The Kaiju Cometh, Kickstaring a Series of Gigantic Proportions

September 5th, 2012

We’re going to mix it up a bit this month.

This September, we’re introducing a new paper toy series – err, more like making it “official”.  This one is from the very creative Kaiju crafter, Shaun Breedlove, the very same paper toy artist responsible for all the great Kaiju toys launched from this site.  I’ve seen his latest models and they totally blew me away.  Not only that, he’s got a boatload of other goodies to come.

For now, I’ll leave you with a teaser.

Recognize any of them? Gotta catch 'em all.

This series will coincide with the other 2 series that are currently running on the site (March of the Spider-Men and the Villain’s Gallery).  Later this year, I’ll likely add another series or two to the mix, just to keep everything fun and exciting 😉

That’s it for now.

Cheers!

 

Tips ‘n Tricks: How To Mechanical Appendages (Doc Oc, Iron Spider, Lizard, etc…)

September 3rd, 2012

Hi folks!

Yesterday, I wrote a post about the Iron Spider, the uber cool Crafty Collab by Ralph Rayenyson.  Not only did he design Iron Spidey, but he also sent over images for a step-by-step tutorial on how to assemble those cool spidey arms.  Many thanks go out to him yet again.

Note that this same tutorial can be used on a few more of Ralph’s customs.

How To Assemble Mechanical Appendages

Template: The Contender

STEP 1: Precut

STEP 2: Prefold.

STEP 3: Glue tabs.

STEP 4: Fold joints.

STEP 5: Almost there.

STEP 6: Glue them like this.

STEP 7: Voila!

That’s it.

Cheers!

Crafty Collab: March of the Spider-Men Part 6: The Iron Spider

September 2nd, 2012

Pop quiz hot shot!

What’s red, gold, and made of iron?

This month we’re starting off with a Crafty Collab from Ralph Rayenyson.  He’s been releasing a number of cool customs in the past months, his Iron Spider is one of them – also one of my faves from his collection!  Go check out his stuff here.   I’ll be featuring more of his designs right here on this blog in the next few weeks.

I absolutely love what he did with those waldoes (appendages).  For more information about what this super spidey suit does, go here.

I should be able to write a post about how to assemble the “waldoes” in the next few days.  Once it’s out, you should be able to find it in the Assembly Instructions page.

That’s it for now.

Crafty Collab: March of the Spider-Men Part 5: The Scarlet Spider

August 31st, 2012

Okay, just before the iron, red, and gold spider coming next week, I present to you a scarlet one – it turns out, this guy is actually an appropriate kicker for next week’s paper toy.

The Scarlet Spider is yet another awesome crafty collab from Alonso Baŭtista Viĵalobos.  Check out more of his stuff here.

The Clone Wars - Spidey style!

I’m not that familiar with the Scarlet Spider’s story, so I had to look him up.  Wikipedia says this costume was actually worn by at least 3 people – Ben Reilly was the  first (Peter Parker’s clone – which I’ll leave you to read up on, on your own), by some villain called Wade, a dude called Kaine, and Felicity Hardy (GASP!).  Apparently there is also a group called the Scarlet Spiders – and no, they’re not a rock band even if they sound like one.  Not bad for a spider costume 😉

Crafty Collab: March of the Spider-Men Part 4: Carnage

August 28th, 2012

Alright, one more Symbiote for now, then we’ll switch over to the heroes after.

This week, we’ve got another crafty creation from Chihuahua Mexico!  Alonso Baŭtista Viĵalobos’ contribution this week is CARNAGE!  For those of you who are just tuning in, Alonso is the same guy who gave us Black Spidey and Venom (contender version), and Phantom 2040.

Let's shake on that!

For more of Alonso’s customs on his blog, go check it out!

Methinks it’s way cool!  Luv those deadly appendages, don’t you?  Don’t leave home without ’em.

Guess who’s next.

August 23rd, 2012

Hey All!

We’ve got more super Spidey stuff from Austin Billingsley this week.

This time it’s the Symbiote from the Spider-Man 3 movie.  Confused of all the alien symbiotes running around this blog, don’t worry, I’ve got you covered.  Let Wikipedia shed some light into the darkness.

Austin has been “gifting” us with plenty of primo Spidey stuff.  Check out his version of Venom from last week.

Staring match.... I WIN!!!

Venom: Ready or not, here I come!

Thanks again to Austin for providing us with another one of his Spidey customs.
