@Nickorama, @newt, @roberto, @PurohanPirilu, @grandpa, @illimunati and everyone else kind enough to view this.

Since I most probably won't be using the designs anymore, I thought I might just post them here and see what you guys think. Sorry it's been a few days.

This is the original design

And here are the others....hmmm.....see if you can guess each of them correctly, although that might not be too hard :D

Haha do you guys think I could possibly get away with using any? I think I could use the racing helmet...but not sure about the rest though....

The hockey mask might be okay, but Vader, and Iron Man are pretty iffy.
Not too sure about the Halo, and others.

@newt. Haha yeah, I guess vader and iron man are pretty obvious candidates for lawsuits. I think the ultraman one should also be one. Ya, I am really confused about the halo one. The other two I think I can get away with......haha but I guess they themselves might not get much attention cause maybe not many people will be able to tell which famous characters or people they are from.

@roberto. Thanks for the compliment!

@rekjl
Yeah, they may be a little too close to the mark.

How about trying to recolor the original shape with the "famous" colors without changing the actual shape much, if at all?
Kind of like what was done here :

(But you may have to choose different characters, with a nearly unmistakable color scheme.)

@PurohanPirilu, wow that link was really interesting! Haha it is so amazing that it was so simple, yet almost unmistakable!

@grandpa. thank you. Haha ya, it is in place to protect people, but just that some greedy lawyers are always looking for opportunities.

Actually, I am thinking of using a new approach. I was thinking of using famous human characters and adding their accessories to my robot character. For example, captain jack sparrow. Put some of his dreadlocks, moustache and beard and a bandana. While it is instantly recognizable (hopefully), it should still be significantly different because it is a robot with robot features still. I was thinking of going this way. So far, I only got captain jack sparrow, TMNT, and the Stig (hehe the racing helmet in case you didn't realize). I need 5 characters...so am still thinking of 2 more.......hehe might try to see if I can do a God of War Kratos version!
