While catching up on the latest Adam Savage Tested YouTube videos, I came across a new one which covers two lost alien characters originally designed to be used on the holochess scene in A New Hope. Phil Tippet and Dennis Muren originally designed 10 dejarik aliens but only 8 could fit on the table. Thought lost to time, they have now been brought back to life in a way and are available via a Kickstarter tier from Phil Tippet’s Mad God project. Watch the Tested video to see how it was done.
Adam Savage (Mythbusters/Tested) adds a new prop replica to his collection: Kylo Ren’s helmet from Star Wars: The Force Awakens! This is actually Adam’s second Kylo Ren helmet–he has a modified Black Series Voice Changer helmet and now this high-end model by Prop Shop. We examine the prop to admire its fabrication and detail.
By now you have seen images of Adam Savage (Mythbusters) cosplaying at Admiral Ackbar for this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. Now you can watch and read just how he created (and perfected) this amazing disguise over at Tested.com. Also be sure to check out the video of him building Han’s infamous DL-44 blaster.
