Name: Lapras
Type: Water / Ice
Species: Transport Pokémon
Height: 2.5 m (8'02")
Weight: 220.0 kg (485.0 lbs)
Interesting Facts: Lapras are social Pokémon, and they swim through the sea in large pods. They keep track of their fellow pod members through use of high-pitched songs they constantly sing, much like whales. Unfortunately they are very docile and do not like to fight, and this has made them an easy target for hunters. They are currently very rare in the wild. Their songs have become very sorrowful in recent times as it has become harder and harder for these peaceful Pokémon to find others of their kind. They are highly intelligent, and have been said to be able to learn human speech. They are very fond of ferrying people on their backs. Lapras is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon.

Height: 20.0 cm/ 7.9 in

Pages: 9
Pieces: 75
Level: Easy/Medium

NOTES: This model was supposed to be released in time to commemorate the birthday of our beloved fallen comrade, Paperbuff, but unfortunately things didn't work out to plan. We would still like to dedicate Lapras to her, as it was her favorite Pokémon, and we miss her so very much.

This is a very nice model to build, it is relatively straight forward and simple, just follow the numbered pieces. The only trouble you may encounter would be with the assembling of the flippers - you will need tweezers. Included are 2 extra facial expressions: Happy and Sleepy. Other than this, have fun!

1.) Paperbuff <3

2.) Now I can put this model by my earlier Lapras build. That build was so satisfying, especially that wonderful knobby shell, and I can't wait to dig into this one.
