    I had a question for some of the fellow kitbashers here.......With all of the ideas I've had bouncing around for new customs for ALTS I keep revisiting the idea to make a BT/ALT Skyfire from a Valkyrie jet with FAST pack armor, but I would like to find a head, sizewise, that would work. I am looking to have the head be more "toon" accurate but obviously with a "new" body. I even have perfect grade gundam hands to help make the transition and have the proper jet style picked out. Any robot head style and size suggestion would be greatly appreciated. Obviously I am not opposed to doing any tweaking or reshaping to a point. Size factor needs to be right though. The head doesn't even need to be from a transformer, but a robot head of proper scale.

    Fire away any suggestions!

    Have a great night!

    that head is actually too small for the Yamato 1/48 VF-1 Valkyrie jet, but great idea though! =)

    It'll sound really weird, but how about a Power Ranger toy head? They have that helmeted look, and I'm sure you could find one big enough...
