Okay, here goes. I needed a few more members of Superboy's supporting cast from the old comics for my custom Superboy figure collection. So, who better than Professor Lewis Lang, Superboy's archaeologist next door neighbor and friend, as well as the father to the Boy of Steel's girlfriend/nuisance, Lana Lang? So, I set about creating him in figure form.
Anyway, this was a pretty simple custom to put together. I took the DC Superheroes Clark Kent figure, removed his head, suit jacket, and hands, and gave the figure a full body repaint. Once all paint had dried on the body, I reattached all body parts except for the head, and then sanded the neck ball on the Clark Kent figure into a post. Next, I jammed some Milliput into the Norman Osborn head's neck socket, and then placed it atop the Clark Kent neck post to create a neck socket. While the Milliput inside dried, I applied a small, thin strip of Milliput to the Norman Osborn head to create Professor Lang's signature mustache, and then commenced a full repaint on the head as soon as all of the Milliput was dry. Once the paint had finally dried, I glued the head onto the body, and TA-DA...Professor Lewis Lang, friend to Superboy!!!!
Please let me know what you guys think of him, and as always, comments are appreciated.
