SNES Classic in stock at ThinkGeek, but there’s a big catch

Even though Nintendo promised to produce more SNES Classics than it did NES Classics, the retro mini-console has still be a difficult product to find.

What's an SNES Classic hunter supposed to do?

NES Classic Edition available NOW from ThinkGeek (with details)

NES Classic Edition available NOW from ThinkGeek (with details)

The NES Classic Edition is again available from ThinkGeek this afternoon, starting immediately if not soon. This sale is from a collection of units apparently acquired by what GameStop describes as "one of the buying ninjas at GameStop" - whatever that means. They'll be selling these original boxed Nintendo-made real-deal NES Classic Edition consoles for a price that's not the original, yet not quite the mega-massive markup we've grown to expect from eBay.

These glowing Alien Xenomorph eggs should be in your Easter basket

Easter is nearly upon us, and with it comes some expected items -- annoying plastic grass, a last-minute snowstorm, and lots and lots of eggs. Boiled eggs. Colored eggs. Plastic eggs, real eggs. No matter which version you use, they'll probably be cute and colorful and maybe full of candy. It's all quite saccharine sweet, one might say. Why not make things interesting, then, by bringing some Xenomorphs to the party?

Millennium Falcon Multi-Tool Kit puts the Swiss Army knife to shame

There’s a new Millennium Falcon on the block, and it’s small enough to fit in your pocket. The Star Wars Millennium Falcon Multi-Tool Kit is exactly what it sounds like — a multi-tool in the shape and style of the Millennium Falcon. With it, you can tweak and tinker small things: the loose screw on the kitchen cabinet, the little piece of plastic that keeps rattling in your car’s dash, and the phone battery that never pops out easily.

Flux Capacitor Keychain does nothing at 88mph

Flux Capacitor Keychain does nothing at 88mph

One of the coolest of all the '80s movies was "Back to the Future". The first films was great, the second and third left a bit to be desired though. One of the things I remember most about the movie from my youth was the DeLorean, because if you are going to build a time machine, you should do it with style. I also remember the flux capacitor vividly.

Star Wars R2-D2 coffee press is the preorder your morning needs

Star Wars R2-D2 coffee press is the preorder your morning needs

There’s no shortage of Star Wars kitchen supplies; they span all sorts of gizmos, things like the X-Wing knife block and a dinner timer. Arguably the greatest among them all, though, is a new R2-D2 coffee press that has gone up for preorder. This coffee press looks like a miniature -- though still somewhat large -- R2-D2, only with a clear body rather than a white one. That inner empty space can hold up to 32 ounces of brewed coffee.
