This model is part of a larger series of paper craft designs themed around arcade classics. The paper toy range was originally designs as part of a book pitch, the book would include 20 video game themed designs. All of the models developed for the pitch shared a clean, flat graphical style with bold colours and the occasional 80’s inspired texture to break up large shapes. After many years of back and forth on the books development it became apparent the project wouldn’t be published in part due to the complicated legality of creating characters based on existing properties. Rather than let the models disappear into a design archive the models were fixed up and made available as free downloads.
This model features an interesting action feature. When it’s facing the right way up the model is rigid, you can pick it up and it will stay as a solid log shape, however if the model is upside down the model becomes limp and will “play dead”.
