It's bilbo! We've missed you buddy. :-*

As for skulls try either the skulls that came with Amanaman or the Deadites from Army of Darkness. I believe the AoD are made by Palisade you may have to check eBay or one of various online toy stores for them.

I was going to suggest the same as Ryan.  The Army of Darkness figures work pretty well.  Fritzkrieg made a bunch of those ealier this year.

You MAY be able to find it at Toysrus, but I haven't seen any new Joes at my local Toysrus stores, if that's any indicator.

I've bought a few of these 3 Pack sets at TRU.  It has Hannibal and Courtney it with it.  Its a great set for custom fodder.  All three heads are vary useful.

i got a few of those sets and the head your refering to is the omly one i didn't use! :) it's very small compared to a standars action figure head. but i have a couple extra that aren't going to get used if your interested. 1 is dremeled and the other isn't. pm if you like.

action figure head with glasses?
« Reply #12 on: November 25, 2006, 10:55 AM »
I was wondering if anyone knew of any 1/18 scale figures out there that have sculpts of glasses on them (preferably that look like standard glasses and not stylish sunglasses)
I just want to see how they might have sculted (and painted it) in a way that actually looked like the eyes appear behind the glasses...)

The reason is that after I finaly get arround to finishing some star wars figures, I wanted to try making a few customs based on Half-Life characters, starting with Gordon Freeman.
...carbon stars with ancient satellites colonized by sentient fungi. Gas giants inhabited by vast meteorological intelligences. Worlds stretched thin across the membranes where dimensions intersect...

Hmm, only way i can think of doing that, would be to cast a pair of glasses in that scale in clear resin.

Baroness from GI Joe has glasses. Maybe some male Joe characters too, although I really can't think of any right now.

Isn't there a 1:18 Harry Potter line? That'd make a good example.
