Extremely Cool Samus Aran Life-Sized Papercraft

Samus Aran, the most badass female in all gaming (sorry, Lara Croft) now gets some of the love she deserves as a paper-craft reproduction of her Metroid armor.


Flickr user IAmThatOneGuy surprised us all creating this masterpiece of paper-craft themed after the greatest bounty hunter from the 8 and 16 bit generations of gaming. The result is this life-sized piece that we’d kill to have in our rooms, or anywhere, to draw the attention away from how crappy the rest of our rooms look.



The author claims to have done this just for fun, but most of us wish we had the talent to do things that are this awesome in our free time. Congrats, pal, now stop downplaying this brilliant job!
