There are three options as I see it:
1. Damaged helm with some sort of misprint head
2. Mistakenly released new fig
3. This is a prank.
Personally I believe it's just a poorly-done prank, as someone pointed out that the "x" mark changes sides of the helm, but I'd like to get everyone's opinion on it :-)

1. Why wouldn't he have noticed the "x" before he bought it? I'm sure he looked at it before buying.
2. The fact that he didn't notice it before opening it is suspicious. You can tell that he already took it out of the package and put it back in. Look at where the gun's supposed to be.
3. The face under the helmet doesn't look like LEGO quality. Unless that guy can take an up-close, detailed picture, than I'm going to consider it otherwise.
4. It's too much of a big mistake to not be noticed by LEGO. I'm sure they do thorough checks of the figures before and after packaging. If it was a prototype then what's it doing there? How would it end up in packaging facilities.
5. Last but not least, It's a customization website. The guy probably just did a custom and wanted to do a prank with it.
So my suspicions are that this is indeed a custom.
