Indeed, I use that head a lot for a beastly warrior. B) Or, for an enraged Revolution soldier person whose name excapes me..... :9

I like DSH's (almost all of them) because of the variety that can be produced. ;)

...Can we have a 'both' option? Because I'm not really biased. I like them all :)

Couldn't agree more. ;) Although I'm not the biggest fan of the CW heads.

I'm more about consistency. I have a pretty large collection of body parts and I'd prefer to use either all classic faces or all current. I do like the current ones so I've been finding myself using those more than anything else.

Why did this picture make me laugh?
Anyway, I like the pupilless faces the best. Personally I don't mind mixing them, the only problem that bothers me is the other one: yellows and fleshies. Fleshies don't let me put Indiana Jones or such as cameos in my films.
I feel proud to own some Star Wars and Harry Potter sets with old yellow people.

I miss these faces:

They were so common back in the 90's yet they had to dissappear. The classic smileys still appear from time to time though because of the Grandfather Clause rule.

I didn't include the "This Poll is Flawed" option, which it is :P I also didn't include the Clone heads of the Fleshies because I don't care for either and actually, I don't think I own any Clone heads. When the double sided faces came out, I was not very fond of them. Depending on the headgear you use with them determines the actual usefulness. I love all the options though and will continue using them. I just find mixing them not to my liking. This is just my feelings on my own MOC's. I have seen others mix them in MOCs and I don't think I even notice. What we need now is for someone to take the old faces and update them with pupils so that they fit in better. B)

I like both old smiley faces and current new faces, but as many, only either at once without mixing.
Also, I don't consider the double faces to be its own kind (except the exo-force ones that is...), because if they are used well, they fit just right in.

Aaand rather random, but the new female face from Prince of Persia is growing on me, even though I dislike fleshies by default.

Yeah!
Also this one: http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?P=3626bp05
Anyway, even the classic smile isn't really used anymore... it only appears in promotional, custom or limited sets.
