@Typps Glad I got you interested in G+ but I don’t think I can take credit for the Rating rich snippet. We had a small issue with that which our devs took care of : http://themeforest.net/forums/thread/-coming-soon-visual-refresh-/120059?page=60#990848 :)

Looks like Google eventually pics up the authorship image for items too, it also adds sitelinks to item pages with this ( but the review snippet goes away ) https://www.google.com/search?q=total%20wordpress%20theme

Looks like Headshots aren’t showing up at the moment in U.S.

Maybe it takes a bit of time for indexing to happen.

I get the Rating Stars.

It’s one or the other I haven’t seen both of them simultaneously .. When I tried just then I got the ones without the head-shot too. Its quite random from what I can see.

One obvious situation when your author snippets might show up is before the review snippets kicks in, during the initial few days of your item being indexed.
