I think reusing Duke’s head which likely wasn’t designed with a helmet in mind results in a head/helmet which doesn’t work like it should.
Dusty isn't on my want list so I wasn't paying attention. Did they really reuse Duke's head?

I'd always assumed that headsculpts were the one thing Hasbro wouldn't re-use for different characters. (Except they just did it for Vertigo so what am I basing that on?)

DIdin't reuse Duke's head. Dusty and Duke just have very similar looking heads and faces with both being blonds with similar haircuts. Dusty in the sunbow two parter The Traitor looks alot like Duke

Ah. Sorry. I didn’t compare them in hand. Read somewhere else that Dusty’s head was a repainted Duke. Guess it doesn’t pay off to believe stuff you read online. Either way, his helmet doesn’t fit his head well.

This might be a weird request, but could someone snap a pic of Tomax/Xamot next to Ravager Thor? I'd like to see how their arms compare for customizing purposes.

Stole the idea from others and put the nick fury trench coat on mindbender. Works really well, but the canister doesn't fit on his hip very well. Just him holding the other end works well enough

Of course! At least they weren't visibly marked down. I didn't scan them.

I finally Dremeled the SOTA Head for a test fit. Skin color for the head is more pale than the body so It'll probably need a very light wash of red. I forgot to put Guile's dog tags on from the SOTA figure, :geek:

Guile looks neat. I'll have to dig out my broken legged figure for his heads and effects. SOTA will forever be my choice as the King of Stuck Joints,. Dry heat, hot water, freezer, nothing worked on some of my figures
