Okay, maybe I’m the only one who didn’t know this…    I haven’t seen much speculation online as to where Dr. Venom’s head came from, though Lanny Latham from the Collectors’ Club did confirm that it was retooled from the vintage line.  I’d combed through the archives and couldn’t quite figure it out.  But thanks to some dilligent GeneralsJoes commentors, who set me straight in my review post, I know now that Venom’s head was retooled from the Mortal Kombat Liu Kang!
Great detective work.  I love digging this stuff up, and I’m consistently surprised at how much mileage the Club can get out of those older tools (the ones still left in existence, anyway).  Check out the comparison image below.  Many features look similar…the hair, the nose.  But obviously the neck ball was removed, and the hair must have been trimmed up a bit as well.  Any thoughts from anyone else?
