To prevent getting taken by one of their April Fool’s jokes again this year, I’ve stayed away from ThinkGeek for several days. (Dang it, I wanted light saber popsicles!) I was checking them out yesterday, and I found a product that they swear is a real product. The Star Trek Inflatable Captain’s Chair is an officially licensed Star Trek collectible. It’s designed for kids, starting at age 3, or for smaller adults up to 120 pounds – though the guy in their product video seems to be heavier than that. The chair’s arm has lights and printed buttons for red alert, yellow alert, and jettison the pod commands. Inflated, it’s 27.75″ high x 29.25″ wide x 18″ deep. It’s in stock at ThinkGeek for $24.99. (It actually lets me put it in my cart, unlike their joke Star Wars Admiral Ackbar Singing Bass, which only gives me a “gotcha” message.)
