Hi Everyone, I wanted to show you guys my Hungry Hungry Koopas Game. This tooke me forever to make. I carved the base with an exacto knife, and then I used some vinyl Chinese Koopa kid toys to make the hippos. I filled in spots with Apoxie Sculpt. The game is fully functional and a lot of fun. I have a couple of ideas for some more classic board games, so we will see what happens next.
**EDIT 4-21-2012** I have also added my Gutsman Operation Working Board Game. I didn't want to start a new thread, so I figured this is a good way of keeping all my non figure customs together. Thanks Galactape for the figure. I had the hardest time finding one, and you had one that you were willing to trade. Could not have done this without you.
This didn't really fit for the showcase, but I wanted to share these. I just finished the Elecman boardwalk bank. They stand about 10" tall. I used boardwalk banks from Toys r' us, and vinyl figures from ebay. The IRONCLAW has a Mario from Mario Kart 64 figures. My kids broke his arms, so I fixed them and used him for this. The little prizes were just random things I had laying around from all the toys I have bought over the years.
The Wario has a voice chip inside that I recorded some custom sounds from my computer and the Crystal Ball Lights up. The Elecman is programmed with arduino mini pro to control the speed of the motor that makes it vibrate and the LEDS. I only intended to make 3, but if I get some good ideas for a new one, I might be into making more.
Let me know what you guys think. Thanks
