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!
I have been in a sort of picture taking mood, so I decided to make some custom scenes with some of my toys. I just got the Roswell Peecol from Kidrobot and I thought it would be great to make a mad scientist’s laboratory. Luckily I still have all my Mega Blocks, Area 51 toys, …View full post
This is my latest commissioned piece. They buyer wanted an Anatomy of Megaman, but I do not redo old work, so this was what I came up with. You still get to see the Blue Bomber’s insides, just a little messier. I wanted it to look like this was his final stand and that he …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
If you frequent My Flickr Page, then you have probably seen this idea floating around for a while. I had to add princess peach to the final concept because the figures that I got to use for the munny, were slightly too small and I didn’t want to waste space. I decided to add the …View full post
Here is my latest commission, Megaman on the Rushjet. I used a D-Arts Megaman and Rush. The Megaman figure was repainted to match the paint on the Rushjet figure, which was built using the parts from the D-Arts figure and Lego pieces that were shaped to work with the parts. I also had to buy …View full post
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) …View full post
Check out my latest custom vinyl. I decided to pull out some nostalgia by doing this Soopa Coin Up Bros. Vinyl with the old game Yo! Noid. I really love this DIY kit by ESCToys. I was really inspired, and though it didn’t come out exactly how I wanted it, it came out really nice. …View full post
Check out my latest custom. This is my first try at sculpting actual parts for a munny. The idea was really good, but I think the follow through lacked a little bit. I could have done a lot better job on the nose and the glasses, but Epoxy putty is so hard to work with …View full post
I have been really bad about posting my finished customs lately. I have already finished my Bloo Ogre, and I am almost finished with my Animal Crossing Qee. I promise I will get it out here in the next week or so. My wife got me a Mega Munny for my birthday, and I am …View full post
I have made a real Mario, Wario, Toad, Luigi, and Princess Peach, but what about our animal friends from Sega? Here is Sonic the hedgehog as I think he would look like as a real hedgehog (As real and he can be with big shoes and hands anyways). I have seen a lot of people …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 …View full post
This was originally designed for a commission, but the money never came through. I know I already did Zombie Peach, but this is a bit different, and it has her latest victim Mario’s head. I wanted it to seem like she was at her zombie lair, so I put bones from other victims around her …View full post
Boredom can drive a person to create a lot of interesting things. Here is something that I made when I was bored at work on day. I think it came out pretty cool, and at least it is recognizable. I have a couple other things that I made while I was working, and I will …View full post
I have been working on this for a little while, and finally finished it. I found an old Pikachu Figure at Goodwill (the same one I used for Pikachewie) and I decided to give him the zombie treatment. Not too hard, just some Apoxy Sculpt. Currently this one is not for sale, but will probably …View full post
Here is something that I thought would be cute, and it only took be about 20 minutes to do. As you all know, I love Super Mario Bros. It was only natural to make a custom Koala based on the game. I would have made one sooner, but I couldn’t figure out what to use …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.
