That head looks just a little bit too big on him. That head is a phenomenal sculpt though. I wonder if someone like SpyMagician could shrink it down a bit?

Part of the reason that the Hasbro Creeper is so great looking is it was actually sculpted by Glen Murakami. The Mattel one is actually useful to put next to DC Direct's Superman:Doomsday supermen.... they almost have the same head scale.

But the Mattel one is to small. (and Asiatic Prince's comment that the head is to small is bang on)

I guess that the sculpt trumps size in my book.
Did anyone manage to put the Kenner head on the Mattel body? (I'm looking at you An-Gel Sakura)

I used a little photoshop magic to see if it would work. What's your opinion?
Is it worth trying?

I don't know. It might work.

No, it needs to be shrunk down to in between the JLU head and the size it is now I think.

It's funny, that Creeper head reminds me of the cartoon Freakazoid.

I just picked this pack up from the post office yesterday and have to say in person the Creeper head does not bother me at all. When he's compared to the Hasbro one, sure it's tiny, but it's the same size as Adam Strange's head so it does not look out of place. Johnny Thunder on the other hand looks like he's from a completely different line and Speedy's head is weirdly deformed and looks way worse than in photo's.

I held up a spare Creeper head next to the JLU Creeper, and I think it is too big. It's unfortunate. I'm not sure if it's worth the trouble to try to fix it.
