To use 5" figures with your 6" figures

Posted in Custom Workstation

Ever since I saw Kyle's Psylocke figure that used the old 5" Psylocke head, I've been thinking a lot about using old 5" Marvel figures' heads on 6" figures, so I'd like to know which figures might have big heads which makes them appropriate to use.
On that Psylocke, you can't tell the head is from a 5" figure!

I don't have many 5" Marvel figures. It would have been AWESOME if the Chameleon's head was useble, but unfortunately it's too small...
I also saw a Vermin custom that used the 5" Vermin's head, and it looked great (now, I don't know if I think that head looks much like Vermin, but the figure was awesome)

Another 5" figure I'm gonna get for sure, is Warlock from the New Mutants, because it looks good with 6" figures, as shown by Wings' with his Magneto custom.

So please everybody, share your thoughts on this! To use old heads make our customs more original than reusing the same Marvel Legends heads over and over again!

And suggestions on any pre-Marvel Legends figures that look good next to ML (like the Blade movie figures etc) are appriciated!

Someone recently did a stegron minus tail out of a venom and it looks sweet. I am taking my 5 inch stegron and mixing him to a venom as we speak and it looks real good and its still being assembled

I think the marvel gold figures had the best head sculpts of all the pre- ML's..They had a master of kung Fu that was really cool. I think Cap has some in the figure shop.

Cool! It's actually pretty decent in size. I've been thinking about that figure for a long time, so I'm glad I finally got to see it next to a Spider-Man. Thanks Mukami.

I had him when he came out, and if I remember right he's about 6" tall.

I just saw TMB's Stegron custom, and I'll make my own using Killer Croc like he did.

Does anyone have Stegron from the Vault line? I'd like to see a picture of him next to a 6" Spider-Man...

Definitely, I'm glad Hasbro is releasing figs in a 5 inch format, I have a Red Skull here that is in desperate need of a better head, and the Caretaker skull is perfect for it. As for finding heads...it's a crap shoot. Some stuff from the late 90's early to mid 2000's is a little bigger them earlier stuff.
