You can see some pretty amazing things from Adam Savage on the Tested YouTube channel, including a recent video showcasing a visit to the Weta Workshop in Wellington, New Zealand. There, he got a chance to see the Labyrinth model that designer/sculptor Johnny Fraser-Allen is making in conjunction with River Horse’s tabletop Labyrinth game. Fraser-Allen designed and sculpted much of the art in the game including the game pieces, which are featured in their larger forms during Savage’s interview video.

Check it out below:

In the video, creator Johnny Fraser-Allan revealed the mammoth, from Jareth and Sarah to Ludo and Sir Didymus, though the elaborate sculpts of Hoggle’s Gate, the Hedgemaze, Junk City, and of course, the Bog of Eternal Stench. Fraser-Allen was actually commissioned by River Horse Games to create the sculpts for the official Labyrinth board game. But he didn’t stop there — what was originally a side project has transformed into an “obsession”.

Savage is no stranger to crafting copies of artifacts from famous movies, with his own recreation of the hedge maze from The Shining accompanying the traveling Stanley Kubrick exhibition.

The official description on the Tested YouTube page reads:

On a visit to effects studio Weta Workshop, Adam Savage meets and chats with artists who bring their own obsessions and passion projects to work. Sculptor Johnny Fraser-Allen, who is working on miniatures for Jim Henson’s Labyrinth board game, shares with Adam his own intricate maze miniature, which will end up being the size of an entire room!
