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.

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.

The Vampire Pokémon is Here... Beware !!!


You're work looks so great, I've decided I'm going to make a tree for my room and decorate it with Pokemon. Do you think if I hanged this one by it's tail on one of the branches, that it would stay? Or would that be too much weight on the tail, causing it to fall apart?

Sounds like it would probably fall apart if you used lighter paper, but might hold together if you used heavier paper/good glue.
