GEEK PICK OF THE DAY Star Trek TNG Captain Picard Facepalm Bust

first_img Big. Mood.Those two words can say so much, depending on what you’re looking at. Few things are as big mood as Sir Patrick Stewart as Captain Jean-Luc Picard of the Enterprise NCC-1701-D and -E holding his hand to his face in disbelief at what he has to deal with.Now you can get that in your home, in desktop statue form. Because some memes really do deserve merchandising. The Star Trek TNG Captain Picard Facepalm Bust is a ThinkGeek exclusive product, and possibly the most on-point item to ever cross my desk.It’s exactly what it sounds like: a resin bust of Jean-Luc Picard holding his hand to his face, like in the well-worn screencap from Star Trek: The Next Generation episode 3×13 “Deja Q” that’s become one of the signature examples of the facepalm meme. That’s the one where Q is turned human because the other Q got tired of his bullshit.This is a full-color statue standing 6 inches tall and weighing about a pound, with downright fantastic detail in both the sculpting and painting. Captain Picard’s shirt is naturally rumpled reflecting the bend of his arm, his combadge and rank insignia are molded and individually painted with gold and silver, and his closed eyes just scream comedic headache stemming from the awkward situation in front of him. This is Peak Picard. The base is black, with a molded Delta shield on the front, holding up the one-armed bust of the captain.Incidentally, if you aren’t obsessed with Star Trek, you just learned two things today: that the Picard facepalm meme comes from the episode “Deja Q,” and that the pointy Starfleet insignia is known as the Delta shield.The Star Trek TNG Captain Picard Facepalm Bust is available from ThinkGeek for $64.99 and is limited to a run of 1,602. Why the run isn’t 1,701, or 2,367, I’m not sure. Either way, it’s a Big Mood. Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.
