Swappable Head Figures

Hello everyone, I'm working on a prototype of my game where the players are switching their "heads" around.

Right now I'm using large corks with smaller corks stuck in the top, but am looking for a more elegant solution.

Lego people aren't monochromatic enough to work visually.

I found these: http://www.spielematerial.de/en/game-components/weltneuheit-3-teilige-po... but the shipping is pretty steep.

Does anyone have any suggestions for prototyping these pawns? I just need player figures whose heads can be swapped out.

I also don't own a drill or anything like that.

Prototype? Just use cardboard. Easy, fast, and you don't have to stick to the idea, you're just trying to test basic gameplay.

I have a solution for you. Visit The Game Crafter (TGC) and...

It may not be the "HEAD" but it's a way of swapping colors and preserving your colored piece (Joystick)...

It also costs a WHOLE $0.18 for this combination. Again good for prototyping, if you need a "head" because of theme, well then you can look into custom pieces when the time comes...

I would just print out cards

I would just print out cards with a base on 1 and a head on the other. Just for playtesting-sake.
