I didnt like how generic my General Veers looked when compared to other ATAT commander mini figs.

so after watching ESB, I noticed he has goggles. well a few short minutes with a knife and screwdriver (to drill dimples for the goggles) I gave him goggles.

Well done. But if the goggles would sit a bit lower, they would look more authentic. Else, great mod!

I agree, maybe add a mic (can be drawn on the mf face)
Got an issue? Here's a tissue..

Where did you get the black goggles from?
Or is that a custom painted part?

Simple but really nice addition I must say, improves the overall look of Gen. Veers a couple of times better. And the sharpie job looks very clean IMO. Good job. :thumbup:

Looks great! Now if we could just get Lego to give us a General Veers with the correct rank insignia...

I'm willing to accept it as a typical stylistic simplification for a LEGO minifigure.

Hello!

Very good-looking figure, indeed. :classic:

Trying to answer the original question, I guess your General Veers best goes without headset, as all headset minifigure heads would not have this typical face expression, unfortunately.

Here is a list with all minifigure heads with headset, just for the record. :classic:

Cheers,
