This is a pretty cute looking papercraft of a Bunny Girl - we all love Bunny Girls right? Possibly first inspired by Hugh Hefner's Playboy bunnys, Japan has taken the concept and run with it, Japanese Bunny Girls seem to show up all over the place - from games to anime - Bunny girls for the win.
Grab the model here (down the bottom of the page you will find some links to gif files and a PDO file).

Well, Mr. Satan/Hercule and Majin Buu to be precise. They have been created by Mike McDermott - Does that name sound familiar? Well it should, he is the same clever chap that created the Halo Master Chief papercraft featured here (and just about everywhere on the net) not that long ago. I really like Mike's papercraft and I really like Dragonball Z, so these have made my day :)
You can grab Majin Buu here and Hercule here, don't forget to check the rest of Mike's Deviant Art pages out, there are more impressive paper models to be found.

Excuse my ignorance on these models, but I have no idea what they are from, where they are from or what they are all about, they are pretty extra special cute papercrafts though, I know that much! there's 3 in total - all in PDO format - they look pretty complicated so maybe not to good for beginners! Give them a go and have fun!

Star Trek is a great television series, some would say the greatest television series ever! Well, who am I to argue? I've always had a soft spot for Kirk and crew, Picard and his shipmates hold their own pretty well too.

Hit the link and enjoy!

Go now and download: Spiderman in his classic costume, Spiderman in the black symbiote costume, Evil Dead's Ash and my favorite; a transforming Jetfire. Nice work guys!

These are a really nice looking set of papercraft tanks from Sega, after a bit of sleuthing I am pretty confident that it comes from the Dreamcast game; Advanced Daisenryaku 2001 and to be honest, the very little I do know about this game is from the fountain of knowledge itself, Wikipedia:
Advanced Daisenryaku 2001 is a follow up to SystemSoft Alpha's Advanced Daisenryaku: Europe no Arashi. Both games run on Sega's Dreamcast system. Advanced Daisenryaku 2001 fixed some bugs and moderately improved the graphics of Europe no Arashi and as such it is less of a sequel and more of a fix.
Grab the papercraft here. (Sadly I can only find the link to one of awesome looking tanks :( If anybody has any luck locating the rest on the site let me know!)
Tubbypaws has been whipping out some pretty sweet papercraft in the last couple of weeks, first the Portal Papercraft which I absolutely love and now a supremely cute Silent Hill paper model, I know you are asking yourself, how can anything to do with Silent Hill be cute? Well, this talented paper modeler has pulled it off superbly. Kudos to Tubbypaws!

I love strange and unusual papercrafts, I really do. Some of the strangest papercrafts out there are of everyday objects such as food. The papercraft steak has been mentioned here before and while I do love a steak dinner, sometimes a roast chicken is just what the doctor ordered. You can find an impressive paper chicken to download and build here. Yum!

World of Warcraft, if you have been living under a rock is the world's most popular mmorpg. It would make sense that one or two papercrafts exist of characters from the game right?

Of all the things to make a paper model out of, the people at Recortables.net have created a hilarious President of the United States papercraft - ol' chimpy McGee himself - bloodied axe and world in hand, that's not all there is to find at this great little papercraft site though, we also have a (very evil looking) Pope Benedict model, the King of Spain, the Prime Minister of Spain and of course Osama Bin Laden (which sadly doesn't seem to be available for download yet).
These are great looking models which you can grab here.

With the launch of Halo 3 mere days away, it is perfect timing that a Halo paper model would arise from the depths of the internet, I found this via the fantastic Paperkraft site which you should visit and bookmark, they have some great papercrafts available : )

Sane Person's papercraft has been mentioned here before, it seems as though a nice little update has been added since I last looked at the site, this time it's a Chocobo Paper Model. Sweet! if you don't know what a Chocobo is, Wikipedia has a lot of information on the yellow birds:
A Chocobo is a fictional large, normally flightless galliforme/ratite bird capable of being ridden and is a staple of the Final Fantasyseries. While ordinary Chocobos are yellow, certain rare breeds are of different colors and have special abilities, such as crossing mountains or flight.Grab it here, along with some over great Final Fantasy paper models.

