Feels like Geek-day today. After the virtual girlfriend article I present you another article that falls into the geeky but cute category. This time it's Papercraft Toys by Cubeecraft, a website that is offering free papercraft model downloads that can bring a smile on the face of the old and young.
Now this would not be that geeky if you would not be able to download models like Stormtroopers, the Master Chief, Kirby, NIN - Ghosts I-IV (!) or Mario. Each model is designed to fit on a standard piece of A4 letter paper and nothing is keeping you from creating your own army of Stormtroopers, Iron Mans or Batmans.
"Each toy features interlocking tabs for construction - eliminating the need for tape, glue or other messy adhesives. To download click on the model you would like then save the template image."
Cutting the pieces correctly seems to be the biggest task in creating the Papercraft Toys. I think it's a great idea that guarantees lots of fun. But, where's Darth Vader and Boba Fett?
The designers over at Cubeecraft have been busy and uploaded many new designs to the site. You can now download more than 300 different designs to print out and create. Designs now highlight the level of difficulty involved which can be create to find suitable designs for beginners and experienced users alike.
There is also a new printing help page that gives you a couple of printing tips, for instance how you get the best results out of the designs. The site is also releasing limited designs every now and then that are only available on the site for a limited amount of time. It may be a good idea to check the site regularly to download the limited designs to not miss one of those limited offers.
Cubeecraft is definitely a nice idea that can keep you entertained for a long time. I suggest you use sturdier paper when you print out the designs as it helps you fold and create the figurines.
