Custom vinyl Koala Crash Soopa

Jun 21 // ekoala2002

[Editor's note: Sometimes, it takes me a few looks to recognize awesomeness. Dtoider ekoala2002 made a custom Soopa Coin-up that includes a little animation starring his character, Kody Koala, going through various old-school Nintendo games. Check out Kody Koala's Web site for more of his custom work. -- CTZ]

Here is my latest Soopa Coin-up Bros. custom. I combined my love on animation, koalas, electronics, videogames and vinyls into one compact little piece. Check out the pictures on my Flickr or the gallery below for pictures of the custom Soopa.

I wanted to have one that was like the Dookie Poo one that was in the Soopa Show, but I didn't want to drop $1000 on it. So I decided to make my own. The animation on the Soopa is Kody Koala going through a bunch of classic NES game levels.

Materials Used: Gameboy Advance SP, EZFlash III, Soopa Coin Up Bros., acrylic paint, portable speaker, switch, foam, wire, AC bulk head connector, Stereo jack and my printer.

I think it came out very well, even though the video is a little grainy. I hate how the first video came out, so I wanted to show what the animation really looks like, which you can check out after the jump.

As always, I would love to hear what I could do to do better next time.
