Your Chance to Win Hungry Hungry Koopas



I realized that in this economy, it is hard for people to be able to buy some of my toys. I have decided to give everyone a chance to win it. I am holding a raffle on my website for Hungry Hungry Koopas. Tickets are $3 and I am only going to sell 300 tickets, so odds of winning are really good. Tickets are being sold in my online store. Please go to:

Here is your chance to win one of my customs. This is one that I did for Iam8bit, but it did not sell. Instead of posting it to my website store, I decided to give it away for some ideas. For all the information, please go to:

Kodykoala's Custom Elecman Cabinet



Back in the day, people believed that electricity was a way to cure many sicknesses. They even made boardwalk machines that shot electricity through your system. I thought it would be cool to have none other than Elecman generate the electricity.

Here is my Elecman boardwalk cabinet. It doesn't generate electricity, but it does vibrate and has LEDs. I used an Arduino mini Pro for this project so that I could get the motor and LEDs to got at different speeds. The Elecman is just a vinyl Elecman that I picked up at a flea market.

This is a great addition to my other two boardwalk cabinets. Not sure if I am going to sell this one, but if you would like to see more pictures, please go to My Flickr Page.

KodyKoala's Custom Eggplant Wizard for Iam8bit



Here is one of my submissions to Super Iam8bit. I wanted to do something that was different than my usual, and I have always had a soft spot for Eggplant wizard ever since Captain N. I used a Dragon Quest Dragon King vinyl figure for the body. The head was sculpted from Apoxy Sculpt, and the tiles were LEGO 2 x 2 tiles roughed up.

This was a lot of fun, and I am really excited for it to be in the show. If you are interested in purchasing it, it will be on sale by Iam8bit after the show. To see more pictures, please go to My Flickr Page.

Kodykoala's Custom Kirby Eating Mario



If you were to google image search Kirby, one of the first images you see is Kirby eating Mario from Smash Bros. Well I took this idea and went with it. The only thing I added was a Mario hat to make it seems like he was gaining Mario's powers.

I used a vinyl Kirby from Japan and a vinyl Mario from a local Walmart. It was an easy custom, but I wanted to try something different with the painting. I wanted to play with the texture of the painting. The items stands about four inches tall and is about three inches in diameter. To see more pictures, go to My Flickr Page

I am trying something different this time around. I am going to try to sell my items via my own website instead of using others. I just want to see how well this works. This item is for sale for $132 shipped. If you are interested in buying this, please contact me at [email protected] with you information and I will send you a Paypal request.   read

KodyKoala's Custom Rush



Here is my latest Anatomy Figure. I decided that my last one is going to be Rush. I have some ideas for some awesome cyborgs, but I am not going to be cutting them into quarters anymore (well.. unless I get a really really good idea.)





I used a rush that I found at a CVS pharmacy, transformers ravage, and other miscellaneous robot parts. I like the way that the head came out especially. If you are interested in buying this, check out Ebay, or if you want to see pictures, go to My Flickr Page

Kodykoala's Custom Zombie Luigi



I guess even a giant mech of yourself can't help you in the zombie apocalyse. He may be one of the last ones infected, but even Luigi is not immune. I used a 6" vinyl Luigi that I picked up at WalMart and I drained the life out of him. I know some are wondering what happened to Mario, but I guess that is yet to be seen.

I think this is going to be the last Zombie I do for a little while. I have done my series and now I want to move on to something different. I also have one last Anatomy Sculpture that I just finished that I will be showing in a couple of weeks. I have a bunch of ideas for new things, so hopefully I don't disappoint with the new stuff.

If you are interested in buying Luigi, go to My Ebay Listing. If you want to see more pictures, go to My Flickr Page

Kodykoala's Custom Luigi Mech Figure



This will probably be the last Mario Mech figure that I make unless Nintendo decides to make more 10" vinyl figures. Since this is my last, I have decided to sell it and let someone own this. I wanted to do a Giant Princess Peach and give her Machine-Gun-Jubblies, but I don't see Nintendo ever making a 10" Peach.



I decided to put Luigi inside the main body to change it up a little bit. My favorite part is the door. I used Lego parts to do the hinges and I think it came out really cool.

If you are interested in buying this, I have posted it to Ebay. For more pictures you can go to My Flickr Page

Kodykoala's Custom Anatomy of Gutsman



Here is my follow-up to the Megaman anatomy Sculpture I did a few weeks ago. I actually made this about the same time as the Megaman, but I have only now just gotten around to painting it. I used a vinyl Gutsman that I got at a CVS pharmacy a couple years back. The robot parts were parts from random robots and things that I have built previously. If you are interested in purchasing this, I have posted it to Ebay.

Custom Yoshi Zombie Figure



Here is Zombie Yoshi. Have you ever seen the clip from Robot Chicken where Mario and Luigi end up in Vice City? Well at the end of it, Yoshi is shown driving to Racoon city. This is how that ended up....



I am actually trying do something a little darker, so I thought zombie Mario universe characters would be awesome. I am actually selling this one on Ebay and I hope it does well. The Megaman sold for $400, but the buyer backed out. So I will be putting that one back up in a couple of weeks also. As always, I would love to know what you think. Since this is my first Zombie, I would like to get some thoughts on how to make it better. To see more pictures, go to My Flickr Page.
