Okay, here goes. I have recently been working on a fan fiction titled "There Are Always Possibilities..." in which classic Earth-1 Superboy is slingshot from alternate Earth to alternate Earth, during which time he meets various alternate versions of himself. This fourth figure I have dubbed Earth-606 Superboy, and he sports a variation on a symbol that I found online...this one is an equivalent to the existing Earth-116 Superboy who had a chest symbol with reversed colors for the fan fiction figure I posted of the Superboy of Earth-491. So, using an extra COIE Series 3 Earth-Prime Superboy, I set about creating him.

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 to more closely approximate the symbol that I found online), and TA-DA...Earth-606 Superboy as he appears in my fan fiction, "There Are Always Possibilities..."!!!

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

I've always liked the inverted color scheme for the shield, it's so striking. Nice job on the custom, do you have a link to your fan fiction?

Thanks, I'm glad that you liked the figure MarkedMan. I also think that the inverted color scheme is striking...I have liked it since I first read the classic 1960s Superboy story "The Ordeal of Chief Parker". I don't have a link to my fanfiction as it is not fully finished or posted, but once it is, I will definitely send you the link.
