Crafty Collab: Beware of the Kaiju Paper Toys Part 4 – Godzilla 1954

Monday, November 21st, 2011

Here he is folks!

Presenting the next big Kaiju from the Shaun Breedlove collection!

Godzilla (AKA Gojira), the King of the Monsters

I’d say this guys is the most famous Kaiju of them all.  Weighing in with a string of movies, cartoon series, and toys under his belt.  Go find out more about this bad boy here.

One more thing (before you download the template) – that mighty fine image by Shaun above is a photo manipulation of his paper toy along with a Fotomo designed by Kimio Itozaki – just giving credit where credit is due 😉 .  Very cool image methinks!  I hope to see more in the future.

Riddle Me This…

Wednesday, June 1st, 2011

Who wears a red mask, is an expert fighter, uses guns and sharp objects, talks a lot, but isn’t Deadpool?

Red Hood, the paper toy, is now available for download.  This one comes with his trademark knife and twin pistols of death.  This baby also comes with a jacket ( yet another PTA first! WooHoo!!! ).   It’s also compatible with the recently released bike.

Fear me! You know you want to.

As mentioned in an earlier post.  I’ve been watching a lot of DC OVAs recently.  So far, my favorite from their catalog of quality animation is ” Batman: Under the Red Hood “.  I highly recommend you to check it out if you haven’t yet.

Alright, enough of that, now let’s proceed to some assembly tips.  Specifically, assembly tips for the jacket.  As always, pre-fold and pre-cut as needed.  Then insert the arms where you usually place them on the template.

Prep it like this.

Insert the arms.

After the arms, attach the jacket onto the toy figure just like you would a normal jacket in real life – one arm after the other.  Yes, the arms go through the slits on the figure too.  The “collar” goes around the neck to help keep the jacket in place – it works similar to the cape used on Thor and Robin.

That’s it.

Hi Brucey... remember me?

Young Justice – Robin Paper Toy

Thursday, May 12th, 2011

Okay, it’s time to get back to the Young Justice run of paper toys.  This time around its the boy wonder.  I think this look is much better than the version from the Teen Titans cartoon, don’t you.  Red and black beats red and green every time ( in my book ).

This template includes battle staves and a cape.  You should know that there’s one other accessory for Robin still to come.  It should be ready next week – just ironing out the kinks.  Watch out for it.  I’ll upload a WIP post soon just to show how things are going.  😉

If you just tuned in and can’t seem to figure out how to assemble the cape.  Go check out my Thor post – that should give you some tips.

Nix the cape, change the texture, and you've got Nightwing! LOL

This image makes me think of doing a batman paper toy LOL

Teen Titans Go!

Young Justice – Red Arrow Paper Toy

Monday, May 2nd, 2011

The Red Arrow paper toy is now available!

This paper toy is based on the character from the Young Justice cartoon series.  It includes a bow, arrow, and a quiver.

As I’ve mentioned in an earlier post, I really like the series, which prompted me to make paper toys based on the characters.

Put your hands up where I can see 'em!

You can download the template here.  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.

I’ve included some tips on how to pose the toy with the archer paraphernalia below.

What to do with the bow...

and arrow... all set!

It’s best to prepare the bow and arrow first.  Do not apply glue inside the blow oval – you’ll need this “unglued” so you can insert the arrow into the ” bow slit “.  Yes, it’s sort of a cheat, but hey, it works! Just do it, you’ll thank me later.

Arrow Arm Slit

Use tweezers or something similar to widen the slit – just so it’s easier to insert the arrow later.

Arms to use for the different poses. Take your pick.

You can choose from 2 possible poses for the archer.  You will have to use 2 different sets of hands to do this.  Both sets use the the ” straight ” version of the right ( arrow ) arm.  The left ( bow ) arm is what’s different, as you can see.

This is how we FOLD it...

The technique here is to fold the wrists, just use the image above as a reference on how to how to fold them.

Pose 1

  • The arrow arm is folded at the wrist, inwards, towards the archer’s body ( when attached ).
  • The bow arm is NOT folded.

Pose 2

  • Just like pose 1, the arm is folded inwards at the wrist.
  • The bow arm’s wrist is folded outwards.

...and Voila!

The image above shows you how the poses should look like after you attach the arms.  Insert the fletching ( non-pointed tip of the arrow ) into the ” arrow arm ” slit after attaching both arms.

That’s it!
