    I didn't see this listed already, so I wanted to draw attention to this model in case any of our talented folks are interested.

    Paper Model is a non-transforming version of Movieverse Optimus Prime in Truck mode w/ trailer. Completed model is only about 18" or so I believe.

    Not yet, I've printed out the parts but I need to finish up my Gundam Unicorn by the same designer first.


    I guess since I didn't do any work on this, that makes sense.

    I've seen papercraft stuff before, and they look really awesome when they're done correctly! You could even go a step further and use something thicker than paper like cardstock for a project like this.

    Most papercrafters use about 120lb cardstock. I can't even imagine trying to build a model like this with regular printer paper. The thing would be so fragile you would be in constant risk of crushing it as you worked on it.
