New York Comic Con gave us an early look at the upcoming 1/8 scale Ghostbusters Ecto-1 model kit from Eaglemoss. We take a close look at the details of this scaled replica and learn how the pieces will arrive in this weekly build up. The interior details and working lights are pretty impressive!
One of Adam's favorite cosplay costumes gets revamped and upgraded with an awesome animatronic feature! No-Face transforms into a hungry beast with a massive mechanized mouth, a build which ends up being much more complicated that planned. Shop assistants Jen and Mel also take on the task of fabricating foam props for No-Face to eat. This cosplay build ended up being quite a journey!
Fans of Godzilla films may know about X-Plus, the Japanese toy company that has long produced immaculate recreations of the king of Kaiju and his fellow man-in-suit monsters. We meet up with the company at New York Comic Con to chat about their approach to vinyl figure design, attention to detail, and the of obsessive world of Godzilla fandom.
Adam's new No-Face costume has arrived at New York Comic Con and it's time for an incognito walk through the show floor! We tag along to see how the crowd reacts to this transformation of the iconic Spirited Away character, and the gasps do not disappoint. No-Face is hungry!
Adam Savage reveals his latest cosplay: a rebuild and upgrade of his No-Face costume, featuring an incredible new mechanized mouth! Adam walks us through the design of this costume and how he puppets it from within. No-Face is hungry! Did you find Adam wearing this at New York Comic Con?
We meet Andrew Clement, the founder of Creative Character Engineering, an effects and fabrication shop that's worked on films like Deadpool and shows like The Boys. Andrew chats with us about how his team collaborates with costume designers and makeup departments to create memorable effects, and how his company integrates new technology into their processes.
Adam is joined by fabricator Kayte Sabicer for the build of his Star-Lord cosplay! Leading up to Silicon Valley Comic Con, Adam and Kayte tackle the various parts of the costume, from the iconic helmet to sci-fi blasters and all the hard and soft parts in between. It's long build that goes down to the wire!
Norm suits up in a set of black Bear Corps armor from The Great Wall to show the similarities and differences between the various Great Wall Nameless Order armors that are up for auction right now at Prop Store. Like Adam's Tiger Corps armor, this costume is comfortable to wear, is packed full of convincing sculptural detail, and is wonderfully painted and weathered. Perfect for wearing at the next convention!
Adam's latest prop build is a replica of Star-Lord's Walkman from Guardians of the Galaxy! This is a styrene scratch build using some of Adam's favorite modelmaking materials and techniques. And a few firsts for a One Day Build--the use of a vinyl cutter for the logos, as well as a minor injury mid-build!
The latest armor in Adam's costume collection comes from the 2016 fantasy epic The Great Wall! Director Zhang Yimou's ambitious action film featured striking armor designs for its color-coded regiments, and Adam dons the golden armor of the Tiger Corps. This and over 180 other suits of armor and now up for auction for collectors and cosplayers! Find more of this armor and other film props at the Great Wall auction here!
While Adam Savage was visiting the National Air and Space Museum's Udvar-Hazy Center, this familiar object caught his eye. Made by many of his old friends at Industrial Light and Magic, the Mother Ship from Close Encounters hosts a number of in-jokes, including an R2-D2 and a U.S. mailbox. See why Adam calls this model one of the "masterpieces of practical special effects."
Adam dances through the floor of this year's Silicon Valley Comic Con as Star-Lord! From the boots to the blasters, there's a story about the origins of each piece that makes up this awesome cosplay. And staying incognito among the crowd proved challenging! Stay tuned for build videos about the making of this costume!
