Design Urban papercraft

Shin Tanaka x Giant Robot x Scion

When I started to write about this Griant Robot there was not a site for it; now there is: Gaint Robot Shin.
This website is for a contest: “Customize the template with your own designs”.
But before you start designing: you need to read the rules (.pdf)…. But to make a long story short: basically you need to live in the USA, which I don’t do)

But the best stuff is yet to come: the template that are in the magazine can be downloaded form there:
part 1, part 2, part 3 and the blank template.

I’ve been asked to talk about this subject…… yeah this title is ohhh soooo original.

I though about it for a while (do I really want to make free advertising for a car company or a magazine?), but I couldn’t resist: Shin Tanaka is involved.
And that dude is cool!!

Shin is featured in an Asian/Amercan popculture magazine Giant Robot with a 3 piece robot: this image is the second one that can be found in Issue 57 of Giant Robot magazine.

Buy magazine 56, 57, 58 and you will have this:
Three robots combined by Shin Tanaka
How cool is that!

I’ve been looking around in the stores in Amsterdam, but I haven’t found this magazine (yet). So I can’t build it 🙁 and those who can’t build, write about it…. 😀

The same thing about Scion, this brand isn’t sold in the Netherlands (perhaps it is, but I don’t know about it, and I have never seen one).

But if Scion is happy with this post, and want to reward me, just give me a xB (no, really!!)
