Dude...look at the real helmet that you pictured earlier. See how the back plates sit more wide, as appossed to long? The AoA helmet looks like it might be a bit out of proportion to me. I have the fig also(thanks Daremo!), and looking at it close up - the neck plates are too long for the overall helmet, imo.
The other thing to always consider(imo), is that most of the parts we all use for our customs are not to scale to begin with. The shoulder plates on this AoA fig are probably too thick anyway, plus they look to be sitting a little high at the attachment points. Add this with the ballooned shoulders, and things just don't lay correctly.
I think you have some real good potential with this custom, if you can manage to tweak some of these finer details. Which I hope you do, 'cause I want to see the blasted thing finished!

I'm going to make it a little shorter, and maybe not flair out so much... plus the fukigaeshi seem to be really big, so I may try and take them down a bit...
I'm also thinking of removing the AoA shoulder pads, since the Storm Shadow arms have shoulder pads on them already. Or maybe at the least trimming them down so they aren't as thick or cover so far down the upper arm...
So it looks like my almost complete figure is actually pretty far from it, LOL.
