There's one thing I like about this board: it remembers my info so I don't have to enter it every time.
The first ML Cable was far too small, so I removed the legs after the thigh joint and replaced them with ML 3 Thor's legs. That made him just the right height. Then I replaced the cybernetic arm with ML 5 Colossus' left arm and Cable's right arm with Thor's.
Now he looks like Cable.
This Cable is also too small. I'll do the same thing. I have a zillion ML 3 Thors and more X-Men Colossuses so I can make Cable until the cows come home.
It makes me bananas when something is so far out of scale.
I get at least two (usually more) of everything I want because I have ADD/ADHD and I lose everything very quickly.
With ML 3 Thor I was very patient on ebay and spent as little as $10 when the figure was going for $75+. With ML Walmart Thor promised, I knew the price would plummet, and I got a bunch of both ML 3 Thor and ML Walmart Thor. Then, of course, the price of both went way up. Collectors and/or customizers saw that Walmart Thor was a pee-wee and a totally different figure. So much for a cheaper substitute. But he has good legs for a 6'2" figure, and there's no loss in cannibalizing a lousy figure.
Marvel Girl is not so bad. As usual, ML women have lousy bodies. But one can get a bunch of LH Ann O'Briens for a very low cost and make all the large female figures from her. She has thighs the female figures would like. I'll make her into Power Girl.

: be overseeing the making of these characters
: for that reason. As for the Wal-Mart Cable,
: I personally only keep one of each figure
: with the exception of Iron-Man and I
: replaced my old Cable with the Wal-mart one.
