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 nerdybits@nerdbastards.com.

ABOVE: captured at the recent Motor City Comic Con 2012 (photographed by Metromix) some really awesome and strangly tight costumes… wait a minute… THAT’S BODY PAINT?!? Enhance…. enhance…. damn it, it’s not working.[Bleeding Cool]

Thor single malt whisky. Do I even need to make another “This drink, I like it! Another!” joke? Oh, looks like I just did. It costs $245 and has nothing to do with The Avengers. Conversely, it is still booze and that makes it awesome. [thatsnerdalicious]

The sheer amount of joy you can have with your significant other and this Doctor Who TARDIS bath robe (shipping in July, costing $75) is astounding. Gentlemen, what lady would not love endless “it’s bigger on the inside” jokes. Ladies, what man could resist being asked to open up this call box and come inside.  I have been waiting a long time for freaky Dr. Who role-playing.  [FashionablyGeek]

If card games and random death of the unnamed are you thing, check out the Redshirt Card Game –  ‘To boldly eliminate your crew like no captain has done before!’ Yep, that’s the goal, pick your team and get them killed off as fast as possible for the win! [NerdApproved]

This Psylocke is considerable less Asian than in the comics, but what she lacks in far east features, she makes up for body (and Photoshop skills) [GeeksAreSexy]

This $150 crazy-ass Street Fighter 25th Anniversary set seems a bit much really. You get every Street Fighter game, ever. You also are treated to exclusive video, an 11 disk soundtrack, Light-up Ryu Statue, 64-page Hardcover Art Book… wait, is that Ryu’s belt? AND a certificate of authenticity? Capcom, you’re spoiling us.  [Albotas]

While I am uncertain as to the safety concerns associated with a ‘full face hoodie’ I am willing to take the risk to be a little more like R2D2. Made by Mad Engine, they should retail for around $70. Small price to pay really for being the droid someone is looking for, right? Not your style? They are also releasing Storm Trooper, Darth Vader, Boba Fett and Chewbacca designs [Geekologie]

Quantum Conundrum preview, the post Portal game from the guy that made Portal. It’s a first-person puzzle platform game that utilizes time like Portal used physics. You know, cause we like that. [Giant Bomb]

So, Battleship tanked at the box office… Never fear, the TETRIS movie trailer is here!  [aggregate]

“The Rains of Castamere,” House Lannister’s favorite revenge ballad from A Song of Ice and Fire, comes to life courtesy of indie rockers The National. Let that be the song that starts your weekend! [toplessrobot.]
