Solution to fit 1:6 Soldier Story U.S. Navy Seal Team 10 Head onto Hot Toys Neck

Here's a suggested solution to fit Soldier Story U.S. Navy Seal Team 10 Head onto Hot Toys Neck.

As I thought the skin tone of the Soldier Story body didn't match the head, I tried to find a fix to get the head onto a Hot Toys True Type Caucasian neck, which is a better match.

Here's the neck post...

I examined the base of the head and found that it looked like a flap which could be removed. I used a pair of pincers to ply the flap open as it was glued on, and plunged the screw driver into the hole of the base and popped the flap off.

Next, I used a piece of tissue paper and poster putty...

I stuffed the piece of tissue paper to fill up the empty space in the head...

While it won't hold up to violent swings, the poster putty does stick to part of the inner lining in the head, which means that you can turn it upside down without it falling off.

And it's a better match, skin tone wise, than the default Soldier Story body.
