To celebrate Star Wars day I’m bringing you news relating to everyone’s favorite space drama, Star Trek. You’ve all seen the gif of Star Trek: The Next Generation Captain Jean-Luc Picard holding his head in his hand looking dismayed. Well now you can look at this classic facepalm anywhere you like in the privacy of your own home, all in a fetching bronze.
The good folks over at ThinkGeek have released a 6″ bronze edition bust of the iconic pose, one that you can purchase for the sum of $69.99. Just take a look at it in all its glory, and check out the official description below:
“Disappointing Captain Jean-Luc Picard is one of the worst things you can do. Seriously. In order, it’s: making a fool of yourself in front of Captain Picard, destroying the universe, and accidentally initiating the self-destruct sequence in your sleep. And since the dreaded Picard facepalm is such a big deal, we decided to “bronze it.” That way everyone can express their disappointment in us with bronzed Picards. Does it make the sting of embarrassment better or worse? We still don’t know.
Set phasers to facepalm, the Captain Picard Facepalm Bust is back as a ThinkGeek Exclusive limited bronze edition! With so many opportunities to judge people, you might want to consider stocking up, especially if you’re more judgmental than Q. At least now you can “spill the tea” like a pro: Earl Grey. Hot.”
This isn’t the first Picard bust that ThinkGeek has produced, they previously released a full-color version that was limited to a run of 1602. Which obviously sold out. The bust itself is an officially licensed Star Trek product and will once again be a limited run. The site itself doesn’t say how many they will make or for how long they’ll sell these so if you want a piece of Star Trek history in your bathroom, and you do, best get on to it quick. In the meantime live long and may the force be with you.
Steve is the resident Englishman, just don’t hold that against him. He’s been playing games for the best part of 3 decades and will continue to do so for as long as his thumbs hold up. When they no longer work, he’ll still find a way to play Resident Evil 2. Lover of most things nerdy Steve also likes sports. Go sports!
