I wanted to make a Cable that towered over the other figures. I didn't want him to be the same height as Deadpool or Cyclops. Once we saw the Hyperion body used for Stryfe back at Toy Fair, I went to work.
I sculpted over the left arm, and made the techno organic virus arm. I sculpted details of the belt and attached gas canisters, and grenandes, pouches and more pouches. I wanted Cable to look like his early days. So Liefeld art with tons of straps and crazy gun were necessary.
I built up the entire padded collar piece and shoulders to support padding. If I didn't do this the pads alone would sag with the weight of the sculpt over them. So with them supported by a larger torso base, I attached the pads and sculpted over them to make them look right.
With all of the sculpt added Cable is heavy. Really heavy. He added a ton of sculpt to the top half torso and a lot on the boots and lower legs.
He got more detail work around his flesh arm glove and sleeve. Then a hand painted paint job was applied head to toe. His head looks realistic with the flesh tones and scars. His cybernetic eye is metallic gold.
He took me months to get just right and I kept putting off finishing him because it was a ton of work. He is done now and I wanted to show him off.
There will be a video review soon. Check my channel later this week.
Thanks for looking and check out my other stuff on this site.

~* This is an amazing Cable figure! He fits in perfectly with our X-force setup. The sculpting is absolutely perfect and the paint application was meticulously done. This is the perfect example of what custom work should look like!! Thank you KimotaCustoms! *~

They could have easily made cable the variant for the x-men wave with the same body mold. I like what you did here with the figure. Looks classic.

Just one thing about the position of the head. Its way to high off his shoulders. makes him look like he has a really long neck. Great looking figure all around.

nice work on this cable. I really like all the original sculpt on him instead of using the pads off the original figure. Nice work bro.
Kimota! Customs - Monday, August 11, 2014
Thanks man. Looks good but was a pain to sculpt those pads.
