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.

Nothing makes a tattoo sexier than where you put it. Unless it’s this NES tat, that’s sexy no matter where it is. (Fashionably Geek)
Aren’t these Taun Taun and Wampa plush Munny’s just adorable! Who wouldn’t want one? Either could be yours for the low, low price of $150. Hey, they’re custom-made by MeSmithy and “are based on a 7″ munny platform and embellished with sculpty, paint, and fur.” I’m sure they couldn’t part with them for any less. Get yours. (Nerd Approved)
Once you get your own Munny Taun Taun or Wampa they’d look great next to some of these incredible shots of Hoth, recreated in LEGO by Vesa Lehtimäki.
Geek Tyrant has a massive collection of this Hoth/LEGO photography that you simply must check out.
If only it was a frisbee made out of vibranium! (Dorkly)
Martyn Crofts appeared on Britain’s Got Talent with a truly, nerdy talent. He’s a world class Dalek impersonator. Honestly, I don’t why the guy didn’t win the whole thing right then and there. (io9)
The floppy disc orchestra is back and this time performing the theme to Doctor Who. Seems fitting to have outdated technology recreating the tune, hell, Doctor Who‘s been making outdated technology look cool for over 40 years! (TDW: Geek)
It’s the Star Wars theme, a cappella. Performed by Florida-based singer Nick McKaig. This is pretty freakin’ sweet. I particularly love his accompanying hand motions for the instruments. Nice touch. (Laughing Squid)
Why are heroes so good at making three-point landings? Sure it looks completely cool but I can’t imagine it’s the safest or most effective way to stick a landing. Go try it for yourself. Umm, actually, scratch that. I don’t want to liable for your broken bones. (Geek Tyrant)
