Adam Savage might not be on Mythbusters anymore, but you can still watch him on YouTube on Tested. On the latest episode of the series, Savage goes to practical effects shop Weta Workshop to check out the skeleton suit they made for the new Ghost in the Shell movie.

I honestly figured that the Major’s robot skeleton was done in CGI, but there’s a real prop version too, and it is awesome. It’s made from a mix of more than 300 interconnected, 3D-printed, laser-cut, and hand modeled components. Apparently, there’s a ballistic gel “skin” that can be layered over it as well, but we haven’t seen that yet.

Savage and Weta Workshop tech Jared Healy go through all of the ins and outs of the skeleton in the video below:

And if you didn’t watch them already, check out Adam’s videos of Ghost in the Shell’s thermoptic suit and some of the films other awesome props:

I saw the preview for the film before Logan and John Wick 2 and it looks pretty interesting. Sure, it’s taking lots of flack from fans of the anime it is based on, but it is hard to argue with a movie that puts Scarlett Johansson in a skin tight bodysuit.
