Nice Paper Toys

The Papertoy Network!

What was the first papertoy that you put together? The one that started it all.

For me, it was a preprinted model of Fox's Arwing in an old issue of Nintendo power. I think I held it together with tape than glue but it came out very nice. This was more than a few years ago. I had no idea what was papercraft at the time so I didn't get into again until little over a year ago. But I still remember that Arwing model I made.

My first paper toy was the Cubeecraft Storm Trooper, and like Dr Shazam i saw Marshall Alexander's work and the bug caught hold. But before all that i built a model of The Globe Theatre when i was ten that came with a magazine called Discovery. (it was a fortnightly historical magazine with a different model in each issue)
my first paper toy was something from cubeecraft! thanks cubee!!
The first paper model (and only paper model) I have designed is Stanley the Gloo-Bear
my first was an Optimus Prime from paper robot's 1999
A paper craft gorilla that took ages to make. I didn't like it so I covered it in paper mache and fibre glass to build up the features. I left it in my shed and mice ate half of it leaving a wierd half gorilla terminator. I am currently looking for other animals to collaborate with.

I build that one too (not my first papertoy though)

Lelouche Lamprouge by Chris Beaumont of Cubeecraft. Saw it on adult swim.

my first papertoy was hellboy by hamhead or something. :P

I made St30's fish papercraft at his house. The amount of papercrafts in his room is astonishing to say the least. I just designed my first model, it's on the front page. I think it's an udder masterpiece. 

My first paper toy was a Dr Who Tardis of my own design made out of thin red card and sellotape. It must have been about 4cm tall. I was only 8 at the time. Many years later after a lifetime of origami, point of sale design and fascination with paper in general, I discovered Toy-A-Day and I was hooked.

I stumbled on Behemoth's Castle Crashers (the Red Knight, I think) as one of the pages in a design magazine. I had no idea what Castle Crashers, or this incredibly cool thing called papercraft was, but I was hooked.


I think my first papertoy was a rudimentary NASCAR of Rusty Wallace's 1997 car I made myself. No folds or seperations, just scrunch and tape! Over time, I got better.
