“No computers, no 3D printers. It’s completely made in the shed.” Tested recently visited the shop of model maker Glen English. A former professional motorcycle racer, Glen makes jaw-dropping motorcycle scale models almost entirely from scratch.

Blade Runner Universe: BtS With Adam

Watch Adam Savage from Tested speak in hushed tones and geek out as he takes us on a very informative tour of the set of 2048: Nowhere to Run, the prequel to the new blockbuster film (and one in which he was an extra). His enthusiasm is infectious.

The Spacesuits of FBFX

The Spacesuits of FBFX

Tested’s Adam Savage stopped by UK special effects costume house FBFX to check out some of the incredible spacesuits they’ve made for science fiction movies. The engineering, detail, and craftsmanship in each of these outfits is truly extraordinary.

Adam Savage’s Foam Doppelganger

Adam Savage’s Foam Doppelganger

While at UK effects and fabrication shop FBFX, Tested’s Adam Savage had the unique privilege of having his body 3D scanned, then replicated at life size using a 5-axis milling robot which carved his entire body from foam. We only wish they included footage of the robot at work.

Tested Builds the LEGO Saturn V

Tested Builds the LEGO Saturn V

Adam, Will and Norm got their hands on the awesome LEGO Ideas NASA Apollo Saturn V scale model rocket a bit earlier than us mere mortals. Watch them unbox, methodically knoll parts, and build the set. Assembly and story time start at 2:25.

Tested at Alien: Covenant’s Set

Tested at Alien: Covenant’s Set

Tested’s Adam Savage has been granted behind-the-scenes access to the set of Ridley Scott’s upcoming Alien: Covenant. In the first episode, he checks out the tunnel and cavern that serve as the Dreadnought’s interior, along with the imposing Space Jockey’s platform.

Adam Savage: Chewie & 3PO

Adam Savage: Chewie & 3PO

Adam Savage likes to go to conventions undercover. For Silicon Valley Comic Con, he dressed as Chewbacca, complete with an awesomely annoying C-3PO strapped to his back. We also learned that Chewie must go through an awful lot of hairspray.

Weta’s Ghost in the Shell Props

Weta’s Ghost in the Shell Props

Tested visited Weta Workshop to take a look at some of the props they made for the live action Ghost in the Shell movie. In particular, they showed off the Major’s thermoptic suit, as well as the masks and animatronics for the robot geisha.

Adam Savage’s Custom NERF Rifle

Adam Savage’s Custom NERF Rifle

Adam Savage joined Imgur’s 2016 Secret Santa and made a custom NERF sniper rifle as his gift. He went for a weathered sci-fi look and beefed up its firing mechanism. He kinda borked the magazine with paint, but overall he did a great job. Finished build at 29:08.

Building a Pedal-Powered Strandbeest

Building a Pedal-Powered Strandbeest

For his latest one-day build, Adam Savage and his Tested pals cheated a bit, spending a couple of days cutting, welding, and assembling a complicated walking machine inspired by the work of Theo Jansen. And you thought assembling IKEA furniture was tricky.

John Chambers’ CIA Make-up Kit

John Chambers’ CIA Make-up Kit

Director Peter Jackson showed Tested’s Adam Savage some cool CIA equipment from the ’60s – a disguise kit in a briefcase. It was made by the late make-up artist and prosthetics expert John Chambers, who’s known for his work on Planet of the Apes and Star Trek. And Argo.

Adam Savage Incognito: Totoro

Adam Savage Incognito: Totoro

As we already know, Adam Savage loves to dress up in complicated costumes and walk around conventions to see if he can avoid being identified. For NYCC 2016, he dressed as the delightfully rotund Totoro. We love how he squeezed through that doorway at 4:45.

Adam Savage Incognito 2016 Pt. 2

Aside from dressing up as The Revenant‘s bear, Adam Savage also toured the San Diego Comic-Con with Anovos’ officially licensed Kylo Ren costume, which apparently weighs 10lb excluding the helmet. It looks badass though, as a $3,100 costume should.

Adam Savage Incognito 2016

Every year, Adam Savage likes to walk the aisles of San Diego Comic-Con dressed in costume to see if he can people from recognizing him. This year, he decided to go with a look inspired by The Revenant, and dressed as a lifelike bear.

The Popcorn Machine

The Popcorn Machine

Inventor Simone Giertz teamed up with Adam Savage to build another one of her silly robotic contraptions – this time, she’s made a hat that automatically feeds her popcorn. They should include one of these as an option with the Oculus Rift.

Adam Savage Makes Hellboy’s Sword

Adam Savage Makes Hellboy’s Sword

Adam Savage made a life-size replica of one of the swords that Hellboy used in the comics. The 48″ sword is made of plywood, Bondo, carbon fiber tubes, aluminum tape, some spray paint and a plushie. You can skip to 26:37 for the finished sword and the post-credits time lapse.

Adam Savage’s Ultimate Duck Army

Adam Savage’s Ultimate Duck Army

He’s confirmed their existence, but Adam Savage isn’t done with the Squawkie Talkies aka duck army (which by the way are not ducks but albatross). He used 16 of the toys and a hand built restraint to unleash hell on Earth. Skip to 20:49 for the bomb.

The Duck Army Is Real!

The Duck Army Is Real!

While there were many doubters that the screams of The Duck Army were in some way faked, Mythbusters’ Adam Savage did what he does best, and proved that the horrifying wails are real. And they’re spectactular.

Hadfield & Savage as Astronauts

Hadfield & Savage as Astronauts

Adam Savage loves to attend the San Diego Comic-Con in full costume. This year he went as a 2001: A Space Odyssey astronaut with a very special guest: retired astronaut Chris Hadfield. Skip to 9:50 for their “spacewalk.”
