So a little more detailed desc to to my least time consuming fig yet.
I hate "peanut head" ( A figure which has a head in a slightly or largely small scale then the body).
I bring this up because neither Toybiz nor Hasbro have been able to make a Surfer a "peanut head" for years. I've passed up buy surfer tons of times because of "peanut head", but then they brought back 3.75" Joes.
now I'm sure this recipes been used before, cause it's real simple. 1 surfer body + 1 Destro head( sans ears plus a new paint job) = non peanut headed Surfer. Of course by the time I came up with this recipe I couldn't get my hands on a surfer.
However I found a complete and almost mint surfer at action figure junkyard.

I am now happy.

Great job! I used this Destro head on a Surfer custom I did...it just works SO much better for him! No peanut head and he even has a cool stern/solemn expression to boot!

The paint job is exquisite!
Is the whole figure repainted?

Sort of, it was the metalic Surfer to begin with, but the destro head wasn't as shiny. So when I chopper his ears off I used testers gloss silver to make the head match. It didn't so I kind of used the same paint as a wash to even it out.
