Mythbusters' Adam Savage Working On A Really Big Gun For A Really Long Time

If you're Adam Savage, what do you do in your spare time? Why, make sci-fi gun replicas, of course. Here's a project he's been tinkering with for an impressive (or worrying, take your pick) thirteen years.

My only problem with this particular build? I can't think of The Fifth Element without thinking of Chris Tucker's annoying high-pitched character. Although I suppose if I had a really big gun… [Youtube via MAKE]

    That's fantastic, that gun was so ridiculous and epic so it's perfectly understandable wanting an accurate replica of it. 13 years o.0

    One of my favourite movies. My kids (who are now adults) have also seen it numerous times and we often find the term "Negative, I am a meat popsicle" being used to answer a question and also the occasional "Corbin Dallas Multipass" when using a credit card.

    I know, a bit lame but it's been a family joke for a long time.

      Lame? No. Awesome? Yes. Quotes from that movie are great...

      "Listen lady, I only speak two languages: English and bad English"
      "Chickaan good"
      And I especially like "Gimme tha cassssssssshhhhhhh!" :P

        In our house, "Gimme the cassshhh..." still get a weekly workout.

    Aknot: You asked for a case. We brought you a case.
    Zorg: A case with four stones in it! Not one or two or three but FOUR! FOUR STONES! W-What the hell am I supposed to do with an empty case?!
    Aknot: We are warriors, not merchants.
    Zorg: But you can still count!

    Gold. Still makes me laugh

    That was just brilliant. I love the level of obsession that he's had over it, and the desire to be as perfect as possible.

    It's also one of my favourite films, so many good moments. It's one of those movies that I can chuck on after a crap day and it will always pick me up. Like Ferris.

    +1 to everyone comment above. Love all of those quotes.

    Adam's made blue marking fluid famous! Now to get some...

    Man! I SAW that gun there when I was there last year and took a pic!

    Me and my mates at Beer 'O clock?

    - This beer is EM-TEE!
    - The opposite of full!

    I worry for when he finishes it.
    I've had long projects that you love, and finishing them is devastating.

    Multi pass.
