May 21, 2010

Small, today’s papercraft is.  Like building Yoda, I think you will. Perhaps fitting, it is, since Talk Like Yoda Day today is.  Herh herh herh.

This one not keen on, hmm?  Want more, hmm?  Check out other Papercraft Friday posts.

Doctor Who Time Squad – The Master

March 11, 2010

British toy company Character Options released a series of Doctor Who figures called Time Squad, which are similar to the Star Wars Galactic Heroes toys made by Hasbro.  The released a set called the End of Time series (or sometimes Series 2) that consists of 6 figures.  Each Collect & Build figure package has a piece of The Master in it, and if you get all 6 you can put him together.  See the photos of the set, which includes the Tenth Doctor, an Ood, a Weeping Angel, a Sontaran, a Cyberman, and a Clockwork Man, as well as the completed figure of the Master, after the break.

LEGO Night: 20009 Star Wars AT-TE Walker

January 27, 2010

Our build this week is the LEGO BrickMaster set 20009 AT-TE Walker from Star Wars: The Clone Wars.  It’s a 94 piece set that pretty much fits in the palm of your hand (well, if you have a large hand).  Consequently it has a lot of small pieces.  But for such a small model, it has a lot of moving parts.  The legs move, the top cannon swivels and the circular side hatches filp up.  Not a bad little set.  Pics of the completed set after the jump.

Papercraft Friday #68: Star Wars T-47 Snowspeeder

November 20, 2009

Paper Replika has a nice new Star Wars model of the T-47 snowspeeder featured in The Empire Strikes Back.  It’s a good example of how the artwork makes a rather uncomplicated model look more detailed than it actually is.  A fun compliment to the AT-AT Walker model featured last year (though not the same scale).


Papercraft Friday #46: Star Wars Trade Federation Battle Droid

June 19, 2009

droid1As you can imagine, there are a ton of different Star Wars paper models on the internet.  I’ve seen many of them, but I’m always on the lookout for things that are unique, not just your standard Death Star or R2-D2.  DPileggi has some very interesting models, including this week’s pick, the Star Wars Trade Federation Battle Droid.  I think it’s fun because it’s both detailed and very very skinny.  Head on over to DPileggi’s site to download it.


LEGO Night: 20007 Star Wars Republic Attack Cruiser

February 2, 2009


We have lots of LEGO sets big and small, but don’t seem to make the time to build them.  So we decided to try to institute a “LEGO night” each week to work through some of them.  We started off small, with the LEGO Brickmaster magazine exclusive, the 20007 Republic Attack Cruiser from Star Wars: The Clone Wars.  It was a very simple 84 piece set, and when built fits in the palm of your hand.  My son wants to hang it from his ceiling.  Pictures of the completed mini set after the break.
