[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.

maycausecancer When one game is rated 7.4 and another 7.6, Are you telling me one game is 0.2 worse than the other. WHAT!?!KingSigy I think Microsoft takes the cake for worst console updates. The XBone UI is worse and the fucking controller had an update. What the hell has gaming become?Dr Mel Well, that's a wrap for the Bloodborne DLC. I liked it. More thoughts and maybe spoilers in the comment section.Confuseddalek a rainy afternoon, and too sleepy for games. Time to go to the animal shelter and try not to fall asleep, surrounded by kittens. Archelon Community Question: Following from yesterday's Community Question, how would you feel if reviewers began assigning two scores to a game? One specifically for the technical aspects/performance of the game, and the other for their own personal enjoyment? ikiryou I went back to Persona 4 Golden this weekend, asked Chie to be my girlfriend but then accidentally maxed out my social link with Yumi, changed my relationship status to "It's Complicated" on Personabook.

One to fix the interior lightning. It's like the silliest thing to get fixated over, but I can't seem to ignore how white and bright some of those inside lights are.

GameXplain's YouTube audience seem pretty insistent that it's just a Star Fox 64 clone down to the graphics.
Sometimes I just don't understand peoplDr Mel I don't think it will happen, but if the NX is turns out to be a VR device, I will be the saddest boy in the milky way.Mike Martin There's something so fucking delicious about a toasted Hawaiian roll, smoked ham, Swiss, some spinach and a dollop of mustard. #FatKidPostsVIRGO Still in work clothes. Gamemaniac3434 Welp, wrote up a blog for that there bloggers wanted. Its me bitching about Bioshock Infinite! Again! Yay!!!!!!
Sr Churros Just finished watching The Phantom Menace. Yeah, Jar Jar is as bad as people say. Baby Vader is so cute and also kicks some serious ass. One of the best lightsaber battles of the series, if not the best one.
It was pretty neat!Roxas1359 Can't decide where I should upload my latest project. Either on my YouTube Channel or on Game Anyone. On the one hand YouTube gets more exposure, but Game Anyone is where some of my more popular walkthroughs are. The game is 3D Land if anyone is wonderingFuzunga Thanksgiving dinner for days!OverlordZetta Anyone know if the Bethesda games on sale on Amazon for a certain amount of time, or through Monday?
