Poplock Freebies - 01


More free Poplocks toys for you to download, print and build! This is the Face Blocks 01 set, and it's pretty simple - you get parts for building two blocky faces. The construction is different from the body block on 2-PH as these blocks are made with two pieces. 

Why two pieces per body block?  
  • It may be easier to cut out and make (comments are welcome!)
  • More parts can more easily fit on a single page!
  • Build body blocks made with two colors!
DOWNLOAD!

good job on the new designs, however, i think you should change it so that the bodies are just one big plus shape again. the two strips is easier to cut out, but harder to put together.

Hey Sam, is the "harder to put together" part due to some parts fitting a little too snug against each other? Or is it simply because another poplock is needed?

maybe i didn't use the right kind of paper, but it was hard to get the outside parts together. i could easily get the middle together, so it was a plus shape, but due to that only being held together by the poplock, the strips i had to join in order to make it a cube kept moving out of place, and once i finally got it, the model was kind of strange looking. maybe i just put it together wrong. thanks for the new designs, you did a really good job with them, which is what i have come to expect.
