I’d Take This Fan Animation Over Transformers 4 Any Day

Using a modded Laser Optimus Prime and a set of Make Toys’s custom Constructicons, YouTube’s Harris Loureiro created a stop-motion action scene that’s far more appealing than anything Michael Bay could put on film.

Michael Bay had the Transformers for his movies over-designed to accent their alien nature and give them a more ‘realistic’ feel, which works for a lot of people. I accept that, but reject the idea that more cartoonish robots wouldn’t translate to film as well. Just look at this.

What Malaysian stop-motion animator Harris is using is a custom Make Toys Giant set, and the Make Toys Battle Tanker Add-On kit for what Japan calls Laser Optimus Prime and I call the recent reissue of Laser Prime, dammit.

Sadly the footage here is not complete. Harris lost some in a hard drive crash and had to sell the figures due to financial difficulties. If I had my way, companies would send him toys for the potential honour of possibly being included in one of his works.

  • That’s pretty fantastic. Calling next transformers movie to be done in the vein of The LEGO Movie, full stop motion using old early gen toys.

    Also on a side note, I bought Benny’s Spaceship Spaceship SPACESHIP and Emmet’s constructatron kit, just waiting for em to show up, I am going to work on making a devastator-esque form like voltron set out of the both of them, if it works I will show pics…and maybe buy more sets and add to the monstrosity! Think giant oversized shoulder mounted cannons using the cavalry set etc.

    • i like the way you think, but that movie would look like ass.
      look at G1 ratchet and ironhide toys – fricking abominations.

  • Thanks a lot mate, now I’m looking up $300+ Devastator kits online that I can’t afford.

  • sad that one guy with 2 toys and a few hundred dollars of camera equipment and computer software can make this yet Michael Bay millions of dollars and millions of man hours can’t make a movie that respects its source material.

    • Go easy, everyone, Michael Bay hasn’t even announced “Transformers v TMNT” yet!

  • Almost as shitty as the original cartoon.

    I can still respect the amount of effort he must have put into it though.
