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.


Whats a Sith apprentice to do when some blue guy pushes him around and takes his light saber? Get another sabre and get some rage fueled justice after school. Ok, it’s really not an afterschool special. It’s more the story of:

“To wreak vengeance, the apprentice Jedi Maul passes the dark side. He then confronts his master, the Sith Vowrawn and obtained by force it’s legendary lightsaber.”

I had an interesting thought after watching this though. Have you ever noticed that in Star Wars there is a direct corelation to a character’s level of “Bas-Assery” to the amount of hair, or more correctly lack there of.

Star Wars Characters that I would consider a Bad-Ass:

Darth Vadar – no hair under that mask, Bad Ass.

Yoda – few whispy strands, Bad Ass.

Mace Windu – Bald and Bad Ass.

Darth Maul – Bald, Horned – Bad Ass.

Now I’m sure there will be many of you fellow NerdBastards that will cry out:

“What about __________!?!?!”  

“You left out ________, Full head of hair there!?!?!?!”

To those NerdBastards I say, “Put down your torches and pitchforks, it’s a SLIDING SCALE. Your favorite character is still a Bad Ass . . . just not as Bad Ass as these guys.” 

NerdBastards high five to Dante & GeeCee and their fantastic effort in putting this together. Well done.



German LEGO builder David Wagner  created this awesomely impressive LEGO sculpture capturing a classic scene from Star Wars Episode IV. David built the Death Star Docking scene that shows the Millennium Falcon parked on Docking Bay 327. He even included the fight between Obi-Wan and Darth Vader in the corridor. 

The detailed LEGO sculpture measures 90cm x 100cm, and required roughly 10,500 bricks, four months, and 1,000 € to complete it. Complete with LED lighting this piece of LEGO art would look great in any fans home.
