After a Long Hiatus, We Go Back Online to Finally Bring You ActionCraft Toy Box

May 10th, 2016

The past few months have been tough ones. Following our successful Kickstarter Campaign, we went straight to work on the mobile application we set out to build.

Fastforward to where we are today, Actioncraft Toy Box, the app that allows you to design and customize your own paper toy using the our very own (contender) template, is now on the app stores in soft launch. It has been for a couple of months now actually – we just gave our AWESOME KICKSTARTER BACKERS first dibs on the app itself since they were so nice to support us, hence the reason why I’m announcing this just now.

Meanwhile, the actioncraft dev team has been hard at work adding new features as well as a bunch of cool goodies into the app. You will see them soon enough, just as soon as we complete our Quality Assurance tests for the latest version. Once the app has been submitted to both Apple and Google app stores, I will let you know.

ACTB Version 2

The Superhero Update is Coming Soon…

What to expect in the upcoming build? Bug fixes, drawing features, stickers, textures, and a boatload of new toys to play with. Just a hint, expect to see a lot of toy designs of superheroes INSPIRED by  the slew of superhero movies we’ve been watching lately 😉

And to answer your questions – yes the app will be FREE, so you can have access to a lot of the app’s crafty goodness without having to spend for anything. However, we do have OPTIONAL advertisements that will help us earn some moolah so we can keep on churning out cool toys for you to play with – that’s right, us paper toy creators need to eat too.

Anyway, I’ll be posting more about the new superhero designs in the next few days so check back soon.


Titanic Attack on Titan Paper Toys from Austin Billingsley are Now Up!

August 25th, 2015


I just wanted to share some paper toy goodness from Austin Billingsley. He’s shared his paper toy design with us a while back – Venom and Joker to name a few, but this time around his work is based on the hottest manga/anime property at this time (unfortunately, it is also a series that I havnen’t had the pleasure of enjoying just yet LOL – soon, very soon…)

I am talking of course about Attack on Titan. If you’ve been living under a rock like me, you can go here to read up on it.

Anyway, what follows are some of the images Austin sent over for reference.

We Made It!!!

August 4th, 2015

That’s right.

ActionCraft Toy Box is officially funded.

Thanks to everyone who supported our Kickstarter campaign. We couldn’t have done it without you. You guys truly, truly rock our world.

Running a Kickstarter campaign can be a very hectic and stressful experience. I am just glad it was successful – no effort lost. Now begins the fun part, actually completing the project. So, watch out for updates.

Last Day! Back Us On Kickstarter Today!

August 2nd, 2015

Ladies and Gents,

Just a quick update on the ActionCraft Toy Box Kickstarter campaign. At the time of this writing, we’ve raised just under 95% of the funding goal. This means we just need that remaining 5% to make sure we have the funds to finish the development of the app.

By the time you read this, it will likely be the last day of the campaign, which means it will also be the last day (for all of you who haven’t done so) to back the campaign through a pledge.

Click here to get to the Kickstarter page:

The success of this project is in your hands. Let’s make this happen 😉



The Final Countdown…

July 25th, 2015


This is it folks, we’re at the last 10 days of the Kickstarter campaign to support the development of the ultra-cool, mega-crafty, app called ActionCraft Toy Box. Well, at the time of this writing, we have 10 days left, but by the time you receive this article, it would be the last 9 days.

In case you’ve been hiding under a rock the past few weeks and have no idea what I’m talking about, go here to catch up. And if you want more information about the Kickstarter campaing, go here!

At the time of this writing, we’ve already raised just over 75% of our funding goal. This means we still need to raise the remaining 25% of the $10k that we set as our funding goal in order to make this app a reality. As a reminder, It’s an all-or-nothing setup with Kickstarter. If we don’t reach or go beyond our funding goal before August 4, nothing happens. So if you really want this app in your hands, this is the time to rally and invite your friends and loved ones to support the campaign.

Too young to know who this guy is? Look up Captain Planet 😉

Let’s do this!

A Gentle Reminder from Yours Truly…

July 15th, 2015


As you know, we have a live Kickstarter campaign running at the momet. We organized the campaign to help us fund the completion of ActionCraft Toy Box, the app that lets you customize your own paper toy action figure.

At the time of this writing, we just passed the 30% mark of our US$10,000 funding goal. We have 20 more days to go before the campaign ends. As a reminder, Kickstarter is an all-or-nothing deal. It’s either we reach 100% of our funding goal or we don’t.

If you’ve enjoyed the toy designs that we’ve freely given away through this blog the past few years, or if you like the app we’re building, or if you’re just that generous, do consider supporting the campaign by pledging to fund our project.

For more information about the project, check out these links:


Come on guys, this is me telling you that we can’t do this without you. We need your support to get to 100 and beyond. Let’s make this happen!


Happy 4th of July People! PLUS an update…

July 4th, 2015

I spent a lot of time with friends and soon-to-be family in the US for the most part of June, and I wanted to wish all of them and all of you celebrating your independence this July 4 a very, very good one. I had a blast during my stay over there, thanks for hanging out with me.

The Avengers, assembling for Independence Day!

Also, since I’ve settled in a bit from the trip, I can finally share an update re the Kickstater launch party we ran last June 20. It was a great way to kickoff our fundraising campaign for our ActionCraft Toy Box application. If you have no clue about what I’m talking about, (shame of you) go here.

Anyway, the launch was a success. I was not expecting that much of a turnout at all.

Serious crafting in progress...

Silent, but steady...

It was fun and I’m looking forward to running more of these in the future.

That said, to all of you who appreciate our paper toys, I encourage you to support our Kickstarter project. Go here now and back us!

What are you waiting for?

ActionCraft Toy Box, The Kickstarter Launch Party!

June 17th, 2015

Before I forget, we’re having a launch party on the day the ActionCraft Toy Box Kickstarter Campaign goes live. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, go here for more info about the project, and here to know more about the new features we want to add to complete the app through Kickstarter.

Oh, and since you’re already jumping from page to page, might as well like our Facebook page here. Think of it as exercise 😉 Come on, skip to it!

Yes, it's time to party - paper toy style!

The launch will be held at the Adult Recreation Center located at 201 E Colorado St in Glendale on June 20, from 3 to 5pm. If you’re good at using Google Maps (I know I’m not), go here for directions.

Yes, it's called the Adult Recreation Center - stop laughing! The place is cool BTW.

If you’re in the area, do drop by. The event will be great for the kids. We’re going to have story telling, a paper toy workshop, and IF you ask nicely, we’ll let you try the latest prototype of ActionCraft Toy Box.

The prototype in action! That's the on/off button for viewing props in the editor!!!

If you’re interested to back us on Kickstarter, we can walk you through the process at the venue.

If you have decided that you’re going to back us because you like what we’re doing (and because you’re a good and loving person) it would be best to do so on the day of the launch itself – if we reach over 30% of our funding goal on the first day, it increases our chances of being prominently featured on Kickstarter, which increases our chances of reaching our target!

Last but not least, there will be PIZZA! The official food of #actioncrafters all over the world!

I apologize to all the artists in the audience for using Comic Sans XD

Seriously though, it’s a fun and creative way to spend 2 hours of your time with the kids, nephews, nieces, friends, and BFFs! Don’t forget to RSVP, we have limited slots!

See you there!
