Pete Ross as Superboy Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:29690  
Name:Pete Ross as Superboy
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Superboy Classics
Creator:manomight1974  
Date Added:May 22, 2011
Base Figure:DC Direct Crisis on Infinite Earths Series 3 Earth-Prime Superboy body and DC Direct Silver Age Superboy Head
Height:6.00 inches
This one was inspired by several issues of Superboy back in the Silver Age when Pete Ross was temporarily granted Superboy's powers and had to act in his stead.

It was a pretty straight-forward, easy custom to do. I merely removed the head from the Crisis on Infinite Earths Earth-Prime Superboy figure, and swapped it out with a Silver Age Superboy head from the Superboy/Supergirl boxset. Before i could put the new head on the body, I repainted the neck and hands to more closely match the skin of the head. I then had to modify the hairstyle to more closely match that of Pete Ross with my dremel and some Milliput, and once the Milliput was dry, I repainted the black hair blonde and then reattached the head. As soon as the head was reattached, I applied new symbols to his chest and back that more closely matched the look of the "S" symbol of the Silver Age of Superboy stories), and TA-DA...Pete Ross as Superboy!!!!

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