Cardboard Robots: Paper Beats Metal

I’ve seen my share of sci-fi movies and I know how giant robots can be pretty imposing. But these robots made from cut cardboard look like they couldn’t really do any damage – even the deadly, but tragically-flawed ED-209 from Robocop.


These awesome little cardboard robots were made by Etsy artist Cardboard Myth, and they’re the perfect thing for your desktop toy collection, don’cha think? I sure do. In addition to ED-209, you can find a Gundam-style mech, as well as a couple of totally original creations.


What’s really impressive about these robots is that they all offer articulated limbs, so you can position them like plastic action figures.


Just be careful not to get them wet, and definitely keep them away from open flames. Paper robots hate fire.


You can start building your own cardboard robot army over at Cardboard Myth’s Etsy shop, where these each sell for about $34(USD).
