It was also an overwhelming endeavour; it took director Kyle Roberts two months of rotoscoping and animating over 4000 pictures to get the perfect facsimile. Not to mention the 60 background images his collaborator, Nathan Poppe, had to draw from scratch.

The most impressive feat though? Tracking a Jubilee action figure in 2012. [Buzzfeed]
