    Hey! So I saw this a little while ago on Paperkraft:

    http://paperkraft.blogspot.ca/2010/10/papercraft-action-figure.html?m=1

    Does anyone have ANY idea how this thing is out together or designed? I've been trying to figure it our for awhile because I have a few 3d models if like to convert into articulated papercrafts, but I'm not sure how this is done! If anyone knows of a downloadable model that's similar that would be great too, as I couldn't find one.

    Thanks :)

    Found this and thought it might help...as I thought the original was a form of dowel in a box... dscn2277.jpg when the outer box is glued then the post is allowed to rotate..
    add that to a swivel type joint and movement is almost unlimited...
    jointphoto1012_2.jpg as far as changing the hands and feet etc.. I agree with Zathros...Magnets...the ones out of electric tooth-brushes are super strong!!
    Here is a file to play around with...
    10122.jpg Enjoy!...

    I used to build laser cubes used in manufacturing for alignment of machinery in assembly lines. They had these dime size magnets that if the caught the edge of you fingers, would clip off a chunk of flesh. They were downright dangerous!! Only slightly small that a dime, about 4 times as thick. :)

    Hey, I remember this. I think I have this in my collections. Now I remember there is a large scale female action figure and I don't think that one use internal skeleton. I think I have it.... hope I have it :D

    Found it. An co-worker in the office give it to many many many many moon ago to get me into paper modeling, I was a paper newbee back then and heavily in to Japanese garage kits. Now I am just an n00b. I still see that model in some pirate sites from time to time.

    3 of those attachments don't work. I wish you had bigger pictures of the first pic. It looks very interesting. :)
