Adam Savage’s One Day Builds: Baby Yoda Mod and Repaint!

Adam is smitten by Sideshow Collectible’s life-size replica of The Child (aka Baby Yoda), and makes the figure even more awesome by modifying it to add posable arms and applying more weathering to the cloak! Follow along this deconstruction of collectible manufacturing and paint application. This project also allows Adam to test Iwata’s dual action airbrush, which has been highly recommended in the effects shops we’ve visited!
