    MOTU Papertoys

    Hi everybody, this is my first ever post on the forums and I thought I'd show you some of my MOTU papertoys. Shown here are the first 6 and I have sketches for pretty much the whole line and even the odd diorama or vehicle although this may be a bit ambitious!


    There are other He-man papertoys out there on the net but I thought I'd design some with my own style of artwork. They are mainly based around the vintage lines but you'll see some Filmation/2002/classic-inspired bits in there too. They may not be quite as beautiful as the Classic toys but have the advantage that if you sit on them/lose them/drop them in acid, you can just print another!

    I'm not sure if these belong in this forum rather than the art forum so apologies if i have that wrong.

    At the moment you can download the templates from my Flickr page but I may find a more appropriate place to store them as I do more. Please feel free to download them and have a go at making one yourself, I'd love to see photos of them on people's desks or something! Any feedback on the artwork or construction would be gratefully received. Some are tricker than others to assemble, let me know if further instructions would be useful. Happy crafting!

    Thanks everybody for the kind feedback, it's inspired me to get working on the next batch right away although I'll try and post a few more views of the first 6 as requested too.

    SkeletorsMistress, fast work! Those pics are great, really made me laugh the two He-Men squaring up (one's slightly squarer than the other obviously). They look kind of cool in the vintage toys actually, I never though of trying that.

    Hunter Knight, I suppose I could make some with backwards shoulders as a tribute, although if any of these have wobbly ankles it will be because they are made of paper so fair enough!

    Thanks everybody!

    Haha, true, just don't make them with destroyable crotches as an homage to green goddess lol!
