Need advice on replacing Weathermatic LX series sprinkler head

I have a Weathermatic LX Series Sprinkler System that was installed in 2004. Two of my sprinkler heads are broken (blowouts) and I want to order replacements. I measured the sprinkler head and it is 5.25 inches. So I think I am in need of LX3 sprinkler heads. My question is will the sprinkler heads shown on the Weathermatic/Sprinkler Warehouse website work in my 2004 system because the ones on these website do not look like the one I have. Mine does not have the blue top.

Also, no one sells the Weathermatic sprinkler heads locally. Does anyone know of a Rainbird or Orbit model that will work (found these two locally)? Thanks.

Not sure if you were wanting to include links, but they are not appearing in your post.

The colored top piece is a removable "flush plug" that allows a newly installed head(s) to be flushed out by running the zone, prior to installing any spray nozzle(s)
