Nerdy Bits: Facehugger Corset, Latex Stormtrooper Dress, ATLAS & P-body in Liberty City, ‘Star Trek: TNG’ Goes Metal, 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.
Aren’t you a little too sexy for a stormtrooper? If that facehugger corset isn’t your thing then maybe you’d like a skin tight, latex stormtrooper dress. Sure to impress any member of the 501st. Order yours from Esty seller, ShhhCoutureLatex. (Fashionably Geek)
These lighsaber pool noodles would make any summer party about 40% cooler, guaranteed. Plus, they’re a fun craft project! Just follow Muddy Boots’ great online tutorial and you’ll be hacking off imaginary limbs in no time. (Laughing Squid)
What better way to watch Game of Thrones than with a pint of your favorite brew from these kick ass glasses. Available in the HBO Store, get the whole set for $70 and be prepared to fight over the Lannister one. (Geekologie)
From the same guy who gifted us the glorious video of R2-D2 wreaking havoc through Liberty City, comes another wonderful mod that this time puts Portal 2‘s ATLAS and P-body into Grand Theft Auto. Things really begin to pick up around the 1:00 minute mark. Enjoy. (Kotaku)
So sure, these Doctor Who action figures don’t actually sing – except for the Face of Boa, watch for his lip flaps! – but each character is perfectly matched to a lyric and singer from this star-studded charity version of Lou Reed’s “Perfect Day.” (Cheezburger)
Because you asked for it, well, maybe not out loud or even consciously, but it’s here anyway: a metal version of the Star Trek: The Next Generation theme with a little classic Trek at the end. Not better way to rock out this morning. Thanks to Angelo for the tip!
