ThinkGeek Is Closing Its Website?!?

Over the years around here, we have perused ThinkGeek on the daily looking for cool stuff that geeks would want. We’ve also purchased more than a few of those geeky items for ourselves. I still have that air guitar shirt that plays music around here somewhere.

ThinkGeek was gobbled up by GameStop a while back, and the two maintain separate stores, with some ThinkGeek items at GameStop stores. ThinkGeek has now announced that it officially closing up shop and everything is going to GameStop – that’s a sad day for geekdom.

In the final moments of the ThinkGeek website, they’re offering some excellent deals, including a 50% off deal with promo code MOVINGDAY. Keep in mind that all sales are final.

For the last two decades, we here at ThinkGeek have had more fun than a barrel of monkeys being the destination retailer for all things geek. In that time, we went from selling a single T-shirt, to running a growing online business that caught the eye of a pretty big company (who then adopted us!), to being a full-fledged retailer with over 40 actual, real-life stores. Today, we’re announcing that we’ll be moving back in with our roommates (ahem, parents) over at GameStop. We know, cohabitating with the ‘rents may not be the coolest thing to announce on social, but there will be some changes and we’re guessing you’ll have questions. Click the link in our bio for all the info. And some things our lawyers made us say!

This kind of sucks. We like ThinkGeek, and it doesn’t appear that any fans of the website are happy about the deal. As more and more games move to streaming and download formats, GameStop is seen as a sinking ship, and it might take ThinkGeek with it. Sad we are today.

Terminator Dark Fate T-800 Action Figure Is Back

When Arnold said “I’ll be Back” in The Terminator, he solidified his throne as the summer blockbuster lead for the next several decades. The T-800 has appeared in several sequels, and this November he’s back again in Terminator: Dark Fate.

Fans of Arnold and the Terminator franchise can get this Dark Fate T-800 7″ action figure from NECA.

The figure is fully-articulated with “movie accurate” details and and authorized likeness of Arnie. It comes with an interchangeable head wearing sunglasses, and three deadly looking weapons to wield, presumably at the same time.

It’s available for preorder for $23.99 from Entertainment Earth and will ship this October.

Funko Pop! Alex Trebek Figure: I Lost on Jeopardy, Baby.

Jeopardy has been on TV seemingly forever, and with the recent health woes of host Alex Trebek, it’s possible it won’t be on the air too much longer. You can pay tribute to your favorite very serious game show host with this Funko Pop! Alex Trebek figure.

The figure features a modern-day likeness of a grey-haired Trebek, as he reads off a Final Jeopardy question in his dapper suit. If you’re really lucky, you might get the rare limited “Chase” edition of the figure, which features a more youthful Alex, complete with moustache.

The figures are sent out at random, so you get what you get if you buy one and don’t get the rare edition. “Alex, What is, throw a fit?” You can grab one over at Amazon for about $10, or you can cut right to the chase and guarantee yourself the Chase edition for about $40.

Crazy Strong Metal Foam Armor Stops .50 Cal Armor Piercing Rounds

Scientists from NC State University have created a new type of armor that could replace the rolled steel sort of military applications. The team created the new armor using a composite metal foam (CMF) that is less than half the weight of normal armor but can stop .50 cal ball and armor piercing ammo.

The armor is created using a foam made with hollow, metallic spheres made of materials like stainless steel or titanium embedded in a matrix made of steel, titanium, or other metallic alloys. In their testing, the armor absorbed 72-75% of the kinetic energy of .50 cal ball rounds and 68 to 78% of the energy from armor-piercing rounds.

The researchers think that the armor could allow military vehicles to be made safer with more armor without a weight penalty, or could allow the same level of protection as conventional armor, with better fuel economy and performance.
