I think paper minis fit fine for some things -- filling out mobs of civilians, for example, or for playtesting rules while I'm getting the figures together and painted.

This product contains fifteen robots in paper-miniature form:

  • 1 Repair Droid
  • 1 Hover Droid
  • 6 Combat Droids
  • 7 Multipurpose Humanoid Droids

The paper figures come in two formats: flats and triagonals.
