I just wanted to let everyone know that I have added a bunch of new items to My Etsy Shop. If you are looking for a unique gift for someone this holiday season, I have something for a wide variety of geeky needs. Check it out!
Lately, I have been completely addicted to Animal Crossing City Folk. I wanted to make a custom that would reflect my current interest in this awesome game, so I decided to do my first 8″ Qee. I have done a small one before, but I have always wanted to try something bigger. I ordered it …View full post
The 80’s had some great toys. I remember playing with battle beasts when I was a kid and thought they were so cool, so I decided to make larger action figure battle beasts. Here is Pugnacious Penguin. My brother loves penguins, so I had to make this one. He is made from an Avatar Amp …View full post
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 …View full post
Kaos is the big baddie in all the Skylander Games to date. I figured that a good way to keep him contained and not doing bad is to trap him inside a Snow globe. Luckily he has a thick robe to keep him warm, because I am pretty sure it will get cold in all …View full post
Here is my latest custom, a Luigi action figure. I have been wanting to try my hand at making an action figure, but I could not find my inspiration. This is what I think Luigi would look like if her were real and on steroids. I made the overalls, shoes, and mustache from mighty putty. …View full post
Check out my latest custom Soopa/Munny. I made a custom Bubs Munny, and then I made the Soopa to be his concession stand. It took me a while to get the idea together, but I think it came out great. The hardest part was probably figuring out what to make the counter top out of. …View full post
I have actually had the Mario finished for a while now, but it has taken me a while to get the hammers made. I thought the Munny form well suited Mario in this form. Not much to say about this except that I made the hammers from scratch, which was a real pain. I used …View full post
I was deeply inspired by Tinkerbots and so I decided to make one while I was at work. This isn’t the first junkbot that I have made, but this is the first I have posted. My very first junkbot was made from CDrom Lenses and capacitors. I will post pictures when I find him. This …View full post
This is the first time that I have tried doing a Sonic the Hedgehog figure. It’s not that I have anything against Sonic, but the figures that are out right now are hard to work with. I found this Giant 90s style Sonic, and I new I had to turn him to a Mech. I …View full post
Poor little Mario was looking for a power-up, and got stuck in the machine. I guess he didn’t want to win it the normal way. I wanted to make a compliment piece for my Wario Fortune Teller, so I came up with this. I had a bunch of little toys lying around, and this was …View full post
I found this gun at my local Goodwill, and I thought it would look great repainted. It was really scuffed up, but I only got if for a couple of bucks, so it was worth it. I used a Tiger Electronics Lazer Tag Phoenix LTX. This is still a fully functional gun with all the …View full post
After what Princess Peach did to Toad, Toadette has vowed to get even. She has collected a huge arsenal of weapons to tackle any Zombie threat, including the Pink Peach Horror! As you can see, Toadette is ready for battle, and I couldn’t resist making her look like the stereotypic Female Zombie Hunter. Yes, I …View full post
I thought it was about time I did another contest. This time it is really easy to enter and win. All you have to do is go to My Facebook Page and Like my page and share the post with my Princess Peach Wrecking ball figure. This contest is open to anyone, including overseas and …View full post
Here is a bunch of customs that I did this last month. I was trying to be a little more off-beat with my figures this time. I know these won’t get as much attention as my video game customs, but I am doing this for fun and not attention. So here is what I came …View full post

Do you ever what Mario and Peach do with their spare time? I figure they do the same things we all like to do, like go to the movies in a mech suit. If I had a mech suit, I would totally wear it everywhere. Unfortunately for Mario and Peach, the kids behind them are being quite annoying, but at least Pikachu is enjoying the movie.
I used a World of Springfield Movie theater play set, a bunch of random Gundam parts and pieces, an anime girl for Princess Peach’s body, and some Rement food miniatures to finish of the piece. I also wired up a piece of EL (electro-luminescent) panel behind the movie screen so that it really looks like they are watching on the big screen.
If you would like to see more pictures, please go to My Flickr Page. I have this available for purchase at My Etsy Shop. The last one of these sold out within a day, so if you are thinking of picking this up, please hurry. Thanks so much.

