    That's very cool how you've changed between different decos of the same figure!
    Ladies and gentlemen, this is what the highest level of stop-motion looks like! Awesome bro :thumb

    Ractonite is still the best out of all of these imo. Not sure why but the movement in that one is just so buttery smooth

    A quick Back-To-Basics old school Transformation gif!

    DX9 Richthofen. I did this one mere days before FT announced their Powerglide! But I always liked DX9's and don't think he's worth replacing (also, any figure with 'Rich' in the name is automatically cool :cool: ).

    This one took more than the usual amount of Photoshop jiggery-pokery!

    Great job as always, it amazes me how well you blend 2 figures/alt modes together, the Origins Bee blends with MP Bee so well. Great job.

    I'm quite pleased with the result! :thumb 
    Thanks! When I was shooting the pics I wasn't sure it would work because apart from the chest area there wasn't much at all in common in the transformations, but when you get down to it the trick is to have a series of crossover frames where there are parts from both figures edited together but moving in a 'logical' way.
    I think my favourite part was realising I could use MP Bee's ankle doors as those odd wing things that are seen during the toon transformation...

    Hey everyone! Today I’d like to share with you the latest and final episode of the “VS Series”, where different versions of the same characters (or variations of them) battle it out! This is Starscream’s turn, voiced by the one and only JobbytheHong, with lots of other voices in the mix (@TFanPage101 for example).

    As I’ve been building up lore for more than three years, I hope you’ll still be able to enjoy it!



    If you have any questions or thoughts, I’ll be delighted to hear them:)

    I deeply appreciate being involved in any way, awesome and fluid animation with lively motions to what's being said as always

    @Lumaken that has to be the best ending I have ever watched. Your animation, storytelling, and imagination is absolutely top notch.

    The only question I have is was any Waspinators hurt in the filming of this episode? That part made me die of laughter and I have never seen any Beast Wars before.

    There is too much to say that is the best moment of this episode. The little homages you gave to all the different Transformers shows is brilliant.

    Thank you for sharing your creation with us. I love the last scene the most. It truly is a great moment to reflect as a collector.

    I am so glad you enjoyed it the way you did. Thank you!
    Seeing myself lost in the multitude of figures coming out, I tried to reflect on that and what “meaning” Transformers has in my life, given I’ll have been making videos for ten years next month.
    Thanks for watching ;)

    Ten years!! A perfect anniversary special for you in that case :thumb  Did you have all the 'meta' stuff planned out from the start? Really creative to see the Collector's Dilemma of upgrades/replacements played out in fiction. And the voices and audio in general were awesome (I'm lucky that I don't have to do much on that side of things with my videos :tongue: ).

    Bravo sir!

    I’m humbled, thank you!

    Thank you so, so much!
    I didn’t have that planned even remotely. The Optimus VS video really started as the most random thing ever, I just had a lot of time on my hands so I started filming it (didn’t even have a script for that).

    One direction I discarded was the “kill the original G1 Prime, everyone disappears” thing, which might have involved some time travel or something to fix it (at one point I was thinking of involving Diaclone).

    I had no idea of what or who could have been behind the fights (originally in the Ironhide video “the hand” was supposed to be organic, kinda like the Creator’s hand in Age of Extinction, but for time constraints it became a copy of BW Megatron’s hand), but the concept only started getting meta until writing the script for this episode.

    The writing process made me think about what was the meaning of all this, my hobby, my video-making passion, the fact that I was buying certain figures just for making this series, etc. That’s when the meta kicked in, and it all made sense.
