    I like papercrafts. I’ve been doing it since I was probably six and recently got back into it. I saw @ThunderDestron post one of his 3-D ones and got creeped out by our familiar hobby. So I’m going to slowly show off stuff I’ve made over the years, like this guy:

    Cute, eh?
    Right now, my mission is to make a paper replica of the original Megatron toy.
    My hastily made notes:

    My reference books:

    And my size references are from video reviews and to TR Megs based on this image:

    And I hope this can be the start to a place I can share my crap.

    Alright, since I’m on a trip, I’ve got time to work on Megs. After you have the design of the figure in your head and you know how it’ll work, start drawing some basic shapes in pencil.

    It’s been a while, so I whipped up a Lego add-on. A club for Impactor! Start with these pieces:
    C7F546FC-46CE-4DA3-93D3-4762CA2A9BF7.jpeg
    Here are size comparisons for the rods, make sure they are correct!
    330E5E34-F59D-40CE-B8E4-C072C2EC8947.jpeg
    Put a cone on the end of the ridged rod and begin pushing all three cogs in.

    Put on the other cone.
    AD20E266-3B62-4DBF-87DB-FD8B6CA5CC61.jpeg
    Insert the rod and push a technic piece to the top.
    F08A5D8D-3250-4371-9A8E-E2B71B6B263B.jpeg
    Put it in the figure’s hand. There should still be a piece left over.
    D9ADF542-2720-44E9-9DA6-D5879FC3AE12.jpeg
    Push the last technic piece on the end and you have yourself Impactor’s Marvel G1 club!

    In actuality, I'm home from my trip, so I've got to readjust to, y'know, normal life. Soon though! Soon...

    If papercrafts come unassembled and without colour, does that mean they are model kits? Am I insane?
