More Third Party
The latest work from harrisloureiro has just been posted to Youtube. This time the skilled stop motion animator presents a fight between Warpath, as played by Badcube's Wardog, and Astrotrain using DX9's Chigurh. We're always really happy to see new works from this producer, and this latest video certainly does not disappoint - except maybe that the video doesn't run longer! We have it embedded below, so click through and enjoy!
A video has been posted showing the process of upgrading Combiner Wars Devastator with parts from a testshot of the X2Toys add on. Interestingly while providing almost entire new forearms and hands, the kit still calls for the original wrist plates to be used with the new parts. Otherwise everything seems a simple matter of snapping pieces on during the combination process. The video was originally posted to the Miaopai service, but we've mirrored it to Youtube for easy viewing. Click through to watch!
A video was posted to Weibo by a user we haven't been able to identify just yet, showing a somewhat large figure based on Beast Wars Dinobot. Going by the way it's designed, we're assuming this is the work of an unofficial group, but right now any conclusion is complete speculation. The video is now mirrored to Youtube for easier viewing, and we've got it embedded below, so click through and take a look.

From the Youtube channel harrisloureiro who we've featured in the past comes another outstanding work of stop-motion toy animation. Transformers Generation features lots of Masterpieces and comparable third party figures in a 15 minute battle sequence that's unbelievably fluid and natural. Reportedly taking six months to complete production, this is worth every moment of your time to check out. Click through to see the embedded video - you'll be glad you did!
Radio Free Cybertron's diecast is still at Toy Fair in New York, and he's taken plenty of photos and video at the Play With This Too booth! We've got grayscale hardcopies on hand of Desolataur in both stills and video, and more. Keep reading to see it all!
