…Graphig Paper Toys, ready to conquer the world!…
A few weeks ago, I was telling you about what is certainly going to be a big trend of the hobby world in 2013 : Graphig Paper Toys.
Mixing traditionnal origami (japanese paper craft) with pop design and popular anime characters, Graphig Paper Toys are fun to assemble and great to look at.
A small (and free!) exhibition is held right now at the Pixiv Zingaro space in the Nakano Broadway. Every piece created in the Graphig collection can be seen while a few exclusive items have been created for the occasion.
There is also a ‘create your own graphig’ contest. Blank pre-cut Graphig boards are available for anyone to draw his own design and assemble a new figure. The winner will have his toy as the newest addition to the catalogue.
But enough with the talking, let’s look at some pictures :
I couldn’t resist and brought two characters at the office. The whole assemblage part took around 15 minutes for each one and the paper figures simply looks beautiful!
