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

ABOVE: This is the bronze Smaug sculpture created by artist John Howe and WETA Workshop. Each one costs $4,900 and is a 3-D replica of the Smaug pictured on the 1991 paperback versions of The Hobbit. $5,000!? Even if it was forged from the tears of baby Benedict Cumberbatch, I wouldn’t pay that. [Geekologie


Jeff Chapman, on Deviantart  produced a spiffy Photoshop of what Gal Galdot might look like as Wonder Woman. Eh, I don’t know if that looks good to me or not. I feel on the negative side of ‘meh’. I still prefer this one [TheMarySue]


Benjamin Rice made this X-Wing lamp for SPIN London. What’s an X-Wing lighting construct doing at a urban bicycle show? Staying on target of course. [Technabob


1966 Batman costume t-shirts. They should really make 1966 Batman costume bottoms, else you want your batballs to be on display. At the least, a “Pow” or “Bang” censor sign should be paired with it to cover up.   [Geek Alerts]


How to Train Your Dragon cake by  Richard’s Cakes Now how to train people not to eat it, that’s the real challenge. [ThatsNerdalicious]


The Poison Ivy ‘Green with Envy’ premium format figure perfectly captures Gotham City’s most seductive siren! Available now, she’s a truly breathtaking addition to any growing Batman or DC Comics collection! FYI: Did you know there’s such a thing as people being sexually attracted to plants? It’s called phytophilia. In case you’re wondering, no I am not plantsexual (that’s what I’m calling it for now). [SideShowCollectibles]

Star Wars as you’ve never seen it before: with really terrible sound effects dubbed in. Eh…still better than Phantom Menace. [Laughing Squid]

Finger snapping Super Mario. My fingers hurt from watching this. What a neat but spectacularly useless talent. [Emil Axelsson]

Help out a fellow nerd! Check out this comic book web series and donate to their Kickstarter. A TATE’S comics employee unwittingly unleashes some of the most notorious supervillains into our reality. [KickStarter]
