ARCEUS


493 / Arceus - Pokémon Papercraft
Name: Arceus
Type: Normal
Species: Alpha Pokémon
Height: 3.2 m (10'06")
Weight: 320.0 kg (705.5 lbs)
Interesting Facts: Arceus is also known as "The Original One", as it is said that it created Sinnoh and Ransei, and possibly the entire Pokémon universe, along with the lake guardians and creation trio. Arceus can only be found in the wild legitimately with the Azure Flute, which was never distributed at any official event and can only be obtained by cheating. However, Arceus itself was distributed via multiple Nintendo events in 2009 and 2010 and the Pokémon Global Link in 2012.

THE PAPER MODEL
Height: 25.0 cm/ 9.8 in
Width: 45.2 cm/ 17.8 in
Depth: 34.2 cm/ 13.5 in
No. of Pages: Body - 6 Base - 2-7 (Be sure you're printing only what you need)
Level: Hard
Designer: LuIS
Photo: LuIS
NOTES:  Be sure to check out the files BEFORE printing. Not all of the pages need to be printed, and you have options to select to print.

This model can be tricky, so some experience is important. There are plenty of instructions on the template, but basically, it's composed by three main parts: the torso, the ring and the back. Start at the head, close at the belly. After that, build the ring, be careful, it's the trickiest part of the model. Join the body with the ring. The back is the easiest part, start at the tip of the tail. There are four options for the front legs (regular, mirrored, and with the legs leveled at a lower and a higher level), two options for the head (regular and mirrored), two for the tail (regular and mirrored) and two bases (one as shown in the picture and a simpler one). The connections with these parts are the same as the regular ones, so they are built basically the same way. There are textures for each type that Arceus can become and three different textures for the base, but the use of these require the pdo to change from the regular ones, so as the game plates, the movie plates only have one possible texture. There are plenty more info on the template as well as references to lines that should be folded, places that NEED to be reinforced and the suggested build order.

In order to use the Texture Pack, you'll have to use Pepakura/the PDO. Shiny and Normal pdfs are included in the packs per usual.

Hi, excellent model! I'd love to build, but I need some help first. If I print the regular legs, does that mean I won't need to print the base? Because from what I understand, you only need the base if you're printing the upper and lower legs.

@Anonymous,
I am building the model and from what I can figure out is that the base is needed to make it stand up. The short pillar at the front can be mirrored, as can the four choices of front legs and the front pillar be altered as well. The model in the picture is made with the "regular" legs- with one lower and one higher on the short pillar stand.
The back legs cannot be altered, but the base can have that extra extension for an extra pillar, which is the one shown in the picture. It is not necessary to have the larger base to make it stand. But a base must be used to make it stand.

Sorry, I ramble on quite a bit and with the model having different building options, it makes it more complicated to explain but so much more fun to build!!

Not quite. All the legs require the base. If you print the regular legs and want the base of the picture, you'll have to print pages 8 - 13. The other legs require a different front stand only, the base is the same for all. The front stand for each different leg is on the page right before the set of legs that is beeing built.

Sorry for nitpicking, but on the Gen 6 page Chesnaught is spelt as "Chestnaught", the cotton-candy-like one is called Swirlix and its evolution is called Slurpuff, and Trevenant is spelt "Trevenaunt".
