What is a GRAPHIG? "A fusion of Graphic Design and Character Figures." These are papercraft figures that can be constructed in about 10 minutes, according to COSPA, without glue or scissors. They start as 515mm x 363mm sheets of paper and end up as 130mm tall figures. Watch the following video to get an idea of how these work:
The concept design for these is by the graphic designer "Nasos" of the design group NC帝國. The first one, pictured below, is "GRAPHIG001 Hatsune Miku Nasos ver." will be released later this month.
#002 through #006 are the members of the K-on! band in summer clothing and will be exclusively available through the LAWSON convenience store chain as part of the K-on! Fair. For more details or images on any of these, check out GRAPHIG @ Cospa.
