I'm still waiting for my DC Universe Classics wave 4 to arrive so today we'll pick another one of the great DC Super Heroes action figures by Mattel to review.
Today's review is Mattel's DC Superheroes - Clayface
Batman, Joker, Catwoman, Nightwing and Bruce Wayne. I have posted a full checklist of Mattel's DCSH toy line for people to see what other characters are available.
This Clayface figure was a completely unique sculpt compared to the others from this set. It was the first time that Mattel has made a Clayface action figure and there weren't any other characters like him so they could not re-use any old parts from previous models.
The design of the figure is great. The sculpt seems to be inspired by the Batman Animated Series version of Clayface. Its just layers and layers of oozing clay like skin. The arms are also unique compared to other figures. They are a softer rubbery type material with bendy wires inside that give the arms a little more flexibility. This was a bit of a questionable route in my opinion. I'm not sure how these arms would hold up over time but for collectors who take care of their action figures, it probably won't be an issue. The arms are also different sizes too. His left is bigger with a few spikes sticking out while the right arm is more like the rest of the body. The sculpt is nicely detailed and looks really awesome in my opinion. Probably the best figure from this set. Clayface stands just over 7 inches tall.
Sculpt/Design - 10, Paint - 10, Accessories - 0, Articulation - 8, Fun - 10
