Donald “KodyKoala” Kennedy is a wizard at producing slick and imaginative custom figures. The 29-year-old married father of three got into custom vinyl figures after returning to Texas from living in Hawaii.
“I don’t think I will be doing anymore of these unless Nintendo brings out some better Giant Vinyl figures,” says Kennedy. “I wanted to do a Giant Princess Peach and give her Machine-Gun-Jubblies, but I don’t see Nintendo ever making a 10-inch Peach.” But now we have a mental image of Peach with machine-gun-jubblies. Um, thanks?
Much of his work is Nintendo-centric, drawing from his own experiences as a gamer. “I remember going to school with my Nintendo lunch box and eating my Nintendo fruit snacks,” Kennedy recalls on his official site. “I even remember the Nintendo cereal. It may sound like I am a Nintendo fan-boy, but I am not. I appreciate all the systems.” And we appreciate your work.
