The Last Jedi came out some what recently, I know I’m a bit late, and I’m a really big Star Wars fan so in this post we’re going to take a look at some more amazing Star Wars origami!

This time around I tried to focus more on designs from the new movies but there’s definitely some classic stuff here as well.

First up is an amazing Resistance X-Wing model from Karol Kafarski. You may or may not have noticed that the engines and wings are different than the classic X-Wing from the original movies and the differences are reflected in this design.

The Lambda Class Imperial Shuttle from the original trilogy has always been one of my favourite designs. The benefit of using paper to fold one of these is that you can fold the wings up or out like they do in the movies.

Here’s another look at that Resistance X-Wing folded by a different artist. It took Michael Novio 3 hours to fold this so it’s not an easy model.

Here’s a great little BB-8 design that’s not too complicated. You definitely need to use orange and white paper to fold this.

The A-Wing has always been one of my favourite fighters and Martin Hunt designed this fantastic origami version with a very nice colour change in the design.

Karol Kafarski also designed this amazing Yoda. It’s folded from a single square of paper and there’s an excellent colour change in the design so you get different colours on the skin and clothes.

He also designed this excellent U-Wing, also from Rogue One. Just like the Imperial Shuttle above, since it’s made out of paper you can fold the S-Foils so they’re either open or closed.

This next TIE Fighter isn’t an official design but rather a unique design by Michael Novio that’s based off of Kylo Ren’s TIE Silencer. It’s still a really great design that looks right out of Star Wars.

Fumiaki Kawahata has the most famous origami Yoda design. It’s really great, especially if you use 2-sided green and brown paper.

This next model was specially designed for a fan fiction so it’s not an official ship from Star Wars but it definitely has that Star Wars look and feel.

Here’s the Upsilon Class Shuttle, the shuttle that Kylo Ren uses in both Episodes VII and VIII. Like the Lambda Class Shuttle you can fold the wings up or down just like in the movies.
