Crafty Collab: Beware of the Kaiju Paper Toys Part 6 – Mothra

Monday, September 10th, 2012

Following a Kaiju reboot from last week and a series from a while back, today I present to you the latest from Shaun Breedlove, otherwise known as PTA’s King of Kaiju.

This time around, he brings us Mothra, complete with larvae and moth versions.  As before, Shaun provided some notes on this paper toy:

”  Here’s to one of the only kaiju who’s been a good guy, err, girl, throughout her entire movie career. Everybody, hold on to your antennae… it’s Mothra! Sure, she may seem like just a big bug but she’s much MUCH more. She’s a big, magic, benevolent bug who loves the earth and all it’s people….. Yeah, I think only Toho co. ltd. could think that one up too. But just the same, that doesn’t mean she shouldn’t be on your shelf! She’ll also look very good on top of your printer as I’ve found out myself. So download your very own mothra today! She’s, yes I’m gonna say it, Moth-Tastic!!!  ”

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 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!
