History of Heads
Due to the unpopularity of the original heads back in 2008-2009; Roblox stopped making separate heads for a while until January 2017, when they started making separate heads again that are all suited to be able to wear hats on them.
On January 16, 2017, all heads, except Roundy, Trim and Blockhead, were taken off sale. Which result the community being sad because Peabrain were demanded. However, 5 new heads were released, and those 5 heads are currently on sale.
When Rthro was released on October 22nd, 2018, Roblox started making new heads to be bundled with Rthro. These heads are often used by trollers because putting on a non-Rthro Bundle (usually block body type) it will looks weird and/or tiny, Some people took this one step further and put the BFG Giant Ears on Rthro heads without ears, resulting in a extremely weird avatar.

Due to the removal of all classic heads and the update of releasing heads that look similar, popular youtubers such as greenlegocats123 have criticised on how all the released heads look similar and why the old heads should not have been taken offsale as seen here
There are 17 different types of "mesh" files inside of the Roblox local fonts file, which contains every mesh of these heads, including the Normal Head, Roundy, Trim and Blockhead, the offsale catalog heads do not use a special mesh ID, but use Bevels which were removed, these are now seen as identical Cylinder Meshes and normally break when the humanoid is removed, however the mesh files do not break as they are Special Meshes.
