Watch: Harris Loureiro's Excellent 'Transformers' Stop-Motion Short

More than meets the eye! Autobots wage their battle to destroy the evil forces of the Decepticons! The Transformers! Robots in disguise! In theaters now is Michael Bay's Transformers: Age of Extinction, and while it features the Dinobots and Mark Wahlberg, it also kind of sucks. Instead of wasting your money, we present this amateur fan-made short film for your viewing pleasure, featuring various action figures/toys used in a five minute stop-motion short called - Battle Tanker VS Giant. It's essentially an action-filled Transformers video in the style of the original, old school Transformers cartoons from the 80's, but made by one guy on his own from 2013 to 2014. It's quite impressive. Something fun to watch this long weekend.
Thanks to The Verge for the tip on this. From Harris's YouTube he explains: "I have done [sic] shooting the stopmotion on Sep 2013 and start the editing on May 2014. took me more then a month to do the editing with the special effects and the sound FX. Although some of the sound is not balance well. make sure you keep your speker at low volume for ear safety :p There are some scene that have been cut off. which is some of the scene is in my external hard drive that is already crash/damage/total lost/trash..all the file in it goes with it as well..so far as you see..this is all that's left. This video is dedicated to all Transformers G1 and 3P fans..hope you guys enjoy watching it." For more videos, follow Harrisloureiro on YouTube. Any better?
