Link, Mario, LEGO C-3PO, Kim Possible, NES Zapper, Batman, Lulu, Barack Obama and lots more by Richard (and Kristine ;o)

17-10-2018: Who wants to build papercrafts when it’s so warm and sunny like it was last Summer? Not Richard! ;o)

In fact, he didn’t papercraft for months, but now it’s Fall, he felt the itch to papercraft something again, and that something was Twilight Link: picture 2 | picture 3

07-03-2018: Richard’s friend is a big Obama fan, so Richard decided to build a papercraft LEGO Obama for her as a gift: picture ;o)

You can see that I don’t have a papercraft Obama LEGO minifig though, so he recoloured my Luke Skywalker to make it. ;o)

To save time, Richard left out all the inner parts that are quite tricky to build sometimes and take a lot of extra work. So LEGO Obama can’t move his arms and legs like my other papercraft minifigs, but he looks great for the picture of course! ;o)

06-02-2018: Normally, Richard builds papercrafts that he knows, but even though he never played Final Fantasy X, he liked my papercraft Lulu so much that he decided to try it anyway: picture

It took him four weeks of work at a regular pace. And although he says some parts like the hands were hard to build for him and that he would like to “build them as clean” as me, I think he’s a bit exaggerating because his papercraft Lulu looks amazing, especially in her photoshopped setting! (I’m half expecting a big Ragora to pop up from the background! – not that that would worry Lulu of course, since she’d just Firaga the hell out of it ;o)

02-01-2018: Well, it looks like Batman is warning us beforehand not to make any trouble on the streets of Gotham, or else… :o!

This time, Richard had the help of his sister Kristine, making this papercraft Batman as a holiday project together: picture

It was not easy, especially the head and hands, but I must say they did a good job on making him look so intimidating to any evildoers: picture ;o)

24-11-2017: Richard has been playing Super Mario 64 lately, and couldn’t resist building Paper Mario 3D: picture

He says he didn’t find it very difficuly to build, except maybe the hand. ;o) But as you can see, he managed, and Paper Mario 3D is quite as part of his growing papercraft collection: picture!

19-10-2017: How cool is that! Richard is fairly new to papercraft, but he already made not only LEGO C-3PO, but also Kim Possible and the NES Zapper:

Some parts like C-3PO’s head and hands were tricky, but as you can see, he did an impressive job! ;o)

Thank you for building these Ninjatoes’ (and other peoples’!) papercraft models!

Snow Queen, Wonder Woman, Batman and many other repaints by David Penso

18-04-2017: There are two reasons why you might not recognize my original Wetsuit Lara papercraft model in this new repaint made by David.

Not only did Lara go blonde, but more importantly, our familiar Tomb Raider is wearing a dress!?

And not just any dress, but a real Snow Queen dress, with icy motifs! ;o)

06-03-2016: This picture shows the newest repaint made by David: Wonder Woman, played by the actress Gal Gadot in the upcoming “Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice”!

Wonder Woman is a mix of the Underworld wetsuit and the Legend versions, but her clothes, shield, and other weapons are all brand new by David!

I hope the movie will be good too…! ;o)

29-08-2015: As you can see below, David must be a big Batman fan, because he spent a lot of time repainting my papercraft Batman several times before already!

This time, he repainted him as the Christian Bale version, from the 2005-2012 “The Dark Knight Trilogy” Batman movie series reboot by Christopher Nolan, looking very dark indeed: picture

21-04-2014: After repainting my papercraft Batman into several other comic book characters, this time David left “The Dark Knight” as he is: picture ;o)

16-03-2014: Why should the U.S.A. be the only country that has a national superhero (Captain America)? For instance here’s David’s version of Captain Mexico (based on my papercraft Batman again): picture ;o)

10-02-2014: Superman is no longer a Man of Steel, but a Man of Paper: picture ;o)

06-02-2014: David made another repaint of my papercraft Batman after a request from a friend, who as you can see wanted him to make a papercraft He-Man: picture ;o)

15-03-2013: David still wasn’t done with Batman, but this time he wasn’t making Batman, but Flash, another comic book hero: picture !

Just as he made Lara into the Black Widow earlier, he took the parts of my papercraft Batman and repainted them into the distinctive red and gold colours of Flash!

And as you can see, since Flash is just as muscular as Batman in the comic books, it looks pretty good! ;o)

13-11-2012: After a few people made my papercraft Batman out of aluminium beverage cans, David made a regular, paper one again: picture

He glued on the left arm a little crooked, but instead of changing it, he made a little Batarang and put it in Batman’s hand so it looks like he’s about to throw it! ;o)

05-06-2012: Some time ago, David contacted me about the possibility of recolouring my papercraft Tomb Raider Legend Lara to make her look like Natasha Romanova (Black Widow) from Marvel’s Avengers series.

And as you can see, he decided to pursue the idea, and now you can see the result: picture

David really did a great job! I think Lara looks great as Black Widow, with the contrasting black catsuit and the red/aubern hair, which is kinda her trademark I guess. ;o)

David even added some extra strips of orange paper to give Black Widow some more/fuller hair, and for the final finishing touch, he used the bullet bracelets and belt buckle parts from the My Paper Heroes Black Widow toy: link

15-12-2011: This time, David built my papercraft model of Indiana Jones: professor of archeology, expert on the occult, and ‘obtainer of rare antiqueties‘ (in other words, a tomb raider ;o)

You can see a picture of David’s paper Indy here: picture

Of course he has his trusty fedora and shoulder bag, his whip, his gun, and a machete to cut through the jungles of Peru.

