    Bruce Banner and Johnny Storm Inquiry

    I have a simple question in customizing the classic versions of Dr. Bruce Banner and Johnny Storm. What heads would best work for the classic Silver or Bronze Age versions of these 2 characters? For Johnny, finding the classic blue FF costume would be easy, but the head is my question. And for Bruce Banner, I figure a lab coat, white shirt and elastic purple pants. But again, the question is about the right head. And would I find these heads with Dr. Mego, Classic TV Toys or someone else? Inquiring mind wants to know.

    that's a personal choice for you. only you can decide which head you like best for each character. both sites have lots of heads to choose from

    I remember some discussion a while back on what head to use for Johnny Storm and someone suggested the Mattel Retro-Action Aquaman head. I thought that was a great suggestion. I wound up using that head for a Kid Colt kitbash I put together.

    It depends on if you are going to make any changes in the heads. Shazam has a good younger looking head for the hot head, but you'd need to at least paint the hair, if not re-do the style a bit. I can see the Aquaman as an alternative. For Bruce, I'm not sure if the Tony Nelson modern Mego might work with some glasses. I've also found the Bruce Wayne heads from Classic TV toys with the different hair colors are good generic heads, and they do have one with brown hair. The blonde version might work for Johnny, too.

    I've wondered if the Mego Shazam head might work for a Bill Bixby/David Banner from the Incredible Hulk TV series.

    I wish someone who has great talent at sculpting heads would make one for an 8-inch Bill Bixby custom.

    I used Galahad/Will Scarlet for my Banner, but I think Mego Corp's Maj. Nelson might work well, too.

    Someone made a Bruce Banner out of Hutch by painting his hair brown and adding glasses that I thought looked good. I had intended to do one like that for myself, but never got around to it.
    Expectation is the death of discovery.

    Haven't seen one like that; I used Strasky as David as a kid...
