  1. What are the chances that this Vacuum Monster is the same Monster that chewed on your mouthparts in Season 2? 😛

  2. I was wondering if you ever have a model build go so wrong it just agrovated you to no ends? Also did the model end up getting finished /scrapped/ or put on the away and never seen again? Mine was the gundam 1/100 Astray Blue Frame. i i was about 85% done and the cat knocked it behind the desk landing it on the heater. The hole kit warped and i tired for a while to fix it but coudpnt even get it to look right. in the end the kit ended up getting torn apart for spare parts after seeing how far it could fly.

  3. Oooh, new background! You recorded a new set of answers. ^_^

    My earliest memories are just fragmented impressions, and some of them are clearly influenced by my family’s pictures and super-8 home movies from the time, which I saw later in life.

    My earliest coherent memory is of me laughing at a joke on The Muppet Show, where they call the fire department to deal with a fire in the theatre, and the phone earpiece starts spewing out water like a shower head. Another fine gag lost to the advance of technology, since phones don’t look like that anymore. Except in our iconography: ☎️☎☏

  4. I can remember two distinct things from before i was 5. Both of which involved a kitchen sink and my dad.

    First one was my dad breaking my plastic spoon that i got from my immunisations because he was trying to get our goldfish out of the insinkerator that turned out to be not as dead as he first thought.

    The second one, i went to dad’s shed with him, and distinctly remember him asking me to ‘not touch that’. ‘that’ happened to be a tube of glue, which sprayed in my eye when i tipped it over. Dad then held me under the tap flushing my eye out before taking me to the hospital.

  5. #Askadamsavage So Adam — we’ve heard you mention your shelf of unfinished projects in the cave on previous videos. What are the top 3 builds on your shelf that you have a burning desire to finish? Can you share them with us?

  6. I’m wondering how you know the question is coming from a premium member if it’s on Twitter 😛

    Not that it bothers me either way – I like these videos!

  7. #AskAdam

    What is your process after you have finished a project? Do you continue to research the project to improve it? Do you ever go back? I just finished a Luke Skywalker ESB Graflex Build that was off and on for about a year. I later found some better parts that I could use to make it even more accurate and I’m wondering if this ever happens to you?

  8. Hi Adam,
    I recently completed a personal project that I had been thinking about for a while but was a little intimidated by the sewing/soft goods skill needed to complete project as I had no prior experience. Do you have a project and/or skill you were hesitant to take on and how do you approach learning a new skill ?

  9. Hi Adam, you have done many Cons in the US do you or any of the Tested crew have any plans on coming to Australia for either Supanova or Ozcomic Con .

    Cheers Jedioz

  10. I help gather these questions, and I keep track of where each comes from! And if a question comes from social media, when the answer is live I reach out to that person to ask if they have premium or not; if they don’t, we share the answer.
