This is by far the best fan made, stop motion video I've ever seen. Very cool!

Very good work. Hasbro could take some lessons from this guy. But it is scary to think how much time some people have on their hands.

I was coming here to post this but looks like I got scooped. This is amazing and it makes me so happy that I have Hercules on my shelf. He is amazing. This vid could turn even the sternest Hercules doubter.

Just wow! :shock:

I'd love to see how this guy did some of the shots, especially the in air shots. I work at a college in the school of Tech and Design, and while I'm primarily in the technology side, I work closely with several design instructors. This does have the feel of a design project for a class.

We have a green screen. Watching a "how-to" of this guy might give me some great ideas for shots in front of the green screen...

Good work to whoever made it! Make sure to add it to your reel.

on the other hand? hating? what should he be doing? posting non-stop on message boards as more valuable time usage?

Gotta say... I haven't been a fan of Herc's style from the get-go... but this video definitely gives him some MAJOR swagger. Maybe it's just the posing or whatever... but he looks better here than any photos I've seen...

Fantastic video. Probably the best stop motion I've ever seen. The frame rates were incredible. That being said, it didn't sway me on Hercules. I still think Giant's the better 3rd party Devastator. I'll be a fan of it, through and through.

Weapon: Indepentently Targetable Particle Beam Cannons
Stop motion frame rate: Win
Falcon Punch Poses used before arms assemble: Win x2
Use of actual soundtrack fight music: EPIC
Use of actual soundtrack soundbyte: EPIC x2

The only way this gets any more AWESOME would be for Herc to battle a space unicorn that shoots double rainbows.

Check my first post. I gave him credit where credit is due. I even said Hasbro could take lessons from him.

A post on this thread takes 2 minutes. His work takes weeks or longer. You do the math. And I cant really say what he should be doing because I dont know what else he does or doesnt do with his time. He could be a hard working individual with a wife and kids who spends only a couple hours a week on this side project. Or he could be someone who locks himself in the basement for weeks with his toys. Who knows ???

Love or hate my comments, Im just keeping it real. I speak my mind.

Wow, really sterling work. Considering the huge amount of work that went into this though, I would have thought more about the surroundings - a sand-coloured 'construction site' backdrop would have looked much better. But this is still way better than anything I could do :)

Agreed. This is nice, no doubt, but the first one was amazing. Sometimes redos aren't worth the hassle.
