905: (355/365) Emperor Palpatine

Posted by wonko on December 21, 2017 in 365-2017, humanoid, scifi |

I am sure you remember the good old days, when things were better. In the Star Wars Universe this meant Luke, Leia and Han battling the dark side of the force wearing cheesy costumes, in squeeky clean spaceships, among a rain of pew pew pew: The truth is there were no “good old days”, they […]

898: (348/365) The Droid You Were Looking For

Posted by wonko on December 14, 2017 in 365-2017, fantasy, geometry, machine, scifi, wtf |

Now I am as much a Star Trek fan as the next one, and love a comedy sidekick movie plot device. It was interesting that the Star Wars franchise returned to the tried and true “quirky beeping droid” sidekick in “Force Awakens” and the BB8 droid seems a cute successor to the more limited R2 […]

897: (347/365) Deathstar

Posted by wonko on December 13, 2017 in 365-2017, fantasy, geometry, scifi, seasonal |

Tomorrow in Oz the next chapter of the Star Wars saga opens in cinemas. I am not likely to see it until the crush of “real fans” abates but thought on the eve I would fold something relevant: This I have labelled “Deathstar” because it bears an uncanny resemblance to the space station the Liberator […]

762: (212/365) Free Hugs

Posted by wonko on July 31, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly, crustacean, fantasy, scifi, wtf |

Anyone who knows me realises I am a HUGE Alien fan (well, except for Alien 4 – The Apology) so I find it irresistible when I find an Alien-related fold: This is Makoto Anzai’s “Face Hugger”, a snarly hand-inspired ovipositor that is the precursor to a chestburster. Similar to Fernando Gilgado’s model, this one has a different […]

681: (131/365) Tim Rickman’s Xenomorph

Posted by wonko on May 11, 2017 in 365-2017, Crease Pattern, humanoid, scifi |

I am so excited that there is a new Alien Movie out today – Alien Covenant. Although I would dearly love to see it right now, I will have to wait until I am less busy and tired: Having already folded both Kade Chan‘s Xenomorph, Fernando Gilgado‘s Alien and Face-Hugger I was struggling to find something […]

674: (124/365) Red Leader Standing By

Posted by wonko on May 4, 2017 in 365-2017, fantasy, scifi, vehicle |

May The Fourth be with you. Now I must admit to being one of the original Star Wars nerds, seeing the films when first aired a number of times – they heralded a new style of Sci-Fi, a place where space was common place, space ships were clean and villains announced their evil plans with […]

660: (110/365) Riki Saito’s Alien

Posted by wonko on April 20, 2017 in 365-2017, humanoid, scifi, wtf |

It is late, I am tired, the first week back at the start of the term is exhausting but this little alien is looking after me: Folded from Japanese foil, it compliments yesterdays model. Incidentally today is a few days after the 56th anniversary of humans in space as Yuri Gagarin first left our atmosphere

659: (109/365) I WANT To Believe

Posted by wonko on April 19, 2017 in 365-2017, fantasy, humanoid, scifi |

Now I am not so conceited as to think that humans are the only intelligent life in the universe, but the more I understand about humans, the more I am convinced that the sure proof there IS intelligent life elsewhere is the fact that they have in no way attempted to contact us. Nothing. Not […]

611: (61/365) Pocket Godzilla

Posted by wonko on March 2, 2017 in 365-2017, dinosaur, fantasy, reptile, scifi |

I remember as a kid being a fan of most things science fiction, and loving Japanese monster movies particularly: There is something rather charming about a monster, effected by radiation, growing really big then being annoyed by greedy people, subsequently reeking havoc on highly populated areas of Japan.

609: (59/365) Leia Organa

Posted by wonko on February 28, 2017 in 365-2017, fantasy, humanoid, scifi |

“Help me Obi Wan Kenobie, you’re my only hope’: This is my second attempt at Tadashi Mori’s “Leia”, a fun fold that does so much with a tortured little piece of paper.
