While tiki culture has been an American staple since the early 20th century, it hasn’t quite made its way into mainstream pop culture. Beeline Creative’s Geeki Tikis is on a mission to change that.
Geeki Tikis is a company that creates tiki mugs based on your favorite superheroes, villains, iconic monsters, and video game characters. These tikis are well-made, ceramic mugs with impressive detailing. They range between 6 to 8 inches in height and can hold up to 14oz of liquid. Since they are ceramic, they have to be hand washed after use, but I think your Thor tiki would appreciate being handled with such care.
Currently there are around 45 different tikis. You can purchase some on the Geeki Tikis website, but most of these items can also be found on ThinkGeek, Amazon, GameStop, and Bed, Bath, and Beyond.
We start off with these awesome Fallout tikis. Based on the popular Bethesda franchise these Geeki Tikis will bring the party to your Vault or post-apocalyptic settlement. Even Preston Garvey would be able to relax with one of these tikis in his hand.
There are four Tikis to choose from: Dogmeat, Vault Boy, Deathclaw, and Power Armor. You can buy a set for $55.00 or buy them individually for only $11.99 (marked down from $15.00). They can be purchased from the Bethesda Store.
Sure to be your favorite tikis on the Citadel, these Mass Effect Tikis bring inebriation to your calibrations. These ceramic tikis include 6 different characters from both the original Mass Effect Trilogy (Garrus, Tali, Grunt) and Mass Effect: Andromeda (Drack, Jaal, Peebee).
The whole set is available through ThinkGeek for $79.99, but you can buy them individually from the BioWare Store for $11.99. At the time of this writing, the Tali, Garrus, and Grunt tikis were out of stock. Hopefully there will be more available in the future.
In a galaxy far, far away, Poe Dameron is sitting on a beach enjoying delightful Corellian Rum in an awesome Chewbacca tiki. Or maybe Kylo Ren is sipping sparkling water from a tiki that looks just like his dear old grandfather. Regardless of which side you’re on, these Star Wars tikis are a perfect addition to your celebrations.
There are two sets of Star Wars tikis available on Think Geek for $79.99 per set. Series 1 has Boba Fett, Chewbacca, Darth Vader, Yoda, a Stormtrooper, and R2-D2. Series 2 includes C-3PO, a Jawa, a Tusken Raider, Wicket, a Tauntaun, and a Wampa. If you only want to buy one of them, you can find them online on Amazon, Bed, Bath and Beyond, or the GameStop websites (roughly about $14.99 each). There is a Jabba the Hutt and Salacious Crumb set that you can buy at GameStop.
Star Trek: The Original Series
“Dammit Jim, I’m a doctor, not a tiki mug!” Celebrate the original Star Trek cast by buying these tikis. Unfortunately there are no Mirror Universe versions or tribbles. There also isn’t a second series, which is a bit disappointing for us Scotty, Chekov, Sulu and Uhura fans. If they do release a second set, I vote for a Khan tiki. Get it? Like Kon-Tiki?
These mugs are available on the ThinkGeek website and other retailers. You can only buy the whole set for $79.99 from Think Geek, but the set includes Captain Kirk, Dr. McCoy, Mr. Spock, a Gorn, a Klingon, and a Mugato. If you look for these Tikis individually you can find them on sites like Entertainment Earth for $19.99.
Star Trek: The Next Generation
Of course, we can’t have Star Trek tikis without having The Next Generation represented. Now you can drink in style while composing a poem for your favorite cat.
You can buy the set from ThinkGeek for $79.99 which includes Captain Picard, Lt. Geordi La Forge, Lt. Worf, a Cardassian, a Ferengi, and the Borg. If you don’t want the set, you can buy them individually. There isn’t a second series, which is a shame because I would have loved a Q and Lwaxana Troi tiki mug.
This set from Geeki Tikis is available on ThinkGeek for $94.99, and at GameStop. It includes Justice League members Aquaman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Superman, Flash, Cyborg, and Green Lantern.
As for Marvel Comics Geeki Tikis, there is quite a selection out there. ThinkGeek only has a couple of options available, but with a quick search you can find other major Marvel Superheroes.
On ThinkGeek you can buy Spider-Man and Iron Man for $29.99, and Hulk and Thor for $29.99. There is also a Guardians of the Galaxy set for $79.99 that includes Baby Groot, Star-Lord, Rocket Raccoon, Drax, Gamora, and old Groot. You can also get a Thor and Loki tiki mug set from Box Lunch for $36.90.
These tikis are sold separately on Amazon and GameStop. In addition to the ThinkGeek collections you can buy Blank Panther, Deadpool, Wolverine, and Venom mugs. Supplies are limited, so if you’re in need of any of these four tikis, you need to get buying now.
There are also rare tikis available like Rick and Morty or Yondu which were Loot Crate items last year. Sadly, you can’t buy these mugs unless you’re willing to pay a markup price on eBay. Geeki Tiki also has Mythical Creatures, classic Monsters, and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. And if you’re a fan of the movie Pulp Fiction, you can buy a Jules and Vincent mug set for $50.00.
More tikis will be released in the near future. Expect to hear more news about the new Captain America, Doctor Strange, Thanos, Ant-Man, Spider-Gwen, Punisher, and Daredevil tikis mugs coming this Spring.
