Mass Effect 1 Papercraft: SSV Normandy SR-1 Starship

I am in the mood for Mass Effect 2 papercraft ^^(see previous post). This paper model by DaiShiHUN is of the SSV Normandy SR-1 starship. According to the Mass Effect Wiki, the SR-1's purpose is "solo reconnaissance missions deep within unstable regions, using state-of-the-art stealth technology powered by an experimental drive core." The PDO template for this and several other Mass Effect 2 papercraft may be found here (Note: free Z-Zip software is required to open the template files)

Disney World Pizza Paper Toy

I have been slacking off on my pizza paper toy series. The last pizza toy I released was back in February 2010! Here is finally a new one. When you order a large pizza at any one of the many resorts at Walt Disney World in Florida it comes in a box with a picture of Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Donald and Pluto on the lid. This paper toy is a mini version of that box. The pizza inside is a plain cheese pizza, 'cause that what the little ones like best. :) The template for this paper toy may be downloaded here.

G1 Decepticon Papercraft: Laserbeak and Ravage

In the original 80's Transformers cartoon, the Decepticon Soundwave has the alternate form of a analog cassette tape player. Soundwave is able to eject various "Spy Cassettes" which transform into animal-like Decepticons. The paper models above are two of Soundwave's Spy Cassettes, Laserbeak and Ravage. Ravage is the work of Kook at the Paper Invaders website, while the creator of Laserbeak is unknown. The templates for the models may be downloaded here and here.

AvP Papercraft: Xenomorph Life Cycle

Noturno Sukhoi and Cuguel have teamed up to create a series of paper models that illustrate the life cycle stages of the xenomorphs seen in the Alien franchise of movies and video games. Pictured above are a sampling of the models available. Starting on the right and going counterclockwise, we have a xenomorph egg, a "face hugger", and a "chest burster". Although it is not stated on Noturno's website, these papercraft models appear to have been created from 3D models from one of the Aliens vs Predator (AvP) video games. Each of the above models is 1:1 scale and their templates may be downloaded here (Pepakura PDO format only). Also available on the same page are two 1:2 scale models of full grown xenomorphs.

Harry Potter Papercraft: Quidditch Field

Back in 2008, a German model railroading enthusiast (who is also a Harry Potter fan) wowed the online papercrafting community by releasing a complete N scale paper model of Hogwarts Castle. Part of the release included a paper model of the Quidditch Field at Hogwarts. The Quidditch Field is a papercraft gem that may have been overlooked by many people in the larger release of the castle, so today I am giving it the recognition I think it deserves. ^^ The template for the Quidditch Field may be found here along with the templates for the other buildings at Hogwarts.

Space Paranoids Arcade Cabinet Papercraft (Tron)

Here's a paper model by Cyberdrone of a fictional arcade cabinet for a fictional video game. ^^ The video game Space Paranoids appeared in the original Tron movie, but was never produced in real life (that is, if you don't include the custom cabinets at Flynn's Arcade in San Diego). Just the right scale for action figures, Cyberdrone's papercraft model of the Space Paranoids cabinet is based on the glue-less Cubeecraft method of construction. The template for the video coin-op may be downloaded here.
