Man creates life-size Samus Aran papercraft
IAmThatOneGuy enjoys making papercraft, but what compelled him to create a near 7 foot tall Metroid Prime 2 Samus even eludes him. Maybe it was because he recently obtained the models from the game or it could be because he wanted to appeal to that that one crazy fan that would pay anything for it. Either way here it is, but sans the fan.
This was up for auction on ebay, but only managed to find a buyer at $10.50 Canadian (good thing it had a reserve price!). Maybe IAmThatOneGuy will get lucky when/if this post leads someone from ScrewAttack to find him and give him all of their monies. Or at least it nets him a few more comments on his flickr set. I think he should have put this on Etsy, but whatever... I hope you enjoyed the pictures. Oh, and thanks Sam!
You are so talented dude! I salute your talent. That’s say crazy if you are crazy about anything than you do everything about it. ultrasound technician
Maybe I will. No need to be a jerk about it though. Seriously.
so there for who are these people you insult for not buying the statue? seems to me like no one even knew and if you would have bid crazy amounts contact the seller and make a deal.
Whoa there, no need to throw the venom at me. I would have bid crazy amounts on it, had I known this was out there. Honestly, I only just found out.
The sad part out of all of this is that the "super crazy fan" didn't even buy it so how it's just laying there in his house.
very nice, and he got the her height pretty spot on. (unlike recent Team Ninja making her smaller) anyway, it's really impressive.
it looks amazing, but it just seems like too much work, I have enough trouble keeping my Posters in good enough condition when I move but something like this.... to much work. I can just easily see why it didn't sell. plus im canadian and there was hate in the air.
Ah alright I get it, sorry I just thought you wanted to insult him because well he made something really great and lots of effort into it.
Well I suppose if he made it out of wood..... naaaah lol.
I am saying he wasted his time making an epic craft project. I dont want anything like that in my house and I doubt anyone else does, plus its probably super fragile and it would likely get damaged during travel. If he planned to sell it he should have made it out of better material and in colour.
He should probably color it first. It's amazing now, but with a little color...
He should have Nintendo Power showcase it. Cool stuff like this makes it in every issue.
Because YOU can totally do exactly like that for less right? /sarcasm. This man put effort in his creation and I say it's worth more than 10$ but it's your opinion if it's not worth it or not.
Well damn, maybe if it was a paper craft of Ridley I would buy it.
This is one amazing project. He needs to get a better selling price.
no color or shipping, I wouldn't have even given him $10.
anyone could have bid on this including yourself, so god damn you for not understanding how much this stuff is worth and blaming others for your own failures.
he could probably ship it out if he broke up the pieces a bit, the only way ur going to get this to auction off at a high price if if you show up at conventions and hold an auction there
$40 is a very modest price for shipping a package that is 7 feet tall, i've seen packages go out for $50 for a moving box
He should have colored it, then maybe it would sell better.
I am envious of your /\/\4|) 5|<1|_|_5 dude. Very nicely done, and 10 bucks? From a Canadian? God dammit, the kids these days...not understanding how awesome and how much this stuff is worth...might be paper, but that shit is golden.
