ThinkGeek Rolls Out PAX East 2013 Exclusives

Fairfax, VA – ThinkGeek (NASDAQ: GKNT) has provisioned an away team for the trip to Hoth (aka Boston, MA) for PAX East 2013. This intrepid team will be traveling with never-before-seen limited edition Minecraft and Portal Con Tour Exclusives.
The ThinkGeek 2013 Con Tour Exclusives are:
Gold Pickaxe and Sword from Minecraft – A follow up to the Minecraft Foam Sword and Foam Pickaxe, two of ThinkGeek’s most popular items, the Gold version has shiny EVA foam and all the con bling you’ll need. $25 each
Starfield Portal 2 Turret with Sound – Oh, there you are.  This special edition variant on ThinkGeek’s Portal 2 Turret LED Flashlight is bound to be a sought-after collector’s item. $10
These three Con Tour Exclusives will only be available for purchase when ThinkGeek is officially vending at a con!  However, for those unable to attend, they will be available on ThinkGeek.com during the duration of the show as well, and during PAX East, visitors to the site will be offered free shipping on orders over $25.  It’s just like being at a con—except the food is better and there isn’t an uncomfortable guy dressed like Pikachu.
“We wanted to make something special for our fans and the fans of Portal and Minecraft,” says Ty “King of Cosplay” Liotta, Chief Mucky-Muck of GeekLabs. “These limited edition exclusives will give people something fun to collect and show off.”

ThinkGeek Unveils iCade 8-bitty at NYC Toy Fair

FAIRFAX, VA – February 13, 2012 – ThinkGeek is set to unveil its newest product, iCADE 8-Bitty, at the 2012 Toy Fair in New York City.  Its big brother, the iCADE gaming cabinet, began as an April Fool’s joke and soon became the most anticipated ThinkGeek product to date.  The iCADE 8-Bitty will bring the magic of the iCADE to the pockets of smartphone and tablet users by delivering an enhanced gaming experience everyone can enjoy.
“We’re excited to extend on the success of the original iCADE,” said Ty Liotta, head of ThinkGeek’s GeekLabs. “And with millions of iOS and Android devices in circulation it only makes sense to widen the field and bring the fun of iCADE to every possible device.”
The iCADE 8-Bitty is a wireless game controller that sports a classic D-Pad and button layout reminiscent of retro 8-bit game consoles from the 80’s and 90’s.  The 8-Bitty is battery powered, and connects with your device wirelessly.  It features a fully-functional directional game pad and eight buttons, just like the iCADE.
The 8-Bitty supports the iCADE’s growing list of hundreds of top games, including the Atari Classics collection, Pac Man, Super Mega Worm, and many more.  Developers of iOS and Android games can tap into the public API specification to make just about any game compatible with iCADE, and the list of supported games grows every week.  More information on compatible games can be found on ThinkGeek’s website at http://thinkgeek.com/iCADEGames.
The iCADE 8-Bitty will be available later this year for $24.99 at ThinkGeek.com.  To see it up close at Toy Fair, stop by the ThinkGeek booth #3125.
