Nora-factry (designer) started out the Time Bokan papercrafts with the villain's machine - the Time Skull Mecha - now we get to see what the good guys use ^^ Download link is at the very bottom of this post ^^.
Simple plot summary for the Time Bokan anime series >>
Very intelligent scientist invents insect-shaped time machines and calls it "Time Bokan", scientist tries it out and is a success, machine goes somewhere in time then comes back without scientist - inside was a gemstone, said gemstone was called "Dynamond" ^^, Dynamond is a super-duper powerful / valuable artifact, scientist's assistant uses Time Bokan to search for missing scientist and find out more about Dynamond, bad guys show up and try to steal Dynamond, good guys and bad guys fight, good guys always win - bad guys lose horribly.
And now the goods ^^
Time Mechabutton papercraft (aka Time Bokan 1) - Blue mecha shaped like a Japanese rhinoceros bettle. Wings open up to reveal its jet engines. Includes two mini-mechas / surveillance units: The Ladybug-Drone papercraft and Strider-Marine papercraft, both can be put inside Time Mechabutton.
Time Dotabattan papercraft (aka Time Bokan 2) - Green mecha shaped like a locust. Includes two mini-mechas: The Inch-worm Drone papercraft and Firefly-Copter papercraft. The underside of Time Dotabattan's thorax/head opens up to house the two mini-machines.
Time Kuwagattan papercraft (aka Time Bokan 3) - Red mecha shaped like a stag beetle. Of course, this has two mini-mechas as well: Honeybee-Drone papercraft and the Armadillo-Rollin papercraft.
Kudos to the designer for not only getting the mini mechas in scale with the main mecha but to cleverly design it so they could be either hidden or is a part of the main mecha - just like in the show.
The link below takes you to nora-factry's MSN public folders page, click on each folder and download all of the contents to get the goods. So that's three main mechas and 6 mini-mechas. Have fun!
