Papercraft Reindeer Christmas Decoration

The tree is looking super with the various paper ornaments I have found, so now I just need to build a few decorations to litter around the house. What could be more Christmasy (is that a real word?) than reindeer? Absolutely nothing in my opinion, so I've dug up an automated, animated reindeer that is warming up for the Christmas night run with Santa. He's so cute I feel sick.

You can download him here...

Xmas Paper Models

My tree is starting to look pretty sweet with the paper model ornaments that I have been digging up from all over the web, one of the highlights that I had to share was Rob's Polyhedron Models. While not specifically created for christmas, they are truly amazing and work perfectly for that xmas-tree-on-the-cheap :)

Grab them here.

You will need some software called Great Stella which is available from here.

More Excellent Japanese Paper Craft

I found these a long time ago and lost the bookmark, so it was with great delight that I stumbled across them again, nice big paper models of various characters (as usual I have no idea what they are from) they all seem to be holding utensils? Awesome. I'm still shopping for Xmas presents, more and more I am leaning towards just giving friends and family papercrafts. I would love to receive something like this for Christmas!

Grab them here.

Christmas Paper Crafts

Wow almost xmas time already! I've been out looking at Christmas decorations and was utterly disturbed by the cost of the sparkly tree ornaments, as I left the store, not really feeling the christmas spirit, it came to me in a flash: paper christmas ornaments! My searching has come up with this gem, a 3D Paper Snowflake!

You can grab it here and spread the xmas love!

Steambot Chronicles Papercraft

I've been catching up on a few games from this year that have been on my must play list and the one that has really taken me by surprise is quirky little rpg called Steambot Chronicles (or Bumpy Trot in Japan, they should have kept that name!). Billed as a 'sandbox' game, it's a mech game, it's a dating sim, you get to join a band and play musical instruments, there's a very good 9-ball mini game, there is a lot of things to do and they are all done really nicely. At this point (i'm about 8 hours in) I'm picking it as my game of the year!

You can imagine my delight when I was looking over the official site and low and behold they have papercraft! Click on the downloads page and make your very own trotmobile!

Paper Mask

Brett Simons who was suffering from a midlife crisis came up with a simple and in my opinion wonderful solution to justifying his existence. Rather than a new Harley or a tattoo, the usual signs that a man is suffering from a midlife crisis, Brett has gone and crafted himself a paper mask based on his face

You can download it from his site, and compare the paper to the man yourself.

I'd highly recommend you check out and bookmark the Art and Craft of Toy Making site, for some awesome plush toys and toy concept development. Super nice!

Space Ship Paper Model

Boy they sure knew how to do space back in the seventies, Star Wars, 2001 Space Odessy, Buck Rogers (or was that the eighties?) Anyway they loved them some space back then with a passion, including a short lived show by the name of Salvage 1, running for 16 episodes starting in 1979. The show even had Isaac Asimov as a scientific advisor! Awesome.

Pat York has put together a damn fine looking Paper Space ship for your enjoyment from the show that you can grab here.


All I seem to post these days is Robot papercraft, but it's hard not to when you find stuff like this. I particulary like the cyclops with drills for arms : ) from a game I have never heard of but would like to play. robots+gamecube=win.

Grab him and some other tasty morsels here.

Chromehounds Papercraft

I promised myself no more consoles for a while, I've got a Ps2 and a Gamecube, what more do I need right? That Xbox 360 isn't going to have any games I like, it's all sports and car racing and gangbangers. Not a Japanese game to be seen.

Then they go and start making games like Chromehounds and I think well I do like mechs and that whole giant robot thing. But how good could it be right? Well guess what it's freaking awesome! and to make it even better they have Papercraft on the japanese site! I'm sold... any game with giant mechs and official papercraft is something I need to play.

Enough rambling you can grab a papercraft Chromehound (or three) from the official website, click the green button in the bottom right corner. Me, well i'm of to EB Games to see what sort of deal I can get... That Dead Rising game looks promising too : )

Papercraft Search Engine

You may have noticed a new feature on Papercraft World, we now have our very own Papercraft Search Engine! Using a great tool called Swicki from the very clever folks at Eurekster, i'm hoping the Papercraft Swicki becomes the search tool of choice for Papercraft enthusiasts everywhere! So what makes it different from Google or Yahoo I hear you say? Well to put it in a nutshell a swicki is driven by it's users, if you find something that is the perfect result for what you were looking for you can promote that result so it moves higher in the search results. I think I have made it sound far more complicated than it actually is : ) Have a play and if you find it useful keep using it and help create a fantastic Papercraft Search Engine!

You can check it out here or just use the search box on the right of this page.

Tron Papercraft

Tron was released in 1982 and to be honest itreally blew my young mind, already a video game addict, the last thing I needed was a movie starring Jeff Bridges, a variety of at the time amazing "computer graphics" and a really cool "Light Cycle"

From the Wikipedia:

"In the year it was released," says director Lisberger, "the Motion Picture Academy refused to nominate Tron for special effects because they said we 'cheated' when we used computers which, in the light of what happened, is just mind-boggling."

oh.... ok?

You can grab a papercraft Tron Light Cycle here
