Looking for some input . . .
I have a custom I need a red footbal helmet for. I'm seeing two options:
1) I have an AJ football helmet in my parts bucket, but it needs to be painted -- what paint would work best (if at all) on that Mego plastic?
2) Is there a mego-scale football helmet available elsewhere? I remember those ones on the .25 bubble prize machines at the front of the grocery store when I was a kid . . . anyone know if anything like that's available now?
Thanks for the help!

Whatever paint you end up using, using a primer first will help the plastic stick better and longer.
Riddell still makes the small, close to mego sized helmets for almost every team in the universe including college, the NFL and even the CFL. They also sell individual helmets on Amazon

These are actually closer to 1/6 scale- fits 12" figures than 1/9 or mego scale. My daughters use some of the ones I have on their Ken dolls and they fit on my fuzz head GI Joes. I think they'r make mego's look like bobbles heads by comparison. Better painting the AJ helmet. At least you know it will fit.
