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. Every Wednesday and Saturday (mid week/end of week) 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.

What do LootCrate, NerdBlock and PowerUp Box all have in common? That’s right, they’re all Geek box subscription services (duh!). Apparently, getting a box full of nerdful goods on a monthly basis is all the rage these days. So it makes no surprise to see this trend has brought the big dogs out to play. Well, correction, make that only one big dog. And they’re a marvelous one. Literally… Marvel (as in the comics/studio) has come out with their own monthly box o’ goods, aptly named “Marvel’s Collector Corps“.

Nerd Bastards was fortunate to receive the 3rd months release of Marvel’s foray into the geek box subscription market. Does it live up to the Marvel namesake? What items lay enclosed? Head on past the jump as we unbox this sucka and tell you what’s what. (more…)

There’s an interesting new Indiegogo campaign for UMW (United Weapons Master) looking to raise $100,000 to fund further development of their Lorica suit of customized intelligent combat armor (Named after the Roman Legion armor). Currently the campaign has raised over $40,000 in 8 days. The plan is to create a whole new venue for martial and weapons artists to safely display their full contact fighting talents for fighting fans around the globe. As our favorite Starship Trooper media guy might ask: Would you like to know more? (more…)

A man named Josh Dunlap recently shared a heartwarming post to Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn’s Facebook. The subject of the post was his son, Sawyer, a four year old struggling with Dyspraxia, and the unlikely character that inspired the progressive strides Sawyer is making. Dyspraxia is a condition that affects one’s motor skills, including verbally forming speech, so it’s definitely interesting that after seeing Guardians of the Galaxy, Sawyer took in the most from the character that spoke the least: Groot.
