Okay, this one is a bit of an involved custom. I cracked open the torso of the Toy Biz Spider-Man Movie Series Norman Osborn, and Dremeled out the arm holes to fit those of the DC Direct Smallville Series 1 Lex Luthor. Next, I carved out the neck and after repainting the legs, arms, and torso in gray, I made up an extremely BIG glob of Milliput and inserted that into the open chest cavity near the open area where the original neck had once been, adding a little glue to the seams. After removing a little of the excess Milliput from the neck area, I jammed the head from the DC Direct Smallville Series 1 Lex Luthor (after carefully Dremeling the existing neck peg into a cylindrical post) into it, creating a new hole to hold the head in place. I then carefully removed the head from the newly created socket, and let the Milliput dry into place. Once dry, I added a little Testors Modeling glue into the neck cavity and then set Lex's head in place. Once the glue was dry, I finished by making a few touch-ups of gray paint on the jumpsuit, and Ta-Da...reform school Lex Luthor!
