Stop-Motion Gundam Animation

Over at the forums, R.Leonhardt just shared with us two fantastic stop-motion videos of his collection in action.

One more vid after the cut:

What’s interesting is his creative use of simple materials for the special effects. For the beams, he used beam saber/Javelin/Tomahawk/Trans-am sword parts, while the shockwaves and explosions were done using transparent wire and crumpled paper.

He says he has another vid in the works, so watch out for that one.
