Modern Cable

Posted in Custom Workstation

Hi,
Brand new to the figure customization game, but I'm a fairly proficient sculptor so I want to give this a shot.

I'd like to start by making the modern incarnation of Cable from Cable and X Force. I would like to make this out of Marvel Legends figures. I was wondering if anyone else has done this. What figure(s) did you use? Here's what I'm thinking:

Cable's head (duh)
Cable's right arm
Ultimate Iron Man's torso
Any female right arm
Bishop's Legs (maybe?)

I think I'll just scratch build the prosthetic arm over the frail right arm.

Thoughts?

Thanks everyone!

Why not instead of using a really small arm(that would have a disproportionately small hand) why don't you dremmel down another cable arm and then resculpt it how you would like.

Okay, so I got the Ultimate Iron man upper torso and attached Cable's muscular right arm. It looks a little bulky, but nothing too comical. I tried to put Jean Grey's arm on the left (modern Cable doesn't have the cybernetic looking arm but instead has a very emaciated looking arm with a prosthetic arm over it. The problem is the female arm looks absolutely ridiculous on the iron man torso...just way too tiny.
So I'm wondering if anyone has a suggestion for a replacement? Again, it's a scrawny bare arm. I'm going to scratch build the prosthetic arm over it.
