The CollectableKid has done an amazing job with his rendition of a classic Star Wars Legacy character with his Custom Star Wars Marvel Legends Cade Skywalker figure. I am always amazed by the level of detail the CollectableKid puts into his customs and this figure is no exception. What impresses me the most about this figure is the realism that was achieved. The hair looks flowing and the facial expression looks lifelike. I have always been impressed with the CollectableKid's sculpting ability but it is also the way he blends the paint aps with the figure give it that special something not found in many customs. To find out more about this custom from the source, read on below:
"Straight out of the pages of "Star Wars: Legacy" comes this one of a kind 7" super articulated action figure of the descendant of Anakin and Luke Skywalker, Cade Skywalker! A bounty hunter by trade, a loner by choice, and a Jedi through blood - this bad boy gone reluctant hero is ready for action on your shelf in your home. Act now and you can be the one to own this beauty of a figure. Wearing his signature pirate armor and distinctive tattoos, Cade features 30 points of articulation, lightsaber with glow in the dark removable blade and belt hook, double barreled rifle, & a hip holstered antique pistol."
Straight from the pages of the X-Men Marvel Comics comes the collectablekid's version of X-Men character Nate Grey in Marvel Legends Styles. One of the great things about the collectablekid's customs is that he is an excellent sculptor so you know that his heart and soul is poured into every custom he creates. A few notable points about his Nate Grey are the flames surrounding his hands, the detailing on his suit, and his head (which pretty much covers everything but I will go into a bit more detail). First, the flames on his hands are very well done and actually look like fire. The fire almost takes on a persona of its own and the colors are very life-like. Second, the way the body suit was painted and sculpted gives the appearance of an actual piece of clothing. Finally, the aspects I will point out on the head are the eyes and eyebrows. The way that these are designed brings much life into the figure and the raised eyebrow is a very nice touch that gives the figure personality. It is this attention to detail that makes the collectablekid's customs priceless. The hair is also an aspect that looks lifelike and is sculpted in a way that feels like the hair is flowing.

Captain America has been an all time favorite for everyone and collectablekid delivers his version of this American classic with his Custom Marvel Legends Captain America. The sculpting on this figure is spot on with great detailing, even down to the scallops on his chest. The colors work really well together and I like the way he uses black to outline and add depth to the figure. The 'A' and the star are proportioned nicely and all around this is an awesome figure.

Hot off the heals of collectablekid's Custom Green Arrow is his Custom Marvel Legends X-Men Havok in stunning detail. Styled after the X-Men comic book drawn by Salvador Larroca, collectablekid brings Havok to life and frees him from the pages of the comics. This has been a work in progress for a couple years for the collectablekid and he recently found the unfinished work, which was only lacking a simple paintjob. Having started this figure in his early customizing days, he finished it up in a matter of days and here it is!
Instead of a simple repaint, collectablekid put his sculpting talent to use once again and captures Havok's ability to absorb cosmic radiation. If you look closely, the white detailing on the chest and other parts of the body have a powdery look to them, which gives the illusion of energy flowing through the body. The X is perfectly proportioned and the sculpting looks natural. The blue visor and the gauntlets extending from the forearms are adaptations from the comics and are welcome additions to the figure. Like I have said before, collectablekid has really detailed sculpts, which sets his customs apart from other straight repaints.
Here are the details from the auction:
ONE OF A KIND Havok figure based on his look in the X-men comic book drawn
by Salvador Larroca- detailed re-sculpted, repainted by hand custom figure

Bid on this awesome Custom Marvel Legends Havok
Havok is a mutant with the superhuman ability to absorb ambient cosmic energy into the cells of his body, transform it in an unknown manner, and release it as waves of energy that heat the air in their path enough to turn it into plasma, which is a super-heated state of matter consisting of charged subatomic particles. These waves will emanate from his body in all directions unless he purposefully tries to channel them in a single direction, usually along the length of his arms. Havok is himself immune to the intense heat he creates, as well as the power blasts generated by his brother Cyclops.
Despite past accounts, the energy that Havok releases is not truly a concussive force. When Havok strikes an object with the waves of intensity of hot plasma, the sudden vast jump in temperature will often cause objects to shatter, explode, or seemingly disintegrate, and an observer might therefore wrongly think that the object had been struck by a concussive force. Should Havok direct his energy at the lowest level, he can project it towards a human being and his target will suffer a severe headache but will not burn up.
Havok's body is constantly in the process of absorbing cosmic radiation. When each of his body's power-storage cell enclaves reaches its capacity, excess cosmic energy is thereafter absorbed and immediately re-emitted in negligible quantities. Upon the total expenditure of all his available energy, it takes Havok's body about 16 hours to recharge to its peak level. The act of concentration involved in releasing his energy in anything other than an omnidirectional wave is physically exhausting for Havok if he continues it over an extended period of time.
