Nerdy Bits: ‘Game of Thrones’ Minifigs, Superhero Backpacks, Freakish ‘Last of Us’ Zombie Cosplay, Bats Singing The Batman Theme, 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.
Above: Artist Kira Kouture really knocks it out of the park with this Hawkgirl cosplay. You’d believe she stepped right from the comic! With photography by BGZ Studios, see more images, including a making of that killer mask, at Geek Tyrant.
OMG YES. These Game of Thrones LEGO figures need to happen. Like now. An official series will never be, faaaaaaaar too much sex and violence, but thanks to Etsy seller miniBIGS you can get some excellent figures, like these spot-on Tyrion and Jon Snow. [Kotaku]
Next con, have your cosplay serve a duel purpose. These superhero backpacks come with pop out costume pieces, like Batman’s cowl and wings and Wonder Woman’s, uhh, belt and shirt sleeve cuffs. Okay, the Wonder Woman one could use a redesign, but still, cute concept. Pre-order either Batman/Wonder Woman at Big Bad Toy Store. [Fashionably Geek]
I’m sorry, but prepare for nightmares. This zombie cosplay from The Last of Us, created by by JWBeyond, may actually make me a little sick. [Gamefreaks]
Last week was video game week on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, and Black Thought, a.k.a. Tariq Trotter of The Roots took it upon himself to write some rap lyrics for the Super Mario Bros. theme. Give a listen, and thank him. Unless you’re a big Luigi fan. [Comics Alliance]
The Batman theme song as sung by bats. It seems so obvious, right? [Nerd Approved]
A supercut of John Goodman losing his shit over his long and illustrious film career. Why? Why not? And as editor Jason Bailey explains, “Goodman is especially compelling when he’s blowing his top.” [Laughing Squid]
