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

Greetings, zombie-loving snowbots,

Now that The Walking Dead season is over, we're feeling an ache in our hearts. It might be that "special" eggnog we've been drinking nonstop, but we're pretty sure it's the lack of zombies. It just doesn't feel like the holidays without some post-apocalyptic action. After all, it shows the true nature of humanity, much like dinner at our in-laws' house.

We'll distract ourselves with happy things! Wear your rebel scum finest on December 10 in honor of Katie, a Star Wars water bottle-toting geekling, who stood up to school bullies when they said girls couldn't like Star Wars.

Monolith Action Figure with zero points of articulation!

What's New @ ThinkGeek !!

Electronic Butterfly in a Jar - Flutters like the real thing

When we were kids, we loved putting things in jars. Dead things didn't do too much, so they were boring. And live things, like butterflies, tended to turn into dead things (as they shouldn't really live in jars). But the fluttering of butterflies is one of the most calming and beautiful things on Earth, and we want it on our desk! Thanks to science, we now can: with electronic butterflies (one per jar). These butterflies respond to sound and tapping on the jar, and flitter around just like real ones. It's like putting the best part of life in a jar and enjoying it over and over.

Walking Dead Glassware - Drink up before the geeks inherit the earth

If your images were on you'd see Walking Dead Glassware - Drink up before the geeks inherit the earth

The problem with the majority of collectible glassware is that most companies just print things on the outside of the glass. This looks all fine and good for a while, but if you're using the glass frequently, one day you're going to realize that Wonder Woman no longer has a midsection or that Yoda's face is blurred like he's in the witness protection program. Etched glasses, such as these fine ale-toting types, are clearly THE WIN when it comes to collectible glassware. Because the artwork is etched directly into the glass, the wear-and-tear of normal use will not affect them like their poorly-painted brethren. Drink up now; you never know when the zombie apocalypse is going to happen.

Pizza Pi Cutter - Cut your pie with pi

Most pizzas are round, and that means they need pi when figuring out area and circumference. In fact, some folks think this is why they are sometimes called 'pizza pies.' Whatever the reason, many people who like numbers eat a lot of pizza. And why not celebrate your love of this adorable and necessary irrational number AND your love for pizza with a Pizza Pi Cutter? Two wheels of stainless steel and mathematical fury are ready to free your slice of pizza and further demonstrate how pi has circles under its control. Math and pizza--sounds like the recipe for a perfect Saturday night.

Aerogel Sample Kit - World's lowest-density solid

If your images were on you'd see Aerogel Sample Kit - World's lowest-density solid

In 1931, on a bet, two scientists began playing around with silica gel. They found a way to replace the liquid in the silica with gas--and thus created silica aerogel, the world's lowest density solid. Aerogel has tremendous applications for our future because of all its special properties: it's been used as a thermal insulator on the Mars Rover, to capture space dust on the Stardust mission, and so much more. You'll get a tiny sample, perfect for display or as a key component of a science fair project. One look, one careful touch, and you'll realize why this substance is so awesome and why it has the nickname of 'frozen smoke.'

Warcraft Cataclysm Mugs - New content, it's how they get ya

You've been off the Warcrack for a while, but then you heard about Cataclysm. And now it's all over. By 'it's' we mean 'all those things you used to do on evenings and weekends.' But everything is so different now--you have to play, right? These two mugs are handcrafted from superior quality fine-grain stoneware. They're hefty and get even heftier once you've filled them with 18 ounces of your favorite brew. The sculpted weapon handles are an awesome touch that sets these mugs above and beyond your average coffee mug. Stunning artwork by artist James Zhang makes these a must-have for any World of Warcraft fan, whether you're Alliance or Horde.

Relativity Watch - It's about that time

If your images were on you'd see Relativity Watch - It's about that time

Since it seems the younger generation has lost the ability to read analog watches, we thought this watch would be the ultimate way to mess with our younger friends. You see, the hands of this watch tell the time, but the face doesn't. The numbers are melty, much like your concept of time. In 30 seconds, the 3 becomes a 9, or the 11 becomes a 5. (You may or may not be able to convince your boss to let you out of work early.)

Harry Potter Clue - Draco, with a Sleeping Draught, in the Owlery!

We love classic games with a fun twist. Why play regular Clue when you can jazz it up with the secrets of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry? Dark magic has been performed at Hogwarts. A fellow student has vanished from the famous School of Witchcraft and Wizardry--and it is up to you to solve the mysterious disappearance. Play as Harry, Ron, Hermione, Ginny, Luna or Neville and try to discover who did it, what spell or item they used, and where the student was attacked.

