Link, Mario, LEGO C-3PO, Kim Possible, NES Zapper, Batman, Lulu, Barack Obama and lots more by Richard (and Kristine ;o)
23-03-2019: Richard did it again! He built another really nice papercraft, and this time it’s Cloud, in the Kingdom Hearts version!
He’s originally from the Final Fantasy series though of course, where he’s famous for his huge “buster sword” – in fact even the papercraft version is so heavy, that he decided to put it down for a little bit: picture ;o)
It’s another great build by Richard, whose only problem now he says that he “doesn’t know where to put them anymore…” ;o)
17-10-2018: Who wants to build papercrafts when it’s so warm and sunny like it was last Summer? Not Richard! ;o)
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)
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!
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)
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!
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!
08-02-2019: This time, I received a really nice email from Helen, telling me how much she enjoys building papercrafts!
Because she considers herself still a “novice” papercrafter, she finds the step-by-step pictures I try to make to make instructions for my papercrafts very useful; for now, she likes to build cute papercrafts that are usually also a bit simpler for beginners. But as you can see, I think she managed to build my papercraft Chancellor Cole very well! ;o)
It’s extra impressive, because she actually made Chancellor Cole half the size as normal, which makes the parts even smaller…! Because Chancellor Cole has such small feet, she glued a small transparant piece of plastic so he won’t fall over.
Helen also has another tip: she stuffs her papercrafts with pieces of bubble wrap packaging she has left over (after bursting the bubbles first of course, which must be fun to do in itself as well! ;o) so that the papercrafts will be more solid and stronger when put together.
If you look closely, you will see something else special, though: Helen has decorated Chancellor Cole’s hats with some little gemstones (and apparantly he also found a really big gem which makes him very happy ;o) This way, he fits in very nicely with some of Helen’s real figurines: picture
That’s another thing Helen likes to do: creating little “fairy tale” scenes with the papercrafts she made. She sent me a picture of some of the displays with other papercrafts she made: picture
I think the little sceneries look very nice, and it’s a smart way to display and enjoy the papercrafts she made! ;o)
Thank you for your nice story and for building a Ninjatoes’ papercraft model!
13-01-2019: It’s not very busy yet after the holiday season at the office where John works, and as you can see he managed to take some time to build Zora armor Link and Skyward Impa from my Legend of Zelda series! ;o)
And as you can see from these two close-ups of ZaL, at that size they still look really good! (but that’s also because of the care taken when building them of course ;o)
Thank you for building these Ninjatoes’ papercraft models!
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)
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!
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)
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)
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)
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…
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!
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:
- the Master Sword in the pedestal, from The Legend of Zelda (by Xenonray)
- Toad, from the Mario series (by Oli Gig I think)
- Goku, from Dragon Ball Z (I think by Action Papercrafts)
- Link, from the Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess (by me ;o)
- the Energy tank from the Metroid series (by Zenith Designs)
- 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!
