Paper Star Wars!

Today I got really bored and decided to make a paper-cut-out Star Wars battle. I've started with the battle droids. They're really easy to make (though a bit fiddly), there's full instructions and everything.
Here's a picture of the battle droids. The one in the foreground is a commander, and the ones in the background and just normal. The battle droids have movable arms, hands, heads, legs and feet, and can also hold different things in their three fingers (though they don't hold stuff well: I had to glue the guns on). The commander has a yellow spot on his chest and also on his head and they all have antennae and a backpack (to cover the gluey bits). Though it's hard to make them stand up, they look great!
Here is also a picture of a Super Battle droid. It's really really easy to make, as it only has two pieces! It too has movable legs, feet, arms, hands and also rotatable shoulders (gasp)! It also has a bulging back to give it some 3-D shape. It too cannot stand up.
I also designed a hailfire droid and a N99-tank droid, and I tried making the tank droid but it won't work, since it's hard to stick lots of little tabs down to create a round surface. I haven't yet attempted the hailfire droid, since that has two wheels that need to be stuck onto lots of tabs, which will be immensely hard. Instead, here's a picture of how it the tank droid came out.
I also made a tree, but haven't tried it out yet (but I do have it printed out on card), and I'm excited because I've had some ideas for the clone army sets to do tomorrow.
