Monkey Papercraft

I've professed my love for all things Monkey here before (especially ones with funny hats) but this one really takes the cake, he's cheeky, he's got a banana and he comes in a variety of super colors!

Grab him here

thanks Bridget!

Street Fighter Papercraft

The marvellous Funny Character Cafe, a fantastic site for Papercraft aficionados has had an update since I last visited and added a spectacular Ken Papercraft, if you don't know who Ken is go to local video arcade, find a steetfighter game, choose the guy with blonde hair and the red outfit and bash the crap out your enemies. Ryu has nothing on this guy.

Grab the papercraft here...

Robosquare Ifbot Papercraft

From the Robosquare papercraft site...
In the last decade or more, the primary use of robots has been in the industrial sector. In the near future, robots are increasingly expected to play an important role in our daily lives. Some of these areas will include the home, workplace, search and rescue at disaster sites, work that is deemed too hazardous where a human life would be at risk. In the health care sector, taking care of patients, aiding in complex operations, and giving a feeling of comfort and ease. Robots are expected to play an important role in helping to cope with future labor shortages, in accordance with the issues of the growing low birthrate and increased longevity in society.
I am eagerly awaiting the day that I have my own robot that builds papercraft, does the dishes and level grinds in japanese roleplaying games. I'm not sure if the Ifbot does these things but he does look adorable, that's close enough for me.

You can grab a very cool papercraft of the Ifbot here

Yoshitaka Amano

Pretty much nothing to do with Papercraft at all, but still deserving a link is the fantastic art of Yoshitaka Amano, this guy is character designer extradionare for Square working on everything from early Final Fantasy games through to Front Mission and so much more, my favourite artist ever!

R-Type Final Papercraft

Something that's lacking in my game collection is a good japanese space shooter, so you can imagine my glee when I found out about R-Type Final! and according to this website Blue Man Group are doing a song for it, WTF?

There of course is also some wonderful R-Type Papercraft on the official Japanese site for you to download!
