I recently stumbled across a gold mine when I found a website for Cubeecraft (pronounced “kyoob-ee”) papercraft toys. You can download, print, cut out and assemble your own favorite geek characters… for FREE!
I’ve included a mere tiny collection of what can be found on Cubeecraft’s website.
Star Wars Stormtrooper
Doctor Who – The 11th Doctor
Doctor Who Tardis
Doctor Who Dalek
Star Trek – Spock
They don’t just do geek characters either!
Aqua Teen Hunger Force – Frylock
