'Action Movie Kid' Is Back For Volume 2, Thanks To Dad's Animation Skills

Thanks to Daniel Hashimoto's very particular set of skills, his son, James, has a toy box that's a little different than other kids'.

Sure there's the standard fare of Legos and coloring books, but dig a little deeper and you're sure to find surprises like a fully functioning light saber, the gun from Portal, and -- what's this? -- oh, just a rocket-powered toy car.

None of these are real, of course. Hashimoto is an animator at Dreamworks who uses his knowledge to make James' best little-kid dreams come to life in special effects-laden home videos.

WATCH James star in "Action Movie Kid, Volume 2," above.
