Origami Stormtroopers

Instead of working on the stuff I really should be getting done, I’ve been trying to fold Origami Stormtroopers yet again.

This time, the results are semi-satisfactory. Here are some of the preliminary folds:

And here is the finished piece:

Note: This is a sheet of paper that is black on one side, white on the other. The eyes are the black side of the paper. The mouth and the black spots on the sides are merely added decorations. (On some of the preliminary models, the black spots are actually created by origami, but it takes a lot of fussing and fiddling to get them in the correct spot and then they still look all lumpy.)

Can we have instructions? ;)

  Javier wrote @

Yes! Instructions would be nice!

  Tom Angleberger wrote @

Sorry, guys! No instructions for this one. Like with C3P0, it would be easier for you to make your own than to try to follow the crazy way I made this….

  rockhopper1999 wrote @

I think I can handle it. I’ve folded the crane and the complex design for a rocket ship.

Ditto for no problemo, because I’ve made
2 Origami Fumiaki Kawahata yodas in 1 hour

Oh and by the way, this is extremely funny; I was making a van jahnke during science, and my teachers like “Is that a note i see? well let me read it” then i said it was just a piece of paper because i crumpled it before she grabbed it and she said next time i get caught with a note to make at a bit more juicy! Everyone was laughing! I think my teacher was a bit disappointed!

  Yodamaster wrote @

Tom, i just realized something, your making kids go frantic everywhere bacause you think we’ll say the c3p0 instrictions are cheap? JUST GIVE US THE INSTRUCTIONS your being like spin master and leonidas(a bakugan that never came out)!

  rockhopper1999 wrote @

I was really disapointed about leonidas but you don’t have to be that mean to him!

  Tom Angleberger wrote @

Somebody explain this whole Leonidas thing to me. Whatever it is, it’s not MY fault!

  AustinM wrote @

Ok Tom I will explain Leonidas to you. There is a video game called Bakugan Battle Brawlers. In the beginning, you get a Leonidas. Spin Master (Bakugan’s inventor) never came out with a Leonidas toy. I know cause I beat the Bakugan game.

  Tom Angleberger wrote @

Oh, man, that’s rough!
Back in my day there was this movie called Buckaroo Banzai and at the end of the movie it said there would be a sequel. It never came out!

  Joey wrote @

okay that was kinda harsh yodamaster

  Joey wrote @

But still please make instrustions Tom Please!!!!!!!!! its not fair to the people who can fold it

  Tom Angleberger wrote @

Instructions: Get yourself some paper and start folding…. if it doesn’t look like a storm trooper maybe it will look like something else…. :)

  KARL WANTS STORMTROOPER instructions wrote @

My name says it all

  Yodamaster wrote @

TOM, YOU ARE MAKING EVERYONE LIKE RIP THEIR HAIR OUT! WE WANT C3P0! DONT BE LAZY!!!!!!!!

  rockhopper1999 wrote @

Don’t be mean. Give him a break. He’s working on books and it might be hard for him to figure out how he made these complex designs.

  Tom Angleberger wrote @

Thanks, dude. I am working on books right now…. I just finished revising Darth Paper and need to get back to work on the drawings for it!

  Jack Tolen wrote @

yah and SOME people are trying to fold 1000 YODAS!

  Tom Angleberger wrote @

Don’t rip your hair out. Just try folding it yourself…. it my not work, but at least it’s less painful….

  chad youmans wrote @

dudes, calm down if he doesent want to give us instructions LET……HIM……BE! its his choice guys just comeup with your own design like me

  yodamaster oscarH wrote @

toms right. maybe if you try making a storm trooper it will look like ben kenobi. lol.:P

  AustinM wrote @

Yea I agree with Chad Y. He can’t make instructions because 1. There are a lot of ” ugly folds” and 2. He is working on other books. So don’t pester poor Tom for instructions. My Yoda is saying that….. Hate and revenge to the Dark Side only lead. Make your own instructions for Yoda’s sake. Ay Ay Ay.

  rockhopper1999 wrote @

“Make your own instructions for Yoda’s sake” That’s pretty funny. :D

  Joey wrote @

my yoda just said find your own path you must

  chad youmans and his origami yoda wrote @

thats right we can make our own. it may take ALOT of time, i mean, it took me about amonth to come up with my own yoda design,but it will be worth it. toms a very busy man working on a book we all want to read. give the man some slack guys. all in favor of leaving tom alone about it and coming up with our own and let him finish darth paper say I

  AustinM and his Yoda wrote @

  yodarules wrote @

I…………………………………..Just want instructions

  joeyyodafan wrote @

I…………………………………… Already made instrustions

  Wesley wrote @

all of you who are mad at Tom because you are being lazy and want instructions, you need to take a chill pill. I bet Tom is busy and you need to let him attend to work on Darth Paper. Who knows, it might come out early!

  chad youmans and his origami yoda wrote @

i hate it when people are sarcastic to me yoadrules

  brandy rast wrote @

hey, everybody who want instructions for all of the new origami things on this site, then MAKE YOUR OWN!!!!!! I’ve already figured out C3PO and I will try to make the instructions soon. I have also made the sith.

  superfolderchad wrote @

Is this made from a square and did u base this off another model

  Tom Angleberger wrote @

I think it was a triangle. And I think it started in a similar way to the R2-D2 … i.e. a big pleat in the middle.
I wish I had written down instructions, because I’ve been wanting to fold a lifesize Stormtrooper helmet….
