Welcome to a very special edition of Nerdy Bits. Normally, this daily feature is a collection of various nerdy goodies from around the web – cool stuff that has slipped through the cracks or aren’t quite substantial enough on their own. Since the nerd world is transfixed on San Diego Comic Con this week (Brace yourself, it’s all you’ll be hearing about for the next few days), we thought it befitting to allocate this column to all the swag and other neat con items that might otherwise be overlooked. Nerdy Bits will return as usual next Monday. Until then, enjoy this Nerdy Bits – Comic Con Edition, with more to follow.

ABOVE: Hot Toys Back to the Future 1/6th scale figure is coming. It’s about time (no pun intended) BTTF is getting the upscale figure treatment. It was its density, er I mean, destiny. In any case, your wallet is sure to say “Whoa Doc, this is heavy”. [Hot Toys] (more…)

Nerdy Bits: The Vader Mobile, Geeky Old People Calendar, Grillin’ With The Force, Voluptuous Green Lantern Cosplay, And MOAR!!!

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 nerdybits@nerdbastards.com.

ABOVE: Hot Wheels turned a C5 Corvette into this ode to the Sith for this year’s Comic-Con. Vader, huh? I saw Batman (heck, I even saw Darkwing Duck) before I saw The Dark Lord of the Sith. In any case, he isn’t the hero we need, but the overlord we deserve. [Gizmodo] (more…)

Obviously when you release the schedule for the first half of a con, you’re going to release the schedule for the second half sooner rather than later. To wit, San Diego Comic Con has now fully disclosed the goings on of their 2014 edition, and the weekend line-up promises the bulk of the con’s big movie panels and some of the TV shows it didn’t have time to get to one Friday. So what’s in store? Read on to find out. (more…)

ABOVE:  Ten of the actors who were rotoscoped for the first three Mortal Kombat games came together last weekend at the Galloping Ghost Arcade in Brookfield, Illinois, to hang out with some fans. Impossible! I saw Sub-Zero get his head ripped off twenty years ago, and yet there he is, alive and well. I don’t understand! All things considered, they’ve aged pretty well (except for Johnny Cage, guy to the far right) and look like they can still very much kick some ass. [Kotaku (more…)

ABOVE: Super7‘s SDCC-exclusive Alien Egg Chamber Playset. Is the girl on the box ecstatic or horrified? Boy looks to either be reveling in her disgust/misery, or is mid tear himself. Seriously, this is a f*cked thing to be letting kids play with. Did the photographer have them blindfolded, slipped in the playset, uncovered their eyes and snapped camera to capture their scarred for life looks? That’s some sinister sh*t.
