ThinkGeek plans to conquer San Diego Comic-Con with new merch
Locals cower in fear; visitors ask “what’s exclusive?”
FAIRFAX, Va., July 8, 2013 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ — ThinkGeek recently announced that they have sent forth the harbingers of their arrival to San Diego Comic-Con. Their messengers of impending awesome will be found at Booth #5541 from July 17-21.
Not content to simply show up, the ThinkGeek booth will provide con-goers the opportunity to buy con-exclusive merchandise such as Minecraft Gold Swords and Pickaxes, Portal 2 Deco Starfield Turrets, and Bravest Warrior pin packs and party masks. And that’s in addition to a wide selection of other ThinkGeek merch, including a gold and silver-plated working Sonic Screwdriver Universal Remote from the Eleventh Doctor.
For those not lucky enough to attend Comic-Con, most of the items will be available on the ThinkGeek.com website while supplies last.
When asked to comment on ThinkGeek’s prospects at San Diego Comic-Con, Erin Strain, Grand Pooba of Con-Ops, simply cackled in unrestrained delight, glee, and a bit of madness.
ThinkGeek will also announce and show new products in partnership with its many licensors. The ThinkGeek booth will highlight two new products for Marvel, two from FOX’s Firefly, and the just recently announced Tenth Doctor’s Sonic Screwdriver Universal Remote Control from The Wand Company.
Painstakingly 3D scanned from the original screen-used prop which was kindly loaned to The Wand Company by David Tennant himself, this Tenth Doctor’s Sonic Screwdriver is a faithful clone. Made of CNC-machined aluminum and crammed full of technology, it’s a fully functioning gesture-based universal remote control that looks, feels, and works just like the real prop.
