I did that as well and I am sure some will love to have these options available, but I would have stuck to faces suitable for the WW2 period even if historic faces are utilised.

The detail of these heads got me interested in what Head Sets 1 and 2 contain. Set 1 seems to be based on the Terminator films and Set 2 seems to b a selection of older gentleman, although they may be famous faces that I'm just not recognising at this time in the morning.

The middle one initially reminded me of Eisenhower from the front, but then you notice the goatee and think Trotsky. As to the rest: the first reminds me of John A. Macdonald; and is that the Greek god Apollo in the second from left? They are simply poor choices for the time period in the 20th Century that most of us model. Weird offering.

Given the slight angle of the head to the neck, I'd say it's Alexander the Great.

One is definitely George Washington and the curly haired one looks like a classical Greco-Roman head, probably an emperor.

The bald guy with beard and mustache at the far end looks like he might be Socrates.
