I've been a huge Fallout fanboy for decades. I was absolutely jazzed to have the opportunity to work with Bethesda Softworks' IP to design several lines of products for their games.

Nuka Cola Bottle
I worked with Bethesda Softworks' Fallout license to produce what might be the greatest product in the history of licensed merchandise. If you're a Fallout fan reading this you're probably saying, "There's an officialy licensed glass Nuka Cola bottle in the word and I don't have it? GIVE IT TO ME NOW!" I designed this for Think Geek but due to issues with a Gamestop buyout, the project slipped through the cracks and never made it passed the initial sampling phase. As of today there have only been 6 of them produced. This will almost certainly be a best seller if another customer picks it up in the future. If you're one of the few people that have an existing bottle you should treat it like the most precious baby of all the precious babies. I also designed a set of plastic Nuka Cola bottles that are currently on sale if you're into that sort of thing.
Nuka Cola Clock
I designed several Nuka Cola themed products and packaging for Fallout. This metal Nuka Cola bottle cap clock was one of my favorite projects and it was a best seller for ThinkGeek as well. If you want to see it in more detail check out this unboxing video.
Pip Boy Mug
This made a huge splash on the fandom websites when it hit store shelves but it wasn't all smooth sailing along the way. There were a lot of naysayers when I first brought up this concept. "It will be way too big." they said. "You'll need a forklift just to raise it to your mouth." they argued. "Don't give me none of that flip flappin' jibber jabber!" I exclaimed. Thankfully the people at Just Funky and Bethesda agreed with me as it went on to become a best seller for ThinkGeek.
Vault Boy Mat
"Welcome Home" was a theme of the franchise when it returned with Fallout 4. It seemed like a no brainer to turn it into a welcome mat. This was a best seller for Think Geek and Gamestop.
