    Where would I get a black male head?

    So I'm thinking of doing James Rhodes Iron Man and it's gonna be simple. I just need to put a new head on a Mego Iron Man body. Only problem is, I don't know where to find a black male head. I was thinking of repainting a Mr. Fantastic head, but that's blackface. So... any 8" black male figures whose head I can use?

    The new Muhammad Ali figure is your best bet.

    Ali is a good choice. Other options that come immediately to mind are:

    AA Action Jackson
    EMCE Night of the Living Dead

    Been down this road, not a lot of people of colour, here are some unmentioned options:

    David Kano Classic TV Toys Space:1999
    Michael Jordon from Space Jam doll heads fit on new Mego bodies
    FTC Obama

    OK, but back in the day, Rhodey had hair (unlike his MCU incarnation.)

    I named two other options with hair.

    I think I'm gonna get that because after all I am using a Mego Iron Man body.

    Actually Terrance Howard and Don Cheadle had hair when playing the role... admittedly less on Cheadle.

    However, Brian's suggestion is still helpful to others (like me) who had no idea that about that Jordan head until I saw his custom. Again, not a lot of options for people of color.
