Okay, here goes. I needed a few more villains for my custom Superboy figure collection. So, back re-reading the original run of Superboy (first series), I came across a super-powered villain called Mighto in issue 108. In the issue, it is revealed that this super-juvenile deliquent was actually adopted by the Kents a few years BEFORE they found Clark. So, I set about creating him in figure form.
Anyway, this was a pretty simple custom to put together. I took the Crisis Series 3 Earth-Prime Superboy, removed his head, arms, hands, and legs, and used Tamiya Putty White to fill in the grooves of his chest symbol, thus making his chest smooth. I removed the belt from his waist using my Dremel, and after using milliput to create the belt, new boot tops, and the ringed shirt cuffs, I gave the figure a full body repaint. Once all paint had dried on the body, I reattached all body parts except for the head. Next, I sanded the neck ball on the Superboy figure into a post and then used more Milliput to build up the neck to accommodate the new head (the existing neck had a groove cut into it for the original head). Once the Milliput had dried, I repainted around the area of the neck where the seam between the neck and head was with some flesh-colored paint. Next, I jammed some more Milliput into the Spike head's neck socket, and then placed it atop the Superboy neck post to create a neck socket. While the Milliput inside dried, I used my Dremel to clean up Spike's chin, removing the "smoker's fat deposit" from the chin, and then commenced a full repaint on the head. Once the Milliput and paint had finally dried, I glued the head onto the body, and TA-DA...Mighto, foe of Superboy and his former adopted brother!!!!
Please let me know what you guys think of him, and as always, comments are appreciated.