If you have played a Japanese Roleplaying game, you will more than likely have come across treasure chests. I always greedily rush over to open them and find the goodies inside. The thing is you never know what the damn things will contain, sometimes it's a potion or a new weapon, sometimes it's a trap chest, you open it and lo and behold it comes alive and attacks you, mocking your greediness.
This papercraft seems to understand the issues surrounding treasure chests (and my greed) and gives you the option of building it with or without the monster!
Grab it here.
The Skull-a-day site is a pretty simple premise for a blog - a skull - a day, pretty cool idea huh? Of course at some point you know a Papercraft would work it's way into the mix and it's a nice one at that, the jaw even moves :)
Grab it here and if you want even more paper skull goodness, check this link.

I'm not normally one to post a model that you my dear reader can not download and build yourself, but occasionally I come across something so special I've simply got to share and this papercraft definitely falls into the special category. Whats great about this page is that you can see the entire process of the model's creation from start to finish. Awesome and very inspiring!

Contra from the amazing folks at Konami was first released way back in 1987, it's a classic side scrolling, shoot em up game with what I always found was immense difficulty and boss battles that were over the top in the best possible way! Contra 4 is soon to come to my favorite handheld gaming device the Nintendo DS as well, sweet!
You can grab a Contra Bike Papercraft here, thanks for the linktip Pat!

I think this is awesome idea, a blank subway car paper model for you to download and then draw, design, bomb or just scribble away on. This would be great for Graffiti artists to practice on before they go out for the night to have a paint ; )

The Final Fantasy series are some of the best rpgs on the market, from the NES to the Playstation 2, the games have always delivered.
The iconic game in the series would have to be Final Fantasy 7 though, it's reached cult status. The characters were great, the story was epic, the gameplay damn impressive, it blew away everybodies perceptions of what a role playing game could be when it first came out and ensured that a Playstation One was a necessary purchase.
Why not reminisce about Cloud, Aeris and crew with some awesome Final Fantasy Paper Models?

Rabbits aren't meant to be scary, they are cute, their ears flop around and they are fluffy and eat carrots. Right? Wrong. Everything you assumed about rabbits will be crushed by this papercraft. Look into his eyes, he is a rabbit possessed.
Ok maybe im going a bit overboard here, there are cute rabbits as well on this page, but scary rabbit is my favorite by far.
Grab him and his friends here (look for the link to the .lzh file down the bottom of the page)

This is a really nice skeleton paper model in my opinion, who would have thought that a skeleton could be described as cute? This one is : ) I have not made it yet due to... well life getting in the way of my papercrafting! But it appears you can attach string to the skeletons arms and legs and use him as a marionette. Pretty cool.

Since I was a kid, the idea of Doctor Who's Tardis has fascinated me. The inside of the damn thing is huge! Plus it's a time machine that looks like a British Police Box. Weird. What does Tardis stand for I hear you ask, well it is an ancroymn for: Time And Relative Dimension In Space. Fantastic. Why not build your own time machine papercraft?
You can find a nice little Tardis Paper Model here

IGN is kind enough to host a lovely little papercraft for this interesting Playstation 2 game (watch the trailer above), I really enjoyed the brief time I played it at a friends and I still haven't managed to get my greedy little hands on it's spiritual successor Shadow of the Colossus, which looks magnificent : ) there's nothing I like more than a game that breaks pre-defined gameplay rules. Yay expermentation in a stale industry!

Phoenix Wright took me by surprise when I first played it, a ds game with anime sensibilities, a ds game where you, the main character are a lawyer! WTF? But you know what, it works, it works all to well. I've spent countless hours literally screaming at my little white console.
Why not celebrate a great game with some great papercraft?
