It does have a neck, but the neck doesn’t peg into the bonnet, it’s attached to the body via that armature. It’s always been that way. Probably a requirement of Jeep, to allow the bonnet to open. The head actually does end up under the bonnet, via the armature. I think for most of us this isn’t a dealbreaker, as long as it works properly on final copies - especially considering how kibble-free the rest of him is. If it’s a dealbreaker for you then sorry to hear that. It’s been pretty visible since last July.
