That video is completely fake. If he had a speedorz set this is not the way to demonstrate it, in about two months he's going to look very dumb.
The animal clans were chosen according to 'coolness' of creature in testing with kids.
The 'helmets' and minifigure heads together make up the character head, this allowed more colours to be used in creating the heads without investing in hugely expensive new printing machines, meaning we could put more bricks into the models.
Thanks for the insight into how and why the heads are designed that way Nabii. Personally I much prefer the two plus part heads that build around the classic heads. Like you used here, or in Atlantis and AQ. I'm not as fond of the single custom mold heads. They just never seem to have as much exp
ression or depth of character around the eyes.
Plus the animal head helms open up soon many fascinating MOC possibilities.

Two things I thought today looking at the recent pics of the minifigs.
1. This seems quite bloody for a theme. These characters are maimed and wounded. Quite grisly and grim really.
Have you taken a close look at the MF hero figures? They have all had so many parts and bits yanked off by monsters that I think they only have about 2 1/2 heroes spread thinly over 5 figs...
