Staff Pick

It feels so good to get back to basics. Get some paper, fold and glue it, and you can create any number of amazing creatures. Julius Perdana's new book, Build Your Own Paper Robots, goes way beyond paper-crane origami. The CD with this book has hundreds of "mecha model designs" and templates to print out and assemble. Bold, colorful illustrations show you exactly how to build the robot designs, from beginner level to advanced. This book is like a Slinky: It's fun for all ages, for geeky girls or boys.

Publisher Comments:

Have you ever watched the Autobots battle the evil Decepticons in Transformers and wished you could be in on the action? Now you can create a world of fantastic paper robots that you can color, print, and build yourself with this amazing book and CD combo. It has everything you need to complete the fantasy--thorough step-by-step assembly instructions and illustrations are in the book, while the CD has 14 ready-to-print, customizable robot templates.

Colors, designs, and size can be manipulated using any standard editing package so you can create over 250 variants for a full robot army. The models print out on letter-sized paper and are assembled using rubber bands or fishing line, it's that easy! There are even templates for a cityscape suitable for crushing or a Super Dimension- type fortress for a robot takeover.

From shape-changing Transformer-types to chunky Gundam-esque mobile suits, there's mecha for makers of all skill levels. So if you're a first-time model maker or just a fan of robots, anime, and manga, there's bound to be the perfect project waiting for you in Build Your Own Paper Robot.
