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 email@example.com.
ABOVE: Not only is this 1/3 scale Tie Fighter totally rad, it’s for sale! Here’s the Craiglist poster,
Have the coolest toy in your neighborhood! Approximately 1/3 scale TIE Fighter. 8x8x8 feet but breaks down into 5 pieces for easy transport in a pickup or can haul partially assembled (except for the top half of the wings) on a trailer.

If you live in Seattle you must make an offer, search your heart, you know it to be true. [geekologie]
After seeing Malmey Studios’ Darth Vader/Batman armor last year, John Harmon of Mint Condition Customs decided to create an action figure version of the concept. As badass as this looks, I can’t help but see those bat ears and think bunny ears. [NerdApproved]
Samara, Liara, Miranda and Tali from Mass Effect photographed by LJinto. All that’s missing is a FemShep cosplayer, or if it’s a dude, PimpShep. Though I think these ladies would be too tough to handle. [Cosplay Daily]
The year is 1890, you’ve just taken a new job at a place called Aperture. You’re given a pair of those most curious looking shoes. These were imagined by DeviantArt user batman-n-bananas who made them for her steampunk Chell costume, which also includes this incredible Portal gun. [FashionablyGeek]
This amazing Boba Fett bag by Esty seller, catpenfold was for sale but was quickly purchased. Not surprising, how could you look upon such an incredible bag and not need it immediately? Thankfully she has more geeky wares available for purchase, including quite a few Doctor Who items. Cyberman bag anyone? [GeekCrafts]
If you watch one stop-motion, LEGO video today, make it this one. You will not be disappointed. Oh, and you must stick around till the end for the masked villain’s reveal! [Toplessrobot]
This adorable Batgirl will smite you with her irresistible cute powers! No villain can stop her, because no villain can deny her. She’s simply, too cute. [Youtube]
Watch as a LASER plays the theme to Portal all while etching the Aperture Science logo. It’s crazy impressive! But,umm, will anyone tell the LASER it’s singing out of tune? Yeah, not me. [Geekologie]
Child protective services pay a visit to Master Splinter. It seem they take issue with him living in the sewers with four teenage boys. Hmm, wonder why? [Dorkly]
