Adam Savage's One Day Builds: Han Solo's DL-44 Blaster

Adam has constructed a Blade Runner pistol and Indiana Jones' revolver, but not Han Solo's blaster from Star Wars A New Hope. Fortunately, the makers at the Replica Prop Forum have thoroughly researched the details of this prop and have faithfully recreated the components needed to build it. Adam and Norm run through the blaster's signature details and then work together to assemble this iconic space gun.

Adam Savage's New $30 Blade Runner Blaster

Adam shows us his newest Blade Runner blaster replica--and one that only costs $30. This model by Elfin Knights is actually a water pistol, and an impressively modeled one at that! Replica prop builders and cosplayers have already started modifying this toy to give it some heft and realistic paint finishes. And of course, Adam has to test its water blasting capability!

Adam Savage's One Day Builds: Snub-Nosed Blade Runner Blasters!

Adam puts together a beautiful Blade Runner-inspired snub-nosed blaster kit! Both Norm and Adam both work on their kits, each taking a different approach to the paint and finish. Adam goes one step further by adding machined metal parts to his blaster, giving it a brilliant look and some real heft. The blasters turned out amazing!

Adam Savage's One Day Builds: Luke's Lightsaber!

Time to make a laser sword hilt! Adam takes a cylinder of aluminum stock and walks us through how he machined his first replica of Luke's lightsaber from Return of the Jedi. In the spirit of revisiting his early propmaking efforts, Adam only uses one found photo for reference and explains how to extrapolate details from an image to usable measurements for propmaking. It's a build that goes through some unexpected turns, and ends up being a different One Day Build journey than Adam intended!

Adam Savage's Very First Lightsaber Prop Replica!

In his journey recreating his favorite film props, Adam has made many lightsabers. But this machined replica of Luke's lightsaber was Adam's first foray into prop replication using reference photos he took of the original. He made this in Jamie's shop over 25 years ago after seeing the prop in a touring Star Wars exhibition. And even though it is far from a perfect replica, it holds up as capturing the essence of the prop and the gratifying experience of making the prop his own.

Adam Savage's One Day Builds: Chewbacca and C-3PO!

It's no secret that Adam's a big fan of Chewbacca. So for his newest cosplay build, Adam revamps his Chewie costume to carry an animatronic threepio, as depicted in The Empire Strikes Back. It's going to require a bit of disassembly, engineering, and problem-solving to turn two costumes into one that's still wearable!

Adam Savage Explains the Universal Greeblie!

Whether you call them greeblies, greebles, or nurnies, these small plastic pieces are an essential part of modelmaking kit-bashing. For an upcoming One Day Build, Adam shows off the universal greeblie and talks about how this piece was extensively used in the ILM model shop. It's something you can't unsee when looking at classic scale models from our favorite films!
