Kodykoala’s Custom Mario Mech Hangar Bay

Mario Mech Hangar Bay

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.

Kodykoala’s Custom Minion Brothers

Mario Minions

Here is a quick custom I did with some McDonald’s Minions. I used Vinyl Mario hats and Minions I got at the thrift store. It was a fun project. If you want to see more pictures, please go to My Flickr Page.

Kodykoala’s Custom Midna Nendoroid

Midna Nendoroid

I always thought that Midna would make an extremely cute Nendoroid, so I decided to make it. It took me quite a while to figure out a base figure to use. I did not make her articulate, so that I could focus on her features. I used a Super Sonico Nendoroid figure, and a ton of sculpting on the head.

If you would like to see more pictures, please go to My Flickr Page. I am currently taking commissions, so if you are interested in an original figure, please let me know.

KodyKoala’s Custom Amiibos

Custom Amiibos

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.

If you are interested in purchasing these, I will have them in My Etsy Store when I get back in town in a few weeks. If you would like to see more pictures, I have them up in My Flickr Gallery.

Kodykoala’s Custom Midna figure


Here is my latest commissioned figure. The picture is of the figure before I changed the mouth to have a toothier grin. Unfortunately I did not get good pictures. This piece took me a lot longer than I expected. I have never really sculpted anything this detailed before, so I was up for the challenge.

I used a Fraulein Revoltech figure and a bunch of sculpting. The head was pretty much sculpted from scratch. I used micro files to carve the symbols into the head dress.

If you would like to see more pictures, please go to My Flickr Page. If you are interested in a custom, please send me an email at donald.c.kennedy2@gmail.com. We can work out the details and make you a figure that you will like. Thanks.

Kodykoala’s Custom Bowser’s Airship Playset

Bowser's Airship

As a kid, I always wanted Nintendo to make an awesome playset to live out my adventures with Mario, Luigi, Princess, and Bowser. I had the opportunity to actually make such a set, and it turned out really cool.

I used a Playmobil pirate ship, a bunch of Super Mario Bros. figures, and some extra stuff I had lying around to make this playset come to life. I wanted to make sure it was supper durable, so I did at least four coats of clear coat on almost every piece. It was a lot of paint used, but well worth it in the end.

If you would like to see more pictures, please go to My Flickr Page. Unfortunately this is not for sale because it was a commissioned piece. If you are interested in my other customs, please visit My Etsy Page. Thanks so much ^_^

Kodykoala’s Custom Enchiridion


The Enchiridion is the great Heroes Handbook from Adventure Time. I wanted to build a replica that wasn’t only cool too look at, but also functional. This is actually a hidden book box. You can open it up to put in your treasures. The cover stays closed using magnets. I used an old text book and a ton of sculpting and super glue. The only thing I didn’t sculpt was the skull. That was a Halloween decoration.

Kodykoala’s Megaman vs. Link

Megaman vs Link

Here is a recent commission piece that I did. They wanted a Smash Brothers sort of theme with scenes from both Legend of Zelda and Megaman. The Legend of Zelda scene was sculpted by me and the Megaman scene is a Gundam mechanic base. The figures are a Figma Link and a D-Arts Megaman. I also used various pieces from my parts bin.

Kodykoala’s Pinky Street Finn and Jake

Finn and Jake Pinky Street

I have really been into Adventure time lately, and I wanted to give it a Pinky Street makeover. I used some standard parts for Finn, and I sculpted the hat. Jake is a Meaty figure from Wild Grinders that I repainted to look more like Jake. This was a pretty straightforward build, but I think came out very cool.

If you would like to see more pictures, please go to My Flickr Page. Thanks!

Toy Story Alien Pen Holder

Alien Pen Holder

This was a fun project that I had the idea for a while ago, but never got a chance to finish it. I found these awesome Alien mugs at Goodwill, and thought they would be great as cut open heads, so I found some fake brains on Ebay and this is what you get. Not a whole lot to it, and it was a lot of fun to do.
