Our Offices, Let Us Show You Them: Ty's Lair

Ty with Timmy, plotting.

Evil Mastermind.

It's time for another episode of ThinkGeek Lairs!

We've already walked you through Carrie's office and Christian's office. This time, we're taking you into the office of our GeekLabs mastermind, Ty. He's the voice of My First Bacon, the bringer of gadgets and gizmos, the ambassador of all things geeky...and the collector of tons of neat stuff that he leaves just laying around his office for anyone to take photographs of.

Please. Follow us. We promise that no harm will come to your psyche.

Lightsaber Knight

As is only appropriate for a mastermind's lair, there is a guardian by the door to protect the top-secret contents within. With a lightsaber. (He's also about two feet tall. Your knees will feel his wrath.)

Millenium Falcon

The fact that the Millenium Falcon is chasing a Tie Fighter just below the ceiling should surprise no one.

Giant Sackboy

Giant Sackboy. Leather couch. A great place to kick back and ponder world domination.

Mazinger Z

He even has Mazinger Z to do his bidding!

Airsoft. I swear.

He assures us that this airsoft weapon will only be aimed at paper targets. We are still wary.

Airsoft taget: Destroyed

After all, look what has become of his target! Please be aware that this target is taped to a cardboard box and that the airsoft pellets have exited the back side of the box and tend to fall behind the book case.

Ty's manga!

A closer look at his books, because books are important. Ooh, Battle Angel Alita!

Star Wars Electronic Battle Command

Further down on the bookshelf, we spotted this little gem. Urge to press buttons...rising.

Mario and Mickey are armed.

Mario is armed. So is Mickey (check out the lightsaber hilt in his hand!). We suspect that Ty may be attempting to create a tiny, vinyl army.

Kaneda and Tetsuo from Akira

In the corner, Ty has a curio case full of wonders. The top shelf is home to Kaneda and Tetsuo.

Indiana Jones made adorable

On the bottom shelf of the curio cabinet, a glimpse of the soft side of Ty. Adorably chibi Indiana Jones figures. Awww!

Those are all of the pictures that we could snap while Ty was away from his lair. There are more things that we could not capture on film. Half constructed robotic arms. Abandoned droids leaning against walls. Piles of helicopters and mecha. Perhaps next time we will manage to snap photos of these and escape with our lives. However for now, this will have to do.

P.S. Let us know if there are any other bits of ThinkGeek HQ that you'd like to see photographed! We've got more offices lined up, but if you REALLY want to see the interior of our fridges, we can accommodate you. Just don't ask to see the bathrooms. Seriously. They're just bathrooms.

meaningless icon! Well, I would never have considered asking to see the bathrooms, but now that you mention it...

meaningless icon! @Nefenjo You REALLY want to see the toilets? We can take pics, but, um...

meaningless icon! I don't know, bathrooms can be pretty interesting! I've heard of ones that have full lounges in them. Heh, one of the bathrooms in my department building has a cot in it! (I've been informed that it's a "sick bed." I didn't want any further clarification.)

meaningless icon! I'd love to see your server room...

meaningless icon! @Nefenjo A cot? I don't know if our shower stalls can compete with a cot for weirdness...

meaningless icon! @Rosuav We only have a couple of server closets here, most of our blinkenlights are remote, but I'll definitely put the server room/Sysadmin cave on the list!

meaningless icon! Now that I've seen most of these Nerd-Holy-Land-Mecca landmarks, these tour photographs don't seem quite so foreign to me. :)
