Megaman Rock'em Sock'em Robots

Here is my custom Megaman Rock'em Sock'em Robots. I used EL wire to make the ropes glow and vinyl Megaman and Protoman for the figures. This was a lot of fun and took about 30 hours to complete.   read

Kodykoala's Custom Elecman Cabinet

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. It doesn't generate electricity, but it does vibrate and has LEDs. I used an Arduino mini Pro for this project so that I could get the motor and LEDs to got at different speeds. The Elecman is just a vinyl Elecman that I picked up at a flea market.

This is a great addition to my other two boardwalk cabinets. Not sure if I am going to sell this one, but if you would like to see more pictures, please go to My Flickr Page.

Kodykoala's Custom Misty Seducing Ash (Pokemon)

<p> I love Pokemon! I have loved it all the way back from Red and Blue. I also love the cartoon, but one of the things that bothered me was that Misty and Ash always had some tension. I think they should of hooked up at the beginning, but I guess that would have made it boring. This is how Misty should have gotten Ash's attention. Here she is wearing colors that would suit a water gym leader. I used a Ash pokemon figure, a Misty figure's hair, a hentai figure for the pose (I covered up the nudity to keep it PG-13), a Pikachu and a Mudkip figure. If you look closely, you will see that the tiles are painted to look like a pixelated pokeball. If you would like to see more picture, please visit My Flickr Page. If you are interested in purchasing this, please hop on over to my new store </p>   read

Kodykoala's Custom Kirby Eating Mario

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 from Japan and a vinyl Mario from a local Walmart. It was an easy custom, but I wanted to try something different with the painting. I wanted to play with the texture of the painting. The items stands about four inches tall and is about three inches in diameter. To see more pictures, go to My Flickr Page

I am trying something different this time around. I am going to try to sell my items via my own website instead of using others. I just want to see how well this works. This item is for sale for $132 shipped. If you are interested in buying this, please contact me at with you information and I will send you a Paypal request.   read

KodyKoala's Custom Rush

Here is my latest Anatomy Figure. I decided that my last one is going to be Rush. I have some ideas for some awesome cyborgs, but I am not going to be cutting them into quarters anymore (well.. unless I get a really really good idea.)

I used a rush that I found at a CVS pharmacy, transformers ravage, and other miscellaneous robot parts. I like the way that the head came out especially. If you are interested in buying this, check out Ebay, or if you want to see pictures, go to My Flickr Page

Kodykoala's Custom Zombie Luigi

I guess even a giant mech of yourself can't help you in the zombie apocalyse. He may be one of the last ones infected, but even Luigi is not immune. I used a 6" vinyl Luigi that I picked up at WalMart and I drained the life out of him. I know some are wondering what happened to Mario, but I guess that is yet to be seen.

I think this is going to be the last Zombie I do for a little while. I have done my series and now I want to move on to something different. I also have one last Anatomy Sculpture that I just finished that I will be showing in a couple of weeks. I have a bunch of ideas for new things, so hopefully I don't disappoint with the new stuff.

If you are interested in buying Luigi, go to My Ebay Listing. If you want to see more pictures, go to My Flickr Page

Kodykoala's Custom Luigi Mech Figure

This will probably be the last Mario Mech figure that I make unless Nintendo decides to make more 10" vinyl figures. Since this is my last, I have decided to sell it and let someone own this. I wanted to do a Giant Princess Peach and give her Machine-Gun-Jubblies, but I don't see Nintendo ever making a 10" Peach.

I decided to put Luigi inside the main body to change it up a little bit. My favorite part is the door. I used Lego parts to do the hinges and I think it came out really cool.

If you are interested in buying this, I have posted it to Ebay. For more pictures you can go to My Flickr Page

Need Bootlegs

HI everyone!

I know that bootlegs are generally bad, but I need to find some cheap ones for parts. Does anyone know of somewhere that I can get cheap bootlegs to cut up and make into better toys?

Does anyone have any bootleg anime figures that they are willing to sell? Any help would be appreciated. I am working on a few projects that I need anime figures for, but I do not want to spend an arm and a leg to get them. Thanks   read

Kodykoala's Custom Teenage Robot Jenny Figure

Here is Jenny the Teenage Robot from the popular Nicktoon "My Life as a Teenage Robot." My son loves this show, and I wanted to make a Jenny. This is basically a Drossel repaint, but I did have to modify the ears and the ear placement a bit. You can see more pictures on My Flickr Page

KodyKoala's Custom Battle Beasts

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 Suit and an Iron Monger. As you can tell, he is the swordsman of the group.

Here is my favorite animal, which is of course the Killer Koala. I used the head from the Koala spartan, and used an Iron Monger body. When I use to play Phantasy Star Online, I was always a ranger, so I made my favorite animal a gunslinger as well.

This one was a surprise figure to me. I was messing around with robot parts I had lying around and came up with the great body, so I had to figure out a head for it. At first this was going to be a fox, but I liked the white tiger head better. I used an Iron Monger, Mecha Hulk and a Metallo Torso. Very cool build. I called him Mauling Tiger. The original version was Ferocious Tiger, but whatever.
