Star Wars Origami
Half Scale Jedi Starfighter

The second giant figure made during Celebration III was the Jedi Starfighter. This was the easiest of the four giant figures. There are no tricky sink folds or simultaneous pleating steps. Just some basic reverse and rabbit ear folds. Even though the figure is easier, it still took about an hour to make.

 

 

I'd like to thank the volunteer folders… Ezra Smith, Bill Smith, Brendan De Leon, Mike Seifert, Greg Carn, Christina Deacon, and David Scott. They were a pleasure to work with. I'd also like to congratulate Alicia Talbot for winning the auction for the figure.
