Need some minor advice (TRON: Legacy customs).

Posted in Custom Workstation

Okay, recently, I had the best of luck in snagging some of the Spin Masters' TRON: Legacy action figures and vehicles for a low price at Big Lots. I picked up a Sam Flynn, Quorra, two Rinzlers and CLU (I would have picked up a Black Guard and a normal Sentry, but I ended up getting a Light Runner instead). And below are some of the things I plan on doing:

1. Sam Flynn- Replace the current head (with helmet) with a better one (similar to how Tommy did with one he got) with that bares likeness to Garrett Hedlund (if possible)
2. Quorra - Make her head swappable between the helmet version that comes with the figure and a normal looking head that bares a likeness to Olivia Wilde (if possible)
3. CLU - Make his head swappable between the helmet version that comes with the figure and a normal looking head that bares a likeness to Jeff Bridges circa 1989 (if possible)
4. Rinzler #2- Plan on swapping head to with one of likeness to Bruce Boxleitner (if possible) and replace transparent orange pieces with transparent blue pieces and repaint the painted on lines with blue ones (if possible), so to make a T:L TRON.

So, since some of people here have done modifications to these particular figures, is there any advice on making these mods and what replacement heads are also best recommended for them so to get the likeness right? I figured I'd ask these questions prior to making any changes to them. That way I know what is the typical problems with these particular figures that I am most likely to encounter, any recommendations on modifications and what should work as good for the heads (if the figures are still available in stores or can be found on eBay for very cheap). Thanks.

Additional Edit: I know that some would suggest the head from the Irina Spalko action figure from the Indiana Jones line for the Quorra figure, but I don't know if the likeness of the face is right (even though the haircut is somewhat correct).
