While the flux-capacitor hasn’t been perfected, and we can’t help you fix any past holiday humbuggery, maybe we can help you get this holiday season off to a good start.
For the next 12 days (Dec 1st-12th), the staff of Nerd Bastards will be listing a few of their favorite nerdy things. Gadgets, doohickeys, thingamabobs and more – all sorts of items that have been Nerd tested and Bastard approved. Basically, stuff you want, things you need, and everything you can’t have.
We hope you’ll find some unique and nerdtastic gifts among our selections, and that they make their way under your tree, Menorah or Kwanzaa bush.
Hit the jump for Luke Gallagher’s list of Nerdful things. Check back tomorrow for Adam Donaldson’s list. To see archive of this feature, click HERE.

I’m a huge Game of Thrones fan-boy. One of my favorite characters is Daenerys Targaryen. She’s beautiful, bad-ass and has baby dragons… I plan to name my (eventual) kid after her. This 7-inch limited edition bust is the perfect center piece for the Khaleesi fans out there, and their household shrines to her. Price: $124.99 [Entertainment Earth]

Gamers know all to well the curse of nourishing the body for extended play-time. It’s simple math. No Sleep + No Food = No More Button Smashing. You want the maximum amount of play time with little interruption. While sleep is a cruel unavoidable mistress, food is another problem. Do you really want to get up and waste play time makin’ a hot pocket or bagel bites? While yummy, they’re big time wasters and messy. What you need is Gamer Grub, a tasty vitamin-infused, energy snack in a handy resealable pouch. They’re like candied trail-mix designed to keep your health meter up and keep your fingers and keyboard/controller grease and crumb free. It’s like the best thing to happen to gamers since Mountain Dew. Price: $2.99 [Gamergrub]

UD Replicas is a motorcycle outerwear company that makes functional super hero/scifi motorbike suits. They have replicas from The Dark Knight, Star War, Iron Man, Tron and more.
