NECA has revealed the rear cardback for their upcoming Aliens Series 2 Sergeant Craig Windrix. The figure is due to hit next month. The Sergeant Windrix figure is based on the brother of NECA sculptor Kyle Windrix. Craig is currently battling stomach cancer, and NECA is paying tribute to him with his very own figure. Craig recently underwent a very intensive surgery and is currently recuperating in the hospital. His family is keeping people updated on his progress. The staff at Toyark would like to send our well wishes to the brave Mr. Windrix as well as his family. We all hope for a speedy recovery.
