For the past 10 years, we’ve been covering ThinkGeek’s crazy product selection from 8-Bit Ties to Star Wars Death Star Waffle Maker, but the retailer’s existed longer – since the time of Hampster Dance.
How do you stick around for 17 years when pop culture moves so fast? “You gotta move just as fast,” says copywriter Regan Avery. “This week we’re prepping products for Pokémon, Suicide Squad, Star Wars, and Star Trek, plus properties like Ghostbusters, The Flash, Captain America, Masters of the Universe, Dark Souls, Fallout, Assassin’s Creed, Harry Potter, Princess Bride, Adventure Time, Doctor Who, Mass Effect, Uncharted, and Halo.” It’s a lot to cover, but it helps that their employees are fans.
To celebrate 17 years of geeky awesomeness, Timmy and the ThinkGeek crew are holding an Anniversary Sale this week: over 100 items at 40-60% off, plus daily and flash deals. If you’ve had your eye on their Planetary Glass Set or Star Trek Next Generation Bedding, now’s your chance.