Everything an adventurer needs to save the world from certain doom. ;o)

15-11-2011: This year, Thanksgiving falls on November 24th, and as you can see, David has already been making preparations: picture

He made a small Thanksgiving display for the office where he works with the papercraft Thanksgiving turkey from the SpaceStation42 (I think he made the turkey’s legs himself) and his Homer Simpson paper model.

But although a papercraft turkey isn’t edible of course, Homer doesn’t seem to realize that…

(or perhaps, Homer being Homer, he just doesn’t care that it’s only a paper turkey… ;o)

11-11-2011: Only a day after the last one, David sent me another picture of a papercraft model he built, this time of Homer Simpson!

David did a great job putting it together, but I’m not sure he should leave Homer alone with a pair of scissors, though; knowing Homer, that combination can’t possibly end very well…

10-11-2011: After Mario, David built another one of my papercraft models: the Great White shark from the Tomb Raider II video game: picture

It’s one of the first models I made using Pepakura Designer, because I really like the polygonal/blocky look of the classic Tomb Raider games!

And I kinda like sharks, and although I’m not sure Lara does too (to be honest, I never almost got eaten by one…) I’m glad David does! ;o)

13-07-2011: It’s always fun to welcome a new co-worker at the office, and especially if it’s Paper Mario!

This one was built by David Penso, and from the looks of it, Mario‘s already feeling at home: picture ;o)

Thank you for building these Ninjatoes’ papercraft models!

Mario, Link and other papercrafts by Ivana

(click for a bigger picture)

14-01-2016: Ivana from Brazil doesn’t remember exactly when she made the first papercraft in the picture above, but she does remember the order she made them in:

  1. the Master Sword in the pedestal, from The Legend of Zelda (by Xenonray)
  2. Toad, from the Mario series (by Oli Gig I think)
  3. Goku, from Dragon Ball Z (I think by Action Papercrafts)
  4. Link, from the Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess (by me ;o)
  5. the Energy tank from the Metroid series (by Zenith Designs)
  6. Mario (by me again)

For Mario, she didn’t even need to use the instructions! But for Link, she was glad I made them because that one is more difficult…!

For Mario, she sent me bigger picture too: picture

I think it looks pretty good, don’t you? ;o)

She also sent some more pictures of Link, who seems to be admiring the Master Sword in the pedestal: picture

And moments later, the Master Sword has mysteriously disappeared from the pedestal: picture

I think Link took it, but it’s okay of course, since he’s a good guy. ;o)

So you can see that Ivana has taken quite a liking to making papercrafts. She told me she already printed my papercraft Lara Croft from Tomb Raider Legend, and I hope she’ll enjoy making that one too of course! ;o)

Thank you for downloading and building these Ninjatoes’ (and others’ ;o) papercraft models!

Mario, Link, Lara and Alice by Fasme

25-04-2014: Fasme shared some of the pictures of the papercraft models that he built on Twitter already, not just my Paper Mario you see above, but also adult Link, young Lara and even American McGee’s Alice that he made for his girlfriend on Valentine’s Day! ;o)

You can see those pictures here too: picture | picture | picture

But even those are only a few of the many papercraft models that Fasme built!

On his own webpage you can see lots more, not just from my papercraft models, but also from many other papercrafters and even some original ones of his own: Fasme Creations.

Be sure to check it out! ;o)

Thank you for building these Ninjatoes’ (and other people’s! ;o) papercraft models!

Paper Mario 3D by Beav3rboy

2013-08-10: Here’s an excellent build of my Paper(craft) Mario 3D again, by Beav3rboy! ;o)

“Paper Mario 3D” is actually only Beav3rboy’s latest addition to his papercraft collection though, he has a whole cabinet filled with papercraft models he built!

And it’s a really broad collection too, ranging from a Star Wars scout trooper on a speederbike to Santa and his sleigh and even a Skyrim Frost Dragon, and lots more cartoon and video game characters!

Don’t believe me? Then check out his DeviantArt gallery and see for yourself: link

I just hope he can still find a spot for his new Paper Mario…! ;o)

Thank you for building a Ninjatoes’ papercraft model!

Paper Mario by Papercraft Indonesia

14-08-2012: Papercraft is very popular in Indonesia (no doubt for a large part thanks to the Paper-Replika website! ;o) and here is more proof!

This picture of my papercraft Mario (and several other papercraft models from various websites! ;o) was posted by PapercraftID (Papercraft Indonesia) some time ago on their Twitter account: link

Although the hands weren’t finished yet in this picture, Papercraft Mario already looks really good I think! ;o)

If you want to see more of PapercraftID‘s pictures, you can look up their Twitter account with posted images here: link

Thank you for building a Ninjatoes’ papercraft model!

Cloud by Sotong Kring

14-10-2012: Sotong Kring just keeps building and building, it seems! ;o) Here’s a new paper model built by him already: Cloud Strife!

From this angle, you can really see how huge the Buster Sword is: you wouldn’t want to run into that if you were Cloud’s enemy…

Another great build by Sotong Kring!

13-10-2012: A few days ago, Sotong Kring sent me a picture of the paper Mario he built, but now he showed me two new pictures of models he also built!

One of them is Underworld Lara, and Sotong Kring took a beautiful picture of her: picture

Lara seems to have made it out of the shark infested waters, and is now making her way through the jungle in search of some ancient temple ruins

And the other one is a T-Rex dinosaur, who seems to have already met Lara (seeing as it is already feets up: picture ;o)

Two more great builds by Sotong Kring!

10-10-2012: Sotong Kring tells me he’s a fan of my blog, because he can find many papercraft models through it.

And as you can see, one of the paper models he found, was my very own papercraft Mario: picture ;o)

I think Sotong’s paper Mario looks really wonderful, and from the looks of it, Mario himself is pretty happy with the job Sotong did too! ;o)

Thank you for building a Ninjatoes’ papercraft model!
