Atari always denied it, but now it seems there's proof that they really did bury millions of unsold copies of what is by many considered the worst video game ever made, the 1982 Atari 2600 video game "E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial", in a landfill near Alamogordo, New Mexico...!

This "Avian Defender" was a character designed by the famous comic book writer and artist Joe Madureira for the cancelled video game "Dragonkind". haikai13 made the 3D model and Destro2k paperfied it! ;o)
With a little help from Armada Model Designs, volunteers made several scale models of Seaforth's historical buildings for "Seaglam" ("Seaforth Gladstone Memorial"), a project by volunteers to preserve the history of Seaforth.

Fasme shared some of the pictures of the papercraft models he built on Twitter (from my own papercraft webpage American McGee's Alice, young Lara, adult Link and Mario) but if you want to see lots more (including some original ones of his own!) you will have to check out his own webpage! ;o)
Matt Hawkins created this papercraft version of General Electric's 1960's Hardiman exoskeleton prototype.
Saturday means two new Clara Dolls from "Puella Magi Madoka Magica The Movie -Rebellion-", this time it's Okubyou (Cowardice) and Manuke (Stupid-looking).

Earlier, there was the "WoWo go Roar" character with a chain-gun for an arm, and here's is Roar the lion himself! ;o)
Five papercraft toy Netroid pumas based on the Poplocks system can be combined to make the "Puma King" robot!
I think one of the reasons why papercraft has grown so popular nowadays, is that many gamers love how they can make their own papercraft models from their favourite video games; but sometimes game developers also like to turn that around now, making their games look like papercraft! (Tengami, Paper Titans, Tearaway, Monster Life, Derrick the Deathfin to name but a few ;o)

Treasure Goblins are so laden with gold, that they spill it everywhere while trying to find their way out of the dungeons of "Diablo III"...! ;o)
The "RoboCup" best known to the public is the soccer event in which the challenge for teams from all over the world is "to build a team of humanoid soccer playing robots that will be able to win a match against the winning team of the human World Cup Football by the year 2050!"
In 2014, the official World RoboCup will be in João Pessoa, Brazil (July 19 - 25) but I don't think the robots will be ready to take on the winner of the human FIFA Word Cup (also in Brazil this year from June 12 - July 13) just yet... ;o)
But there are also "RoboCups" in other fields, as shown on the Japan Open RoboCup 2014 (from May 4 - 6) for instance, where there are competitions in Soccer, but also in Rescue and Home improvement - and of course it wouldn't be Japan if they didn't have a cute mascot for each event! ;o)

Ironically, NASA's Apollo 13 Moon landing mission from 1970 is famous only because it went terribly wrong: during the approach of the Moon, one of the oxygen tanks exploded, causing critical damage to the spacecraft... ("Houston, we have a problem...")
Mr. Orange is the Kamiki Village elder in "Okami". He's married to Mrs. Orange and has a real talent for dancing (he even invented the Konohana Shuffle to revitalize the sacred tree of the village!)
Readers of this papercraft weblog probably know the "Mondorf Kallboys" from the many Mondorf-themed papercraft models they have on their website, but their main interest (for fifteen years now!) as a group is of course bowling! ;o)

AMFF Craft Work made many paper models of famous landmarks for their shop, but they also have a (low resolution) freebie so you can try out if you like their work, a paper diorama of the "torii" gates of the Fushimi Inari shrine! (among other things, Inari was believed to be the deity of prosperity, and each of the thousands of "torii" gates is donated by a Japanese company hoping to become a wealthy business ;o)
This Liburnian-Class Interplanetary Cruiser is the first of a series of paper models to come in RocketmanTan's original "Resurgam" series.
