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.

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:

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 Kaiju Cometh, Kickstaring a Series of Gigantic Proportions

Wednesday, 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!

 

Crafty Collab: Beware of the Kaiju Paper Toys Part 5 – MechaGodzilla

Wednesday, January 4th, 2012

Hello Everyone, before anything else, I’d like to wish all of you a Happy New Year!  I know it’s about 3 to 4 days late, but hey, better late than never, right?

I do hope everyone had a great time during the recent holidays.  I know I did, as I basically “vegged out” as much as I could to get some much-deserved R&R.   It’s time to get back on track.  Let’s start the year with something BIG, shall we?

Introducing MechaGodzilla!

" Uhm, excuse me, is this the way to the toilet? "

Yep, that’s right, he’s the latest from Shaun Breedlove’s Kaiju collection.  Check out his cool copy below – just a little something to accompany his great pictures, template, aaand the special kaiju-with-city art piece above ( WOOT WOOT!!! ).  Many, many, many thanks to Shaun for coming up with another great Kaiju paper toy!

” What’s the best way to fight a giant monster?  Build a giant robot version of that giant monster, of course!  I mean, this is kinda common sense here, people.  Not to mention, you get brownie points if you build it out of a metal that doesn’t really exist. (i.e. space titanium…  it’s titanium, from space!  Which makes it way better than ordinary titanium now, doesn’t it?)  And now you can build your own MechGodzilla.  This one’s the Showa Version.

" RARR! Check out my Space Titanium Claws! "

" I feel like there's something on my back... "

As before, you can find more info about MZ here.  For more Kaiju stuff, go here.

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.

Crafty Collab: Beware of the Kaiju Paper Toys Part 3 – Anguirus!

Thursday, August 4th, 2011

Heads up folks!  This one is a BEAST!!!

Anguirus, is the third Kaiju from the ongoing monster series by Shaun Breedlove.  Here’s more info from the paper toy monster master himself:

” Here’s a shout out to the tooth and claw kaiju. Tooth and claw meaning that Anguirus is one of the few kaiju that lacks any ranged attacks (i.e. beams, fireballs, lasers, really nasty stink-bombs, etc.).  But he still packs a ferocious wallop.  Especially with all those spikes.. yikes!  He’s actually the first monster that Godzilla ever fought.  But they seemed to have resolved their differences since then because through the rest of the showa era he and Goji are really the best of friends, helping each other overcome several foes. 🙂 “

That's right! Godzilla is a bud of mine, don't mess with me!

RAWR!

Very cool and very nice!  I like the evolved shape of the template as well as the shell and tail detail.

Check out the earlier Kaiju paper toys here.

Crafty Collab: Beware of the Kaiju Paper Toys Part 1

Monday, June 20th, 2011

This one is from our friend Shaun Breedlove, who just started work on a series of Kaiju paper toys using a customized version of the contender template.  Now I’m not that familiar with Kaiju so let’s see what Google has to say about it…

According to Wikipedia, Kaiju is Japanese for “Strange Beast”, translated usually in English as “Monster”.  I can totally see why – have you ever heard of Godzilla?  Y’know, big guy, with scales, has terrorized cities in both Japan and the US, if memory serves (I doubt it), there was even a movie where Godzilla and KingKong made a wrestling ring out of New York.

I’ll be releasing Shaun’s Kaiju templates on the site, first up is Gyaos.

I am Kaiju, here me ROAR!

For reference, below is some information on this Kaiju from both Shaun and Wikipedia:

”  Gyaos is the name of several daikaiju from Daiei’s Gamera film series, introduced in their 1967 production Gamera vs. Gyaos and one of Gamera’s most famous opponents. It is the only Gamera foe to appear in the Showa, Heisei, and Millennium Gamera films.

Gyaos resembles a giant cross between a pterosaur and a bat, with a flattened, arrow-shaped head, leathery wings with three claws on each, taloned feet, and a fish-like tail. It has dull blue (or red) skin in most incarnations. The Gyaos in Gamera: Guardian of the Universe had a more streamlined appearance, with larger wings and a longer neck, as well as red eyes.  Gyaos can shoot a ray from it’s mouth made of concentrated sound waves as well as emit a chemical cloud from it’s abdomen that puts out flame.  ”

Nasty!
