 Bring the thrill of command to any room of the house!

FAIRFAX, VA – April 2, 2012 – ThinkGeek is proud to announce the latest addition to their line of officially licensed Star Trek collectibles.  The Star Trek Inflatable Captain’s Chair comes straight from the bridge of the original U.S.S. Enterprise, and joins other popular ThinkGeek collectibles such as the Star Trek Pizza Cutter and the Star Trek Electronic Door Chime.

“Captain Kirk once said ‘Galloping around the cosmos is a game for the young,’ ” said Ty Liotta, head of ThinkGeek’s GeekLabs. “We took that idea and created a product young fans of Star Trek would crave for their own adventures.”

Designed with wee geeks in mind, the Star Trek Inflatable Captain’s Chair supports those ages 3 to small adult (maximum weight of 120 lbs).  The arms of the chair feature series-accurate representations of the buttons and controls available to Captain Kirk.  When inflated, the chair measures approximately 27.75” high x 29.25” wide x 18” deep.

The Star Trek Inflatable Captain’s Chair is available now for $24.99 at ThinkGeek.com and joins other ThinkGeek created Star Trek products including the StarTrekElectronicDoorChime, StarTrekEnterprisePizzaCutter, StarTrekEnterprisePlush and StarTrekEnterpriseLight-UpFeedingSystem.   Browse all of ThinkGeek’s officially licensed Star Trek products at thinkgeek.com/startrek.

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, 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.
