    SHIN Tanaka Mega-Post! 

    Everyone’s favorite paper toy maker has been busy with making moves in the toy world, taking his beloved paper creations to the world of 3D vinyl.

    First up is a 15cm T-BOY Vinyl by One-Up.  Both have removable shirts & have ample options for customization.





    Next up is an online show curated by Shin himself.  We Don’t Need Fake brings together 7 designers and paper-smiths for a online gallery show of sorts. To view the show, check out this website: http://www.wedontneedfake.co.cc/

    Clicking on the link takes you to the site, where you can download one of seven different paper toy templates, in kind of a blind box style random selection.  Sounds liek fun, really.


    Finally, Shin has collaborated with artist David Horvath of Ugly Dolls fame for a special HOOPHY paper toy template. Click the pic to download the template.


    So, big things going down for the homie Shin. Big ups to him and all his recent success with these collabos and the Scion project.

    You can check out the rest of his toy collection at the Shin Tanaka website.

    Scion x Shin Tanaka x Giant Robot 


    Shin Tanaka, everyone’s favorite paper toy maker, has been commissioned by Scion to create this amazing “4 in 1” toy with Giant Robot.

    Normally, you’d be able to hit up Shin’s website and download the latest paper toy.  But, they took all the guesswork out for you by printing the template onto high quality paper.  This saves you ink and time, two things you’re gonna need a lot of.

    The idea behind this is that Giant Robot will release 3 paper toys, one each in issues 56, 57, and 58.

    Once you put all three of them together, you’re supposed to combine all three to create a fourth robot, which you see above.

    The first template (in Issue 56):


    Second Template (in Issue 57, OUT NOW):



    The last piece, the Third Template, will be out on February 9th.  So, get prepared for that.

    You can find Giant Robot at all good newsstands and book stores.
