M HOUNDOOM (Happy Halloween!)

229 / M Houndoom - Pokémon Papercraft
M Houndoom
Type: Dark/Fire
Species:  Dark Pokémon
Height: 1.9 m (6'03")
Weight: 49.5 kg (109.1 lbs.)
Interesting Facts: As Mega Houndoom, the ridges on its back thicken, and it gains additional, bone-like rings around the base of its tail. The rings on its tail have small spikes on top, causing them to resemble vertebrae. The ridge at the base of Mega Houndoom's neck is longer and curves forward towards its shoulders. Instead of a band with a skull pendant, there is a large, toothed structure around its neck. This bone-like formation has two large spikes on either side and three pointed teeth on the bottom. Mega Houndoom's horns now point straight up with a small, outward curve in the middle. The two bands on its hind legs have vanished, and those on its forelegs are broken in the front. Its claws are a dark red due to its ability to generate more heat. Finally, the tip of its tail is now split down the middle.

NOTES: Start at the mouth and glue the horns as you go. The next step is building the legs, build them from the paws up and glue the nails as you go. The leg bones may not need to be glued, place them and check if they stand. The hardest part of the model is building the bones. The neck one is by far the hardest. Start at the collar and build around it, join the bottom of it and close at the middle, by the back. Glue it only AFTER the bigger back bone is glued. You might have to apply some pressure to the neck collar, to give it the perfect shape. The back bones are hard to close only if you do it at the end, the trick is to build it by segments, I mean, close them while you're still building the top part. Join them to the body as soon as the numbers get to them. Make sure to glue the first piece of each of the rear legs BEFORE gluing the last back bone. I suggest placing the tail bones before building the legs. When you glue the tail doesn't matter, in fact, it may be even better to be glued at the end. Close the model at the rear paws and glue the nails after.

251 / CELEBI (v2) - Pokémon Papercraft
Type: Psychic/Grass
Species: Time Travel Pokémon
Height: 0.6 m (2'00")
Weight: 5.0 kg (11.0 lbs.)
Interesting Facts: Celebi is a dual-type Psychic/Grass Legendary Pokémon. It is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon. It serves as the guardian of Ilex Forest and is only able to be caught from the wild in Pokémon Crystal with an event activated by the GS Ball. Celebi is the last Pokémon in the Johto Pokédex and Hoenn Pokédex, although in the latter, Celebi is not shown.

Height: 22.0 cm/8.7 in
Width: 16.5 cm/6.5 in
Depth: 14.1 cm/5.6 in
No. of Pages: 4
No. of Pieces: 68
Level: Medium
Designer: LuIS

NOTES: The model is divided into two main parts: head and body. Start the head at the face and close at the top. The body starts at the legs and it's closed at the top. Join both parts together by the spike, placing the glue inside the head. Glue the details (such as the antennaes and the wings) after the parts are joined. The antennaes can be kinda tricky to build, but if you get past the first 2 segments at the top, the rest gets easier. You can glue the antennaes before closing the head, to apply presure from the inside. You'll have to weight the model, just before closing the spike at the top of the body, sit the model on the base and put weight litlle by little inside the body and place the head to see when it stand. After it stands, close the body and glue the head to it. The base is simple, start at the top of the trunk and close at the bottom. If you choose to use the leaves and flowers, glue them after the base is built. You can also glue the model to the base.

711 / GOURGEIST (Super) - Pokémon Papercraft
Type: Ghost/Grass
Species: Pumpkin Pokémon
Height: 1.7 m (5'07")
Weight: 39.0 kg (86.0 lbs.)
Interesting Facts: Gourgeist are malevolent Pokémon that catch their prey in their hairlike arms and take delight in their victims' suffering. On moonless nights, they are known to wander through town streets, singing an eerie song that curses its unfortunate listeners. It and its pre-evolution, Pumpkaboo, are the only known Pokémon that can learn Trick-or-Treat.

Height: 19.9 cm/7.8 in
Width: 12.7 cm/5.0 in
Depth: 14.0 cm/5.5 in
No. of Pages: 5
No. of Pieces: 58
Level: Medium-Hard
Designer: Brandon

NOTES: Start from the bottom up, closing the 'gourd' at the top, and doing the same with the arms. Build the arms from fingertip to top, being especially careful with connecting the fingers. Once the arms and bottom of the hair are done, connect them, being sure to hold the pieces together for a bit to get a strong connection. The next part is the trickiest, and most difficult- connecting the top of the hair onto the rest. Be sure to have something you can maneuver with like a scissor blade, pencil, or anything small and able to fit inside the piece. Use it to hold the tabs in place while gluing. Piece 56 is only advised if you're having trouble getting the hair to fit on the body.
Glue the hair by the back (pieces 49, 52, 53), being sure to position it to cover one eye and not the other. Will need a small wedge underneath the back to stand, or a little something to weigh it toward the front more.

