Fold Up Toys designer Alex decided to start a series about how papercraft toys are made, with Eren Yeager from "Attack on Titan"!
You can watch the video on Youtube or the Fold Up Toys website, where you can download the paper toy as well (and you can suggest which one you want to be next ;o)

From the internet, we can learn that the Japanese are crazy about anime, cats, robots and papercraft. So of course a papercraft robot cat from the anime "Yokai Watch" should be no surprise.
In fact, if papercraft Robonyan would have worn a school girl uniform, that would have been the ultimate Japanese 'full house' I think! ;o)

This looks like a poseable Skinny Jasper, from Steven Universe! Poseable papercrafts are always a bit more bit tricky than static ones I think, but there are instructions. ;o)

You didn't think Ono, Shizuoka, Kyoto, Kakegawa, Ako, Nabari, Ichikama, Etajima and Fukuyama were the only Japanese cities with papercraft firetrucks and ambulances on their websites, did you? ;o)

In most countries, the fire department takes the first charge of rescue operations in case of accidents or disasters, because they have the big trucks that can carry heavy equipment.

I can understand the papercraft fire trucks and ambulances on the Ono Fire Department's website, but the colourful buses are a bit of a mystery. Although, I bet they just made them for fun, and I can totally understand that. ;o)

In Japan, buses often have bright, fun drawings of cute mascots or television characters. In Spain, the political party Podemos drove around in a bus with cartoons of politicians, bankers and businessmen that they are unhappy with...

Seriously, how many different tanks are there!? World of Tanks keeps paperfying one after the other, but to be honest, I'm counting other types like this Krupp-Steyr Waffenträger and M53/M55 self-propelled gun as well (and it's not a complaint, btw ;o)

If you follow my papercraft weblog, you'll know that I really love businesses that have papercrafts on their websites! Niku-Mansei is such a business and this concrete pumper is only their latest one, but actually they have a lot of really neat ones! ;o)

Maped makes school supplies, so that's why their papercraft toy Easter Bunny, elephant, Chinese New Year of the Goat and a parrot are black-and-white: so you can colour them yourself! ;o)

These papercrafts are a bit different from normal, because they are really the patterns for papercraft lanterns.
Cut out the patterns from any colour paper you want, use crêpe paper for the sides, and put a light inside to make your own combine, tractor or field chopper lantern! ;o)

(the FXX Archer website isn't available in my country, so I hope I'm explaining this correctly... ;o)
As far as I understand, during the 8th season of the animated detective comedy noir "Archer" set in the 1940s, you could use a special app on your phone to scan objects from the episodes or even in real life for bonus content in augmented reality!

Although the contest is already over (sorry...!) you can still build yourself a neat little Dungeons & Dragons Neverwinter papercraft stronghold!

I don't if it's run in other countries, but in The Netherlands, the creative agency ACHTUNG! mcgarrybowen created a cool tv commercial for Volkswagen, featuring a young boy that steals the show at a cute girl's birthday party as a transforming car!
And what's more, if you live in the Netherlands, you can get the boy's RoboPak costume from your local Volkswagen dealer! ;o)
If you like papercraft buses (and boats ;o) then you'll like Kashiwazaki Paper Model Studio's papercrafts. He stopped releasing them a while, but he wanted to let everybody know that he's back and there are quite a few available again on his DeviantArt account now!

Graphigs are a popular type of papercraft toys, and I guess they know that at the Japanese "God Wars" site, because they have one for you of the main heroine of the game, Kaguya! ;o)
