Optimus Prime Takes on Menasor in This Action Packed Stop Motion Fan Video

The counter656 YouTube channel has posted another amazing Transformers stop motion short using nothing but toys, time, patience, and a bit of VFX wizardry. The action-centric short focuses on a battle between Optimus Prime and Menasor, and it’s more intense than any Autobot v Decepticon brawl you’ve seen in a Michael Bay film.

Considering it was filmed using the stop motion technique it’s amazing how fast and smooth the action sequences are. It really does look like the toys have come to life and are battling it out for playroom supremacy.

Head on up above to see what 2o days of production time and 3000 images can get you if you’re a creative filmmaking genius.
