Which head should I use?

Posted in Custom Workstation

I want to make a Bill the Lab Guy figure as part of my Action League Now set (well, the one I'm still working on). I know how to make the body and everything, but what I'm stuck on is the head:

What head should I use? Did they use something off-the-shelf, or did they just sculpt it themselves?

Hey, harvey. I think Bill's head may be a Playskool dollhouse person's head with resculpted hair and glasses. Sorry, but that's the only idea I've got.

What's that Mego head? It looks like Bill! What is Mego?

I kinda want to get started on these as soon as I can. If I can't find a suitable head I may have it custom sculpted.

As a last resort I might get this repro Mego head and make modifications on it:

I looked at the Wikipedia article and they say that Bill the Lab Guy, The Chief, and The Mayor are made of parts from Playskool Dollhouse figures.

I don't know what size the figure you are making is but if its around 4" this head looks like it can work with minor sculpting:

this doesn't come out until feb. but I think its worth the wait. You could probably find one for cheaper on ebay after they come out

Reference pictures? We don't need no steenkin' reference pictures!

These are screengrabs from a primarily Bill-centered episode I found online:
