Nerdy Bits: Boba Fettish, George R. R. Martin Reads Nursery Rhymes, Hot Velma Cosplay, Vegeta’s Tribute to Whitney Houston and MOAR!
Every day the internet produces an astounding amount of goodies and gems. Most hilarious, some amusing, but all worth at least a few seconds of your time. We here at Nerd Bastards try to bring you the best bits of news and nerdery the webz has to offer, with a bit of snark thrown in. But sometimes not everything makes the cut.
Monday through Friday we’ll be bringing you our inbox leftovers, our forgotten bookmarks, the nerdy bits that simply slipped through the cracks. You can submit items to Nerdy Bits by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org
ABOVE: Happy Valentines Day nerds. Here’s Boba Fettish. I, for one, would have no problem spending a few thousand years in a Sarlacc pit with this Fett. [Fashionably Geek]
This cake is my kind of scum. Fearless and inventive. [Neatorama]
I do not approve of anything that results in putting more money in George Lucas’ pocket, but I may have to make an exception for this one. Hasbro’s San Diego Comic-Con 2012 exclusive Star Wars set will feature 6 non-exclusive figures on prototype cardback art from the original vintage line, surrounding a cardboard carbon-freezing chamber that houses a Jar Jar Binks in carbonite figure. [NerdApproved]
Kids today have it good when it comes to toys and collectibles, and this product here…proves big time. Yep what you see above is a nite light in the shape of a Darth Maul’s double bladed lightsaber. Oh craps, here I am again advertising more Star Wars products, but oh man, how I would have love to have this. [ObviousWinner]
Game of Thrones author George R. R. Martin reads nursery rhymes. [TheMarySue]
Not sure if you want to buy Mass Effect 3? Well, this 40 minute preview, which includes game play an cinematics, should be sufficient in your decision process. [ToplessRobot]
Whitney Houston was found dead over the weekend. While there will surely be many a tributes to her in the coming days, I think this Vegeta tribute may be the most brilliant. Who knew the Saiyan prince had such a beautiful voice. [Geekosystem]
