LOS ANGELES – July 18, 2018 –
ThinkGeek, the premier retailer for the global geek community and the number one destination for collectibles and statues, is excited to announce new products and exclusives that will be available during San Diego Comic-Con, booth number 3349.

Here are some highlights of what will be available at the booth…

Star TrekTM Rock Mood Light ($70) – ThinkGeek as teamed up with The Wand Company to bring the Star Trek phaser-controlled Rock Mood Light to SDCC.  This officially-licensed Star Trek: The Original Series hand-painted rock is modeled after the effects seen on Alfa 177 in “The Enemy Within.”  The rock comes with with an LED inside which glows when you fire the included Type-1 phaser at it.  The rock comes with two modes: Survival (which “heats” the rock) and Atmosphere (which turns it into a light show with seven colors).

In Survival mode, pressing and holding the remote’s trigger makes phaser firing sounds and imparts a red glow to the rock (as if you’re heating it).  The glow then dims once you release the trigger.  Atmosphere mode can be controlled via phaser remote or buttons on the bottom of the rock.

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 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,, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post,,,, Boing-Boing,, 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.
