Frank and Norm take on a new challenge in this week of painting! We both open up a new Star Wars Wampa figure and try our hand at giving it a new paint job. What does a Wampa need? More blood and gore in its mouth! (Follow along the rest of the week by joining the Tested Premium member community!)
With the Rancor figure primed, Franks gets to fleshing out some details and adding some drool to the beast. Norm continues work on Jabba, and both figures end up looking pretty good. But we’re not done yet! (Follow along the rest of the week by joining the Tested Premium member community!)
This week, we’re joined by effects artist Frank Ippolito as we learn how to get started with airbrushing, and try our hand at repainting some action figures! Frank schools us on basic airbrushing tools and techniques, and gets started repainting a Rancor figure. (Follow along the rest of the week by joining the Tested Premium member community!)
This week, we start off talking about jetpacks, Tomorrowland, and Adam’s new spacesuit. As promised, we also take some questions from listeners, and get some pretty good ones! To answer a question about the Mythbusters production, Adam goes into detail about what goes on in a typical day of filming the show. (The second podcast from our trip to Alcatraz will be up in a couple weeks. It’ll be worth the wait!)
The most impressive display we saw at this year’s BrickCon was easily this Mouse Guard tribute. We chat with LEGO artist Alice Finch, who worked with the group ArchLUG to construct this incredible multi-section diorama, which consists over over 150,000 LEGO bricks!
We were recently at BrickCon, the annual LEGO convention in Seattle, Washington. There, we met David Frank, whose massive diorama won the Best Medieval Castle at the show. We chat with David about his LEGO design style, architecture, and how he built this amazing piece.

Animator Marty Cooper visits Adam’s shop for another collaboration. For this trip, he brought some friends to the cave: puppy bubbles! This video was made for our recent live show, which featured Marty’s awesome animations. Check out Marty’s other work here.
