A FIDGET TOY IN DISGUISE

Ah, spinner rings: the best way to burn off a little nervous energy without drawing too much attention to one’s self. Which is a good thing, because we’re more than a little justified in having some nervous energy to burn off, what when the fate of our planet hangs in the balance between two dueling factions of alien machines.

Declare yourself for the side of the Decepticons and work out a bit of tension with this Transformers Autobot Spinner Ring. Made from surgical-grade stainless steel (not technomatter – sorry), it’s got the Transformers logo and Decepticons insignia debossed in bright purple enamel on the spinner. Just remember, your squishy human bits may not go over so well with the rest of the Decepticons, so made sure you work out all that nervous energy before you meet up with the rest of them. Because for Decepticons, only power matters.

For our customers with nickel allergies: These are made from 316L grade surgical stainless steel. That means their five main components are iron, chromium, nickel (10-14%), molybdenum, and manganese. This is implant-grade steel.

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

Star Wars Lando Polo Shirt

When you’re a teenager, you can get away with wearing a t-shirt and jeans to almost anything. You might get some eyerolls, but generally that’s all anybody expects out of your wardrobe. But you know, when you’re an adult – well, having adult clothing is the price you pay for being successful.

Star Wars: Solo Retro Han Solo Pullover Shirt

Probably this copywriter monkey’s favorite thing about the Solo movie is that all our Han Solo products no longer feature him frozen in carbonite. There are only so many different things you can say about that, and we ran out somewhere between Business Card Case and Fridge. (Rug. Cutting board. Ice cube tray. Shower curtain. Bank. Bottle opener….) You know what color this shirt reminds us of? Carbonite. Yup. It’s like Han’s in carbonite AGAIN. Only this time you’re in the carbonite with him once you don this shirt. But that could be okay. It looks safe. And comfy.

Star Wars: Solo Out West Wookiee Button Down Shirt

So the Dark Side has cookies. So what? Can a cookie be your co-pilot? Can a cookie wield a bowcaster? Can a cookie go outside on Hoth without bundling up in 27 layers of clothing like everybody else? Well, okay. Technically, yes. But that’s besides the point. Because if you want to enjoy the cookie you have to EAT the cookie and then what do you have left? Nothing but crumbs. If you pick the Light Side, you know what you have the next day? Wookiee. And the next day. And the next. Wookiees are nothing if not loyal.
