"A legend states that JIRACHI will make true any wish that is written on notes attached to its head when it awakens."
This one has had a long journey of small edits and modifications. Although there were no major problems with the model, we somehow kept running into small little issues that we just couldn't let go. So, many edits and three testbuilds (see [link] and [link]) later, we have our final Jirachi. Combined designing effort from ~z8-0 (aka Brandon) and ~P-M-F. Thanks guys.
The model will come with optional 3rd Gen type wings (designed by ~P-M-F) if you prefer that incarnation, and blank wish ribbon strips so you may write down your own wishes. And, no, I don't think Jirachi will mind if it's not in Kanji.
Jirachi is set to make your wishes come true soon Paperpokes. [link]
I am not sure exactly why I adore this Pokémon, but I really do. Maybe it's because a glare from its single scarlet eye makes even burly grown-ups freeze in utter fear. Or maybe because it is said to spirit away disobedient children. Whatever it is, I this Poke.
I've been asking for this one from the Paperpokés designers for quite a while. So guess who was a very happy test builder when PMF finally made one.
Will be released at Paperpokés [link] when the time is right.
A little while ago, we at Paperpokés received this request:
SHUCKLE SONG by ~LegoMyFoot But i have something better, you see? Why dont you make shuckle, just for me? hes really cool, and has white spots! if you made it, i would worship you a lot! Hes a mold pokemon, but that does not matter. At least hes not glass so when you drop it he shatters! he has yellow arms, and a nice red shell, so if you made it it would do us all well! SHUCKLE! YEAH! SHUCKLE! YEAH! If he gets in his shell, he can spin and attack, if he does it quick enough, he might just make the ground crack! He has two beady eyes, which he uses to see, if you wait long enough, he might warm up some tea!
This little Poke is special in ways I can't say here but as you can see a song has even been written about him.
Not many, even the world of Pokémon has Ledyba, this little guy with big eyes. Well, actually, not so little cause it's supposedly 3'03", so it's actually bigger than Squirtle and just as big as Wartortle. O.o
Ledyba, the papercraft though will come in at 12 cm. Watch out for it at the usual place, Paperpokés [link]
I turtles. And Turtle Pokémon are no exception. So, when Brandon made this model, it jumped up to the top of my WIP pile.
I'm really happy how this one turned specially because I forgot to turn on the overflow paint in Pepakura and I got a bit petrified since I've gotten used to using it since the Pokédolls.
Medium difficulty build. Big, fluffy tail means you need weights to make it stand up. Even though the tail almost touches the ground, it doesn't quite, it's raised maybe 2 mm above. I added a penny inside the bottom of it's front shell.
...And it seems that MiniBulbasaur and MiniTurtwig want to pick a fight with the wrong, BIG, guy!!!
Hi there! Just an update to let you know that I'm back from vacation, and I've finished Flareon!!! Better/more Paperpoke-ish looking pics will come, but I had a busy and funny day, so I've whipped this picture up to show how flareon turned out.
Flareon: 3D modelling by Brandon, unfolding/build by me. MiniBulbasaur and MiniTurtwig: the gashapons from which I got them!
These are Brandon's Sunflora, keep an eye out for them on your blog [link] around May.
Together they have a grand total of 30 cents (in 5¢ pieces) inserted into them for stability.
The reason why there are so many of them is because of this:
The one on the right was the prototype, and had major falling backwards issues. The only way to make it stand independently was to glue a penny into the end of each arm and glue one on the inside of it's bottom - 15¢.
The second one on the left was the final version, but I accidentally glued the two bottom sections of it's neck on back to front, which gives it a sky-gazer posture. This one also has a penny glued to the inside of it's groin, just in case - 5¢.
Then the second one on the right has an alternate face texture. It's pose is finally correct, but I chose to glue the arms on upside down at the last minute. I accidentally glued a penny in the wrong spot (it's bottom) and had to use a counter balance penny on it's tummy, which you can just see the imprint of ... darn - 10¢.
And the one on the left is the final edit, finally built correctly!
I think that they look like they are having a wonderful conversation, don't you? Something like: "No seriously - it was THIS big!" *group laughter*
