Adam Savage's Tested: scratchbuilt/vacuformed spaceship
« on: June 17, 2015, 12:39:07 pm »
I'm going to add more Adam Savage videos to a common thread rather than posting them individually from now on: makes them easier to find.

This is a short vid about his modelmaking tool boxes that he made while at ILM. Unfortunately it doesn't go into a lot of detail since they're making the posters of the boxes available to "premium members" (i.e. ones who pay for extras). Still interesting though:

Adam Savage makes the ultimate Duck Bomb. If you're going to do something silly, do it properly....

Run out of steam I think. Adam's been saying things about getting too old for it on his podcasts for a while now, and Jamie has always preferred building things to talking about them on camera.

I'm going to miss them... although if I'm completely honest, I'll miss Kari the most... :wub: ;D

Kari, Tori and Grant have been out of it since last year anyway. A decision was made to cut the show back to just Adam and Jamie in order to go into more depth about fewer myths. That MIGHT have lead to declining ratings which have resulted in the cancellation, although I don't know for sure. From the interviews, I get the impression that Jamie and Adam didn't make the decision to cancel the show, rather it was presented to them and they didn't fight it.

Kari and Tori are doing something else called Thrill Factor on US TV, but I don't know much about it.

Mythbusters without Kari is like a pencil without lead - pointless.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

I had already heard that Jamie was not going to do the live shows after this year so that would have also been a deciding factor, but as people have been saying Jamie prefers to be behind the scenes rather than in front of the camera so it was really only a matter of time.

One-day build of a garage kit of the 'Bolt' from the Iron Giant animated movie:

Note the announcement at the end: they want to do more garage kit builds, so if you know of any you'd like to see, drop them a line (if you've not got a Youtube password, drop me a PM and I'll post a comment for you).

Adam and Norm build what-if snub-nosed versions of the Blade Runner Blaster from a garage kit: https://youtu.be/9XB4Be6TjHU

The end results are really nice, and while Adam's is, I think, the winner, I'd have been very happy to have produced Norm's myself. It's nice to see that Norm (who's basically a computer-guy) has been genuinely learning and developing his skills. :thumbsup:
