Wow, I'm going to use variables (h>heads, e>eyes, a>arms):

a. 2h, 2e, 4a __ 73=a+b+c+d, 27=g+h+e+f

b. 2h, 2e, 2a __ 28=c+d+g+h, 72=a+b+e+f

c. 2h, 3e, 4a __ 21=a+c+e+g, 79=b+d+f+h

d. 2h, 3e, 2a __ 12=c+d, 88=a+b+e+f+g+h

e. 1h, 2e, 4a __ 9=g+c, 81=a+b+d+e+f+h

f. 1h, 2e, 2a __ 8=a+c, 82=b+d+e+f+g+h

g. 1h, 3e, 4a __ 3=c

h. 1h, 3e, 2a __ You are looking for f (normality, or, if you like, any case that does not present the unusual features mentioned)

c=3

g=9-c=6

a=8-c=5

d=12-c=9

e=21-a-c-g=21-5-3-6=7

b=73-a-c-d=73-5-3-9=56

f=72-a-b-e=72-5-56-7=4

Please check if I am wrong.

101-you forgot to mention the invisible alien that is a hyper-intelligent shade of the color blue.