Where can you go after a long day of Mech fights and battles? Come down to the Nintendo Mech Bar, where we have everything a person needs to relax. Come enjoy our lovely bar keep Peach, and her sometimes annoying pet Pikachu. Watch current events on our retro TV, or enjoy a nice drink. We also have an amazing love tester. Find out if you are a Super Star, or just a Goomba. We accept all major credit cards, and as always Mushroom Kingdom Cash is accepted.
After making the Arcade, I got inspired to make other small diorama type customs. I really fell in love with the “World of Springfield” Simpsons playsets, so I am using quite a few in my next series of customs. The main base is a Moe’s Tavern, Princess Peach’s body is an anime gashapon, Mario and Walugi’s bodies are Gundam figures, and the rest was modified to fit the theme.

I am also selling this on My Etsy Page, so if you are interested in getting this, it is currently available. This is no longer available. Sorry

Lately I have been working on a lot of more affordable customs to sell. While I was working on them, I got the idea to make a diorama of mechs playing arcade machines. Of course I had to add a Nintendo twist to it. The lights and arcade screens even light up.
For the build, I used a World of Springfield playset, a 1/200 Gundam figure for Luigi, a Gundam gashapon figure for Toad, a World of Nintendo Skull Kid, and a Megaman figure that I had lying around (not sure what set he is from). I wired the LEDs and used the battery compartment that was already available in the playset.
If you would like to see more, please visit My Flickr Page. I am still debating whether I will be selling this piece, but when I do, I will post it on My Etsy Page. For more updates, please like me on Facebook.

Here is another commissioned piece. The buyer wanted a Luigi’s Mansion diorama where Luigi was blowing up Princess Peach’s dress with the Poltergust. Here is the final result. This was a really cool idea, and I was happy to do this. This is totally an idea I would do (especially after the Dr. Mario piece)
I used a World of Nintendo Princess Peach. I sculpted the dress from scratch, and the legs are from a random anime figure I had lying around. The Luigi is a Bandai Figuarts figure. I filled in the joints to make him a statue, and the hands were modified to hold the Poltergust. The Poltergust and the ghost were sculpted from scratch.

It’s been a while since I have made a Snow Globe, and it was a lot of fun. This is a commissioned piece, and the buyer requested Spyro. Luckily I had a spare Spyro lying around, and I have a soft spot for dragons. Here is Spyro’s bio from Skylanders.com:
Spyro hails from a rare line of magical purple dragons who can harness the power of the Elements of Skylands, though he prefers to master fire. But his innate ability with Elemental powers also leaves him vulnerable to darker magic. When The Darkness is nearby, Spyro can channel its energy and combine its power with his own, becoming Dark Spyro! Over the years, he has learned to focus and control this power, using dark magic to fight the forces of evil.
I used a Spyro Skylander from the original game, a portal of power from the 3DS version of the original game, a LEGO Santa Clause hat, and a snow globe kit that I purchased from Amazon. If you would like to see more pictures, please go to My Flickr Page.

Here is one of my biggest projects to date. This project is about 18 inches wide x 14 inches deep x 16 inches tall. I have been working on this for the last year (off and on), and it was well worth the time it took. The Mario Mech has already been done, but I wanted to show all the work it takes to put one together. Mario has a specialized team of Engineers and Technicians helping to maintain and repair this giant Mech.
I used the Giant Mario cut in half, and studded with straight pins to look like rivets. The base is a mechanical chain base, and the scaffolding is made from LEGO bricks. I used a lot of parts from my spare parts bins, and I used up a whole lot of my Nintendo figures. Most of the hand tools are LEGO minifigure tools. I gave this a “dirty” painting style so that it had a grimy feel.

I have been a little slow picking up on the whole Amiibo trend, but now I am going at it full swing. Half of the Amiibos are my idea, and the rest are remakes of Amiibos that others have made. I love the creativity people are having with them. I still have a bunch of other ideas that I am going to bring out, but I wanted to show off all the ones I have done up till now.
