Amazing Stop-Motion Retro Game Animations

Stop-Mo-Street-FightIsn't it amazing what the kids can do with cameras and stuff nowadays? Especially if they have the right toys to go with them... With a selection of retro game themed figures, RetroCollect looks at the art of stop-motion animation.

A YouTube user by the name of counter656 has, with the help of a Nikon D5100 and a stack of fancy action figures, made a big heap of - to be frank - amazing stop-motion animations based on all of your "favourite" games. Stuff like Street Fighter, Mega Man, Final Fantasy, you know. Also, lots of LEGO, Transformers, Star Wars and Gundam stuff.

Months of work is required for even simple Morph-like antics in the world of stop-motion, so to see stuff as action-packed as this is a bit of a treat for any would-be Harryhausens amongst you. Observe:

Street Fighter:

Final Fantasy VII:

Mega Man:

There's a blog too, naturally:

His real name is John Huang, and he is a genius.

That's way too cool. Seriously, I was thoroughly impressed. You can tell that takes some hardcore dedication. I hope those videos become extremely popular, they deserve it.
