ThinkGeek is knocking out of the park with its San Diego Comic-Con exclusive items this year. Yesterday we talked about the obscurely cool Star Trek mood rock light thingy. Today, we have a Rick and Morty Pickle Rick sleeping bag that you know you want.
It’s a 1-2 season mummy-style sleeping bag aiming at summer camping. You can wear it as a full body costume too, if you want to be an immobile pickle with a cartoon face. It has a double zipper closure and measures 86″ x 29″. That means you freakishly tall nerds might not fit all that well.
It also comes with a backpack-style stash bag with Rick’s face on it bugging out because he is now a pickle. The sleeping bag is $24.99 and is available today at ThinkGeek.
If you ever watched the original Star Trek TV series, you might remember an episode called “The Enemy Within.” I’ve never seen that episode, but apparently, it involves Kirk and crew using phasers to superheat rocks until they glow to survive a planet where the temperature drops to 120-degrees below zero. ThinkGeek turned up at San Diego Comic-Con this week showing off a sweet light-up rock based on that episode.
The hand-painted “rock” comes with a remote control that looks like an original series phaser. It has two modes, with one that “heats” the rock making it slowly glow brighter and another mode called “atmosphere,” which produces a variety of colorful lighting effects. The rock can even dim slowly over ten minutes as if it’s cooling down from its intense heat.
Trekkies looking to get their rocks off can do so at ThinkGeek for $69.99.
It’s only June, but you don’t have to travel very far in Colorado to find snow still on some of the taller mountains. If you head to a higher altitude before noon on any morning and it feels like winter never left. Before you know it, kids will be in school and snow will be blowing in and you need a good chance of keeping yourself warm. Like a 1-in-20 chance.
This Crit Success D20 Beanie and Scarf Set will keep you toasty when the cold weather arrives. It comes with an 84″ long double-sided scarf with eight red D20s on each side and fuzzy tassels at the end. The beanie, or toboggan hat as we call them where I’m from, has a single D20 on its folded-up brim. Sadly, these one-size-fits-all hats rarely cover my ears thanks to my case of cranium enormous.
Dungeon masters, you can get your D20 beanie and hat at ThinkGeek for $29.99.
I remember the first time I was wandering the wasteland in Fallout 4 and happened on some power armor. I hopped in and waltzed into a train yard filled with ghouls and commenced beating irradiated bitches left and right. It was awesome until my Fusion Core ran out and I had to jump out and was killed by the mob. I reloaded the game, promptly cheated my way into unlimited Fusion Cores, and killed them all in retribution.
Now you can get your own Fallout Fusion Core without cheating… unless you need to sneak money out of your significant other’s wallet to pay for it. This is a perfect full-scale replica of the Fusion Core from the game and has a removable core and base.
It measures 8.5″ tall and 5.5″ in diameter at the base. Unlike the real thing, this one is made from injection-molded plastic, and unfortunately it doesn’t glow – which you might be able to fix with a little modding skill and some LEDs.
Get your power armor sprint on for $49.99 at ThinkGeek. This would go great with that plasma rifle replica from last week.
Deadpool 2 is a very cool flick and if you haven’t seen it yet, I won’t spoil it (wear your white pants). If your local theater keeps it cool enough to freeze off your chimichangas, you might want to take this Deadpool Tapestry Throw with you. The woven blanket features an image of ‘Pool sitting at a table eating pizza, as his pals do the hard work outside.
The scene on the tapestry blanket is based on Julian Totino Tedesco’s cover for Thunderbolts #17. You can see Punisher, Elektra, and Venom outside fighting outside. The catch is that the characters other than Deadpool are hard to make out but trust us they are there.
ThinkGeek has the throw for $29.99, which is about the cost of a small popcorn at the theater these days. The throw is officially licensed and made from 100% polyester. Plus, it can be machine washed and dried so if you forget your brown pants, you can clean it.
The sun comes up REALLY early here in Colorado. I thought it was like 10 am last weekend, and it was only 6 am. I blame the house behind me with the mirror tint on the back windows, and the fact that Colorado is roughly 16 inches from the surface of the sun. You can easily get a sunburn on your sunburn around here. I need some blackout blinds to keep the sun from waking me too early. Plain ‘ol blinds are boring, but these Orion Nebula Blackout Blinds aren’t.
They look like you are peering out of the portal of a space ship. The picture of the Orion Nebula on the blinds is based on the incredible STScl-2006-01 image, which was composed using over 500 photos taken by the Hubble Space Telescope and the La Silla Observatory. It blocks out all the outside light, while letting the stars shine inside.
You can get these roller shades in either 36″ or 48″ wide by 60″ tall sizes. Mounting brackets are included and both sizes are available now from ThinkGeek for $69.99 and $79.99, respectively.
Deadpool 2 is hitting theaters soon, and not long after, it will be hitting Blu-Ray and streaming services. You know what that means. It means kicking back and watching the movie at home while wearing these cool Deadpool Fuzzy Bunny Slippers.
Wear them everywhere – while reading comics, while going to the convenience store, or while interviewing applicants for your new superhero team. These slippers depict Deadpool himself with floppy bunny ears and a fluffy tail in back. I’m sure Deadpool wishes his costume had ears and a tail.
They will be so comfy and so cute that your feet will thank you. You know what you have to do, right? You have to wear these with your Deadpool costume and go around town doing weird superhero stuff so that people think Deadpool has lost his mind. At least do that until you get a cease and desist letter from Marvel’s lawyers. Then keep doing crazy stuff until you get arrested. Don’t worry, it’s all good. These Deadpool bunny slippers will keep your feet warm in the holding cell.
Seriously, though, these are going to be so warm and cozy to wear around the house. I think I’m man enough to pull these off. I think. Grab a pair for yourself over at ThinkGeek for just $29.99.
I think we have all gotten dressed in a funk early on a Monday and not bothered to look out the window until we open the door to leave. Typically we don’t look outside because we’ve been busy wondering just how bad would it be to not have a job. The only thing worse than a Monday heading off to work is a rainy Monday heading to work because you’ll need an umbrella, and people drive like idiots in the rain.
At least your umbrella can make you smile, assuming you opt for this Rick and Morty umbrella and not some boring ass basic black one.
This umbrella is the smallish portable type that can fit in a purse or backpack. It’s decorated with that portal green swirl, and when dry the umbrella has a white blob that looks kind of like bird poo on top. When it gets wet, Rick’s hand turns up in that blob giving the finger, because FU rain.
Get yours at ThinkGeek for $24.99, and give rain the finger.
