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: The $5 cosplay challenge ends in hilariously awful costumes. With that kind of money, you either buy a $5 foot long, or live long enough to wear a trash bag and some paper plates and receive internet fame. What’s sad is there are people who don’t have a price cap that do worse. [Kotaku


Say Cheese! Epic Joker cosplay replicating the famous Killing Joke cover. [Mr.MisianosJokerEmporium]


Buffy the Vampire is back to slay you with her cuteness, with these FunkoPop Figurines. [NerdApproved]


Following the release of the Iron Patriot Maquette, Sideshow Collectibles has teamed up with Legacy Effects, the special FX masters behind every Iron Man film, to produce the ultimate screen-accurate representation of Stark’s Mark 42 armor featured in Iron Man 3. Whether you’re a fan of the mustard/ketchup colored suit, you have to admit this is a cool piece.  [SideshowCollectibles]

Peter Dinklage sung to the Game of Thrones theme. Now all we need is the Nikolaj Coster-Waldau version… just as soon as someone learns how to properly pronounce his name.   [Dorkly]

The Star Wars Battle of Hoth gets sweded and we’re all the better for it! [Technabob]

Just when we all thought we’d never see anymore of these great X-Men firing scenes from Pete Holmes after his show got canceled, he posts this wonderfully naughty video of Jean Grey getting fired. OH Professor X…behave! [WarmingGlow]

Jimmy Kimmel interviews Lena Headey Game of Thrones style. This is fantastically fun. Everyone should interview Headey in this manner. EVERYONE! [JimmyKimmelLive]
