It’s no secret that Adam Savage loves movies just as much if not more than he loves busting myths. Before he became the co-host of Mythbusters, he was known for working behind the scenes of movies, building props and scale models. Even in his spare time, he spends hours building things like a model of the shrubbery maze from The Shining, or takes years to craft the perfect prop replica of a certain gun from The Fifth Element.
But in a new video, it’s time for Adam Savage to stand back in awe of the props that others have created which are now part of a massive, impressive personal collection owned by Lord of the Rings filmmaker Peter Jackson. Savage had the opportunity to tour the prop collection earlier this year, but the video was just recently published online.
Take a tour through Peter Jackson’s movie prop collection after the jump.
If I had amassed the millions that Peter Jackson has over the years, this is exactly what I would be doing with my money as well. Sadly, we only get a small taste of this prop collection as 75% of this video from Tested features Savage and Jackson playing with the hero prop used for HAL 9000 in 2001: A Space Odyssey. But that’s pretty entertaining in itself. What I wouldn’t give for the opportunity to just walk through this collection and see what else is being stored here.
Adam Savage has his own awesome collection as well, and you can check that out right here.Cool Posts From Around the Web:
