Papercraft is a form of art in which beautiful and sometimes complex models are constructed out of nothing but some paper and tape (or glue). While the beginning may just seem like a bunch of pieces of cut paper, the end result however, can be breathtaking.

Papercraft can come from official sources, such as Takara Tomy, when they made a set of couches for their Arms Micron figures to sit on, which can be seen here. Or Takara Tomy's Energon cube insert for Masterpiece Soundwave, which can be seen here. Heck, they even made a trailer for their version of Weaponizer Optimus Prime in their Arms Micron line!

The Transformers Wars Papercraft book lets you buy models that are motorized and made to battle!

However, the magic really happens when the fans put their imaginations to good use and work outside the confines of corporate papercraft options and create something fun and awesome, such as the Chibi Jet Vehicons, which you can see here.

If you're looking for a masterpiece of Transformers papercraft, look no further!

A Facebook share from fellow TF fan Laurent Guelton to our Facebook page has revealed a beautiful work he created out of papercraft.

War For Cybertron Optimus Prime looks to be that papercraft masterpiece and even has articulated fingers! Started in 2011, this project has been a labor of love for Laurent and it's taken him nearly three years to make this happen. Not only is it now completed and he wants to share the showcase of his work, but he also included the files necessary for you to create your own!

I deliberately cut the model into several parts, for ease of viewing files during installation, but also a question of weight ... file textures are accurate, but suddenly it eats bytes!
The finished robot is about 40cm (15.75 inches) high. You can choose between hands for hinged wildest of you ... oops ... and simplified in the extreme (just 4 blocks) hands.


We've mirrored a few of the images and provided links to the files here, but we'd like for you to visit his blog to see the entire figure and read his post on how it all came to be. You can do that by clicking this link: http://paperlaul.com/blog/2014/04/optim ... robot.html (Please note that the blog is in French, you'll need a translation tool to read it in your language. Google Chrome has one built right in.)

Now I see what's up. Before, all those links underneath the pics weren't showing up as links at first. But now they are.

Holy crap, that is amazing o_O
This, next to the insane Movie Starscream, has got to be the most bafflingly detailed Papercraft Transformers I have ever seen. :APPLAUSE:

That is pretty cool. There is another Optimus Prime papercraft out there as well that is amazing. I constructed it from their free downloads. He stands around 3-4 feet tall.

Kirby, Those are areas that are covered up by other pieces. Often that is where the glue is applied. If you are going to try making this I recommend printing on heavier stock paper, Typically card stock around 65 pound. There is an excellent tutorial over at http://www.papercraftmuseum.com/. I would recommend downloading a small model first before trying something this big. Technique plays a big roll in the final outcome.

Wow, it looks great! Making such a complex papercraft takes a lot of time and patience, but it was definitely wothed it. Some time ago I also made few papercrafts, like my 40 inch transforming G1 Grimlock:)
