song. Most importantly, you want to avoid such titles as That's What Friends Are For, I Am The Walrus, and possibly Fat-Bottomed Girls. This totally smooth and retro watch features two movable discs on the face that look like the movement of a real cassette tape. A must for the 70s or 80s kid!

Abby Normal Soap in a Jar - Puttin' on the Ritz

If your images were on you'd see Abby Normal Soap in a Jar - Puttin' on the Ritz

When professor Frankenstein needed a brain for his creation, he wanted the brain of a genius, so he sent Igore out to the morgue. Unfortunately, Igore can't read that well, and brought back what he thought was the brain of someone named "Abby Normal." The good professor was still able to make lemonade from bad brains, and his creation became the toast of the town! Now, however, he's washed his hands of the whole endeavor, and started making brain-shaped hand soaps instead! Two to a jar, these lovely mini-brains are better than a roll in the hay!

iPad Executive Jacket - Every little detail is perfect

If your images were on you'd see iPad Executive Jacket - Every little detail is perfect

Whether you're using it at the office, out at a business meeting, in class, or out at your local Comic-Con, iPad Executive Jacket will provide refined and stylish protection for your treasured tablet. It is made of quality black synthetic leather (vegetarian-friendly!) and features a four-point mounting system to snugly hold your iPad in place. The closure strap doubles as a bookstand to hold your iPad in landscape orientation. Not only that, the ergonomic handle is lined so you can wrap it around your hand to hold your iPad securely while you're reading it bed or playing Blockhouse during boring meetings. The jacket allows easy access to all ports and buttons and the elastic tabs along the interior spine make cable management a breeze. It's the ultimate case for the iPad user and our favorite one in our catalog. Monkey-approved!

Samurai Sword Handle Umbrella - New Tanto travel size

If your images were on you'd see Samurai Sword Handle Umbrella - New Tanto travel size

Riddle time. What do the Lone Ranger and a Katana have in common? No, not a penchant for wearing cowboy hats--they both have a best friend named Tanto. We made up that awful joke just for you because we care. But seriously, sometimes you just can't take your Samurai Sword Handle Umbrella out in public. It's for those times, we deliver the new travel-sized, Tanto style. Pop it in your backpack and be ready for rain. Be ready to defeat rain in battle, that is.

Stay Puft Caffeinated Gourmet Marshmallows - Empty your heads!

If your images were on you'd see Stay Puft Caffeinated Gourmet Marshmallows - Empty your heads!

Don't think of anything. Gozer will pluck the Destructor form from your thoughts. Clear your m... crap! Way to go. You thought of the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man. And now he's going to come and--wait. He's giving us rubbery, marshmallowy boxes. They are full of delicious, gourmet, CAFFEINATED marshmallows (yeah, you read that right). And now he's smiling and leaving town. No destruction today, just sweet, sweet, marshmallowy love. Enjoy the mallows and then keep your stuff in the awesome box. Just like the summer nights at Camp Waconda.

Iron Man 2 Figures - Sidekick THIS!

If your images were on you'd see Iron Man 2 Figures - Sidekick THIS!

These Marvel Select Line exclusives are the only full-size action figures based on the designs for Iron Man 2. They feature top-quality sculpted detail and multiple points of articulation. Each figure--Iron Man or War Machine--comes with a bonus deluxe Armor Assembly Station base. Iron Man's mask can be removed, worn "tilted back," or over his face. He comes with an extra pair of hands so you can have his fists closed or open. War Machine's face sculpt is an amazing likeness to Don Cheadle, the actor who played James Rhodes. He comes with a removable Gatling gun. If you believe Iron Man should have a sidekick, get both. If you're tired of Tony Stark's attitude, maybe you should just get War Machine.

Darth Vader Arm - Build it, then grasp the Dark Side

If your images were on you'd see Darth Vader Arm - Build it, then grasp the Dark Side

Man or machine? Be a little more like your favorite Sith Lord with this robotic arm you can build from 45 snap-together parts. Learn to control the robotic arm so it can turn, extend, and even grip and pick up small objects. We do not recommend wiring it up and replacing your real arm with it, but there's not much we can do once you've purchased it. So, um, send us pics if you survive.
