Combaticons without Protectobots? That ain't right.

I think the fact that they are sunken in rather than just leaving the opening for the kreon eyes to show through... but also I can't place what you're using as a reff for the helmet design. I'm guessing simplified G1 cartoon? as opposed to how the toy head looked?

My designs tend to be created from composites of four or five pictures that I have open in other windows. Most the versions I was using for Hot Spot were coming from Marvel comics, I think.

Another reason I tend to avoid using this kind of head as a helmet is how often I find heads get stuck in Hasbro's helmets.

I've also been considering creating "filler" eyes for some of these heads...a customizer could paint them in another color and then pop them in the hollows of the helmet.

That makes a lot of sense... I dig it.

Oh, I don't know that I'll ever produce these, but I thought them an interesting idea :)
