Cable Guys XL – Crash Bandicoot


I know it’s a bit early to be speaking about Christmas since its spooky season.

But I just wanted to do a quick review of something that I believe would make an excellent gift for those geeky family members, or for those tough Secret Santa giftees.

I posted about it briefly on my social media when it turned up back in August but I have to say that the Crash Bandicoot XL Cable Guy is a brilliant bit of kit.

If you don’t know what they are. The Cable Guys XL are a device holder styled in the shape of your favourite media characters. Fully licensed and massive means it is a standout item on any desk.

It can hold a lot of different things as well…

This is a short review of it, I’ll admit. Simply because what can be said about something that holds something and looks like Crash Bandicoot.

Standing at 32cm tall, it comes in a clear box with a Micro USB cable. This is a bit unfortunate since a lot of things are USB-C now.

As mentioned, it can hold a lot of things, your phone, your Switch, your controller, your 1980’s video game, your stuffed plush Skunk. The list goes on, rest assured if it can fit across both hands it will be safely held.

I primarily used it to hold my phone whilst charging and for watching some media while it was being held.

The build quality is really good and overall it feels really solid, the base on mine did have what appears to be glue residue which is unfortunate and does kinda spoil it a little.

The Cable Guys XL come in many different variants so if Crash is not to your liking you should be able to find an alternative to match your interests.

They are also priced really well at around £25

I’m going to try and do a short video of it to give you a better look, so stay tuned for that happening over the next few days 😊
