Okay, this one is a bit of an involved custom. I had to crack open the torso of the Toy Biz Spider-Man Movie Norman Osborn, Dremel out the arm holes to fit the arms from the DC Direct Smallville Series 1 Lex Luthor, and after repainting the legs, arms, and torso, made up a BIG glob of Milliput and inserted small chunks of that around the arm holes to create a new notch for the arms on both sides. Once the Milliput was dry, I sanded it down a little, test fitted the body back together, and once I was satisfied with that, I pulled the body back apart I added a little Testors Modeling glue around the seams and inside pegs to seal the body back together. While I waited for the glue to dry, I set about working on a slight reworking of the hairstyle on the Superboy head from a DC Direct Silver Age Superboy and Supergirl boxset (i.e., removing the spit curl) with some Milliput and yellow paint to create Pete's blond hair. Once the glue was dry, I finished by popping the modified Superboy head onto the neck's ball joint, and Ta-Da...Superboy's best friend, Pete Ross!
