ThinkGeek Booth

While typically my PAX Wests all revolve around gaming, I’m no stranger to other aspects of geek culture. Hell, approximately 80% of my T-shirts are video game themed shirts, and my amiibo collection is slightly huge. So I guess what I’m trying to say is, I’m a bit surprised that this was the first year oprainfall and myself have covered game related memorabilia. Nevertheless, it’s the first time, and this year I got to meet with ThinkGeek!

ThinkGeek | Merch

Known for their wide assortment of gaming memorabilia, ranging from Mega Man coasters (which I really should have picked up at the show) to Fallout welcome mats to Super Mario canteens, they have a lot of stuff that gamers like myself would love to own. But this year in particular, I got to meet with them to check out their official Zelda: Breath of the Wild product line.

ThinkGeek Collection

This massive collection had as much clothing as it did accessories, and it was all made to look like it was pulled straight out from the Switch screen. Produced with Musterbrand, there was some really cool stuff shown at PAX West. They had ponchos, T-shirts, beanies and even backpacks. If you like decorating your home, they also had a lot of merchandise ready to hang on your walls. It was a veritable treasure trove of gaming goodness, especially if you consider yourself a true Zelda fan.

ThinkGeek | Shield

I’m glad I had the opportunity to met with ThinkGeek this year, and hope you appreciate some of the stuff I took pictures of. If you want to see more of what is available, just check out their official website. Stay tuned to oprainfall in the future for more nerdy gaming goodness!
