A winged horse that was said to be the son of Poseidon and Medusa and an aid to the gods. Pegasus has been used prominently in both movies (Jason and The Argonauts, Hercules, etc.) and video games (God of War II). Canon Creative Park just released this Pegasus papercaft under the Lucky Items section of their site - I guess to coincide with the coming new year celebration. You can also check out an adorable giant panda papercraft on the animals section and a papercraft ship - the Sagres II, a Portuguese Navy training vessel.

From the creator of the Master Chief papercraft here is a character featured in both Conker: Live and Reloaded" and Conker's Bad Fur Day - Gregg the Grim Reaper. This will go along well with the Conker papercraft model that also came out from here just a few months back. You might also want to check out the other new model, not really related to Conker, it's an Invader ZIM papercraft featuring the main character GIR.

The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show was an alternative name for two separate American cartoon shows: Rocky and His Friends and The Bullwinkle Show. The lead characters for this 1960's cartoon classic is comprised of Rocket "Rocky" J. Squirrel and his best bud Bullwinkle J. Moose. The setting of the show is on a fictional town called Frostbite Falls, Minnesota. The villains of the show included Boris Badenov and Natasha Fatale hailing from the fictional country of Pottsylvania, under the command of the Fearless leader and Mr. Big. The Webdude has created another great set of cartoon papercraft models - of the four main characters. This set is available exclusively for free download at the PaperModelers web site.

Here's a little something to do during your Christmas/winter holiday break, I'm giving away an original Chokipeta papercraft kit, it's from an old Playstation 2 tank simulation strategy game from Sega/Sammy Entertainment called Standard Daisenryaku: Dengekisen released in Japan 2004.
It goes with the series of free Chokipeta-designed papercrafts from this site. The kit is unopened so I don't know how many pages are in it, I'm also not a tank expert so feel free to correct me if I'm wrong with my guess - that this is a Tiger 1 (Panzerkampfawagen VI Ausf. E) tank. The rules are pretty simple, just take a picture of you with your favorite papercraft/s - the theme is "Happy Holidays". Feel free to use any of your relatives or pets as props. You have to include a sign that says Paperkraft.net in the photo for authentication purposes. Send your entries to paperkraftsATgmailDOTcom with the title "Chokipeta Tank". One entry per email, entries close on December 31. Merry Christmas!

During my lunch break I was trying to catch up with my daily gaming news when I noticed this blog post. It's a Christmas card from video game developer/publisher Atlus U.S.A (株式会社アトラス) sent to Kotaku editor Mike Fahey, it shows Jack Frost right smack in the middle surrounded by Atlus employees sporting Jack's familiar blue headgear/joker hat. This reminded me that there's a Jack Frost papercraft model from way back (5 yrs ago) that's still available for free download at the Atlus Japan web site. Some facts about Jack - he's considered a snowman, so for those of you that have been requesting for a snowman papercraft, this is probably the closest I could find for this year. Jack's favorite catchphrase is "Hee-Ho", he became quite popular when he appeared on the RPG video game series Shin Megami Tensei (真・女神転生|). Happy "Hee-Ho" Holidays indeed.
To get to the goods click on the link below, click on Special, then click on the 3rd selection down on the first column. If you don't feel like browsing through the Japanese site, just click the other link for a direct download (mediafire).

Here's another Christmas papercraft set, this time it's from Yamaha.

We'll start with Canon 3D's Creative Park, they've got a whole bunch of Christmas crafts that include dioramas, pop-up cards, banners, mask, and paper ornaments.

She'sthe heroine of the Disney Channel cartoon series of the same name and your typical teenager, fashionista, cheerleader, straight-A student, and Super Agent! She saves the world from supervillains together with her goofball sidekick Ron, tech guy Wade, and of course, everyone's favorite naked mole rat, Rufus. Have fun building this one.
