Is it just me, or are these new NECA aliens like impossible to find at the 20-dollar price point?

overseas dealers and exclusive online retailers(BBTS, theNECAstore etc.) normally get their hands on these waves first, so prices tend to reflex that

but

TOYS R US just put out BLUE today for 16.99 online and BLUE has started to show up in stores

CHAP and WINDRIX should be showing up real soon

since i usually get 3 or more, so I wait to order them online, receive free shipping through TRUS
and avoid the premium online prices and the stores all together

Yeah, I thought about starting to order entire cases and then re-selling all but one of the figures I want; hopefully cutting down my final cost. But I don't even have that much disposable income.

Anybody else wind up with a bow-legged warrior? The ankles on one of mine are bent inwards.

Broke one of the arms clean off one of these. I super-glued it back on, but now it has limited articulation. This was after freezing it to hopefully harden up the plastic enough to force bend the hingeball joint.

My other one is being stubborn, as well. Any tips? I considered trying olive oil, but I remain unconvinced it would penetrate the joint to lubricate it.

i would try soaking it in warm water, and let it sit for 30 min to an hour

hopefully that will help

You'll have to boil the water to get it to do anything really. I rain mine under hot water and it had little effect on those super hard joints.i have now learned that freezing is a good way to go after opening the aliens as I had 2 warriors break.

Well, be careful. The freezer trick resulted in a broken-off arm for me. Hot water worked...until the figure got back up to room temp, and the joint was stuck again. I tried jamming a hobby knife in the joints to loosen it, but it was too tight to even do that. Somewhere I have some silicone lubricant I might try...
