Caption Tuesdays! no. 35

May 22nd, 2012

And thus the saga continues, this time with a guest hero from a different universe, timeline, publishing house, and so on – you get the picture.

I often wondered what would happen if these guys duked it out, I’m sure you did too.  Maybe we’ll find out, right here.

So…. here it is folks!

Iron Man VS Batman Beyond!

Nick Fury from The Avengers Movie

May 21st, 2012

I am mighty glad a bunch of you asked for Fury.  This guy turned out to be cooler than what I was expecting.  I actually wrote him off the to do list, thinking he was going to end up as just one of the many characters with a weapons cache.  He did (now he’s my fave character with a weapons cache LOL), but if you add the trench coat to the mix, along with Mr Samuel L. Jackson’s attitude playing the role, it just works well, in a whole lot of different levels.

Say hello to my little friend 😉

To attach the coat, do it like how I did Red Hood’s jacket.  Note that you’ll have to roll up the edges of  the trench coat, similar to how I did Thor’s hair for that “flowing coat” effect, yes the sides and the back – tweezers are the perfect tool for this.   The arms are best connected to the coat, not the body.  You’ll need to snip off a bit from the section of the arm that you insert through the slits – you’ll know what I’m talking about when you get to that point.

I've got my eye on you...

As for the weapons cache, it includes the “standard issue” pistol, rifle, and stinger (from Solid Snake) that you normally see here at PTA.  I was too lazy to design a rocket launcher that looked similar to what Fury used in the movie, so I just borrowed Snake’s stinger template – worked like a charm.  Saved me tons of time too.

Sir, I'm gonna have to ask you to exit the donut!

The Villains Gallery Part 1

May 18th, 2012

Hi All!

I’ve been receiving requests for paper toys based on villains lately.  I think it’s about time I did so, since most of the toys I release are heroes, except maybe for Silver Samurai  and Bane.  I’m thinking of releasing a series of maybe 8 or 10 of the meanest, baddest, bad guys ever.  These guys should be veritable icons in their own right, beyond the usual bully or street thug.  That, plus they should be cool too.

That said, I’d like to know if any of you have any suggestions on which villains should be included in the list.  I’d appreciate it if you can send me links to references to the characters as well, just so I’m sure we’re talking about the same character 😉  Note that the list can accommodate characters from different universes, by universes, I mean comic book publishers, games, movies, etc,…

I’ve started with a list (in progress) below, I can still include or omit characters from it, depending on your comments.

  1. Loki – from Marvel’s “Avengers” movie
  2. Red Skull – from Marvel’s  “The First Avenger” movie
  3. The Joker – Heath Ledger’s of course!
  4. Doctor Doom?
  5. Darth Vader?

If you have any suggestions, do sound off in the comments section, or PM me through the contact thingy on the right.  And in case any of you say Thanos, I’d suggest to save him for when the Avengers 2 movie comes out 😉

Cheers!

Coming Soon: Nick Fury

May 17th, 2012

Hi All!

It seems there are a number of you who’d like a PTA version of Mr. Fury.   Since that is the case, I must oblige.  Many thanks to those of you who messaged me with the request.

Nick Fury, complete with eyepatch and mayhem...

The resulting template should have the usual guns and rifles, maybe a rocket launcher.  If time permits, I’ll prepare a trench coat too.

That’s it for now.  Cheers!

Caption Tuesdays! no. 34

May 15th, 2012

I recently discovered the wonderful world of 9gag (that and instagram – so add me up quick!  My username is papertoyadventures).  I also recently completed a number of Avengers-inspired paper toys which prompted me to take a bunch of pictures of the paper super heroes.  9gag as well as the unplanned photo shoot inspired me to reboot Caption Tuesdays.

As to why I even stopped posting those, I alone know… MWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Moving on, here now is the first Caption Tuesdays! post for the year.

Enter your cool caption for this image in the comments section below.

I did it a bit differently this time around.

Caption Away!

AVENGERS ASSEMBLED!

May 10th, 2012

Hi All!

Just sharing a pic of the assembled, Avengers paper toys!  As always, you can download the templates in the downloads section.

The Avengers, Assembled.

In case you missed the earlier posts for each of the characters, look no further, the links are right here:

I’m also announcing the return of Caption Tuesdays!  You can blame my taking lots of caption-able images while taking pictures of the Avengers team.  Watch out for it next week.

Cheers!

The HULK Paper Toy

May 8th, 2012

This one has got to be the fastest custom that I’ve ever completed.  I just recolored the Kratos Brute template with green and purple, then borrowed some graphic elements from Bruce Lee and Wolverine, and Voila!

Say CHEESE!

So which Banner do you prefer - Bana's, Norton's, or Ruffalo's?

Anyway, the big green guy is now available in the downloads section. We now have all the Avengers from the movie, excluding the Nick Fury that is.  Now if only we had a bunch of bad guys for them to beat up, hmmm…

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.

The BIG Guy, Coming Soon…

May 4th, 2012

Just a quick post.

HULK will be ready for download in a few days.

Don't make me angry, you wouldn't like me when I'm angry...

In case any of you are wondering.  I used the BRUTE template on this one.

Cheers!

Doubleshot – Hawkeye and Black Widow Paper Toy

May 1st, 2012

I guess its best to release “Hawk” and “Widow” at the same time.  Speaking of which, have you guys seen the Avengers movie yet, and did you enjoy it much?  I know I did.  I liked how they made the good guys duke it out in some of the segments.  I also liked how they injected a number of funny scenes – (SPOILER ALERT) Hulk’s “Loki-throwdown” was simply the BEST!  Tom Hiddleston’s face, post-throwdown, was hilarious.

Enough of that – less movie, more toys!

Black Widow: This is like Budapest all over again. Hawkeye: You remember Budapest very differently.

I used a modified version of my Red Arrow paper toy template.  Not much of a difference, I just switched their “handedness”.  For information on how to “assemble” the arms so that the toy holds the bow and arrow properly, go here.

Jeremy Renner, a.k.a. Clint Barton, a.k.a. Jason Bourne, a.k.a new Mission Impossible guy... this guy is taking over all the big movie trilogies!!!

As for the Black Widow, I actually tried designing a new template – a female version of the “Contender”.  The intent was to give her “bumpers”, but I eventually decided to just stick their graphic version.  My earlier prototypes were getting to be a bit complicated to assemble, so I thought of just keeping it simple.  I did include a hair addon though – many thanks to Carl Zeno Manalo for creating the lines and texture for that.

Natalia Romanova and "wig".

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.

Okay, so far we have:

That means the BIG guy is next!

Cheers!

Hawkeye, coming soon…

April 27th, 2012

Hello again!

I’m just about done with Hawkeye.  I’m using last year’s Red Arrow template but with some minor modifications.  This means Clint Barton, the paper toy, will have his very own bow, arrows, and a quiver.

Watch my movie! Coz I said so 😉

He should be ready for download in a couple of days.

I’m also preparing a paper toy for Black Widow (possibly using a new female contender template, currently in the prototype phase) and The Hulk (using the Brute template).  Nick Fury, I’m not sure, it would depend on the audience I guess.  So let’s have it – Would you guys want your very own “Contenderized” Nick Fury paper toy?  Let me know.

Cheers!
