Kung Fu Panda Papercraft

With a ton of good movies lined up for summer 2008, DreamWorks Animation's Kung Fu Panda is probably one of the most anticpated film for younger audiences, right there with Pixar's Wall-E. The story is about a lazy, slacker panda named Po who teams up with the legendary Furious Five (Tigress, Crane, Mantis,Viper, and Monkey) under the guidance of Master Shifu, to save the Valley of Peace from a villainous snow leopard called Tai Lung.

Here's another great release from HP, the Kung Fu Panda papercraft are cute and much better than they're first try (remember Shrek 3D?) The paper model set includes all of the Furious Five and Master Panda Po. Grab them now and be sure to "Prepare for Awesomeness"

2008 Olympic Papercraft Mascots

The Fuwa or "good luck dolls" in Chinese are the official mascots for the 2008 Summer Olympics being held in Beijing. They were designed by Han Meilin and consist of five members. They are Beibei (blue), Jingjing (black), Huanhuan (red), Yingying (yellow?) and Nini (green) - like other mascots before them, each one represents a color from the five Olympic Rings. I'm not sure about Yinying though, one of the official colors is yellow, but he looks more orange to me. Probably a result of China flexing its muscle again, defiant as always.

The designer calls himself paperpop and makes his home at the cardmodel site (China). He has released the first (Beibei) of the five Olympic papercrafts and would continue to do so on the 24th of each month until all five mascots are done, with the last one being on the actual end date of the Olympic games.

Don't forget to bookmark and come back on the scheduled release dates:
BeiBei - April 24 (Available Now), JingJing - May 24, HuanHuan - June 24, YingYing - July 24, NiNi - August 24.

Arcade Papercraft - Moon Patrol Diorama

An old classic arcade game, this one is. It's a side scrolling shooter in which you control a lunar rover trying to cross over pitted and rocky terrain while avoiding attacks coming from alien space crafts over head and tanks up front. Designer Marianne Mazurowski over at the Conejo/Coneja blog has created this cool Moon Patrol papercraft diorama for us to gaze at. The patterns are not yet finalized so keep your eyes glued here for the update. For now, let's head over to the link below and reminisce on the good old days when joystick and a couple buttons was king.

Earth Day Papercraft - 2008

Today is Earth Day, a day that we call for action to protect our blue planet's fragile ecosystems from our excessive and unrestrained use of its natural resources. I've searched for some Earth Day papercraft or anything related to it but there's not much out there that has good quality to them. These three however, fit perfectly. We start of with Canon's Globe Puzzle papercraft, we've previously shown this one before but its a very good paper model and educational tool that we'll show it again.

Next we go to Italia to our friend Pino's place (Paperpino) for his Earth Relief Globe papercraft, and finally we visit Japan to see the eco-kun papercraft character, it's a mascot for the Kahma Company Ltd. that promotes eco-friendly products - Kahma is a DIY hardware and household goods store, similar to Home Depot or Lowes here in the US.

Video Game Papercraft - PC Gamer

Yesterday, I went to my local Barnes and Noble bookstore to check out a new section on the store that is carrying imported Japanese books, mostly manga, anime, and origami stuff. Sad to say I didn't find anything related to papercrafts. So I went to the magazine section to check out some video game mags and there it was, a (Fallout 3) Vault Boy papercraft staring at me. I quickly grabbed the mag and tried to see what other stuff was in it. The magazine is the PC GAMER HOW TO: The Ultimate Guide to DIY Gaming edition. I went straight to the particular article, they called it "Gaming Papercraft! Time To Test Your Finger Dexterity" - the first one is a simpler version of Portal's weighted companion cube, followed by the Fallout 3 Vault Boy, then a Bioshock Big Daddy papercraft, and finally a Half-Life 2 Gordon Freeman papercraft. The mag also indicates that all the paper models were done in Pepakura Designer. It's not the best of models, but it's good enough for beginners.

I know I'm going to receive a lot of request for a scan, but this one is a no go. The mag is only $10 cheap and its available everywhere, I think anybody interested can afford this one. Pardon the quality of the photos, my camera phone is old.
