Original Transformers Cartoon Opening Recreated In Stop Motion With Toys

April 9, 2018

This is the original Transformers cartoon opening recreated in stop motion with toys over the course of eight months of free time by Youtuber The Lazy Eyebrow Reviewer and Optimus Timelord. They did a great job. So great I was inspired to do the same thing EXCEPT EVEN BETTER before I looked up the price of vintage Transformer toys on eBay and decided this version was already perfect.

Keep going for this video, as well as a compilation of other scenes they recreated with stop motion.

Thanks to carey, who informed me her first love was Tygra from ThunderCats. I'm not sure what I'm supposed to do with that information, but it's valuable nonetheless.

    Don't see Ironhide anywhere for obvious reasons. That transformer in toy form was a absolute abomination.

  • GeneralDisorder

    I missed out on Transformers as a kid (didn't have cable until 1992 or so). I tried watching it on some streaming service and man, I have never been so disinterested (except with my most recent girlfriend...)

  • Meh

    And yet it loses something.

  • Doog

    Roll Out!

  • TheQiwiMan

    My studio was pitching a Transformers game to Hasbro a few years ago. In preparation the whole Art team had to binge watch the entire old-school library of cartoons. Despite creating two promising, fully-playable prototypes, we never got the contract.

    So much suffering. So little reward.

  • Doog

    Lemme get a working copy of those prototypes!

  • TheQiwiMan

    Wish I still had access to them. They were for the Wii, so you'd need a Wii Dev Kit along with the software.

  • Eric Ord

    ...oh, the kids kind of toys.


    Thank god...
