Today audiences know Pixar Animation for delivering stunning feature length computer animated movies. But before they were able to complete the incredible feat that was Toy Story, they created computer animated shorts in the late 1980s.
One of their earliest shorts was Tin Toy, a predecessor to Toy Story in more ways than one, and one Pixar fan has given the main character in the film a building block makeover. Now Master builder and Flickr user Koen has recreated Tinny, a tin toy of a one-man band, in LEGO form, and it’s a very well-done version of the toy that captures the simplicity of the early animated short and brings him into the real world.

Over the last month they have had a PIXAR 25th Anniversary Celebration Show. After the jump you can find my favorite selections from the show. Too bad prints aren’t available for some of these gems.

For the video, NkMcDonalds pulled scenes from works spanning over decades — from ’80s shorts to this year’s Cars 2. If you like Pixar as much as I do, it’ll definitely make you smile and it might even make you tear up a little tiny bit. Watch it after the jump.

The new trailer for Toy Story 3 hit the web yesterday. If you haven’t watched it yet, watch it now here! As you probably know, I’m an obsessive Pixar fanatic and love finding all of the little easter eggs that the animators/designers hide in the films. In the past we’ve taken a look at the easter eggs in Pete Docter‘s Up, Andrew Stanton‘s WALL-E and Brad Bird‘s Ratatouille. So I thought we’d take a look at the new trailer and see what easter eggs we could find (with the help of director Lee Unkrich‘s tweets).
