Like most people, the head that Hasbro created for the Resolute Comic Pack Tunnel Rat was.... well, ya know. So I decided to try and come up with an alternate head for him. This one has been in the works for quite some time... and during my wait, I actually found a second head that kinda works too, although it looks a little bit out of place.
Anyway, I took one of the older TR figures, cut the neck stem off and dremeled it to work with a ball socket. I had to paint the face to match the skin tones with the rest of the figure, and then I painted the doo-rag bandanna to match his shirt.
This other head that I found came from a Star Wars Cinema Scene of Rebel Pilots. It looks a little out of place, since it's just a plain head... but I guess it kind of works anyway. Same deal - cut the neck stem off and adapted it to fit the ball socket.
Now selling custom cast parts in my eBay store

I was looking exactly the same first head at Yojoe.
I thought it was good too, but for a realistic TR, not the classic.
It looks asiatic and you did a damn good job on it.
I'm not usre but one of the older versions has a head that looks more like Larry Hama.
The second head looks a bit odd, indeed, but not bad at all. It has the looks of a young, recently recruited TR.
I've seen some troopers, and one a has a head that might look good. I dunno a s#!+ about SW, so i can't give you more details except is a regular SW figure, not a Clone wars.
Good work anyways, they look factory made

I like what you did, but I personally don't have a problem w/the head Hasbro gave us. I actually quite like it in contrast to what most others have posted.
