Welcome to the first edition of Nerd Alert! We pride ourselves in giving you the very best there is to offer in movie and TV news, but every day we come across so many awesomely nerdy movie-related things that it's tough to justify an entire story. This is the reason why Nerd Alert was born, a treasure trove of tidbits for movie nerds just like you and me. So what do we have in store for you today? We have a full display of the entire first run of Star Wars toys, the very first Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles design, the epic 6 minute Supergirl trailer and much more. Sit back, relax and enjoy your very first Nerd Alert experience!
Entire First Run Star Wars Toy Collection
Every fan of the original Star Wars wishes they had, at the very least, kept all of their old Kenner toys from when they were growing up, since they can fetch a pretty penny these days. One collector in Germany has apparently amassed the entire first run of the original Star Wars toys and has put them all in the incredible case that you can see above. We have no word on who this man is, or how secure his house is...
Original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Figure
As any fans of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles surely know, the heroes in a half-shell were created by Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird in 1983. With the franchise more popular than ever, Mondo has taken it upon themselves to create an action figure based on the very first TMNT design. Fans can CLICK HERE to pre-order now, with the action figures expected to ship in the fourth quarter of 2015, just in time for Christmas.
Legend Custom Art T-Shirts
The folks at Fright Rags have debuted a new series of t-shirts based on the 1986 cult classic Legend, featuring a number of fantastic artistic renditions of the Lord of Darkness himself. Unfortunately, Tom Cruise's Jack is nowhere to be found on these shirts. CLICK HERE to pick up your very own Legend shirt.
The small screen is becoming jam-packed with superheroes, and now powerhouse network CBS is joining the fray with their Supergirl series, slated to debut on Monday nights this fall. The network released a massive six-minute trailer today that showed Melissa Benoist's Kara Zor-El take flight and transform from a mild-mannered personal assistant to a powerful superhero. The series will square off against Fox's Gotham when it debuts sometime this November, as DC fans will have to decide between the young Bruce Wayne or young Kara Zor-el.
Furious 7 With Realistic Stunts
Are you curious how some of the death-defying and logic-defying stunts of Furious 7 would actually happen in real life? Then look no further than this animated video from CollegeHumor, which breaks down all of the pivotal action set pieces, in a "realistic" fashion.
Everything Wrong With Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2
The folks at Cinema Sins have focused their efforts on the final Harry Potter installment for their latest Everything Wrong With video, which clocks in at just over 21 minutes, so I hope you have some time to kill before checking this out.
The Muppets Trailer!
If you haven't yet heard, The Muppets are coming back to the small screen with a new ABC series, filmed in the same mockumentary format as The Office. The show won't debut until this fall, but at least these lovable characters are back on the small screen where they belong.
Crimson Peak Trailers
Guillermo del Toro is the current reigning king geek director in Hollywood, and the first trailers for his new haunted house thriller Crimson Peak recently debuted. Hopefully this will be popular enough to get the director's long-gestating version of Lovecraft's At the Mountains of Madness off the ground, but we'll have to wait until October to find out.
Jem and the Holograms Trailer
1980s girl power is back! The cult classic animated series about an all-female rock group gets the big screen treatment with director Jon M. Chu's Jem and the Holograms. The obscure animated series still has a massive fan base, but we'll have to wait and see if the movie can transcend into the mainstream this fall when it hits theaters October 23.
