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 finally gotten around to taking pictures of a lot of things I have been working on, so I am hoping to be able to post one new thing everyday for the rest of this week. Here are my custom Animal Crossing Qees. The 2.5″ Tom Nook was actually a spur of the moment …View full post
Here is the next Munny in my collection of customs. I wanted to get away from character munnys and actually try a scene on a munny. I was trying to push myself to try something a lot more detailed than my Toad or Piranha Plant Munnys. I love the way it came out, and I …View full post
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
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 …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
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
Here is something that I thought would be a cute idea. I took the Angry Bird Star Wars figures and put them on the corresponding bodies. I originally just did it with the Darth Vader Pig, but it looked so funny, I thought I would do it with them all 🙂 If you would like …View full post
My Hungry Hungry Koopas got such a great response at El Paso Comic Con that I want to give everyone the opportunity to own it. So many people loved the piece, but it is really hard in this recession to really justify buying it, so I have decided to raffle it off. This contest is …View full post
I was in the mood to destroy some of my old broken electronics, so I decided that after an old Gameboy, I need to do my first generation Ipod Nano. I did not want to do zombies again, and I found this really great alien in a box of old Creepy Freaks. The arms are …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
I am finally moving my website to a cheaper webhost. Hostway was way too expensive, and I wasn’t getting enough traffic to justify the cost. I have now moved to Host Monster. I think I have everything transferred over correctly, but if you see anything a little buggy, I would really appreciate the heads up …View full post
I have added my Pikachewie, Gutsdozer, Wheatley’s New Body, Eggplant Wizard, Mauling Tiger, Megaman Mighty Mugg, and Gutsman Operation to My Store’s Custom Figure Section. I have been meaning to for a while, but I have been really busy with other projects. You will also notice that I have changed my stores format a bit. …View full post
I picked apart Megaman, so I thought it was only fitting to take apart his trusty side-kick. I used a Rush figure that I found at a CVS pharmacy, but I didn’t know at the time that it was exactly vinyl. The head is, but it was solid, so I had to carve out the …View full post
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. I used a Boardwalk bank that I found …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

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.
