Once upon a time, at a galaxy far far away...you can make battle droids out of PAPER!!!!

I know many of you are preparing for halloween...well...even if you aren't you can make yourself a futuristic life sized BATTLE DROID! Star wars has always been my favorite movie series and it has so much cool stuff!! Everything in star wars is a glimpse into the future.So this battle droid will be made out of purely paper and glue, you don't have to be a Jedi or Darth Vader to do this. Now I will leave the making to you. Have fun! And: May the Force Be With You. .

Step 1: Preparing and Meterials.

1.First you will need a free template viewing software, Download it through this link below: http://www.tamasoft.co.jp/pepakura-en/download/vie...

2.Then you will need templates that you will then print on paper. The Files attached.

3.Open the files in the software and print out the templates.(Best works to drag the files into the software).

4.You will need some glue. Pva glue works best on these projects.

5.A xacto knife.

6.Some A4 Paper. (Any thinness works, the thicker the stronger your battle droid will be).

Step 2: Print Those Templates! and Start Cutting.

Once you get the templates printed out you can start cutting out the templates. (Remember to cut them strictly according to the solid lines so your out come would be more accurate.

Tips.

Only cut the templates for the parts that you are making.

The picture above shows what lines are mountain or valley folds.

You may adjust the thickness of the lines in Pepakura viewer.

Step 3: Start Putting the Cutout Templates Together.

After you have cut the templates out you may start to glue your parts together.

Don't apply too much glue on the tabs or the paper may be saoked and will rip easily.

The glue may sometimes be frustrating so...just a little paitience will help : )

Keep repeating the cuting and glueing steps for other parts.

Step 4: Final Assembly

Now for assembly you will have to just put the joints of the arms and legs and head together and your battle droid is almost finished and ready for battle...well..not really battle. But it'll be a stunning statue of the battle droid that you can place around the house or bring it out on halloween parties.

Hope you enjoyed!

<p>This is amazing! Well done!</p>
<p>I downloaded the program you recommended, but I was not able to grab the files you created. I tried dragging them but it did not work. Please help</p>
<p>Have you tried dragging them to both sides of the window? Because sometimes only one side of the window works for dragging files in.</p>
<p>I've looked at the Templates, they do not include the Head details, like the eyes and the lines on the ''face'', am I correct?<br>If I am, how did you do the facial Details on your Paper Droid?</p>
<p>You are correct. The templates don't have head and eye details.</p><p>What I did was I made stencils and coloured it on the droid.</p>
<p>Does anyone have this in PDF form?</p>
<p>Amazing! So how many pieces of paper does this use?</p>
<p>it looks to be 218 pages of A4 cardstock.</p>
<p>This is fantastic! </p><p>Did you design the files? They look excellent. I'd love to make one of these at some point. Thank you for sharing this!</p>
<p>you must have lot of patience man, great done. truly amazing </p>
<p>Thanks.</p>
<p>evry one of the files is printed on A4</p><p>Buste-A4<br>Jambes_A4<br>Sac-A4 <br>everything really</p>
<p>Yeah, all of the files are printed in A4. I am sorry if you were after letter sized paper.</p>
