• dreammyst uploaded a new picture: Megaman and Mettaur March 30, 2011 12:02 pm

    My very own creations. The blue paper I was using at the moment reminded me of him so I decided to make it instead of the other model I was working on.

    Copied from my deviantart account: “Megaman is made up of about 1250 pieces. It prolly doesn’t look like it, but it’s because the helmet is separate from the rest of the body. It can be slipped on and off. I ran out of the dark blue paper…

    • My brother likes Megaman (the game) and since it’s his birthday in 8 days I showed him pictures of 3d origami that I could make him, and he said that he would like the Mettaur in this picture the most. I would like to make it, but it’s difficult because I don’t know how many pieces you used to make the base of it’s black head-body thing and how many you used for the base of the hat and the feet… Can you please tell me how many pieces you used at those bases ? It would really help ! Thanks…

      • Oooh, sounds likes he has good taste in videogames. =P Here are some rough instructions for now.

        Yellow: 182 Green: 20 White: 16 Black: 56 (If using base 12)

        Hat: Base 18. 1-3 Yellow. 4th add one green piece. 5th one yellow, two green, one yellow, rest green. 6-7 Yellow.
        Each foot: 19 pieces in 2-3-4-3-2-3-2 pattern. No side edges sticking out. You can improvise on these though. They’ll also prolly have to be glued to the head.
        Head: Umm, I originally used construction paper so it’s wider than it would normally be. In that case I used base 12. If you’re using normal paper I would say use base 14. Okay, 1. black. 2. W – 2xB – W, rest black. 3. 2xW – B- 2xW, rest black. 4. W – B – 2xW – B – W, rest black. 5. 2xW – B- 2xW, rest black. 6. B – W – 2xB – W – B, end. This is so the hat tilts a little towards the back. Next you wanna add 2 sets of nubs, I guess, to lie in between the feet to account for the height of the feet. On the bottom, in between the eyes, add two pieces, then add a third piece below it. Repeat on the back.

        Lastly, assemble. You can improvise to make it work for you. Good thing you didn’t ask about Megaman. D= Good luck~

        • This helps ALOT ! Thanks !!! I appreciate it. I will start making it once I’m finished my origami koi . I hope I will have enough time to make it before his birthday… Thanks again !

    • Wow! I like this! They look great! Nice job!

    • I also like how you glued on the arms and legs so neatly without them expanding at the top. Did you use a glue gun? I can only glue 3D arms and legs if I use a glue gun, if I use Elmer’s washable glue they’ll just expand or drop.

      • I used plain Elmer’s multipurpose glue to attach the arms for this model. It hasn’t fallen apart yet. =] I used a glue gun for the bear I made for mother’s day.

    • I made some instructions for it in a response above. =]

    • lol im a big fan of megaman this is great

    • i like it nice job, keep up the good work
