Kodykoala’s Custom Hungry Hungry Koopas

hungry hungry koopas

Here is Hungry Hungry Koopas. This one has been a long time in the making. I have been working on this on and off since January. Initially I was going to use Koopa Troopas, but I decided that using the Koopa Kids would give it an extra flare. Each “Hippo” took about 10 hours to complete, and the main base took about the same, so I would have to say that the whole build took about 50 hours. The brick pattern was carved into each of the bases using an exacto knife. I also wanted to try a different style intn terms of how I painted this. I wanted this to look good and be functional.

I clear coated this 4-5 times to make sure that the paint would not come off when being played with. I printed the label using a laser printer and then I put a clear coat over it, so that the label would stay intact.

This piece will be available at El Paso Comic Con starting September 14th. If it does not sell, it will be available on my website. If you would like to see more pictures, please go to My Flickr Page.
