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 nerdybits@nerdbastards.com.

Above: Of all the fan redesigns of the Dark Knight and company, by far my favorite is Denis Medri’s rockabilly, 1950’s spin. Seen here brought to life by Cosplayer Cherry Valance and friends. Check out more photos, including Nightwing,over at Fashionably Geek.


And what have you done with your free time lately? Bet you haven’t carved an amazingly huge model of a Super Star Destroyer, have you? If you had, then you’d be deviantArtist The White Tiger who created this mammoth model out of styrene along with some 3-D. [Nerd Approved]


Yup… So, this is a real thing you can purchase. One full body, latex Stormtrooper gimp suit, coming up! See more of LATEXKITTIE‘s creations on her deviantArt page. [Obvious Winner]


And now for something completely different: an adorable three year old Darth Vader princess – complete with Tie-fighter fairy wings! [Neatorama]

Pete Holme’s Ex Men are back, this time with Xavier giving Gambit the pink slip. [Dorkly]

On the latest edition of Serious Jibber Jabber, Conan O’Brien sits down with Mel Brooks, and you should watch it. Why? Because it’s Mel  fuckin’  Brooks, show some respect! That’s why! [Team Coco]

George Takei appeared on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live after-show and proceeded to read – out loud – some steamy Sulu/Chekov fanfiction. What? What more do you need to know? Go. Watch. [Topless Robot]
