As I’m sure you’ve heard, Thinkgeek is shutting down its website and merging with Gamestop next month. I’ve been following the brand since its start in 1999 when it was owned by Andover, the same people behind Slashdot at the time. It’s the end of an era, and a really sad one. Thinkgeek employed some of the coolest and most awesome geeks on the web, created products that no one ever thought would one day exist, and had the absolute best april fools’ day pranks of the Internet. I really hope Gamestop will follow the same path!
Now, to celebrate Thinkgeek’s 20th anniversary and to pay tribute to one of geekdom’s favorite online brands, the site is releasing a t-shirt featuring Timmy, their mascot, in cosplay throughout the years. It’s also a reminder of all the fun the site brought into our lives for the past two decades.
The t-shirt is priced at $21.99, but by using promo code “MOVINGDAY” at checkout, you can get it for just $11! Available in sizes small to 3XL.
Remember when we used to feed our spokesmonkey strained bananas? We do, and it seems like yesterday, but this year we are celebrating Timmy’s 20th birthday! What better way to celebrate than with a cool T-shirt? What… with a banana cream cake you say? Ok that would be awesome too, but we don’t know how to ship that (or make it, let’s be honest) so we’re gonna go with this tee.
Invite your friends, light some candles, and celebrate 20 years of geekdom with our ThinkGeek 20th Anniversary T-Shirt. This shirt features Timmy in his finest cosplay from over the years.
Personally, we love every Timmy cosplay so we’re glad we didn’t have to narrow it down much.
