These days, the world may feel like the equivalent of finding a lump of coal in your stocking, but there are still plenty of reasons to feel holly and jolly. Case in point: your old pals at Nerdist News! Each and every weekday, we try to do our part to spread joy to the world, goodwill towards man, and explore the latest and greatest in all of nerd-dom. So, with the holidays right around the corner, we’re doing something very special in lieu of a traditional WTFridays episode.
Today, we are proud to present our annual Nerdist News Christmas Special! Join Jessica Chobot and friends both new and old as we celebrate the holidays in style. Who will live? Who will die? Will Jessica be naughty or nice? Tune in and find out!
BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE! That’s right, my little nerdlings — we couldn’t just send you off into the polar vortex without giving you a chance to leave with some sweet swag. Remember when we gave away a hyper-detailed, movie-quality Darth Vader costume from ANOVOS? Well, now we’ve got a ready-to-wear TIE Fighter Pilot costume that you can win!
That’s right — this costume, valued at $1,500, is replicated from artifacts at the Lucasfilm Archives and is so meticulously detailed that it even includes the environmental/airflow features built into the helmet so you can wear it for extended periods of time without accidentally Force choking yourself.
In order to win, simply tweet this post with the hashtag #MyJediName and you’re automatically entered! Simply click here or craft a tweet of your own. Just be sure to enter by midnight on Monday, January 5, 2015 because then this post will make like Alderaan and disappear. (Hopefully sans explosion.)
