Watch: Adam Savage Tours Peter Jackson's Amazing Prop Collection
Want to geek out with Adam Savage and Peter Jackson? A video from Adam Savage's website Tested has debuted that involves Savage stepping inside of Peter Jackson's prop warehouse. Guillermo del Toro's massive collection has been in the news the most recently with his exhibition at LACMA, but Jackson has a collection of props and movie items that might rival that one. Savage and Jackson spend most of their time in this video examining the HAL 9000 faceplate from 2001, but there's other cool things hidden around. You can see one of the Ray Harryhausen skeletons from Jason and the Argonauts, and a Vogon from The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, too. Jackson says he collects things from films that inspired him as a kid.
Thanks to SlashFilm for the tip on this. Description from YouTube: "Earlier this year, Adam Savage visited Peter Jackson in his cave--his world-class collection of props, costumes, and cinema artifacts that inspired him as a young filmmaker and continue to inspire him. Adam and Peter examine a prop you may recognize: the faceplate for the HAL 9000 computer from 2001: A Space Odyssey." The video was shot and edited by Joey Fameli, with music by Jinglepunks.

If you want to see more movie items, Guillermo del Toro's "At Home With Monsters" is about to start touring.
