Typical - after months of working out a base figure for my Starbrand custom, I go ahead and find a reasonable deal on a Marvel Select Ghost Rider, only to see the BSG Apollo in the LCS during the week. Apollo doesn't have the boots that GR has, but it's something to keep in mind I guess  Undecided

The Adam Warlock head would probably be more in scale with Apollo. Once my Adam arrives (hopefully this week) I will have all three of those figs and can do a comparison for you.

I was thinking about this,if the Warlock Head doesn't work out i have another possible option.
I have a Movie Flash Gordon Head here that would probably work out too.Be using it for a Custom soon but if it's the choice i could probably make a Cast of it before i commit it to it's new character.

Yeah that's a good question. It's an option, anyway.

I think the face I'm looking for is a bit longer than the Warlock head has, but I'd still be keen to see it next to both GR and Apollo.

Did you have a look at his other stuff? FARK. There's a Silverhawk that is insane. I don't even know who Silverhawk is, and I want it.

Here's your comparison shot. Not sure which Apollo you meant so included both.



Here's a link to a bigger one too:

Heh.

I wasn't planning on using Apollo's head. I was more interested in his biker-style jacket (the blue one). But to answer your question: I'm OK with hair sculpting. I sculpted the hair on Badger, and that was my first shot. I'm still looking at some Street Fighter figures. The Vera extra head looks pretty good. I'd mostly just have to cut away some hair.
