plus the old head looks nothing like a 'fish' imo, it has fur and goofy eyes, etc. like some kind of diseased cat head. What's that orange crap around the eyes? i never could figure that out. looks like some type of skin disease to me.
The new head has more fishlike eyes, better detail and is colored to match the rest of the figure. and no fur. only good thing I can say about the vintage head is i like that it has bottom jaw teeth.
glad they have two heads to choose from, but the cardback head is the only one that's being used on my Merman. just as the mustached head will be used on my MAA when it comes.
