Legend of Zelda Papercraft - Four Swords Link

For video gamers E3 is on the of the most anticipated yearly gaming convention comprised of the computer and video game industry. This is the time of year when video game developers show off their games and other game-related hardware. E3 2006 is just a few days away (May 10 -12, Los Angeles Convention Center), and to get things rolling here is the Legend of Zelda papercraft - Four Swords Link.

This paper model is the official Nintendo release back in 2004 via the "Famitsu Cube and Advance" magazine. It's out of print now and only a handful can be found on the net (eBay?). It was created by Chokipeta and commisioned by Nintendo, as you might remember Chokipeta is also the one that created the Shigaraki racoon dog paper model. The files are in PDF format, two for the pattern, one for the instructions and zipped. So without further ado...

Kitaro's House Papercraft

For anime fanatics here's a paper model based on Ge Ge Ge no Kitaro, the Japanese horror anime and manga classic, created by Shigeru Mizuki. Ge Ge Ge started out as a published manga series in the popular comic, Shonen Magazine, during the 1960's and later made it into TV and film. The main character is Kitaro, who can transform his hair into spikes and release them as weapons, he can also use his hand as a gun with his fingers as bullets, his stomach acid can melt any beings or objects, you get the flow..... The storyline is mostly folklore like which mainly includes exorcisms, possessions, theft of souls, and shamanism.

This paper model was created by Keicraft and commissioned by Asahi.com, the original link to this paper model is no longer working so I've posted it in on a download server for your convenience. This is in a single PDF file with one page for instructions and two for the pattern. Enjoy!
