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.

Mezco toy company will produce a line of toys based on the popular AMC series Breaking Bad. Because every kid wants to play with a meth making teacher who slips into villainy. Few details are available at this time but Mezco has said it will make Mez-Itz, action figures, bobbleheads, accessories, paperweights and plush items based on the show. [MTVGeek]
Lady Silver Surfer body paint cosplay by Freddie Nova. I’m reminded of the lyric from Chrome’s – Recoil “You dream of a girl with silver skin, you dream of a girl cooled and thinned…” [FashionablyGeek]
The ultimate BatmancChess set. The Batman symbol illuminates 50 LED lights around the clear playing surface, with Gotham City underneath and projecting a Bat-Signal into the sky. Awesome, right? At $795 bucks, however, only Bruce Wayne could afford it. [Tecnabob]
After years of mourning for the loss of the 80s and ever present nostalgia, it’s the kids of the 90s turn. [GAS]
Lance Ford is responsible for this perfect mashup of Blazing Saddles and Django Unchained. I’m now positive Christoph Waltz and Jamie Foxx’s characters are just Tarantino’s reimagining of Gene Wilder and Cleavon Little. [GeekTyrant]
The Nerdist channel and Jim Henson’s saltier muppets, the Miskreant Puppets present their twisted version of the 12 Days of Christmas. [ToplessRobot]
And here to celebrate the real reason for the season, a Mortal Kombat Christmas! [Dorkly]