472 / GLISCOR - Pokémon Papercraft
Type: Ground/Flying
Species: Fang Scorpion Pokémon
Height: 2.0 m (6'07")
Weight: 42.5 kg (93.7 lbs.)
Interesting Facts: Gliscor is a large, mainly blue-purple vampire bat-like Pokémon. Its legs have two toes and a slightly darker circular coloration on the underside, and its tail has two barbs, giving its tail the resemblance of a vampire's fangs. Its arms are red with thin striations, and are completely detached from its black wings, and each are ended with large pincers. Its ears have discernible, red, chambered ear insides, and its eyes are yellow. It has six visible fangs in its mouth, and its waist, like its arms, is red and striated. Gliscor's body resembles an open mouth, with the pointed protrusions coming from its upper torso resembling fangs, further illustrating its vampiric qualities.

Height: 17.0 cm/6.7 in
Width: 15.6 cm/6.1 in
Depth: 21.0 cm/8.3 in
No. of Pages: 7
No. of Pieces: 39
Level: Medium-Hard
Designer: Brandon
Photo: LuIS

NOTES: Start by building the head, which apart from the ears is quite easy. Build each piece separately but don't join them all together now, only at the end. The body is simple, just closing it can be a bit harder than usual. You need to reinforce the inside of the arms to hold the claws. Join the wing to the part between the head and torso. After that, glue the torso and the head. Be careful with the position you glue the torso, use the pdo as reference. You can either glue the claws now or proceed to the tail. If you follow the numbers and glue the tail, use the numbers on the pieces as reference. It takes a good time to glue, so if you can use superglue, it gets easier. To join the last segment, place the model on a flat surface, using the semi last segment as a reference and glue the last one keeping the flat surface. Also, make sure to leave the last two segments open, to insert weight and balance it, jut add weight until it stands after the arms are placed. The claws should be joined to the "wrist" before joining it to the arms. Must fold lines are included on the pdo. Note that the model, even after balanced, can fall with wind.

681 / AEGISLASH (Shield) - Pokémon Papercraft
Type: Steel/Ghost
Species: Royal Sword Pokémon
Height: 1.7 m (5'07")
Weight: 53.0 kg (116.8 lbs.)
Interesting Facts: Aegislash's body is comprised of a golden sword with the blade pointing downwards. The edge of the blade is white and somewhat serrated near the tip. Its single eye, which is purple with a white, linear pupil, sits where the blade meets the hilt, where it is surrounded by black coloration. The handle is thick at its base, tapers as it progresses to the end, and is striated. Two cloth-like arms emerge from the sides of the hilt. Each arm is primarily black and ends in lavender, transitioned by a slight whorl between the two colors. It carries an ornate shield in at least one of its arms.

Height: 23.9 cm/9.4 in
Width: 20.8 cm/8.2 in
Depth: 5.4 cm/2.1 in
No. of Pages: 4
No. of Pieces: 43
Level: Easy
Designer: Brandon

NOTES: Follow the numbers, starting from the bottom of the blade going up. When connecting the shield to the body, you can choose to either glue the arms directly to the shield and then glue on the handle, or put a magnet in the shield and handle to hold them (impermanently) together that way too. Close at the top. Weight the base if you wish to use it.

654 / BRAIXEN - Pokémon Papercraft
Type: Fire
Species: Fox Pokémon
Height: 1.0 m (3'03")
Weight: 14.5 kg (32.0 lbs.)
Interesting Facts: Braixen is a bipedal, fox-like Pokémon. While the majority of its fur is yellow, it has black legs, white arms, face and neck, and a dark orange tail tip. The fur on its cheeks is longer, and a small mane of white fur covers its shoulders and chest. Long, wavy tufts of dark orange fur grow out of its large ears, and its eyes and small nose match this fur in color. Above its legs, the fur sweeps out to either side. When its mouth is open, two pointed teeth can be seen on its upper jaw. Braixen always keeps a stick in its tail, which it sets alight using its bushy tail fur. The flame from the lit twig is used for both attack and communication.

Height: 17.8 cm/7.0 in
Width: 15.7 cm/6.2 in
Depth: 10.8 cm/3.6 in
No. of Pages: 4
No. of Pieces: 77
Level: Hard
Designer: Brandon

NOTES: The model is composed of several parts: lower body, torso, arms, wand, and details of the body. The order you build is not important, but they must be assembled starting by joining the tail to the lower body, the torso to the lower body, arms to torso and the details and the wand at last. The lower body starts at the feet and it's built up. Be careful around the waist with all the spikes, it's one of the hardest parts of the model. I suggest folding the lines on these spikes, makes them easier to build. The tail is simple, start at the spikes at the bottom and close at the top, gluing the fur after it's built. Place the legs on a flat surface and glue the tail to it, using the pdo as reference. The torso starts at the head and it's built down. Closing it is the hardest part of the model, make sure to take your time there. It's necessary to reinforce the inside of the neck by gluing some pieces of scrap paper there, otherwise the head will fall. Also, there are optional teeth (not shown in the picture). The arms are simple, take your time at the fingers and you'll have no problem. The ear tufts can offer some trouble on the last piece if not folded on the spikes. Glue them to the head before gluing the wand. Proceed to gluing the details such as the spikes on the torso, close to the arms, the wand and the flame. I needed some weight, placed inside the tail for it to stand. Since all the pieces are separated, you have some choices regarding pose, such as the position of the arms and the rotation of the torso. The one shown in the picture is slightly different from the pdo one. If you use another pose that not the do's, be careful so the ear tuffs won't collapse with the flame and that it doesn't get too unstable.
