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.


You'd think it was the most basic thing, but noooo..... "Let's see, we have one green head and one red head and one green body. I don't know which head goes on the green body".

Very interesting on the shot of the left bomb gauntlet. Note the red, green, blue, purple colors of the detail pieces. Never would have noticed that before if it wasn't for this picture. I am loving the reference photos of the RAM chest armor as well.

I think the P2 head on the BORG body is an animatronic mouth one. On the picture of the back side, if you zoom in you can see a wire coming out the middle of the back of the head and partway down the back there's a little silver box attached to the end of it. Larry's animatronic head (with eyes) also includes a little silver box at the end of a wire similar to this.
