Kody Koala is one of the best customizers out there. His zombie megaman and chewbaccachu have already gone viral and now he’s back with a super amazing game custom that combines Super Mario Bros and Hungry Hungry Hippos!
Here’s KodyKoala’s description of Hungry, Hungry Koopas and a great gallery
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.
