you could give him legs from the old DC Super Heroes Robin but leave the ankles and hips so that you don't loose articulation. I think superboys legs would be to big on a robin.

That's where good old fashioned customizing comes into play :) why don't you just change the pegs, I do that on a regular bassis, or you could do what I said before and use the hips of the dcuc and the lower legs of the dc superheroes, you could even swap out the ankles so that you keep that joint to :) It's pretty simple, just but glew and sand, and sometimes sculpt a little to smooth out the transitions (:

I don't think there a tutorial for it, but how I do it, is I cut off the old peg, then drill a whole through the new one, and a drill a whole into the hip, then put a tiny screw through both of them to hold it together so that it will never break, then I glue the whole thing, so that the screw never comes out. This also works on shoulder pegs, it's a lot of work but it will never break :)
