Smash Bros. Creator Masahiro Sakurai Gets His Own (Unofficial) Amiibo

Official Amiibo are restricted to video game characters, but fan-made ones can be whatever the hell they want. Hence this incredible tribute to Smash Bros. creator Masahiro Sakurai

Based on a his buddy Sean Hicks’ 2D artwork, 3D artist George Crudo built a caricature model of the Nintendo legend, then had it 3D-printed and painted so it could blend in with actual Amiibo.


Here’s the progression:

The original 2D sketch
3D model of the sketch, with added Amiibo base.
The painted, 3D-printed Amiibo.
The final product alongside other Amiibo for scale.

Last year, we saw a similar effort when GandaKris made an Amiibo tribute to former Nintendo boss Satoru Iwata.
