@IconHeroes Announce Three New @ThinkGeek Exclusives
April 3, 2017
This week our friends over at Icon Heroes announced 3 new products available exclusively at ThinkGeek:
Star Trek TNG Picard Facepalm Mousepad – Exclusive

Facepalm into the vastness of space

Some things transcend language. Music, art, and the facepalm are on that prestigious list. Not many people have performed such an epic facepalm as Picard has. We can only dream of such noteworthy levels of frustration. And now you can have that frustration close at hand as a mouse pad. We truly live in a golden age, my friends.

Have Picard be right there with you the next time you need an epic facepalm. Left your lunch at home? Facepalm. Accidentally replied all? Facepalm. Forgot you were on voice chat with your entire guild and said something super embarrassing? Facepalm. The list goes on and on, and Picard will be there for all of them.

The Flash TV Star Labs Business Card Case

Pull out those business cards as quick as The Flash

When you’re off shmoozing and mingling with some of the world’s greatest heroes you may need a business card or twenty. You can’t just have those bad boys just floating around in your wallet or bag, though. They need a little respect – they need to be handled with care. Your cards deserve a proper case. One that makes you seem incredibly important, even if your job title is quite literally “Person who goes out to get coffee and lunch for everyone.” It’s a very prestigious position. Not for the faint of heart or undercaffeinated.

Keep your business cards safe in this case with the Star-Labs logo and name on it. The case is a sleek black color with white lettering. Let everyone know that you’re working for a better future with some diligent research.

The Flash TV Star Labs Mousepad

Because knowledge is power

S.T.A.R. Labs has been a key player in a lot of our favorite DC Comics heroes’ stories. From The Flash to Cyborg, the world can be called a better place for its existence. Things might be a little different if Lex Luthor was actually able to buy it out like he wanted so we’ll tip our hat, and, in this case, our mouse, to S.T.A.R. Labs. Thanks for being awesome throughout the years. We like the science that you do. Big fans.

This mousepad features the slogan “Work hard. Run fast. Rewrite history.” on a black polyester background. The pad has a rubber bottom to keep it from sliding all over. How’s that for futuristic technology? The future is now!

Daniel Pickett
Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Time.com, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post, CNN.com, AssociatedPress.com Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
