Stop motion Street Fighter video puts the "Action" in "Action Figures"

Remember when you played with your toys as a kid? Imagine that, except now you have a really nice a camera, way cooler toys, and you really like Street Fighter. Taiwanese YouTube user "counter656" recently posted this amazing stop motion fight between Ken and Ryu, using some cool visual effects and some nice articulated figurines. Check it out:

We can't imagine how long it must have taken this guy to painstakingly piece together all these individual shots, but the result is damned impressive. We here at GR would like to think that when we all go home for the night, our desks full of action figures spring to life and stage exactly these kind of battles. But they probably don't. They just sit there, dead, lifeless, lumps of plastic.

Have a magical weekend everyone!

    Is Counter565 the same person who made that amazing FF7 stop motion fight? that blew me away, this is one is amazing as well. I wish I had the patience for stop motion animation :P

    Not enough spooning. Needs more homo-eroticism like the title screen for SSFIV.

    That is totally awesome with an extra helping of awesomesauce!

    Wow, this is better than playing the game. Love the war Ryu's leg twitching before he gets back up.

    Thankfully there are individuals out there with far more patience than the rest of us mere mortals and we all get to enjoy the fruits of their hard work.

    "really nice a camera"? So, not only does this guy have way cooler toys but he's also Mario? Whatever,this must have taken WAY more patience than I could ever muster. Stop anim always looks like the most frustrating job in the world-your mind racing with ideas but then the inertia of having to plan out every frame on paper/computer and then actually go through making the miniscule movements every shot! Pretty cool, though.

    Maybe someday, Robot Chicken will be made in Taiwan? Even if not,they should give the guy a job, anyway.

    Okay... the ending kinda sucked. I'm now full of cheese. But everything else was fantastic, and I'm SUPER impressed with his work. I hope he does more!

    his Final Fantasy one blows this away.
  • 510BrotherPanda - August 6, 2011 2:27 a.m.

    The pose quality and timing on this is pretty darn good! Good job, guy from Taiwan!
  • TheKey - August 6, 2011 2:02 a.m.

    Holy hell, that was epic!

    If GR tried to make a video like this it would be probably be everything on Brett's desk having an orgy, and I'd definitely watch that.

    Mighty Impressive!
  • TheDarkslyder - August 6, 2011 12:58 a.m.

    Holy hell that's amazing
