Pyramid Head Papercraft

The Silent Hill series of games is without doubt the scariest group of games I have ever played, while other games try they never really come close to creating that sense of horror that the team at Konami has created successfully game after game. First appearing in Silent Hill 2 Pyramid Head has to be the most well known (and feared) antagonist in the games...

Anubis' Tomb has a nice pyramid head paper model to adorn your space which you can grab here.

SD Gundam Papercrafts

O.K. these babies aren't free. They are going to cost you 19 dollars or so each - paid through Paypal... But you have to admit even for 19 dollars it's still worth it right? That's a damn good looking Gundam paper model! One more bonus is that they come with an instruction manual - not many papercrafts at this level of complexity do that. If anyone does buy one let me know how it goes :)

Check them out here... and find the shop on this page if you are interested.

Totoro Papercraft Plus!

My Neighbour Totoro is a film created by Hayao Miyazaki and the team of Studio Ghibli - the same people who created Princess Mononoke and the Academy Award winning Spirited Away anime. Created in 1988 it went on to win the Animage Anime Grand Prix prize. A very cool movie full of amazing characters and just like Princess Monoke and Spirited Away - it's a must see no matter how old you are.

You can grab a Totoro Papercraft here (PDF). And don't forget to visit the authors page for some more impressive paper models.

The internet is a very large place and there is room for all sorts of things to exist and in this case it's a great looking papercraft of a girl in a bikini, and if that's not safe for your work environment there is an optional top to put on her.

There's an .lzh file about half way down the page - look for the link in blue that says LZH in the title :)

DOTA Papercraft

I've mentioned Warcraft Papercraft around here before but HobiKit has taken it one step further by creating paper models of DOTA characters, pretty cool. Apparently there are more models to come which won't just be limited to Warcraft. Keep an eye on this site people!

Paper Models of Transformers

Although I really enjoyed the recent Transformers movie on the big screen, after watching it again on DVD I couldn't help feel somewhat disillusioned by Hollywood's treatment of an eighties classic, what if they had kept things simple like the good ol' days? Where's Soundwave! Where's Megatron turning into a freaking handgun? In desperation for nostalgia, I went in hunt of some Transformers papercrafts that represented the true school of Transformers and oh boy did I hit the motherload! You can check them out here, a truly impressive collection of Paper Transformers - Let's hope there is even more to come, I can only imagine the possibilities!
