    Howdy!
    This is my first thread post on here. I just wanted to upload some pictures of a 3D paper transformer I made.

    It doesn't have wheels. Just ignore that... Anyway it was kind of inspired by breakdown and clocker from Cybertron. My brother suggested that I call it a Genericon and I think that is a fitting name.

    It has issues standing upright so I am holding down the arms in the next picture.

    The whole thing is made out of notecards and is about 7 inches tall in robot mode. All of the hinges are paper and tape. Hope you guys like the pictures and feel free to critique it! My next project will hopefully be a 3D printed OC so watch out for that.

    Teaser images of that bot:

    When I was younger I probably made hundreds of paper transformers with my brother but they were all pretty much flat 2D. (vehicle mode was the top view of a car or plane and robot mode had a front and back). I have only made a handful of 3D ones and I haven't really made any paper transformers in YEARS. I just decided to start because of this "lockdown." <--Not the bounty hunter!

    WHAT THE FRAK I DO THE EXACT SAME THING!!!
    I did the 2-D ones as a kid and moved into 3-D later! Sometimes I still do 2-D's at the office when I'm bored. Should I post some?

    that just reminded me, when I was a wee young lad (around the age of five) I drew 2d transformers robot mode,(as well as star wars characters but that is a story for another day), anyways thank you for bringing back old memories, and thanks for the idea of making them like the robot powered machines we got in the movie verse line.

    edit: sorry for the wee young lad part.
