Hello

Could someone please look into the twn052 minifigure included in
 
Set No: 3222  Name: Helicopter and Limousine
* 
3222-1 (Inv) Helicopter and Limousine
251 Parts, 4 Minifigs, 2010
Sets: Town: City: Airport
?

Minifigure link: https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?id=92187

The inventory says that the head is
 
Part No: 3626bpb0122  Name: Minifigure, Head Glasses Rectangular, Brown Thin Eyebrows, Smile Pattern - Blocked Open Stud
* 
3626bpb0122 Minifigure, Head Glasses Rectangular, Brown Thin Eyebrows, Smile Pattern - Blocked Open Stud
Parts: Minifigure, Head

with brown eyebrows but it seems to me that the minifigure image shows that it
has red eyebrows, which is part

 
Part No: 3626bpb0122b  Name: Minifigure, Head Glasses Rectangular, Red Thin Eyebrows, Smile Pattern - Blocked Open Stud
* 
3626bpb0122b Minifigure, Head Glasses Rectangular, Red Thin Eyebrows, Smile Pattern - Blocked Open Stud

So which is correct: The image or the inventory?

And by the way, I have these 7 heads in my collection. I'm not convinced
that the color difference is very significant, although the two heads at the
top look more red than the four at the bottom, and the third head from the top
(with thicker eyebrows) looks somewhere in between. Are these all shades of brown
or are some of them red?

Not really sure what to do with this request. The PCC in the set instructions
matches the inventoried head with brown eyebrows and also this head with red
eyebrows and a recessed stud:

 
Part No: 3626cpb0122b  Name: Minifigure, Head Glasses Rectangular, Red Thin Eyebrows, Smile Pattern - Hollow Stud
* 
3626cpb0122b Minifigure, Head Glasses Rectangular, Red Thin Eyebrows, Smile Pattern - Hollow Stud
Parts: Minifigure, Head

The photo from the original submitter was replaced with a higher quality photo,
so that's no help. I had this set back in the day, but I mix my parts together
and have no idea which head is correct. So the PCCs could be at fault here,
or the photos, or the inventory, or there may be no problems at all.

At the risk of being unhelpful, I fear that the only way to check into this would
be to open a new set and look. Or, perhaps someone who has an original set could
check and let us know.

Other than that, I don't see much which can be done. As for the 7 heads
shown in your photo, I agree that there is color variation and am not sure what
to do about that either.

Sorry.

On a positive note, your post did prompt me to submit a new photo of the set
at the maximum size BrickLink allows. That should make it easier to see set
details.

I'm sorry, but I don't know. I've added an inventory note to the
minifigure and marked your request as completed.
