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.

        Oh I know, but I still want to see it happen :P

    This is nine kinds of awesome.

    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.

    Man those are some rad toys.

    Movie was great too.
