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.
ABOVE: Here is the thing internet, I have always been disturbed by Krang. Even when I was a kid and he was just a cartoon character. Now, as an adult, I’m even more disturbed by this cosplay…. which, I guess means the costume is a success? [Geekologie]
Ever wanted to snuggle up with Harry and the gang? Ew, not like that. I said snuggle not snog! …. oh but maybe there’s a Tom Riddle pillow…. um…… right…. SO, now you can snuggle with your favorite Gryffindor with these adorbs pillows! [Nerdist]
Have an extra $60,500 laying around? If you do, then you can own this handmade X-Wing table. It might seem a little pricey but considering it took 6 months to build, it’s not too bad. [NerdApproved]
We all want to be like Jean-Luc Picard. Let’s face it, he’s the epitome of cool. Now you can own a replica of the Ressikan flute that he played in the episode “The Inner Light.” Owning it probably won’t make you as suave as Picard, but at least you can pretend. [Geek Alerts]
Hot Toys is showing off a bunch of their prototypes including Iron Man, Batman and Terminator. Head over to Geek Tyrant for more photos.
Even bounty hunters like to bake! [Her Universe]
It’s things like a Wookie made entirely out of seaweed that make life worth living. [technabob]
If you weren’t disturbed enough by the Krang cosplay, here’s a M.O.D.O.K marionette! Happy nightmares, kids!! [Obvious Winner]
I wasn’t on board with this Schwarzenegger dub of Darth Vader until I heard the line “Let’s play a game called Who Is My Daddy And What Does He Do.” [The Mary Sue]
