Silly DC Collectibles! When will you learn that we will always spot the errors and short cuts you take. Generally you do great work, and we all enjoy it! But please, maybe stop and take a last look and ask yourself “is this correct?” Sometimes, the honest answer will be “no.”
The DC Collectibles BTAS Clayface figure is a solid attempt, but falls short of perfection in two ways. First, he’s too short. (Ironically, he fits in great with the old Kenner/Hasbro/Mattel stuff.) I didn’t care to tackle the height problem. But the other issue was the basic, non-screaming head. It was all kinds of wrong. It was as if all the reference art was screen-grabs of in-between moments, instead of model sheets. So I broke out the Magic Sculpt and did my best to fix it. I don’t claim it to be 100% accurate (and in fact I’ve seen some other customizers tackle this same problem with amazing results), but it’s better than what we got out of the box.
