Can't believe Merrci found my old pic of Brick boy!
Man, I'm so nostalgic for all this...You guys are all great! and even two years later it's nice to see who is still around.
he he, found a pic!
ok,not a academic built...
i think that's an evidence:
most of us pass the most of their time with a pen in the hand, so having a paper sheet becoming 3D and see our characters poping up, then travelling all around the world...! you can't imagine how satisfiing it is to me who can't stand more than 2 minutes in an art expo, in the middle of all those people making bla bla bla and asking always the wrong questions...
here i found real interested people , like a big fresh air breath!
to me, could be interesting to open an history of paper toy discussion.
i'ld really enjoy learning more about the roots of my fresh new "hobby". :)
Brickboy was the first big boxed-designed-toy. From around the same time (the beginning of Pictoplasma and the vinyl-toy craze) Tanaka, Readymech, and Kenn Munk were very influential. And than Cubeecraft, Speakerdog and Matt. Quite soon it all exploded with the guys from 'Urban Paper', Matt's book.
But that's the Western (urban toy) wave. In Asia home-printer companies like Canon and Lexmark were already giving away paperkits for some time by then. These were more classic and traditional like the kits from the 30s, before plastic killed the paperkit. Keisuka Saka's automata kits were famous.
