I dare you to take a look at these photo’s from Avanaut‘s photostream on Flickr and not simply be amazed.

By using only LEGO Star Wars characters and a bit of ingenuity, he has created some amazing photo’s that really need to be seen to be believed.

Stormtrooper RIP

You just have to love fan art sometimes, don’t you?

Flickr user Shobrick created an image entitled Stormtrooper RIP that is simply amazing to look at. Not only does it perfectly capture a scene in which many of us have wondered (Do stormtroopers mourn their dead?), but also amazingly makes you feel sad for the grunts of the Star Wars Universe.

It is an amazing photo, and you should click below the jump to get a look at it.

From A To Z, The Geek Alphabet

abc_a

In March, we posted an alphabet that was just pure epic and just last week, we had Wolverine teaching us the ABCs. Now, from the fine folks from Geeks are Sexy (yes, geeks can be sexy), we get there take on the alphabet. From Star Trek to technology to video games and to TV, this alphabet will surely have something to put a smile on your face. Check out the whole alphabet after the jump. Hey, at this rate, just have your kids come to our site to learn their ABCs and more likely their English will be WAYS better than my ESL ass. (more…)

You Favorite Characters LEGO-Cubified

4185720891_5d4efe49d8Once again there are people out there with skills I can only dream of since probably the only “artistic” thing I can do is cos-play as either Choji from Naruto or Yajirobe from Dragon Ball (Haha, fat joke). CubeDudes has a Flickr stream that showcases some individuals awesome skills at making LEGO Cube-esque characters and people we love, such as the Spider-man & Amazing Friends one shown above. Check some more awesome characters that other people has made and guess who is who after the jump and also check out CubeDudes stream (heh) out for 300+ more awesome cubed characters. (more…)

Full-Scale Lego NES Cartridge

I’m fascinated when people build cool things with Legos. While I played with the tiny bricks and put together sets like Chewie on the AT-ST, I still didn’t have enough imagination to create items of brilliance from scratch.

That’s not the case for Flickr user Flynn2000, though. This person put together a full-sized Lego version of an NES cartridge. In the photo below, Flynn2000’s version is shown next to an original NES cartridge for scale. Pretty accurate.

Flynn 2000 has a lot of other really cool Lego creations, including the Ghostbusters’ headquarters and the Back to the Future Delorean, among others. Check out his Flickr stuff here.

Thanks to jeffisageek for posting this neato find.

Follow Us to the Nerdy Twitter Avatars!

This needs to be nerded up.

This needs to be nerded up.

When I wake up and realize that tweeting is happening at 5:30 a.m., I want to throw a shoe at the culprit… unless the culprit isn’t a bird, but a Twitter friend. And if the culprit is a nerdy Twitter friend, I want to throw a bunch of Mario’s gold coins at them because said friend is awesome.

Such is the case with our friends at NerdSalad, who pointed us to outstanding work of artist Adam Koford. Koford has shot that bland Twitter bird avatar with some weapon more dangerous than a BB gun and turned it into outlines of nerdy goodness. Want Wolverine to represent you? Have a soft spot for Link? How about… um… Nancy from that old comic strip? Koford has your back. Check these out.

Check out more of Koford’s work in his Flickr gallery. Are there any characters you think are missing?

By the way, follow us on Twitter @Nerdbastards! While you’re at it, follow our friends @NerdSalad, too!

Wonder® Woman by mleak

Wonder® Woman by mleak

When you’re snacking on PB&J made from unhealthy white bread, what do you start thinking about? If you’re a certain Flickr user, you apparently think about sculpting a pseudo-Amazonian princess.

mleak used 11 loaves of Wonder Bread to create her Wonder Woman (get it?), using the carbs for feet, hair and everything in between. In her Flickr gallery, she states that she originally made her creation in her own height, but nature had its way with Princess Diana and shrunk her a bit.

While I don’t see a resemblance to the Wonder Woman we know and love, I still think this is an awesomely creative project. If schools would get kids to do stuff like this instead of doing those hand-turkey things year after year, our world would be a lot more interesting.

Thanks to ComicsAlliance.com for the tip.

Picture of The Day: Chuck Norris Was Here

3826293875_3723bb23ba_o 

Ahhh Flickr how you amuse me. I stumbled upon this little gem this morning and thought it was the greatest thing. Some douche with a banged up car got  it tagged with a “Chuck Norris Was Here” along with a bootprint in the dent. I’m still not sure if Chuck Norris is actually reasponsible for this or if its the product of fan ingenuity but I have a feeling that alot of fans will be expressing their admiration to the legend this way.
