"Spaceballs" is a "Star Wars" parody movie; instead of travelling through space in the "Millennium Falcon", the heroes in this movie run away in the "Eagle V" Winnebago space-motorhome with rocket wings...
"May the Schwartz be with you!" ;o)

"Abomasnow" seems to be a combination of the words "Abonimable Man Snow", a reference to the "Abonimable Snowman", a mythical, ape-like creature said to live on the snow-covered mountains of Nepal and Tibet.
(I think he kinda looks like an owl, though... ;o)
Lupi the dog is the mascot for "PlayKids TV", an app for iPhone, iPad or Android device (you can download the papercraft toy without one, though! ;o) for your little kids to watch cartoons and play games.

"Death" is one of the seven eternal brothers and sisters in Neil Gaiman's "The Sandman" graphic novel series, this time not a gruesome skeleton wearing a black robe and carrying a scythe, but an attractive young goth woman in casual clothing.

"TechEddie" was (?) a webcomic in the Dutch Microsoft TechNet e-mail newsletter and website, about the cheeky IT guy "TechEddie".
The papercraft toy was made by 3EyedBear and never got past the prototype stage, but TechEddie creator Herman Roozen and 3EyedBear agreed to post the prototype anyway! ;o)

Like I said in the last Yuffie WIP post: because people have two feet, it's the perfect opportunity to test build two different unfolds for Yuffie's shoes to see which one works best (cutting them up widthwise or lengthwise for example)! ;o)

The "Kallboys" are a bowling team of friends from Mondorf, Germany. Usually they like to bowl in their hometown, but for their "club tours", they would love to have their own official team bus like this old-timer someday! (but for now, they have to be content with just a paper version... ;o)
The Volkswagen Typ 2 (T2) van is a classic icon, and there have been many different and customized versions, but this Brazilian Kombi Last Edition will really be the last official built version...!

Because countries spend a lot of money on their military defense forces, it's important to show the people what the men and women of the military do when fortunately most of the times they're not at war.
In Korea, this is done on the Korea Ground Forces Festival (will be held this year from October 2 - October 6 2013), and although nobody wants to fight an actual war of course, kids can enjoy fighting pretend wars with paper tanks! ;o)
I haven't finished work on Yuffie's head and some other parts yet, but I wanted to start building, so I unfolded the first parts for a test build! ;o)
Arrr, me mateys! Did ya know September 19 is "Talk Like A Pirate" day? ;o)
Halloween is not for another month, but Canon Creative Park figures you need time if you want to make some papercraft decorations of your own, so they already released their Halloween collection for the year now! ;o)

Wildfires are very difficult to fight because they can grow very big very fast and are often difficult to reach, so park and forest services usually have their own fire departments to try and put out any fires before they get too big...!

After sights like Mount Fuji, Ashinoko Lake, the Mount Aso volcanic crater and several more, HCC Craft now paperfied a new part of Japan's famous landmarks as a simple pop-up card showing the Tedori River flowing down Mount Hakusan in what is now the Hakusan Tedorigawa Geopark.
