Some nostalgic video game papercrafts for today, here we have Deutsch designer Kapsch (aka Jan Kapischke) and his version of the Super Mario Fire Flower papercraft and the everlasting Tetris papercraft.
I've checked the patterns and it's pretty well done, easy and straightforward, you wouldn't have problems building them. What I like the most about it is the colors, specially the Tetris colors, it really gives you that classic Gameboy feel.

I noticed earlier today that Google has that frog on their logo (which usually indicates a holiday or an event) and completely forgot to check about it when I got to work. Well, I just got home and I saw the frog again - finally realized that it's a leap day / leap year. So here's a trio of papercrafts associated with "leaping". Croak!

An up-and-coming mangaka / dojinshi author named Nagisa who belongs to the eins circle sent us this wonderful paper model. It's a super deformed nekomimi papercraft or SD Catgirl papercraft named Tsukina and is the main character in the second volume of his work. The catgirl papercraft is wearing a school girl outfit and wielding a giant hammer / mallet as her weapon. There's also a papercraft pattern for the brown box that you see on the picture. The name of the dojin manga is 魔法少女のツクリカタ #02 and roughly translates to "Magical Girls TSUKURIKATA # 02".
The author has also pointed out that the first volume of his work that came out a year ago has a Tsukina papercraft as well and is still available for download. The link for that papercraft is available below.
The e-mail sent to me was in Japanese and I'm not quite sure my translation is accurate, so if the author is reading this, I'm terribly sorry if I messed it up ( 申し訳ありませんが、もし私が混乱する訳 ). There's another character available, the one with the bow, and we'll post it on a future date. Can't read Japanese? no problem, check out these instruction photos below to see where to click.

This is not your regular papercraft, technically, cardboard is made out of paper so I guess we'll just say that it's a very very thick papercraft.
With SCEA's recent blitz campaign full of awesome Metal Gear Solid announcements, Kotakuite Kai-Hung "Chilli Coke" Chuang couldn't get enough MGS love so he had to create this 1:1 masterpiece. Pay attention to the detail, he really took time to nail every bit. If you want to create your own, the link to the original pattern is available below.

Designer Raphael Gatt just sent an e-mail to inform us of his latest creation, an Iron Man papercraft. Let's check it out.
From the Marvel Universe, this fictional comic book superhero has an upcoming live-action film flying through theaters this May. Alongside it is a multi-platform video game tie-in which I hope doesn't suck (cross fingers). If you haven't seen the Iron Man trailer, here it is:

Capcom's Onimusha video game series is one of the PlayStation 2's popular titles. It's a fantasy type action adventure genre set in medieval Japan. Here's an Onimusha papercraft featuring the games protagonist, Hidemitsu Samanosuke Akechi - e-mailed in by reader tinto.
The pattern is a bit rough and the score/cut lines are not well planned. But still, credit goes to the designer for trying. It's a PDO file so you'll need to download Pepakura viewer for this. Give it a try.

A fantastic new papecraft from designer たーぼ, of the Turbolabo Blog. This Hi-v Gundam Papercraft sports the "SD" initials because of its trademark appearance. SD stands for Super Deformed, it's a common form of Japanese caricature in which characters are depicted as having small bodies shouldering large heads. The designer of this papercraft has been releasing the patterns one page per day and it seems that it's almost done. As of today there's five pages released including the Gundam's head, chest, waist, and two legs. To download this free papercraft, head on to the link below and click on the pictures (pattern), then save it. For my new readers, take a look at the pic below for some visual guide.

A cute bear paper model from designer クマリラ. It's called the Rilakkuma papercraft and is based on the characters created by the Japanese marketing company San-X. The name Rilakkuma translates to Relax Bear, it comes from the combination of two Japanese words - rila(relax) and kuma(bear).

Those two don't have any patterns available yet, be sure to sign up to our feed to keep you updated.
This Relax Bear papercraft is very popular marketing tool in Japan for all things related to relaxation, it even has a Nintendo DS video game that came out on November 2007 titled "Watashi no Rilakkuma". Here's a video of the DS game and below that is the link to the pattern.

Just like the very famous C-3PO but in white.

It was one of several droids stationed at Echo Base on the frigid planet Hoth.
