Grant Imahara's AMAZING R2D2 replica came about after 10 ILM employees -- including Adam Savage and Fon Davis -- banded together in 2000 to build their very own R2 droids from scratch.
What's it like working on a fictional aircraft when you're used to the real thing?
Adam shows you how to take Hasbro's The Black Series Mandalorian helmet and make it look more like the prop used on the show.
How do you restore and conserve an artifact like the X-Wing, which is made of multiple materials (both flexible and inflexible) and wasn't built with permanence in mind?
While in DC in August, Adam stopped by one of his FAVORITE places: the National Air and Space Museum, and specifically its Restoration Hangar, where he checks out a screen-used X-wing.
