    I just discovered this video a few days ago, of G1 Prime fighting G1 Bumblebee:



    Probably the best stop-mition quality I've ever seen. Seriously, this is Robot Chicken quality.

    This is how the Bay movie should have been done, anyone who disagrees is not a true fan™.

    ...and the part where Bumblebee scratches his "nuts" at the end was pretty damn funny.

    That's probably the most effort that's ever gone in to a kick-in-the-balls gag.

    DUDE. That is the BEST stop-motion I have ever seen! If I didn't know better, I'd think the toy came to life!

    Even better is that it had extra "acting." The director wasn't content just to have a fight scene, but he had little things like BB scratching his nuts at the end, and Prime matter-of-factly closing his chest door.

    The first part of this was the best stop motion I've ever seen TF wise...(the second half could have played out better)...but the beginning with the transformations was pretty badazz with cute little Bumblebee bouncing around...

    Wow... that's some REALLY NICE stop motion work. I love the way the opening shot looks like you're just seeing the toys being rolled along the floor... but then Prime's transformation starts while the truck is rolling... it's a great set-up. The animator has a really great sense of framing and composition. Nice.

    My only complaint is that the sound bites for Bumblebee's voicework sound pretty bad... though the Prime bites are great.

    Awfully twitchy in places, but still superbly done. Wonder how he did the midair-flip transformations?

    Holy shit, that.was.awesome! VERY fluid, and I loved the attention to the extra small details like Prime closing his hanging chest door thinger.

    Nice use of the Bricktop from Snatch sample too.

    Must have been done by a pro. The motion is so fluid. How'd they do that? The Bumblebee transformation is awesome. Is that the original voice of Prime? Sounds like it.

    The part where Prime had to fix his loose chest door made me laugh. I think we all can relate. The whole video was very funny, but I think the movements were a little overdone in places. It's like they're suffering from Parkinson's or something.
