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

ABOVE: This baby bat injured its wing, so the only answer was to become the hero Gotham deserved. [Dorkly


Hot Toys (Sideshow Collectibles) wants to beat your wallet senseless – teases Guardians of the Galaxy 1/6th scale figures. I have a confession, the Groot figure gives me wood.  [HallofComics]


Cool X-Men Blu-ray collection centerpiece that doesn’t exist in the marketplace but it should. I’d make it as a DIY project, but I don’t have Magneto’s powers, nor am I crafty enough. [NerdApproved]


Newest NECA retro video game style action figure is… Rocky? It’s in homage to the 1987 Master System Rocky game, but doesn’t match the in-game model much. In fact, it just looks like Rocky has fought and lost against his greatest foe… a really bad skin infection.   [ToplessRobot]

Mark Hamill performs famous Star Wars scene as The Joker and Luke Skywalker. Yep, this is pretty much the “Oh Wow” moment of the week.  [Cheezeburger]

20 facts about Star Wars you probably didn’t know. It’s a Buzzfeed list, so you know it’s not marketed towards nerds. Most Geeks/Nerds all these facts, but their good conversation starters for the inbetweeners and late bandwagon jumpers (you know, ’cause being a nerd is the “IN” thing now). [BuzzFeed]

The Mountain from Game of Thrones, Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson shows up for a three year old birthday party as the Incredible Hulk. I didn’t watch the video, but I can only assume he crushed the kids cake into a sugary mess.  [FashionablyGeek]

Move like Jabba (Maroon 5 Parody). I’m drawing a blank on this one. Personally, I’d rather see a “Jabba Likes Big Butts” parody. [BreakOriginals]
