Due to his recent trip to Australia and hectic shooting schedule on MythBusters (which is set to debut new episodes in January under a slightly new format), it’s been a while since we got a new Tested video from Adam Savage. However, because Adam’s not one to drop off the internet’s radar completely, the infamous maker has released a brand new video showing off the latest prop addition to his San Francisco cave:
It’s hard to believe someone would ever be this excited about getting something from Keanu Reeves’ 47 Ronin, but there’s no arguing the craftsmanship of the armor is superb. As Savage is one valuing attention to detail, we can’t say his purchasing of this piece was a bad decision.
Prop Store is home to hundreds of movie items like this that can be purchased by anyone from collectors to cosplayers. Two of the auctions currently happening at the store feature items from Ron Howard’s Rush, and, perhaps even better, props from Guillermo del Toro’s monster vs robots blockbuster, Pacific Rim.
As we wait for the next Adam Savage video to hit the interwebs (here’s hoping for a new build tutorial), searching through the items at Prop Store will do plenty to satisfy our nerdy desires until such a time arrives. Now the real question is, can we buy Jamie Hyneman’s beret from there? That’s something we would pay some hard earned money to own.
What do you think of Adam’s latest acquisition? Let us know in the comments below.
