Cable Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:15171

Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:X-Men
Creator:silayjoker  
Date Added:June 1, 2009
Base Figure:Wrestler
Height:7.50 inches
I've been toying with the idea of making a taller and bigger looking Cable. The way Cable SHOULD BE. The original creators made him a 6'8'' and 380 lbs behemoth. In my opinion, Toybiz made him a muscular shorty grandpa....as tall as Hasbro Marvel Girl. It's not scaled when standing side by side with the rest of the X Men figures. So I made a younger, taller and bigger Cable. Like I said.....the way Cable should be. It's 1 and 1/2 inch taller than the usual Toybiz Cable version.
Used a wrestler as base figure. I sculpted the shoulder pads, chest strap, belt and pouches, gloves, bionic left arm, knee pads, shin guards and boots. I painted the main huge weapon with gun metal silver. Dry brushed and finished the rest of the figure with Tamiya Paints. Nathan Summers now stands tall and rock solid together with the rest of my X Men. Enjoy guys. Peace!

Everything about him looks awesome, and I am especially impressed with the sculpting. This is the Cable I would want for my Marvel vs. Capcom set. Amazing work joker, I always dig your stuff!

I agree, this is a great looking cable. Matter of fact this is what toybiz and all the rest of manufacters should do is take notes on how how to build a excellent looking action figure. Great job!!!

Where did Cable's huge gun come from? It looks great with the figure.
I'm also a fan of using articulated wrestling figures as base-figs. I did the same thing with an Arnold S. Terminator figure - used bits from an in-scale McFarlane figure.
