Awesome, great news. Brett and Parker are a must have for me.

P.S. Neca finally fixed* the neck joint on the alien warrior!

Do you think that works with all of the Aliens that use the Ultimate warrior body mold, or do you think it's a running change that got introduced with the Scorpion Alien?

I've checked my Ultimate warriors and sadly, nope. They have the old sculpt.

The Scorpion alien is the first one to get this, hopefully not the last. Neca has a weird tradition it seems. Just like with the ultimate bodies for both the predator and alien, we first see them on some Kenner variation (Predator wave 16, the Blue Kenner Alien and Arcade pink Warrior) and now this. The main line gets the changes after a Kenner variation does.

I hope we see this appear on the Ultimate warriors in a second addition of sorts, or that at least the 40th anniversary Big Chap gets this.

I'm an articulation junkie. These things always make me excited, but I so wasn't expecting to find this. No review mentioned or showed that articulation point. And how could they when the neck was stiffer than the regular one ever was. I'm just glad I didn't brake the sucker and that I got that range of movement out of it.

Why the hell didn't Neca add this sooner to their warriors? Now I'm gonna wait until they eventually release the warriors with that joint before I go crazy with the army building.

The telling point will be the Arcade aliens coming out in May. If the Razor alien has it, which uses the warrior body mold, than we are set to see it on most aliens.

When I looked on Amazon they had the Arcade Aliens for like $26 with $10 shipping; I think my preorder with BBTS is like $70 shipped for the three so I’m going to wait for them to ship my order.

I've had an amazon gift card for about a month now so I didn't worry about the shipping charge  8)
This is the first time since the original Hicks/Hudson/Warrior wave I've ordered them online though so I'm hoping I don't get a bad batch.

Just got a notification from BBTS that they fulfilled my preorder; I'll have to see if I have any other preorders on the horizon that are about to be fulfilled, I don't mind waiting to have everything shipped together.
