Metapod Papercraft by Skele-kitty Metapod Papercraft by Skele-kitty
FINALLY!!! After many months of trial and error, we have a metapod to add to our lovely collection of Paperpokes [link] Pokemon models. Thanks to ~Jyxxie for this gorgeous model.

It's really very satisfying to have another complete evolution finished (i.e.: Caterpie [link] & Butterfree [link]).

This is a very simple looking model, BUT if you do not get the valley folds right, you'll end up with a pretty weird and sort of gimpy looking Metapod - trust me, my first build was lineless and it looked BAD.

So to prevent this issue from happening with those of you that choose to build the lineless version, I have cut up the template into more sections than actually necessary - to ensure that the valley folds are not overlooked - but the outcome is worth the extra pieces.

I dunno when it'll be released on Paperpokés, I haven't had time to check over our schedule, but it probably won't be until early next year, sometime.

Thank you, that's a lovely thing to say.

Although, in my opinion, Metapod really isn't the most amazing papercraft I've built, but I appreciate your compliment very much.

I know - but I was pretty overwhelmed because I'd never seen a papercraft pokemon at ALL, until Metapod, and now I'm in love with them - also, I think that my being able to admire the execution of Metapod is linked to the fact I always thought he was a bit useless - but you made me appriciate his design a lot more, and put me back into pokemon after a sad pokemon-less dry spell. So, I think it's amazing :la:

Yeah, that was a pretty funny scene.
Metapod is almost about as useless as Magikarp.
