Another Source For Heads?
I was at Michael's today and I came across cake topper dolls. They had some that were approximately Barbie scale, but they also had smaller ones and I thought the smaller ones appeared to be in Mego scale (even though the bodies on them are tiny). I bought a package and took some pictures. They do seem to be in the correct scale for 8 inch Mego ladies (the neck h opening had to be enlarged a bit and I stuck one on a CTVT female body, pic below)...A possible source for lady heads for your Mego figures?
The heads are a flexible vinyl or PVC (they aren't too squishy) with rooted hair in different colors (blond, red, brown and black). They're not perfect, they all look very happy (maybe their faces could even be repainted?), they aren't much on ethnic diversity either (they're all Caucasian girls) and they all have rooted hair in a shoulder-length bob style. Perhaps there are more out there, that are of different ethnic backgrounds and maybe some with longer hair? Oh...They were $6.40 something for the package of four. I have no idea if anybody has suggested these before, but I thought I'd let you folks know (photos below)....And I apologize for rambling so much...LOL!
The little cake doll bodies will go into the recycle bin.
