Hey, I've noticed a couple of recent DCC figures that have soft rubber sleeves to represent bulky clothes. The Arkham Origins Anarky figure and the Crime Syndicate Deathstorm figures both have "puffy" sleeves, and rather than sculpt an elbow joint in the sleeve, they went with an internal arm skeleton with flexible soft rubber sleeve. This hides the joint, but I'm really worried about the long-term durability of the material. I can easily see the material ripping, or just rotting with age. Why, o why, did they go this route? I'd rather have an "unsightly" elbow joint than a rotting or ripped arm. Am I the only one bothered by this?
