If you like the "atmospheric adventure through a surreal, bug-infested world" of Hollow Knight, you will love these papercrafts! 🐛💀 (and if you're not into atmospheric adventures through surreal, bug-infested worlds, you'll probably still like the papercrafts 😉)

We kenden ze allemaal, de Free Record Shop, de Kijkshop, Bart Smit; nu alleen nog als gratis bouwplaat van het Mausoleum van de Retail... 🏪

Yes, that's what happens when you make your ship out of paper... Well except the rusting of course. And instead of sinking, it will probably just float on the surface until it disintegrates. Hm, I guess a papercraft wouldn't be anything like the real sunken World War 2 Japanese battleship Yamato... Except this one of course! 😉
The Heppoko Paper Model Studio is releasing this one in parts again, so check back regularly until you have all the parts! 😃

Cube-D is a digital circuit learning kit that allows you to play around with various systems like timers in a simple way by just mounting system blocks on the board.
You can even use it to control a motor to play with the various Digital Puppet papercrafts that you can download from their website for free! 😉
What's the difference between Pixelblox and Pixelcubes? Well go to Zakane's paper toy website, build some for yourself and find out! 🎲
They are simple cubes, but the fun is in the pixel artwork of Pokémon, Kamen Rider, Maple Story and lots more! 🙂
(and don't forget to check out his old website with more paper toys of course, you might still find some working links with even more papercraft toys: link 😃)
I think it was in 2008, when the Nintendo Papercraft website was founded by fans of, well, Nintendo and papercraft. 🎮✀
It quickly became a populair website with lots of Nintendo related papercrafts, but finally after a long time it was not maintained anymore and now the Nintendo Papercraft websitehttp://nintendo-papercraft.com/ is not available anymore... 😞
FinalSmash found it a real shame that Nintendo Papercraft with all its links to really cool papercrafts (some of which even made by Final Smash himself! 😄) and he made a new weblog to share as many Nintendo Papercraft papercrafts as he can again!
In the words of FinalSmash:
I'll be posting all of my designs here as well as collecting all of the Nintendo models I can find. Ideally this becomes the replacement for the now-defunct Nintendo Papercraft!

Fisihing Spirits is originally an arcade game, but it looks like Bandai Namco will be releasing a version for the Nintendo Switch this July 25th! 🕹🎮
...and if you're like me and didn't know about Fishing Spirits, the papercraft should give you a clue that this is not your normal fishing game! 🎣

The Heppoko Paper Model Studio has released quite a few cool freebies this year already, ranging from a real U.F.O. to a submarine aircraft carrier (and lots more before! 😃)
Here's another one, the World War II Japanese seaplane tender Akitsushima, and this time all the parts are even released in one go! 🚢🛫 😃

If I understand Google Translate correctly, Energy Akari Park 2018 was an exhibition showcasing the possibilities of renewable energy, like biogas plants and wind turbines.

If you like weird folklore tales, maybe you already know Baba Yaga, the Russian hag that lives deep in the woods and can either be good or bad, depending on who's telling the story... 😇😈
When Kenzi tells the story in the season 2 episode "Mirror Mirror" of the tv series Lost Girl, she wants to summon Baba Yaga to help her friend Bo get revenge on Dyson for breaking her heart. Obviously things go wrong, and instead Kenzi gets taken to Baba Yaga's realm to be her slave and/or lunch... 👧💀🍖👵
I don't think we ever get to see the outside of Baba Yaga's hut in the Lost Girl episode, but according to Russian folklore (and now we finally get to the weird part...) it stands on chicken legs as you can see in Fat Dragon Games' papercraft... 🐔😵 ❕❔

This is a bit bigger of a project compared to the other two I dug up for this year's Star Wars Day (one two) because it's not really a papercraft that you can just print out and glue together, but more of a set of templates to be cut out of cardboard.
May the Fourth be with you if you try on this project! 😃
To be honest, I don't really know how it would be humanly possible you would not yet have the Millennium Falcon Paperfoldable, because it feels like Disney's Lucas Film sent it to pretty much every family blogger out there to promote the Blu-ray release of Solo: A Star Wars Story to moms, dads and their kids.... 🚀
Still, I didn't want to risk a person on the planet out there not having it for Star Wars Day (and it also has Chewbacca, even if he was played by a different actor... 😔)

