Here is a picture of a set sold in the pathfinder forums. The fans are very strong and keep my head in my shoretrooper helmet pretty cool!

I'm not sure of the exact type but you can either buy this set or at least buy the same fans on amazon Smile

I also build fans that work great in Clone buckets. Sales threads on CTD, Mercs, BHG, and TDH, or PM me for additional details.

I'm actually looking for a fan as well for my Rodian head. Any other recommendations?

Those are really tough since there's almost no room inside. I've heard of some using the 3/4" box fans in the snout, but these move almost no air.

I've noticed the lack of air so far, but I'm impressed with the amount of space inside it. If I put my older glasses on carefully, I can wear them inside the mask so being able to see is a big bonus! I don't have to be "Blind Greedo." Smile

I'm thinking I might be able to put a fan on top of the inside, or maybe a small one right around the snout area.

The ones I use are ~ 2" square, and about 1/2" thick if you want to mock up something to see if they fit. I can always rig up a longer cord to allow you to hide the battery in a pocket.

I run 2 "squirrel' fans in my Greedo nose area. They pull air from the mouth hole and help a lot. These fans, a wicking material balaclava, and anti fog on lenses help make it bearable. I bought the fans and battery box from ebay for under $4.
