LEGO Star Wars Army Pack

You’ve got your Echo Base LEGO Set and you’re ready to recreate the Battle of Hoth, complete with Instant Snow. But what happens when your minifigs die in battle? With only a couple snowtroopers, a couple rebels, and Han Solo, the Battle of Hoth would end pretty quickly. Or you’d have to recycle guys. Even […]

Mario Kart Racetrack Set

Our office geek girls were happy to see Princess Peach represented in this slot car set. Finally, self-rescuing princesses everywhere can have their own car rather than being a stinky plumber. Oh, and we can do what needs to be done, which is leaving Mario and Luigi in our dust! Take that, boys! Okay, but […]

Line Tracking Robot

The laws of robotics are a wonderful. They keep all of us from being afraid of our Roombas and automated litterboxes. But what happens when you give your tween geek a robot building kit? Well, if you’re lucky and have raised your child right, you should end up with a functioning, three laws safe robot. […]

Video Swim Mask

Little did you know, all the underwater scenes in The Little Mermaid were filmed using Video Swim Masks. (You see, the local Merpeople Videographers Union 42 refused to work the project, so humans had to be used.) The scuba diver crewmen couldn’t handle all their gear and their video cameras, so the great Mouse himself […]

LEGO Hero Factory

“The LEGO Hero Factory includes a whole bunch of different figures that are a part of the galaxy’s most powerful peace-keeping organization. But we thought, “”Saving the world is dumb, give us the evil guys!”” We’re all about the evil here at ThinkGeek, especially since everyone knows evil will always win because good is dumb. […]

LEGO Harry Potter Game

LEGO has made a big splash in the board game world since releasing their line of 18 board games in the US. As hardcore gamers ourselves, we will do our best to tell you which are best for the gamer and which are best for wee geeks. Either way, LEGO pieces! Whee! The lead designer […]

R/C Flying Millennium Falcon

“We considered using Lando Calrissian’s quote about the Millennium Falcon being the “”fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy”” as the headline to this product, but then we thought that there’d be someone who would think this product was a hunk of junk, so we thought better of it. Instead, we’re going to tell you […]

Darth Vader Robotic Arm

“There’s lots that can be said about Vader’s robotic arm. Except the big problem is that a lot of it is non-movie canon, which throws certain geeks into fits of Mountain Dew-frothing rage. (We know because a good many of us fall into that category.) So maybe we shouldn’t mention anything about the stuff that […]

Star Wars Lightsaber Pen

“If there’s one thing we love at ThinkGeek (okay, there isn’t, but play along), it’s mind hacks. The little things you can do to pull a Jedi mind trick on your brain and make you perform better. One that we learned back in our school days was to declare one pen our “”lucky pen.”” Said […]

LEGO Minotaurus Game

LEGO has made a big splash in the board game world since releasing their line of 18 board games in the US. As hardcore gamers ourselves, we will do our best to tell you which are best for the gamer and which are best for wee geeks. Either way, LEGO pieces! Whee! The lead designer […]
