The first video today is Toy Story. I know you're asking, "Toy Story? What's so great about that?" My reply is, "This is the entire Toy Story movie, re-created, shot-for-shot, with real toys." Enjoy! [geekologie]
Next on the list, we have a live action, Sonic the Hedgehog fan-film. And to add that extra little bit of awesome, they got Jaleel White to voice Sonic. [howtogeek]
This is a stop motion video, in Minecraft, that shows the building of a house. Trust me, it's WAY more amazing than it sounds. If you're any kind of fan of Minecraft, you can appreciate all the work that went into making this video. Even using creative mode, this still would have taken an extremely long time. [howtogeek]
Making a snowman is always a fun thing to do during the winter, but how about destroying them? Here are 10 ways to destroy a snowman... in slow motion. [youtube]
Even the most simple tasks, like clipping your fingernails, becomes over complicated in outer space. [youtube]
In the past, I posted a picture of the TARDIS from Doctor Who mashed up to look like the DeLoreon from Back to the Future. Well it seems someone took that concept and made a short animated video of it. Doctor Who in the world of Back to the Future. [howtogeek]
And to end out the awesome videos, I have a Buffy/Twilight video mashup. Buffy meets Edward. Edward stalks Buffy. Buffy kills Edward. Sounds good to me! [blastr]
This ends our awesome videos section of the Round-Up. BUT WAIT! I still have a few more links for you.
Duck Hunt 2. Need I say more? Get to shooting those ducks! Also, the dog isn't as annoying. In fact, he's pretty cool this time around. [howtogeek]
If you happen to be visiting China, you should check out their new bootlegged World of Warcraft theme park, called Joyland World. Seems legit. [geekologie]
Speaking of World of Warcraft, it looks as if WoW players have broken the fundraising record for hurricane Sandy relief. Who said gamers are lazy and don't care about real life stuff. [geekosystem]
So.... Myspace is back and all rebooted and everything. [geekosystem]
There's now a possibility that we could get a live-action star wars series on ABC. Ya know... with Disney owning Star Wars and all that... [blastr]

If you're a child of the 80's, like myself, then you grew up watching amazing cartoons like, The Transformers, David the Gnome, Count Duckula, Danger Mouse, Gummi Bears, Dragon's Lair, Duck Tales, G.I. Joe, Thundercats, and even Chuck Norris: Karate Kommandos. I could go on and on naming awesome 80's cartoons, however, there was one cartoon that shined at the top of my list of favorites, and that was Voltron: Defender of the Universe.
I've always wanted to see live-action versions of many of these cartoons, and quite a few of them have actually come to be made. Now whether you liked these live-action movie versions, or not, is a different story, but that's up to you and your personal opinions, which may or may not be wrong.
A guy by the name of Alex Albrecht has directed a very well made, short, live-action Voltron film. This 3 minute video is another example of the kind of amazing movies that could be made if more independent directors could get the funding to create them, and get their movies out to the public. I would love to see this small concept turn into a full length feature film.
So now, I present to you... Voltron: The End

This. Gave me. Chills.
I've never felt so proud to be a gamer. This commercial is absolutely superb, and is more than just a commercial in my mind. This is a fantastic representation of not only the badassness of our video game heroes, but the badassness of us as gamers controlling them. They are the heroes, we are the heroes. *Raises glass* To video games!
