. . . Aside from the lighting issues, I think you also need to play with the head sizes. They feel a little small relative to the bodies. A good way to make sure they match is to take the layer with the new head and make it about 50% transparent. Line it up with the old one and line up the eyes. Then keep re-sizing until the eyes on each one match as close as possible.
When swapping heads, I usually drag guides to mark the centers of the eyes, the mouth, and the bottom of the chin. I use those to size and align the new head. Also, a useful trick is to occasionally flop the image left-to-right and back again as you work. It keeps your perspective fresh.
