Mega Man vs. Starscream in Stop-Mo Deathmatch

Taiwanese filmmaker Counter656 created this awesome stop-motion animated film pitting video game hero Mega Man against booby traps, Gundam mechs, and Decepticon lieutenant Starscream. Given how little articulation some of those figures have, particularly Mega Man and Zero, this is excellently animated. Notice how expressive Mega Man’s face is and how natural his gestures are. Using action figure packaging backboards for walls and scenery was a clever move that gives the environment a nice MST3K feel. Good stuff all around.

    That was really impressive. Stop animation is one thing that will always impress me. That’s some meticulous work right there.
