I've been working on a paper craft ecosystem with a focus on characters with interchangeable accessories like hats, backpacks and tools. If you have any feedback on the designs or characters you'd like to see me make, let me know. You can also customise the blank template to make characters of your own. When I release a new character for download I'll post a picture here (unless I forget). Happy folding.

>>607016Cool idea you got there op. Mind sharing templates for them. Look interesting enough to give them a try.
>>607024Sorry, I tried uploading a .zip with all the templates so far in it but it wasn't supported, all of the templates are available through the link in this post though >>607017>>607016New friend - Black Panther's 'Killmonger' in his heist outfit.

>>607533My guy looks like MR.T
>>607016OP do you have a website or IG? These are adorable!
>>607598Read the second post in this thread. I know reading is hard...
>>607016>>607054>Samus Aran (Metroid)Thanks for the great suggestion, here's Samus as a Fold Up Friend. I had to design a new character template that added two new accessory ports on the sides so I could add removable shoulder armour. The toy also includes a removable helmet (mask?) and arm cannon. Happy folding!>>607575>My guy looks like MR.TNoooo. I'll make a toy of Mr.T just to prove you wrong...>>607627No need to be mean, it's my fault I should have included the link in the main post, no one will be looking at the second post in a thread like this.
>>607627Damn, who shit in your coffee this morning?
>>607632That´s be great actually
>>607016For female characters maybe add lashes. Look at tsum tsum characters for references. I would also really like to see these printed with a good quality paper and a better printer. i feel like the colors are dull?

Sorry for the lack of requests being fulfilled, I'm just doing this in my spare time for a bit of fun, I've got a few days off coming up so I'll try to design some new characters :)>>607632I updated this Samus toy to make the visor a little bigger, the face more visible and add a little wearable Metroid alien accessory. Link : https://folduptoys.com/fold-up-friends/>>607656>I would also really like to see these printed with a good quality paper and a better printer. i feel like the colors are dull?I agree that the colours in the images are a bit dull, but I don't think the issue is the paper or printer, but rather the photos themselves. I'm not a great photographer and I'm struggling to figure out how to get them to look nice but also keep the colour consistent between shots. I've put together a rotating plate and been watching a lot of tutorials so hopefully the images will slowly start looking nicer and then when I figure out how to make them look good consistently, I'll re-photograph all the older designs so everything matches (pic rel)>>607673I don't know much about Dino Crisis or Resident Evil, but it would be a lot of fun to design a couple of human characters and some of the bigger monsters like Nemisis or Lady Dimitrescu. I'll add them to the list.
It'd be cool if you made any character from GOTMaybe the Hound with a dog helmet and sword
I really like the cute design and the fact that the models are customizable. It's fairly easy to fold too. I have a problem with my printer at the moment so maybe I'll try to color the basic template with markers. Nice work, anon!
I made one of Tala the Alien which I don't think anyone will understand, but they're very cute anyway.>>607924I've never watched GOT, but that helmet design looks rad, so I'll put it on the list as it'll force me to figure out how to make helmets work within the system.>>607926Thank you!
>>607016Anon anon anon anona im begging you can you make one without fold lines
>>608346[A] edit it yourself[B] go ask directly https://folduptoys.com/contactalex/
I made a couple of Trick-o-Treaters for Halloween, they have removable/interchangeable masks. Have a spooky time /po/>>608346How would you recommend I indicate where to fold without the fold lines? Have you got an examples that can help?

Are you still making them? I'd love to craft more of these little dudes
>>608939Yeah I'm still making them, I just got really busy with work and I'm too exhausted from designing papercrafts all day to want to make more in my free time. It always gets super busy towards Christmas and then calms down in the new year, so I'm hoping to have some new Fold Up Friends out soon including the 'big fella' template for characters like Hulk etc.
>>607016>>609012These are awesome! Thanks for sharing! I know you already got a lot of requests and you probably have other characters in mind too but personally I'd really like a Wreck-It Ralph friend. He could be another character for the "big fella" template, too!
>>609012any update on fold up friends
>>611025>any update on fold up friendsNot really, sorry. I'm still super busy with work, but that's a good thing. I've got 2 months off coming up, so I'm hoping I'll have some time to work on more relaxed projects like Fold Up Friends during that period. In the mean time, here's a Spider-Man toy I designed using a new template. The hands have been changed so they can hold more types of accessories (like things that point forwards from the hand) and it comes with an interchangeable 'maskless' face. I've not had time to photograph the template or put it up for download yet
>>611325I also put this Hulk template up for download to show off the 'big fella' template, but I'm not too sure how I feel about it just yet.
>>607016I got a little time to spare so I'm making some new Spider-Man friends. You can take off their masks (kind of) to show their fleshy human faces :)
