I'm working on a new custom, trying to modernize a Major Altitude.

I have the body peices together.

now....the head.

can anyone suggest a good head for Major Altitude?

He needs to have hair combed to one side with a mustache.

a mustache I can probably paint on any upper lip, but I'd like to go with a head that looks similar to the original. I wish I can just dremmel the old figure's head...but I am lacking a dremmel tool or that particular figure for that matter...

any suggestions?

I guess it depends on how much resemblance to the vintage fig you want...

CG Fred has the hair combed to the right.
Capt Ace and Blowtorch combed to the left.

I was looking at some star wars figures too..

Have a look at Biggs Darklighter. You'd need to repaint but the hair and mustache are both there.

I checked out Biggs, his stache isnt right...

I've been looking at the X wing pilot evolution 3 pack.

The dude with the stache has the right face..
but the other guy would look good too.

I just cant justify spending that kind of money for just a head...and maybe a helmet.

I decided on the Yavin Honor Guard's head.

Its a nice look. the hair is slightly parted, and a stache would be easy to add.

Now I just need a helmet from ROC Rampage. the figure that came with the Target exclusive Rhino.

can anyone spare one?

Isn't it the same helmet as Airborne? You could just use one of his, probably easier to obtain another fig.

Ha, Roc Rampage has parted hair and moustache lol.

Good luck with tha one tho. Most people bought the Rhino precisely for the figure... you might have an easier time getting a Roc Rollbar, it has the same helmet (Airborne's)

Rollbar eh?

I wish there was a site that just stocked this stuff...

At first I was gonna try to get my hands on a Star Wars A wing pilot helmet...

But all the stuff in the stores seems to lean towards that stupid Clone Wars theme..

He may have parted hair and a stache but its a walrus stache.
And I think its too recognizable as Mutts head.

The head I decided to go with is of a generic guy.
