In salute to the release of Captain America: The Winter Soldier  (a damn fine movie btw, be sure to read our review HERE), Nerd Bastards is hosting a ultimate fan pack giveaway extravaganza.

You take care of the first half and we got the rest covered. We have the gear to make you a terror to spies and saboteurs. We’re giving away a cosplay hoodie, a Cap shield replica, Battle Helmet, Collectible Action Figure, as well as an exclusive Captain America: The Winter Solider IMAX Poster (*see full information below).  That’s 5 items worth over $100. All courtesy of 80sTees.com  and Hasbro Toys. There’s so much red, white and blue here, you’ll think you’re Uncle Sam’s sock puppet. (more…)
