SNORLAX V2 (Giant version)
143 / SNORLAX - Pokémon Papercraft
Species: Sleeping Pokémon
Height: 2.1 m (6'11")
Weight: 460.0 kg (1014.1 lbs.)
Interesting Facts: Wild Snorlax can be found sleeping in inconvenient locations throughout Kanto. Many Snorlax only awaken once a month, spending their waking time finding more food. A hungry Snorlax is not very picky, and will eat anything and everything that is edible, and it isn't satisfied until it consumes 900 pounds of food. Then it goes back to sleep. If one ever sees a sleeping Snorlax, he or she should not wake it up, because these Pokémon become very grumpy if their peaceful dreams become interrupted. It evolves from Munchlax via Happiness.

NOTES: PMF and I have always loved Snorlax - we can totally relate to it's lifestyle :P - so when I asked for a GIANT sitting version, PMF didn't hesitate.
I did initially build the giant 45cm high model, but I accidentally printed the template out on the wrong weight paper (120gsm instead of 200gsm) and consequently the finished model was too fragile, and buckled out of shape under even the slightest pressure - much to the enjoyment of my 3 year old. So rather than print out all 36 pages again, I downsized it to 20cm, knowing that the template was buildable.
We have provided both sizes in the download packs. It's a straightforward build: remember to print the giant version on heavier cardstock, start at the head, and work your way down in rings - follow the numbers of each piece - close at the soles of the feet. We have also included the Burger and Wiimote accessory =p
