Okay, here goes. I wanted a custom Bronze Age Superboy figure as he appeared in The New Adventures of Superboy series as represented by the art of the late, great Kurt Schaffenberger to go with my Superboy figure set, so, using an extra COIE series 3 Earth-Prime Superboy, I set about creating it.

The figure is a pretty straight-forward custom. I slapped on new chest and cape symbols with a little glue (both symbols were made by hand at a larger size, and then photocopied and shrunk to proper size...however, unlike previous hand drawn symbols I had done before, these are drawn with a slight curve to each of the sides as well as a slightly smaller size to more match the look of the "S" symbol of the late Silver Age/Bronze Age of Superboy stories), and TA-DA...Superboy as he appeared in the Bronze Age of comics!!!!

Please let me know what you guys think of him, and as always, comments are appreciated.

Thanks. It was a simple bit of work, but well worth it, as I think there needs to be more Superboy figures out there.
