If you're into paper toys, there are a variety of ways to participate. You can purchase any one of the numerous books featuring some of the best designers in the game, you can scour the web for free templates, or you can make your own. As much as I love making a Shin Tanaka, or a Matthew Hawkins, nothing beats the satisfaction of bringing something of my own from an idea to a free standing toy...

There are paper toys, and then there are papertoy monsters, and then there's Marko Zubak [aka YeboMaycu.] Marko makes papertoy monster art. In fact, you can dispense with the whole papertoy thing and cut straight to the chase. It's art, pure and simple. And the form he's been exploring since 2007 with the original Pinn Guin [an actual penguin] has yielded some delicious design within a shape...

We don't post as much 3A stuff on our blog as we probably should do, and personally i think they produce so many figures nobody could possibly own them all without committing financial suicide. Enough about my 3A issues cos this Blind Cowboy & Ghost Horse by Ashley Wood is awesome.

This one's been a long time coming, though really i guess most Kidrobot projects have been in the idea stage for a looong time but the UK series was quite a while ago now, back in Jan 2009! So thank god this dunny has come out lookin awesome and isn't an exact replica of the Rainy Day Dunny Triclops designed back then.

Taking inspiration from Belgian surrealist Rene Magritte's self...

Sarah Bush either;

A) Had a really messed up childhood.

B) Has one of the most whacked imaginations.

C) Possesses a healthy love for zombies

D) Is one of the coolest girls any nine year old boy would ever hope to invite to their birthday party.

Maybe it's all of the above. How else to explain the crazed impulse that led her to take a time honored toy and...

Marshall Alexander has a way with paper. More than just static figures, his characters are always doing something. I first noticed this with his contributions to Papertoy Monsters. Whereas every other figure in that book was content with "being," Marshall wanted his to be doing. His latest production continues that theme. As a new contributor for Planet Pulp, he's been asked to add his effort...

Wallets at the ready! Dok A has been having a clearout in his studio and has decided to sell off some of the stuff he has lying around. Most of it is from the time before he became well known for his art-toy customs including various forms of sculpture work from finished display pieces to resin 'kit' characters, jewellery etc. There will be also be some original sculpts, toy prototypes and...
