Thor Paper Toy

Thursday, May 5th, 2011

Thor, the God of Thunder is now available for download.  I based the graphics on the movie, not the comic book.  This toy has a few modifications on the contender template as well as a couple of notable add-ons.

Watch my movie, OR ELSE!

The template for this version has 2 pages, one for the figure and the other for the accessories.  I tried putting them all in one page, but I just couldn’t make them fit.

Just like the movie, Thor, the paper toy, will have lots of hair ( on three areas of the head – the front and both sides ).  I think it brings the toy closer to the movie character, plus it gives it more depth.  Quick tip:  When you do the hair, I suggest you curl it up for effect.  Use tweezers, they’re your best friend.

And of course, there’s the hammer.  ‘Nuff said.

Lightning bolts and tornadoes not included.

This template also has a removable helmet and a cape.  The cape gave me tons of trouble.  I went through a number of prototypes just to get it to where it is now.  Similar to all the other accessories, you have the option to attach or reattach it from the figure.

I like how the cape turned out.

Fold the cape this way. To assemble, fit the tabs ( top part ) around the neck.

Sucker Punch Paper Toy – Baby Doll

Friday, March 25th, 2011

So… have you seen the movie yet?   I’ll try to watch it over the weekend.  I really do hope the story is good.  The visuals are definitely great.

Baby Doll is now available for download.  Note that I did some modifications to the ” Contender ” template.  This version has bangs, pigtails, and a smaller base ( supposedly to help simulate the short skirt ).

Bangs, pigtails, sword, guns,... Check!

I suggest to follow the glue order found in the template.  It will really help you put Baby Doll together.  You will need to add a step #Zero however, which is to glue something ” heavy ” ( like a coin ) at the back ( unprinted side ) of the area marked with a red circle (see image below).  Do that after pre-folding.  This is because if you dont, the toy will tip over due to the smaller base – I found that out the hard way.

One ring to make her stable

Coin sold separately. One is enough.

Note that you’ll need to snip off a part of the leg ( rear side ) to help make Baby Doll stand up.  The snips are a quick way to fix the issue – you’ll know what I mean when you’ve glued all the tabs.

A blond chick in a Japanese school girl outfit. Cool.

That’s all for now.  Enjoy the movie!

WIP: SuckerPunch Paper Toy – Baby Doll and then some…

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2011

I almost forgot about this movie – I just realized it’s going to be released soon.   So I thought:  Perfect excuse to make a Japanese Shool Girl Outfit paper toy!  LOL.  Seriously, I think it’s time I designed a female paper toy.  It’s only proper to be fair, right?  Equality and all that.

Quick info: The film is directed by Zack Snyder, the same guy who did 300 and Watchmen.  From the trailer, it looks like a cool movie, why?  Well, I think it’s got plenty of:

  • Pretty anime-ish action sequences ( that sequence with the giant Samurai is just awesome )
  • Pretty chicks ( the movie’s got plenty)
  • Pretty graphics ( Snyder’s trademark, natch! )
  • Pretty Jin-Roh-esque baddies ( Don’t know what I’m talking about?  Google it )
  • Pretty Airships, Biplanes, Steam Punk-ish vehicles
  • Pretty Post Apocalyptic feel ( WOW! Steam Punk and Post A! In one movie!?! )
  • That big mech of theirs is not so pretty ( my view ), but I like mechs so I’ll add it to this list anyway
  • Story?  We’ll see.  I do hope it delivers – something ” trippy ” I hope.

Back to the toy, this is what I have so far. I’ll be prototyping in the next few days.  This template will have new features not available in the usual contender template.  Watch out for it.

Nope, this is not my attempt to make a Britney Spears paper toy!

Now before you close this page and move on to a different website, I want you to check a couple of videos.  Don’t worry, they’re cool.  You’ll probably share it on Facebook or something, if you haven’t already.

First, watch the official SuckerPunch trailer here.

Next go check out this cool mashup by forensicator8.

Enjoy!
