I would square off the corners of those teeth with a file or x-acto blade, so the holes don't look like ovals.   :duim:

It looks like more can be taken out of the eyes. There is a distinct mold line on the inside of the helmet. Make sure you are trimmed up to that.

+1 on the round teeth. They should be squared off.

+1 on the file. Teeth are a personal preference , some prefer round, some more squared. I do prefer the sharper squared off teeth, but the roundies don't look too awfully bad... Good luck with your out post.

I have ordered my ATA kit as well. On the waitlist waiting.

 

I have a question, I have seen different takes on this but does the kit need to be painted. I know the ABS already comes glossy/shiny but should you create another coat to give the correct movie effect? Or just leave as is since the ABS material is already ideal?
