The Trench Coats are Coming – Grifter

Wednesday, July 31st, 2013

Hey there kiddies!

So I just realized that Grifter is part of the DC Universe.  It dawned on me when I saw him in the new DCU movie – Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox.  This is the movie based on the comic book miniseries by Geoff Johns and Andy Kubert.   Grifter has a small part there – with speaking lines too LOL, just like everyone else I guess, since the movie focused more on Flash, but seeing Grifter in animated splendor was cool nonetheless.

If you haven’t seen the movie yet, I recommend that you do.

The Flashpoint Paradox - Go Watch It!!!

Grifter, the last of the “Trench Coats” ( for now at least ), is now ready to be downloaded.  Go on now, print, assemble, and enjoy.

The Trench Coats are Coming! – Gambit

Tuesday, July 16th, 2013

Hats off to all of you who cast their votes.

The order of the “coated” has been decided and this is how it looks like:

  • Gambit
  • Dante
  • Grifter

Looks like Gambit got the thumbs up for the number 1 spot.  Enjoy!

Pick a card, any card...

For those with a keen eye, this is how to make him hold the cards 😉

The Trench Coats are Coming! – Last Call

Saturday, July 13th, 2013

Alrighty then.

Before I finalize the release schedule of the toys, I want to do one final call for votes to decide which character template I should finish off first in order to release.  If you just tuned in and don’t know what I’m talking about, go here.

Last call for votes! What say you?

Let’s check out how the votes are coming along so far:

  • Dante with  15 votes
  • Gambit with 13 votes
  • Grifter with 6 votes
Votes were sourced from the comments section of the previous page as well as the through the contact form.  Looks like Dante is leading the pack and Mr. Remy Lebeau is a close second.  Poor Cole Cash is running a distant third.  Oh well.  I actually thought Gambit would be on top.  Go figure.
If any of you want to change the order of release, please sound off on the comments section below or the contact form to the right.  I’ll be releasing the character with the most votes early next week.
Also, it seems I left a few more series releases hanging.  Just like the trench coats.  I would like to hear from the audience ( Ahem! That means YOU ), which one’s you’d like me to prioritize.
The list looks like this:
I’ll likely hold off on this Spider-Men series until the next Spider-Man movie comes out.  It seems more appropriate that way.  If I remember correctly, a couple of Spidey’s bad boys are in the Villains Gallery anyway, so those dudes should be enough to whet the concerned appetites in the meantime.  UNLESS y’all want me to get those toys out sooner.
You have the power!!!
That’s it for now.
Cheers!

 

Crafty Collab: Beware of the Kaiju Paper Toys Part 8 – Gigan

Wednesday, July 10th, 2013

ALL YOUR PLANETS ARE BELONG TO US!

Just like last week, I’m putting you all in the right mood for the “Pacific Rim” movie.  Don’t get me wrong, they’re not paying me to post about the movie, it’s just that eversince I saw that Charles “Barkely VS Godzilla” commercial a while back (aaand I just “dated” myself right there), I’ve always looked forward to the possibility of a movie like PR LOL.

Don’t bother looking for it on youtube, I already looked it up for you – see below…

But enough of that… I’ll let Shaun tell you all about Gigan…

”  Gigan; the original robot chicken. But don’t let that pun fool you. Gigan (the showa version anyway) has definitely given Godzilla a run for his yen from time to time. Between flying around without wings, sawing things with a built-in rotary cutter at his alien masters’ commands, and squealing his little cyborg squeal, Gigan has become a favorite kaiju baddie of kaiju fans everywhere.

And now you can enjoy your own little paper Gigan complete with his own functioning rotary cutter! You probably won’t be able to saw buildings with it but there are probably a few papercraft buildings you could download somewhere. You might be able to make a few tears if you use enough paper for his saw.  “

Man this Kaiju paper toy really rocks!  Go check out that gif animation that Shaun prepared further down.

RARR!

Gigan in an emo pose 😉

Say CHEESE!

I SAW what I SAW, that's all I can say about it...

Check out. this cool gif animation from Shaun Breedlove

As always, many thanks to Shaun for sharing with us another one of his creations.

The template can be downloaded here.  You’ll find the template in the Kaiju section.  Subscribe to this blog to receive the password in the mail and gain access to the downloads section.  Registration is free, just enter your email address in the subscribe field at the right-hand side of the page header.

That’s it for now.

Cheers!

The Trench Coats are Coming!

Thursday, July 4th, 2013

So I’ve been going through my paper toy files from a while back and was immediately reminded of the many toy projects that I left hanging due to my hiatus (shame on me).  One of those projects was the Trench Coat series – simply put, a series of paper toys that feature characters wearing (GASP!) trench coats.

The Trench Coats are Coming Very Soon...

As you can see, the first batch includes Grifter, Dante, and Gambit.  That said, as I get back into the swing of things and eventually release these bad boys for all of you to download and enjoy, I would like to know in what order you want them to be released – this is because although I am back for the time being, I still have a lot of stuff on my plate regardless.  I still need to clean up the templates and would like to know which one to prioritize for release.

Which one should I release first?  

  • Grifter with trench coat and guns
  • Dante with trench coat, guns, and sword
  • Gambit wit trench coat, quarter staff, and cards

The release dates for these can vary by weeks or months, so if you really want a character to be released sooner than later, now is the time to vote and be heard.  PM me through the contact box on the right or just sound off in the comments section below.  Obviously, the character with the most votes gets released first 😉

That’s it for now, Cheers!

Crafty Collab: Beware of the Kaiju Paper Toys Part 7 – Baragon

Tuesday, July 2nd, 2013

WUSSUP  PEOPLE!

It seems I haven’t been able to post an article on the site the past few months.  I’ve been busy with a lot of stuff – it happens, oh well (SHRUGS).  Anyway, I’m back for the time being, so let’s get back into the swing of things – moving on to some serious paper toy business.

In anticipation of “Pacific Rim”, a movie that involves Kaiju and gigantic Mecha.  I’d like to open with a Kaiju post, to start of a series of posts since my hiatus.  The best way to do that is to show off another one of  Shaun Breedlove’s creations.

But first, let’s have a look at that “Pacific Rim” trailer 😉

And now, I present Baragon:

Kaiju Baragon Paper Toy Pic 2

Kaiju Baragon Paper Toy Pic 3

 

Pretty cool what Shaun did with that photo montage of his (Pic 1).  For the scales, Shaun says he designed it so that you have the option to either paste on individual plates on Baragons back for a more 3D effect (Pic 3), or just stick with the 2D version with the scales already drawn on the base template.

For more information about this Kaiju, go here.

The template can be downloaded here.  You’ll find the template in the Kaiju section.  Subscribe to this blog to receive the password in the mail and gain access to the downloads section.  Registration is free, just enter your email address in the subscribe field at the right-hand side of the page header.

That’s it for now.

Cheers!
