Transformable G1 Rumble papercraft in progress

    So, after I made the Soundwave paper model, I decided I would try to make some of my other favorite toys, Frenzy and Rumble, Soundwave's transformable cassettes! I was trying to make them so that they could fit into the Soundwave paper model. I'm sure they can, save for a little adjustment to enlarge Soundwave's chest cavity. Anyway, these are just work in progress pictures. I haven't picked this piece up in years, but one day I will finish it!

    The problem I'm having is with the spring up head. I've tried numerous things, like a paper spring, a sliding head, etc. but they don't seem to work. I might have to make the head removeable, i.e. you only put it in when in robot mode. Or I might just have to go with a metal spring.

    I was very pleased with the way the guns turned out!

    More G1 Rumble work in progress pictures

    Here are the last few pictures for now. I may continue working depending on your support. Let me know what you think. Should I keep going? Do you want this paper toy?

    Oh, FYI, the joints I make with needle and thread, the needle being a staple and the thread being a rubber band. I thread the staple through the rubber band. Then I tie knots on the end of it. I have another way to make joints that rotate, but for this, the size is probably too small. I also use coffee stirrers/small thin straws so that the paper joints don't collapse. I cut it into little segments and put it in the joint and thread the rubber band through it. The problem with using rubber bands is that they suffer from dry rot after a few years and with inevitably fall apart. At least they form nice tight joints and let you pose your figures while they last though.

    Thanks for looking!

    Don't say that!

    Please, don't be. You've nothing to be sorry about! Your model is great, and if it has joints that work, even better, man.
    Don't be sorry, be proud! :thumb:
