My very favorite reoccuring character/race from final fantasy (they even made an appearance in Kingdom Hearts) The Moogle or Mog as some call them, their first appearance of course was in Final Fantasy 3, from the Wikipedia....
Moogles are called "Moguri" in Japan. A portmanteau of the words "mogura" and "koumori" (mole and bat, respectively). This is fitting as moogles tend to have small eyes and red/purple wings.
Of course! it all makes sense now.

I don't know what to make of this one, it seems like a Beefeater (you know those guys that don't flinch when you talk to them and guard Buckingham Palace) but he is small and adorable and riding a toy horse with wheels. It defies explanation really.

First published in the eighteen hundreds, Mary Shelleys Frankenstein has gained classic status and influenced many movies and stories. Now you can have your very own paper Frankenstein's monster on your desk to scare children and perhaps even the annoying boss who hangs over your shoulder all day.

Giant robots are the best! I dont' know if you are aware of Einstein's famous saying "I don't know what weapons will be used in world war three, but in world war four people will use sticks and stones" Dude, giant robots will be used and they will kick ass.

In my humble opinion a lot of folks slept on the gamecube this console generation, yeah it didn't have the same amount of games as the ps2 but there were some classics, Pikmin, Animal Crossing and the ever wonderful Super Smash Bros. In celebration of the grape box here's a gamecube papercraft to build and show your friends: yeah I like the gamecube, so what?

I love Square Enix, ok I didn't love Final Fantasy X-2, it gives me shivers just thinking about the time I did put into it but the squenix ones seem to be all about redeeming themselves lately (see dragonquest VIII) and this papercraft is for an interesting upcoming game called Front Mission 4 You can grab the very intense looking papercraft mech here which is great. My only problem was the format a .lzh file, I've seen this before, perhaps its big in Japan? who knows, after asking google about it the big G spat out this result, give it a crack kids...
Here's the link.

I always loved that car from Ghostbusters, actually I loved pretty much everything about Ghostbusters, if news came of Ghostbusters 3 and Bill Murray was on board I would explode within 30 seconds. Fingers crossed.
You can download the very cool Ghostbusters car here....

The very clever Captain Nod has created a couple of fantastic old school Quake papercrafts. These babys come packed with about as many polygons as the original 3d characters would have had in game, that Shambler guy used to give me the hella creeps, reminds me of my geeky teen years playing this and thinking man graphics can't get much better than this!

What could be better than a game where you farm and find a nice girl to marry? Forget your Halo 3, 360, GTA bloodlust killing spree with 10 squillion polygons at 1.5 trillion frames per second. I want a game that brings a smile to my face not a red faced tizzy fit.
Get some Harvest Moon Papercraft and whistle a happy tune.

For all the Lovecraft fans out there, the Necronomicon as a handy 6 page notebook, very cool!
For those not in the know about the necronomicon, from the wikipedia:
The Necronomicon is a fictional book created by H.P. Lovecraft and is often featured in Cthulhu Mythos stories inspired by his works. Some people, however, believe in the existence of an actual ancient text called the Necronomicon which may or may not fit the description given in Lovecraft's writings. Indeed, so convincing were Lovecraft's references to the tome that book dealers were seeking copies of it even during his lifetime.

So in celebration of what looks like a real step forward in the history of video gaming I have dugg up a link to a wii controller papercraft! Nintendo for the win!
Go get the Wii Controller papercraft from the ever wonderful 4 color rebellion!

I really love Homeworld 1 & 2, fantastic games, I don't know what the hell I'm doing half the time, but I imagine this would be the case if I really was in charge of a large fleet of spaceships, so extra points for realism there. It's a shame e3 2006 didn't deliver the goods with the annoucement of Homeworld 3 : ( to make myself happier I have found some wonderful spaceship papercraft!
Homeworld spaceship papercraft can be found here.

I'm not normally one to go in for car models (I don't even drive at the age of 28) but after playing way to much Gran Turismo 4 lately I can feel the petrol pumping through my veins and into my mushy brain, so instead of spending large amounts of money on a high powered sports car, I thought hey Ill just build a car out of paper and maybe make some car noises while I make it, you know like brrroooom and screech and stuff.
Enough inane rambling, grab the rally cars here.

Wow, this is a great find! This has to be one of my favourite shows ever and now my papercraft building beauty (you know who you are) has a weekend filled with glue, intricate parts and me demanding that this project needed to be finished yesterday!
Kids, a note to the wise, get yourself a beautiful girlfriend who likes to build insanely hard papercraft, you won't regret it.

Or more precisely a 1966 Batmobile papercraft, none of this modern day batman sacrilegious nonsense! Batman only exists to me as a camp show from the sixties where he and Robin run around in weird outfits and the dialogue is littered with gay innuendo.
