Video: Stop-motion cutout Mega Man versus LEGO, pasta

I've spent half my life knelt in worship of the internet, but rarely does it bestow a gift so tailored to please me. This handmade video, woven from stop-motion cut-outs, found items, LEGO, and bound by a chiptune soundtrack, is not only hilarious and attractive, but serves to remind me how much I miss Mega Man. I was never that into the series after the first few, but I would always download the sprite rip packs that would show up and try to figure out how Capcom's artists could make simple sprites turn into lively cartoons.

Coincidentally, when I saw this first at Game Pipe Life, there was an ad for Sony's Little Big Planet off to the side, a game that renders the same literal textures as this stop motion video.

  1. The tune is Concrete Man’s stage music from Mega Man 9, which as it turns out is one of the best Mega Man games ever. Trust me, I have most of them.

  2. Holy freaking crap! That was silly, beautiful, and WTF!? all at the same time!

    On a side note, Mega Man 9 was amazing. It reminded me just how much I missed a challenging game that grabbed you by the cojones and never let up. 🙂

  3. I love the bizarre switch from gameplay into “Here’s some hands with controllers”… And then there is a mustard bottle with Megaman on it being used as a controller. WTF??