With Sasatoku's free monthly seasonal papercrafts, you get to learn a lot what kind of holidays they have in Japan (and what kind of fruit and flowers 😉) - but Mother's Day is of course a holiday in many other countries as well! 👪

The Resolution is a research vessel for the Joint Oceanographic Institutions for Deep Earth Sampling (which from this point on, I shall call "JOIDES"... 😉) to drill core samples from under the ocean floor. 🌏

If you follow my weblog, you know DrWheelieMobile really loves animals and has already created enough to make her own little papercraft zoo!
...but I think this time with this Diplodocus dinosaur (based on a model by DinosaurManZT2) it looks like she's working to make her own papercraft Jurassic Park! 😉

I sometimes make fun of literally everything in Japan having a mascot aimed at little kids, and sometimes it really is very silly, but in the case of health promotion it's a good cause. 😉

Having been so busy the past few weeks, I'm only posting the release of Sasatoku's monthly papercraft gift basket today.
But I think that's okay, because this one is really Easter related with the bunny ears and all. 🐰🥚

If you from time to time like to browse through the "hall of fame" with pictures from the papercrafts that people built from my papercraft website, you might recognize the name Richard, because he built quite a few of my papercrafts already! 🙂

Last week's Papercraft Pokémon Sunday saw a free papercraft cubee Poké Ball ⬒ which would fit in with really nicely with the Minecraft Pokécube mod:
So this Papercraft Pokémon Sunday, I wanted to show you a free papercraft Minecraft Pokémon Wartortle 🐢🌊 made by a Pokécube fan! (and if you go to the Pixel Papercraft website, you will find many more papercraft Minecraft Pokémon 😃)

If you can't decide whether you want to papercraft a cute anthropomorphic cat or a cute antropomorphic lesser panda wearing hats, then great news: just make these two Kyoto regional development office mascots Hashi and Mitchi! 😺🐾

You know it (or at least you should, since I told you so many times before 😉) I really like Japanese fire department websites with papercraft fire trucks and ambulances - and the Natri Fire Department has quite a few! 🚒🚒🚒🚒🚒🚒🚒🚒🚒🚑🚑🚑🚑🚑 😃

⭕nce upon a time...
...November 15th, 1997 to be exact, there was a playable demo version of Pokémon Gold and Silver at Space World 1997.
20 years later, somebody dumped a ROM of those bèta versions online, and people discovered all kinds of unknown Pokémon that never make it into the final games!
Now they didn't have Papercraft Pokémon Sundays back in 1997 (largely because it's something I just made up as an excuse to post old papercraft Pokémon every week if I don't forget 😉) but here's a Pokémon that would have been #226 in cute papercraft form made by DeviantArtist MagicBunnyArt: a chubby, tiger-like Kotora! 🐯😃

The World War II Japanese Imperial Navy I-400 class submarine was so big, that it could carry three Aichi Seiran aircraft and launch them from its deck!

Subnautica is a game all about underwater exploration, and do you know what's the best part about Metalfist making three free papercrafts from this game? 😍
"That there are three cool new free papercrafts to download and build and enjoy?"
Well yeah, I guess, but what I really meant, is that it provides an opportunity for me to make my favourite joke, about it being a bad idea taking water-themed papercrafts in the actual water...! 😎😎

From coming Friday March 8 2019, you can get some Nippon Ichi goodies when you visit the PG cafe in Nagoya to celebrate the upcoming Japanese release of Nippon Ichi's new RPG Destiny Connect!
There's some more information about the event on the following webpage (all in Japanese!) which shows you'll also be able to get a papercraft Prinny 🐧from Nippon Ichi's Disgaea series:
If you won't be able to get to the PG cafe though, you can still download the Prinny papercraft yourself from the Nippon Ichi website - only you'll have to print it yourself! 😉
