I don't think this has been posted already, just got a tip off from a friend that the new Profiles in History catalog is available to download. Remember those hero props shown off on The Lair including the flintlock pisotl and Danny's necklace- all up for sale.
Then there is the Borg head being sold alone, followed by an amagamation of suit pieces on the Borg costume. A chest armour has been put on instead of the Vindicator armour and the gauntlets are wrong too... see what you think of this. The description says "as seen in the Predator ship" but this looks a bit of a mess to me like they are just trying to cash in on a full suit display.

I wonder what happened to his armor. I just looked at it again, and I find it odd that they are selling the borg head alone but the full suit they are selling with what looks like a stunt P2

For those sculpting a P2 mask, they give you the measurements right there: 18"x14"

That suit....random P2 mask, Borg body, 2 silver bomb gauntlets from Boar, the silver-ish chest armor could very likely be from Ram.

The average joe will just see a predsuit, not a mishmash of parts,and those cracks will spread if left untreated, and you'll have a mannequin with pred scraps, there just counting on people not realising

In theory that would be a good idea but I don't think anyone would want to help pay for something they would never see because its in someone's house 1000's of miles away.

This is true, but @ least we would know it is in good hands from a liar brother or sister

Is that really the price range for that mix 'n match of things slapped on the suit? 20000 - 30000$ ?
 

Mr Fett

Yes. That's the same price range they had the Hippie mix-matched suit going for as well a few months ago. I never heard how much it actually sold for. Does anyone know?

With this particular auction, they should have listed the correct head with the body, and sold the P2 head separately instead of listing them as they did. This is the 3rd P2 suit I've seen them list in the last year, and all three have had mix-matched parts off of different bodies.

I may be wrong, but looking at these pieces again I think the head mix up may be down to Profiles. They have made mistakes before and if these pieces were delivered to them with the heads wrapped up seperately from the body then someone who didn't know could have put the wron head on for the photos. The Borg head is only on the mannequin for the photo and considering the Borg suit is complete with the correct feet and hands this must be a mistake. Plus they show the head next to a shot from the movie, though they have used main creature shots for different heads before.
When the auction pages are up I'm expecting to see a revision.

Never noticed how long the quills by the sideburns on the borg and the insert P2 pic are.all this time I thought they were the same as P1.
