Work In Progress: Removable Body Armor

Wednesday, September 19th, 2012

Hey Guys!

Just sharing with you all what else is in the works behind the scenes.

Take note, these “articles of clothing” are all removable 😉  You can fit them on any of the previously released paper toys (as long as it uses the contender template of course) then transfer them to another as needed.

Tips ‘n Tricks: How To Assemble The Cape

Friday, June 15th, 2012

This is long overdue.

I’ve been meaning to write, for some time now, a series of visual, step-by-step, tutorials on how to assemble the paper toys released from this site, most especially for the Contender template.  As you know, the Contender has many different variations, and it is always helpful to have instructions handy.

That said, this then is the first installment.  I will also create a special section for tutorials for easy access.  That page should be up next week.

And now, the tutorial proper, which is very timely as a number of the next toy releases have capes.

STEP 1: Cut

STEP 3: Review

STEP 4: Position and attach to the neck




Custom: Kamen Rider

Friday, March 4th, 2011

The Contender – Kamen Rider style!

The very talented people of  Kamen Rider Art came up with this cool custom using the contender template.  I’m not that familiar with the  characters of the series but I’m definitely digging how they did this one.


I’m  luvin’ the accessories.  Check out those claws, it even has a ” folded ” and ” armed ” version.

Move over Wolverine!

They also designed a couple of other rider paper toys using the template.  One of them has cool wings.  I’ll post more pictures next time.

So, are you ready for some Kamen Rider paper toy action?  Go and download the template from their site.  The template will be downloadable from this site as well – just as soon as I finish preparing a special download page for it that is  😉

A big shout out to the Kamen Rider people!  Many thanks for creating the custom!
