You mean the push broom?

He's not actually holding it, his fist is just in front of it, so it gives the illusion that he is.

Got my Clayface case today!! WOOT! Love him. BUT, am I the only one concerned about how those rubbery arms will hold up? Could they end up dry rotting like rubber bands do? Just curious. I'd be very wary of a kid playing with one. The arms seem like they could be torn very easily to me.

Nope I have the same concern about the arms. I also wish they didn't give the female figures the upper arm swivels, because with the arms being as thin as they are they seem very week as well.

That's true, I noticed that posing Catwoman today, it feels like the arm is about to snap off if you try to swivel it at the shoulder with any force at all.

Speaking of which, here are some more photos:

So does Clayface have ball-jointed shoulders?

I don't think Clayface's shoulders are ball jointed. I think they are more like cut joints with a wire frame arms. Because they can be moved outwards like a ball-jointed should, but they don't have the same range of motion as a true ball-jointed shoulder.

I'm worried about that too...I wish they would have kept those arms regular plastic and just cut joints into 'em...

I love the bendy arms and think it is what makes the figure so unique. Just means you have to keep one MOC in case they don't hold up.

My wife found the remains of the Clayface wave at the Nanuet NY TRU this afternoon around 1PM. They had 3 Jokers, 1 Bruce to Batman & a Nightwing left. She picked me up the Nightwing as she knew I wanted another one of him. I kind of wish she had called first though as I'd have had her buy the Bruce as well...so I could have made another masked off Batman like the SDCC figure a few years back. I've made one in the past, but wanted to try it with the series 3 Batman this time.
