TRAVEL UNENCUMBERED

Over the years, you guys have had lots of feedback about our Bag of Holding line, so we decided to open it up to a few new form factors. Try them out. Let us know what fits your lifestyle and how you use them. We’ll keep the ones you like, revamp the ones we could make better, and drop the ones you don’t like into the fires of Mordor. Likeyado.

We’ve rerolled a bag that has the ability to go from backpack to satchel, because y’all said that was useful. Our first thought when we saw this one was “This is our new game night bag” just because it’s shaped as if it were made for a European board game. The buyer who made it says that’s no coincidence. But this is also for the savvy traveler. No, not Rudy Maxa. Well, him, too. But it’s for folks who have noticed that airlines are now charging you to check bags. And sometimes to put bags in the overhead bins. And basically if you don’t want to bungee all your belongings to yourself, you’d better have a carry-on bag that’ll tuck under the seat in front of you. This is that bag.

Our favorite thing about this bag is the laptop and tablet section. Note we said “laptop and tablet” not “laptop / tablet,” because who travels with just one or the other? They have unique functions. We’re geeks. We need both, especially if we’re not at our home base.

And as with our Con-Survival Edition Bag of Holding, if you’re carrying this bag at any convention where ThinkGeek has a booth, drop by for your free con-specific collectible patch!

Kitchen Nightmares!

On a dark, haunted night, a Russian oligarch dares a circle of international chefs to play the samurai game of 100 Candles--where each storyteller spins a terrifying tale of ghosts, demons and unspeakable beings--and prays to survive the challenge.

Inspired by the Japanese Edo period game of Hyakumonogatari Kaidankai, Hungry Ghosts reimagines the classic stories of yokai, yorei, and obake, all tainted with the common thread of food.

First course: With bad consequence, a ramen chef refuses to help a beggar, and a band of pirates get more (and less) than they were bargaining for after their encounter with a drowning woman turns ghastly.

Hungry Ghosts is cooked up by the infamous author and chef, Anthony Bourdain (Kitchen Confidential, Emmy-Award winning TV star of Parts Unknown) and acclaimed novelist Joel Rose (Kill, Kill, Faster, Faster, back again from their New York Times #1 best seller, Get Jiro!). Joining them this issue are stellar artists Alberto Ponticelli and Vanesa Del Rey, with amazing color by Jose Villarrubia, and a drop-dead cover by Paul Pope

Batman Logo Watch

What, you think Batman doesn’t have a watch to keep track of time? Granted, a Batwatch might have a laser cutter or something cool attached to it, but Batman for sure has places to be. He needs a watch to know when to be at the bank that Two-Face is planning on robbing. Might be a little embarrassing if he showed up late to that party. And possibly even worse if Bruce Wayne kept some Gotham millionaire waiting.

ThinkGeek’s 19th Anniversary Tee

It isn’t always easy to be a geek. Trust us: we have firsthand knowledge from our entire 8th grade year. Loving something, truly loving it, and putting that out there for the world to see makes you vulnerable. And that’s hard. 

Lion King Scar Lounger

All the lessons we learned as a child from The Lion King still apply to our adult life today. First, always listen to your father. A classic. Second, there’s the ciiiiirrrrrcle of life. Applies today and every day. Third, we learned that nothing beats the comfort of a lounger when you’re basking on a hot savannah day. (You remember that one, right? No? Must have been in the director’s cut.)
