Happy Lupercalia!

Not everyone gets to celebrate Valentine's Day, so today we'd like to wish you a happy Lupercalia, an ancient Roman holiday you can celebrate regardless of relationship status. Pregnant ladies and those hoping to become so, don't forget to go stand in the streets so you can be smacked with goat thongs (thongs made from goats, not thongs worn by goats, but we're not sure it matters). And with that, we're off for the weekend to watch Jon Snow vs. the volcano.

Hill Giant Fist of Drinking - PUNY MORTALS!

If your images were on you'd see Hill Giant Fist of Drinking - PUNY MORTALS!

This Hill Giant Fist of Drinking is made to keep a tasty beverage can cold while causing supersized laughs. It's perfect if you play a table-top game where you ARE a giant. Stick a Yahtzee-style cup in it, drop the dice in and roll using it. It keeps you in character and helps remind everybody else you're a freakin' giant. Or use it in a campaign where you're the only non-halfling or dwarf to signify how much bigger than everybody else you are. ("They're taking the Hobbits to Isengard...") Or spray-paint it green and have a single arm that's Hulked out. And drinking. Like ya do. The possibilities are endless!

Alien Reaction Figures - In blister packaging no one can hear you scream

If your images were on you'd see Alien Reaction Figures - In blister packaging no one can hear you scream

Remember the classic Kenner action figures from the 70s and 80s? These Alien figures feel just like those, hexagonal foot peg holes and all, probably because they're Kenner's prototypes. Choose from The Alien ("Big Chap") with removable transparent dome, extendable jaws, and glow-in-the-dark head; Ripley with flame thrower; Ash with motion detector; Dallas with flame thrower (because one can never have too many flame throwers); or Kane in Nostromo Spacesuit with removable helmet and transparent visor. Five points of articulation each. Individually packaged on retro-styled black blister cards.

Sentinels of the Multiverse Card Game - Battle intense evil.

If your images were on you'd see Sentinels of the Multiverse Card Game - Battle intense evil.

There is an evil out there so great, it requires a team of heroes to defeat. This is what you face with Sentinels of the Multiverse, a cooperative, fixed-deck card game with a comic book flavor. Play as one of ten heroes working together with your teammates to defeat one of four villains. The battle takes place in one of four dynamic environments to both help and hinder your noble undertakings. Does your team have what it takes to conquer your foe? The answers are in the cards (and your ability to play them properly). Oh, and best of all: the instruction manual looks like a comic book. Excelsior!

Portable Water Bottle Carbonator - Just add water

If your images were on you'd see Portable Water Bottle Carbonator - Just add water

Even the most stalwart nature lovers can't always leave their modern pleasures at home, and now with the Portable Water Bottle Carbonator there is one less modern amenity you have to do without while you are out in nature: carbonation! This handy water bottle takes any water source and transforms it into a fizzy treat. (You can use it as a regular water bottle, too.) We've said a lot about water, but we're not talking just water. Add any beverage concentrate, and you'll be drinking its fizzy goodness in less than 3 minutes. There's fruit juice concentrate on the market, soda concentrate, beer concentrate.... Best camping trip ever.

Predator 1/4 Scale Dutch Deluxe Figure - Get to da choppa!

If your images were on you'd see Predator 1/4 Scale Dutch Deluxe Figure - Get to da choppa!

It's funny to us that the copy on the back of collectible figure boxes like these is written as if the person reading it knows nothing about the movie. Okay, so maybe there are some grandmothers in the aisles of the big box stores who know that little Timmy likes this "Predator" thing, but reading the plot of the original Predator movie probably isn't going to win granny over. That's why we like you guys. We don't have to summarize the plot for you. You just want to know the details. Quarter-scale Dutch Schaefer stands 18" tall and has over 20 points of articulation. Comes with an M-16 with grenade launcher, pistol, and knife.

Doctor Who: Remote Control: Flying TARDIS - You provide the *vworp vworp*

If your images were on you'd see Doctor Who: Remote Control: Flying TARDIS - You provide the *vworp vworp*

This 3" tall TARDIS is ready to navigate through your home or office. You'll have to provide the sound effects. With an IR controller, this TARDIS can manage vertical takeoffs and landings. Wouldn't it be adorable to float it over friends cubes when they're having a bad day? "The Doctor just wanted to drop by and cheer you up." 30 minutes of charge (via the IR controller) give you around 6 minutes of continuous play time. Note: Although the controls for space are clearly marked ("adjust left," "adjust right," etc.), we haven't figured out where the time controls are or how they work.

HexBright FLEX - 500 Lumen Open Source Flashlight - I attack the darkness!

If your images were on you'd see HexBright FLEX - 500 Lumen Open Source Flashlight - I attack the darkness!

The HexBright FLEX comes preprogrammed to provide low (50 lumens), medium (175 lumens), or high (500 lumens) output of light or even blink on button press. But it has an Arduino-compatible microcontroller that's open source, so you can customize it to fit your needs. Maybe you're clumsy and you want it to glow if it detects a fall so you can find it in the dark. Or maybe you want to set it to flash a short message in Morse code. Or maybe you want to set it to wait a beat after the button press so you can convince a friend some poor sucker to look into it before it comes on blazing 500 lumens. Not that we're suggesting that. Nope. Not even a little.

Star Trek Floating Enterprise Pen - To boldly write.

If your images were on you'd see Star Trek Floating Enterprise Pen - To boldly write.

In the olden days, when Star Trek was just beginning, the scripts were written with things called "typewriters." And sometimes, the initial drafts were written with stick-like, non-functioning styli called "pens." Time to relive that golden age (and your love of Trek) with these Floating Enterprise Pens. Each one looks like a nacelle of the original series Enterprise, but with a clear section. No, the clear part doesn't show dilithium reactions or anything like that. But it does have a tiny Enterprise that flows back and forth. And that little Enterprise is ready to go boldly - because when one writes with pens, one doesn't split infinitives.

Bioshock Infinite Prop Replica Sky-Hook - Ride the rails of the sky

If your images were on you'd see Bioshock Infinite Prop Replica Sky-Hook - Ride the rails of the sky

Commuting is complicated, especially public transportation in large cities. What you need is a good, quality R.J. Pickwick Manufacturing Sky-Hook, your trusty companion for both personal travel and self-defense. Does it work? If you have floating cities and a full sky-line system set up, yes. Otherwise, it's a really lovely prop replica. The trigger-powered motor makes it easy to activate the Sky-Hook's three rotating, bladed scoops, and it is covered with in-game details from the detailed engravings down to the screws. Note: ThinkGeek does not condone use of this device for decapitation.
