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.

The 2015 North America Toy Fair is winding down, but as it slowly marches into the history books kids and toy collectors alike have a lot to look forward to.

We were fortunate enough to attend the event at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center — the massive hall which also hosts the annual New York Comic Con — and we were wowed by the sheer enormity of it all. (Superhero pet uniforms are the new Lego knockoffs, discuss). So just as we did last year, Nerd Bastards presents a look back at the best products, most notable happenings and general greatness/weirdness from Toy Fair. Let’s take a look:

TOY REVIEW: Star Wars Bomb Squad Clone Trooper: Ordnance Specialist by Sideshow Collectibles

While nerds worldwide eagerly await the initial thrust into a new series of live-action Star Wars films starting with Episode VII The Force Awakens, Disney/Lucasfilm are currently keeping fans amused with the new animated series Star Wars Rebels on Disney XD. Now that’s a fine show with a cast of likable characters and stories which turned out better than most fans ever gave credit it for. Fanboys who haven’t been won over by Rebels are still chewing sour grapes given that Star Wars: The Clone Wars got scrapped in favor of Rebels. Star Wars: The Clone Wars being a show, which, is arguably the best thing to have happened to Star Wars since Carrie Fischer donned that metal bikini.

Some of the best stories to come out of Star Wars: The Clone Wars dealt with Stormtroopers and their adventures during the Clone Wars. Those weren’t your father’s stormtroopers though, they were specialized troopers and very specific skill sets. You certainly didn’t want to get an angry call from one of those guys.

Our friends and Sideshow were kind enough to send Nerd Bastards one of their latest additions to the Storm Trooper infantry – the Bomb Squad Clone Trooper. If I said this review was explosive, I wouldn’t really be lying now would I? So let’s check out this orange armored centurion of the Republic and have a blast! (more…)

Don’t Like The Crossguard Lightsaber? That’s Just the Tip Of The Iceberg

The Internet, and a bunch of long time Star Wars fans, blew a gasket when the Crossguard Lightsaber made its debut in J.J. Abrams Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser trailer. Grown men wept and threw incredible three-year old style tantrums. I myself stamped my feet for a few minutes and held my breath. After I woke up from passing out mid-tantrum, I reconsidered the whole thing and decided to just go with it. It seems Hasbro has decided to just go with it as well and will be releasing a new line, Star Wars Bladebuilders, of lightsaber accessories that will allow folks to customize their lightsaber experience.
