Heisenberg. Poseable paper character from the TV series Breaking Bad

The head on the paper character moves up and down and side to side. The arms move with two degrees of freedom.

This project is free to download. Print out the parts on thin card. (230 microns, 67 lb) Notice that the fifth sheet is printed on both sides. Print out the front, flip the card and return it to your printer then print the back. Score all the dotted and dashed lines and cut out the holes before carefully cutting out the pieces.

Let the glue on the nose dry completely then fold round and glue the head together. Glue in the darts at the top of the head to complete the head’s shaping.

Glue the glasses to the bridge of the nose and then the ears.

Roll round and glue together the neck so that it lines up with the edge of the coloured area, arrowed.

Glue the lower ring strip into place.

Starting with the wider ring strip so that the end is lined up with the step in the neck tube, roll it around the neck and glue it to itself. The ring needs to be free to turn.

Glue the final ring into place trapping the rotating ring on the neck.

Fit the head over the neck. Glue the head to the head holders lining up the edge with the shot black lines on the head.
