We see our share of papercraft at CA, but Austin Shyu's brand of AusGerCo. creations are the first "paper action figures" to cross our path. Over the past few years, Shyu's constructed everyone from Wonder Woman to Sonic the Hedgehog to Ego the Living Planet out of craft paper, glue and various illustration implements.

Shyu is prolific, having crafted one-off characters and entire casts from familiar series alike. His X-Men, Spider-Man, Guardians of the Galaxy and Street Fighter assemblages are especially impressive.

We missed out seeing Shyu's special Flaming C figure during San Diego Comic-Con International 2011 at the The Museum of Conan Art installation, but it was there, standing among other fun tributes to Conan O'Brien.

Shyu sells his creations at conventions throughout the year, but even if you can't track him down in real life, you can look at his work any time on Facebook, Tumblr, Twitter, Instagram and Etsy.
