Papercraft Friday #100: Gatchaman God Phoenix

August 27, 2010

Woo Hoo!  We made it to Papercraft Friday #100!  And I mean “we” because as much as I love papercraft, I doubt I would have consistently blogged about it week after week if I hadn’t got such great interest and response from everyone.  So what did I choose for #100?  It had to be the God Phoenix from Science Ninja Team Gatchaman.  Possibly more well known in the U.S. as just the Phoenix in the Americanized and heavily edited Battle of the Planets, which featured that added little robot that fans now love to hate.  So when Studio Time Ring posted it in Tamasoft’s Pepakura Gallery, I knew I had my #100.  Bird, Go!  Transmute!

I’m currently building this one and hoped to have it ready to go for today, but life got in the way and I still have a long way to go.  Papercraft Friday stops for no build though, so I’ll do a followup post of the build when it’s done.  Here’s a little preview:

In honor of Papercraft Friday #100, I figured I’d dig into the blog stats and see what the three most popular papercraft posts have been.  And they are…. *drumroll*

Papercraft Friday #99: Link & Epona

August 20, 2010

I’ll be posting Papercraft Friday #100 next week, and have been thinking long and hard as to what it should be, since #100 is something of a milestone.  The runner-up choice is this week’s model of Link and Epona from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.  A model of Link seemed an appropriate candidate, given that my 3rd highest trafficked blog post and highest trafficked Papercraft Friday post is a Link model.  More on that next week.  But I came across a model I’d been looking for but had never found that fit well with the site and chose it for next week, so Link is my runner up.

This model of Link and Epona has always been one of my favorites, so I really don’t know why I haven’t featured it before.  Ninjatoes put it out over 2 years ago, but in my opinion it’s still one of the best.

Stay tuned next week for Papercraft Friday #100!

Papercraft Friday #98: Lara Croft

August 13, 2010

I picked a Lara Croft model for this week’s papercraft since the new Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light game will be released for Xbox Live Arcade in less than a week.  I can’t wait to see how it plays, though I do wish that the co-op play was available at release and not patched in a month and a half later.

Though there are numerous Lara Croft paper models around, I chose the Tomb Raider Legend version, as that game is my only complete 360 game (1000/1000 achievement points).  I did the same with Alan Wake, but then the DLC came out and added more points (damn you, DLC!!! *shakes fist*).  Enjoy the model, and Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light next week!

Papercraft Friday #97: LEGO Minifig

July 30, 2010

We have LEGO on the brain around here after last weekend’s fun at the Summer Tour, so I thought I’d see what I could find by way of LEGO papercraft.  I found what looks like a good model of the classic minifig, though there was no picture of a completed model.  There are no instructions either, for that matter.  I may just print this out myself and take my own completed photo.  If you beat me to it, send me a pic and I’ll add it to this post and credit you for it.  Download all 4 sheets of the model here.

Papercraft Friday #96: Morningstar

July 23, 2010

Sheila Mertens has created some paper models with a definitely medieval slant.  Amidst the swords, trebuchets, etc I spied this nifty morningstar.  That’s one I haven’t seen before!  I’ve always imagined that I’d kill myself with one of those before I managed to hurt anyone else.  But they just look so cool.  Head on over to Sheila’s Papermodels and make one yourself.

Papercraft Friday #95: Despicable Me Minions

July 16, 2010

From all reports, one of the better aspects of the new movie Despicable Me is the villain Gru’s adorable minions.  Look for them in their own show!  Paper Replika put out some paper models of the minions earlier this week, and they look just as cute as their animated counterparts.  They’re good beginner models in that there are not a tremendous amount of pieces, but there are a variety of shapes and curves.

Papercraft Friday #94: SSBB Luigi

July 9, 2010

If it’s still Friday where I’m at, it still counts as a Papercraft Friday post, right??    This one comes in just under the wire.  Did you build the excellent Super Smash Bros Brawl Mario from Papercraft Friday #79, but feel he was still missing something?  TouchFuzzyGetDizzy over at DeviantART, with the help of designer Ignatius, has done it again with a 3D model of Mario’s ever loyal brother Luigi.  He even got a Daily Deviation for it over there!  Grats!  As with Mario, there are no instructions and this model is not for the beginner, but for those who successfully tackled the Mario, this SSBB Luigi model will look great beside it.
