The Magic 8 Ball Papercraft Toy

The Magic 8 ball is a simple, easy to use fortune teller which is marketed as a child's toy. You ask it a question, turn it over, and a 20 sided die floats to the top with the answer. Written on each side of the die are the answers to your question - varying degrees of affirmative or negative with a few maybes thrown in for good measure. Does it really work? That will depend on the level of faith you put in it.

Speed Racer Papercraft - Mach 5

So the Speed Racer movie is coming out next week, I've seen both the domestic and international trailer a few times and I still remain unsold based on it. As a fan of the original anime series (Mach GoGoGo), it's really hard to describe how I feel about the look of this movie without pulling my hair out. There's also a Speed Racer video game tie-in for the Nintendo Wii, maybe that's the reason for the overly done flashy eye-candy. And Mach 6 instead of the Mach 5, hopefully the Wachowski brothers can pull this one off.

Here's the original Speed Racer Mach 5 papercraft from Paper Inside.

Tango-No-Sekku Papercraft

I mentioned on a previous post about Japan's Children's Day festival being held yearly on the 5th of May, and that Boy's Day (Tango no Sekku) is also celebrated during this time. Samurai warrior dolls, armors, swords, and bows are prominently displayed inside houses along with carp streamers flown outside to symbolize the strength and determination of the carp in Japanese folklore.

In connection to the recent posts regarding Tango no Sekku, here is a Kabuto-Kazari (Samurai warrior battle helmet) papercraft and an origami carp streamer.

Yatterman Papercraft - Yatter-Bark

This dog-shaped robot is the rescue vehicle used by Gan and Ai on the anime series. It's equipped with a bell and a siren. Yatter-Bark doesn't have any cockpit for the Yatterman duo, instead they just hang on to its sides. This papercraft is from the folks at Cubic Character and is not connected to our previous Yatterman post which featured Omotchama, but both are related.

SD Gundam Papercraft - MS-06S Zaku II

Something similar to yesterday's Gundam papercraft, this is the MS-06S Zaku II Commander Type. It has the has the same color and is also piloted by the greatest mobile suite ace of the One Year War, Char Aznable. This S-type Zaku is identical to the MS-06F (green) except for its reactor and the additional antenna on the head - indicates a squad leader.

Pokemon Papercraft - Magnemite / Magneton

We're looking at the Magnemite papercraft from designer Kirasu. This Pokemon is a robotic lifeform that looks like an eyeball in a metal socket with a horse shoe magnet on each of its sides. There's three Philips head screws attached to it, two for its feet, and one on top of its head, probably an antenna. It's considered to be an Electrical/Steel type, and just like some of the other Pokemon the Magnemite has an evolved form called the Magneton. Just build three Magnemites and you've got yourself a Magneton. The pattern is in PDO format so you'll need the free Pepakura viewer to open this file. Thanks to the designer for sending it in.

SD Gundam Papercraft - MS-14S Gelgoog

This is the highly modified version of the mass produced Gelgoog piloted by Zeon ace pilot Char Aznable, it sports a distinct red color to identify its pilot's own personal custom mecha and to compliment his nickname, the Red Comet. The main pattern has no color so you'll have to print it on colored cardstock paper.

Relax Bear Papercraft - Children's Day

May 5 is Children's Day in Japan, they observe Tango-No-Sekku (Boy's Festival) to celebrate children's healthy growth and happiness. From late April to early May families display brightly colored carp streamers hoisted on a bamboo pole outside their homes called Koi-Nobori, a carp is flown for each son in the family - with the sizes ranging from big (eldest) to small (youngest). Why the carp? the Japanese consider it the most spirited of fish, because of its strength, vigor, and perseverance when swimming upstream.

Inside the house, families display armor, swords, bows, and Boy's Day Dolls (gogatuningyo). The kuma0rila blog has now put up this new Relax Bear papercraft with Relax Bear (Rilakkuma) himself on a carp suit and his friend Korilakkuma wearing a cute red apron of some sort.

Legend of Zelda Papercraft - Floormaster

We have tons of Nintendo papercraft here on our site - Legend of Zelda, Mario Brothers, Pokemon - but if you want even more, let's visit the (unofficial) Nintendo Papercraft site by Drummyralf. I'm seeing some good paper models there that I haven't posted before, starting out with some Legend of Zelda papercrafts, Floormaster from The Wind Waker series and Epona (horse) from Ocarina of Time. Then there's the Super Mario characters like Magic Mushroom, Bob-omb,Koopa Troopa, and many more. Not all the papercrafts are Chokipeta-quality, but they're good enough in their own way. Enjoy kids.

And to Nintendo Co., with all that ridiculous amount of money ($1 billion) that you're raking in from the Wii and DS, couldn't you at least provide us some official papercrafts. The cost of it, wouldn't even put a dent on your wallet.
