I’m incredibly honored that two of the celebrities from the TMNT world recently autographed the ‘Backlit TMNT 30th Anniversary NES‘ This is an art piece that I made with Custom Nes Guy back in 2014 to honor the ninja turtles turning 30 years old. It has now been autographed by four celebrities, and there are plans to get even more. The owner of this one-of-a-kind art piece, Jared Guynes, has told me that he will eventually get Kevin Eastman’s autograph on it as well!
Today we finally get to show you the ‘Shishkebab’ (fire sword) that Caleb Kraft of MAKE and I recently built! Check out the full article HERE, and see the video below.
Day 5 of building a real life version of the Shishkebab (fire sword weapon) with Caleb Kraft of MAKE! The Shishkebab is complete, and we decide to have some fun by building a PipBoy in an hour! We also do some work on the set (background) for the Shishkebab release video. The PipBoy was built from mostly scrap plastic – a potato chip canister, a food storage container, some paint, and a few little bits of random plastic, wood, and metal to create the buttons.
Day 4 of building a real life version of the Shishkebab (fire sword weapon) with Caleb Kraft of MAKE! We added components, replaced the fake ignition with a much more aesthetically pleasing one, wired and installed the ignition switch, wrapped the handle, added a lot painted details. We also watch the newly released trailer as a quick break. It’s almost there!
You can usually find me working on some retro gaming relation project, but on occasion I like to dabble elsewhere. This week, I’m very happy to have the opportunity to work with Caleb Kraft of MAKE to build a working Shishkebab weapon (fire sword) from the anxiously awaited, Fallout 4! You can check out Day 1 of our build footage above.
With the release of Super Mario Maker earlier this year, fans have anxiously speculated what other titles might be released in this incredible new series. The most anticipated entry is certainly The Legend of Zelda. Being one of the most popular Nintendo franchises, and having multiple 2D and pseudo 2D games to choose from, it seems like a perfect fit.
If you’re excited about this possibility, please read on for more info and how to join the fun.
