Video: Despite being made of plastic, Nerf's dart blasters look incredibly realistic and detailed — as long as you can ignore their garishly bright colours. Adam Savage apparently could not, however, so he spent an entire day giving the Nerf Longstrike CS-6 a fantastic facelift to make it look like a prop from of a sci-fi blockbuster.

No one at Peter Jackson's Weta Workshop does anything in halves. Ever. Even former Mythbuster Adam Savage was near-speechless after a recent visit to the studio to meet sculptor Johnny Fraser-Allen and the enormous project he's undertaken: building a room-sized, fully sculpted replica of the Labyrinth board game we saw last year.
Former Mythbusters' star Adam Savage is a self-described "superfan" of The Expanse, Syfy's critically acclaimed sci-fi spectacle. As the show gets ready for season 2, Savage himself hosted a 20-minute expansive look into the space opera, which is available to watch for free online. If you haven't watched any of the show, this will definitely help you catch up.
Video: Before he started busting myths, Adam Savage worked in the special effects industry building props and models for films. His love of iconic film artefacts is reflected in some of the recent builds he's shared online, but it's also fun to just watch him geek out over Peter Jackson's amazing film prop collection.
Video: The Fifth Element is one of those movies you can't help but watch all the way through whenever it's on TV. There are just too many wonderful moments to miss, but clearly Adam Savage's favourite was the reveal of the Zorg ZF-1 blaster. Why else would he spend over 10 years building a replica of his own?
Admit it: you've looked longingly at Captain Kirk's bulky but oddly attractive leather chair and thought "yes, I need that in my life." It's ok. We all have. Even Adam Savage. Especially Adam Savage.
