In this week’s episode of One Day Builds, Adam is joined in the shop by special guest Aaron Douglas–Battlestar Galactica’s Chief Tyrol! While chatting about the show and sharing convention stories, Adam and Aaron work together to assemble and paint several BSG model kits. Who better to help build Cylons than the Chief himself!

At WonderCon, we meet up with Jackie Huang, an artist who sculpts with felt to create fantastic creatures. Jackie’s “Woolbuddies” take the form of everything from adorable owls to giant dragons and even an R2-D2 droid. We learn about the felting process and get a quick demo!
Adam, Will, and Norm share important lessons learned from their parents, things they wish they’d learned from their parents, and talk about Adam’s impending departure for the Behind the Myths Tour.
For this week’s Show and Tell, Norm shares a recent purchase: a relatively inexpensive Nixie tube clock that makes for a beautiful desk display. This clock makes use of Russian IN-14 cold cathode tubes paired with a simple control board with RGB LEDs for color accents. The only thing not included is a cheap 12V power supply you can easily get online.
And here we are–the final day in this week’s LEGO with Friends! Can Will, Norm, and special guest Veronica Belmont complete their three sets before the week is done?

We’ve seen plenty of Stormtrooper armor made by Star Wars fans, but replica props and armor are only as good as their source reference. For Star Wars, there’s a lot of interpretation of what’s authentic, because props from the film are lost or scattered in private collections. We chat with eFX Collectibles’ Bryan Ono about their new replica Stormtrooper armor, which is made from a newly discovered hero suit–only one of six from Episode IV–that even Lucasfilm doesn’t have!
