Stop Animations - John Huang - Counter656 Productions

Today it's all about the toys and action figures! Prepare to smile big as artist and animator John  Huang aka Counter656 hailing from Taiwan takes us back in time with this fantastic stop-motion race. Featuring four impressive machines from our childhoods, this is a no holds barred, all out assault for the finish line that is one for the record books!

John also does some fantastic toy reviews in the same style that show off the flexibility and articulation of the figures as well as some other attributes in a quite amusing fashion like using a flip flop and a water bottle as size comparisons and then having the character blast them away with his weaponry!

Even though these are labeled as "Toy Reviews", each one is an entertaining little movie in itself with John really managing to incorporate a lot of humor into mostly silent films of action figures! This review of The Iron Patriot is a perfect example of his ability to put a smile on your face.

Lastly we have one of John's latest works which was done in collaboration with Bandai for the promotion of the Digimon game, All-Star Rumble which comes out on XBox 360 and PS3 tomorrow. This video took John twenty days of production and over 2,500 pictures! Thanks for the fantastic work John!
