We were trolling one of our favorite Watchmen sites recently and noticed that the movie’s action figures are available for pre-order at about 20 bucks a piece. Because we are itching to reenact, say, the Doc Manhattan fighting in ’Nam scene a casa, we naturally need them all—and, well, that’s gonna add up. So instead of handing over cash to The Man for some PVC, we scavenged the net for Watchmen papercraft. And…mission accomplished! We've got pointers to the best Watchmen papercraft how-tos — along with a handy ratings chart so you know which superhero matches your paper folding skills. Just what is papercraft? It’s is an addictive art (skill?) in which you fold together pieces of paper to construct an action figure.

All you need is access to a color printer, heavy paper, and some clear tape.
