The more I think about these cardboard cutouts, the more impressed I am. They're not just floating heads, each one has a proportionate amount of collar to give it a solid base. Markus and Shadi's are quite well-cut around the ears, in fact you could almost re-take the photos without the goggles, cutout the heads and then put the goggles on the cutouts (maybe ver 2.0).
Also you could now setup a photo opportunity in your studio with the life-size decapitated bodies, have people stand behind them to become mad scientists
Now I'm picturing the special briefcase where the cutout heads are kept and wondering where Conan brings it for those just-in-case moments
