    teen titans style robin

    anyone got one of these ,due to a list of mishaps i ordered one of these along with a superman via ebay and the gsp ,both arrived damaged and to cap it off ftc sent the 8 inch robin and not the one i ordered ,he has a largish head and i wonder if the teen titans one shares this noggin or its scaled down ,the only in hand picture i can find suggests its the same size head for both figures ,and i dont want to go to the time and effort of chasing down a replacement only to find its got a too large head for the body
    thanks in advance for any assistance

    I know, right? I loved the sculpt as well and tried to move it to an 8 inch body but the clothes are too small to fit.

    I'll likely sell the figure off as the head makes the figure a dud.

    FTC reused the head for the new 8" Skinny Robin The Teen Wonder. A great figure, if not for the head size.

    The FTC heads are much firmer than vintage, maybe that retards the expansion and shrinkage?

    Wouldn't acetone destroy the paint? Perhaps try naptha? Sorry to offer more questions than answers.

    haha yeah you were right about the paint ,but its a small price to pay to get his head down to something that resembles normal

    still got a little to go by the stink of him but better than it was ,moved him over to vintage lion rock body a doc mego flesh female suit ,had to cut the color off the cape ,it was huge ,but its near enough for me now
