Space Invaders Arcade Cabinet Backpack

1

ThinkGeek is featuring an officially licensed Space Invaders Arcade Cabinet Backpack ($49.99) that provides a retro way of storing all of your small, medium, and large alien invaders. The water resistant backpack features an “invader design on zippers, silicone arcade cabinet buttons and an insert quarter hole,” and more.

As fun as carrying around an entire arcade cabinet on your back is, we decided to do something a lot more practical… and also something that will raise fewer eyebrows. We made one of the most iconic arcade games of all time into a backpack. A backpack that holds all the fancy things you need to beat back the increasingly speedy invaders, or just the stuff that you need to take notes in class or carry your stuff around. Whichever. That’s the glory of it! You’re prepared for all occasions!

Hold all the necessities to keep an invading alien army at bay with the Space Invaders Arcade Cabinet Backpack. Plenty of pockets and sleeves to hold all your pew pew laser ammo for taking down small, large, and medium enemies. It also holds regular people stuff, too, for when you’re taking some time off, hiding behind the bases at the bottom of the screen. Added bonus – you can stick your finger in the quarter slot! That is not a euphemism.

Star Wars R2-D2 Trashcan Available At Thinkgeek

r2d2_trashcan

Trash is just not that cool. Not only can it be dirty and odorous but it’s simply low-tech and boring.

At least that’s what we used to think… until we saw this amazing R2-D2 Trashcan and learned to love trash. This stylish officially licensed Lucasfilm collectible is imported from Japan and is an incredibly detailed vinyl replica of R2-D2. Step on R2’s center “foot” and his dome swings wide to collect your expired TPS reports and leftover wookie dung.

The removable interior can with handle makes trash removal easy. The outer dimensions are 23.5″ tall x 16″ wide and the wastebin inside measures 11″ tall.

You can order the Star Wars R2D2 Trashcan for $129.99 from Thinkgeek HERE.

ThinkGeek To Release Star Trek Phaser Remote Control In November 2014

1

Created using 3D scans of the actual prop used on the original Star Trek series, this phaser remote control will be officially revealed at ThinkGeek’s San Diego Comic Con booth next week.

The learning remote will control of IR-based devices using up to 36 stored commands. The device relies solely on motion gestures for its functions. Any motion you can think of—as long as they’re all relatively unique—can be used to control volume, change channels, or start a recording.

The phaser remote also includes authentic sound effects, vibrating force feedback, and the ability to lock out other users with a private passcode. It’s expected to be available in November for around $150.

Batman Family Car Decal Set

Every April Fools’ Day, ThinkGeek announces fake products that we wish were real. This year, they advertised the Batman Family Decal Set.

Though you can’t have everything that Batman can, you still can show your love for the caped crusader’s angst by sticking the Batman Family Car Decal Set on your car. One gravestone for Dr. Thomas Wayne, one gravestone for Martha Wayne, and one sad little Batman.

There is hope… Past ThinkGeek April Fools’ Day items such as the iCade, Tauntaun sleeping bag, and canned unicorn meat all became actual products.
