Samurai Sentai Shinkenger - Origami Mecha Papercraft


Samurai Sentai Shinkenger Origami Mecha PapercraftI'll start this post by saying that there are no templates, yet ^^

So Toyoppe just finished his amazing Origami mecha papercrafts based on the newest Super SentaiSuper Sentai Series (superhero team) to hit Japan - Samurai Sentai Shinkenger. The new show has a samurai theme to it and makes uses of elemental, animal, and kanji theme for each of the Shinkenger's powers.

The team fights demonic beings known as Gedoushu, who, just like the other 30+ Super Sentai series bad guys, is trying to take over the world. The Shinkenger each have their own mechanical sentient beasts known as Origami, they're like shikigami (familiar spirits). The Origami start out on Emblem Mode - about the size of your hand/fist. Then when it's time to fight, the Origami transform into animals or Animal Mode - they can grow as big as a building (mecha mode) so that the Shinkenger can pilot them. And when they need extra oomph, the Origami mechas transform into one giant mecha known as Shinkenoh (has 4 forms).

Here's a breakdown: Name - Color - Shape - Animal - Element/Weapon