Star Wars stuff - More Star Wars than you can shake a lightsaber at!

If your images were on you'd see Star Wars stuff - More Star Wars than you can shake a lightsaber at!

You need more Star Wars in your life. We know because we can sense it. With the Force, even. We're imagining this... you're sitting on the couch, watching The Empire Strikes Back on your big screen TV. Behind you are a set of three vintage metal movie posters, one for each Star Wars movie. You get a little thirsty, so you reach over to the coffee table and pick up your Empire Strikes Back mug which is full of delicious hot cocoa. After a few sips, you place it back down on a wooden coaster featuring Boba Fett. Then your iPhone rings! You almost pour your hot cocoa in your ear, because your iPhone case looks just like your mug! Silly you.

PBA, Personal Baby Assistant - Instant infant info

If your images were on you'd see PBA, Personal Baby Assistant - Instant infant info

As a parent, you need to know everything about your baby. But how do you remember all these things when you're working on a few hours of sleep a night? The PBA is your Personal Baby Assistant. PBA has a simple interface that makes tracking everything baby as easy as a few clicks of a button. Track nursing, bottles, pumping, diapers, sleep, medicine, temperature, and growth. PBA connects to your PC via the included USB cable so you can upload all your data to your computer or PBA Online and view all your data in chart, summary, or timeline form. Look at weekly charts to spot trends or get the general overview of baby's activities. But that's not all! The PBA has chime and vibration timers, a removable belt clip, and also works as a nightlight. Did we mention it can also track two babies if you won the genetic lottery? It totally can.

Chopstick Drumsticks - Entertain yourself while you wait for sushi

These chopsticks are carved to look just like drumsticks. While waiting for the fresh fish for your sushi to be trucked in directly from the ocean, you can get percussive on the table. And unlike the cheap disposable chopsticks, these are built to last through hours and hours of drumming. Just remember, they may be drumsticks, but they aren't for chewing. Sushi is tasty; splinters are not.

BioShock fans, rejoice! You told us you loved Subject Delta and Big Sister, with their beautiful sculpts with tons of tiny details. So we brought everyone else to the party! We're rolling out the red carpet for Big Daddy Bouncer Deluxe, Big Daddy Rosie Deluxe, Ladysmith Splicer, Eleanor Lamb and a Little Sister. At times, it's hard to believe they're just plastic and not rusted metal, cloth, and leather. All figures are true to the game and include individualized weapons and accessories. Just remember, Lamb is watching.

Chain Mail Gaming Dice Bag - Protect dice from piercing weapons!

Before you think that mail is only for LARPers and other cosplayers, check out these modern uses: protective clothing for meat-packers, gloves for butchers and woodcarvers, shark-proof diving outfits, and stabbing-unfriendly vests. Now this oldie-but-awesomey technology can be used for your dice bag! That's right, no longer will your dice be shielded by the flimsy material of a Crown Royal bag. When your dice are attacked by meat cleavers, whittling knives, shark teeth, or even an ice dagger, they will be protected by this fantastic bag. It feels nice and weighty and makes a satisfying metallic thunk when you toss it on the game table. We'll also note that it makes a satisfying bruise on your GM's forehead should you be unhappy with the turn of events in your campaign.

If your images were on you'd see Star Trek Stuff - Sit back, sip, and reminisce

For the Star Trek fans, we have the ultimate combination of awesome. First, a set of four glasses featuring the cast of The Original Series: Kirk, Uhura, McCoy and Spock. Fill one up with your favorite after-work beverage, kick up your feet on the couch, and grab your laptop. Why? Because you're going to want to slide in the Star Trek Comics DVD and blast to the future-past with all the Trek comics from 1967-2002. You know you want to make it so.

Hand Paper Shredder - Privacy is SRS BZNZ

I am an identity thief, and you'd be shocked how easy it is. Ten minutes of dumpster-diving is all I need to become a 25 year-old coder from New York City and walk away with a rental Maserati, a brand new laptop, and an XBox--leaving you with the bill. You're welcome. I go after the easy prey: those that leave their credit card receipts, bank statements, and even utility bills in the garbage. Just shred your stuff, and I'll move on. This handy shredder requires no power except that in your wrists. Twist away and keep your identity safe.
