A Custom A Day.... 365 days of custom figures Day 130 - The New Batman Adventures Clayface by Casimir
I am very proud to own this piece. Casimir is one of, if not the premier customizers of figures from the Timmverse. I follow his work religiously. On rare occasions on his website, Inanimate Objects he sells doubles of his work or older pieces that he has since updated and recreated. I was fortunate enough to buy this original Clayface from him almost a decade ago.
This piece is solid, huge and heavy. He maintains slight movement at his shoulders but I don't have the nerve to push to see if they will move completely. Since he was created others customizers have made castings of this exact figure so he is now more common in people's New Batman Adventures collections however this one is an original. Casimir doesn't do commission work and rarely sells his pieces so having this means a lot to me. As an artist Casimir is big definitely part of toy history.
A Custom A Day....
I began toy collecting as a hobby back in 1990 I have always had a
need for custom figures. Toy companies begin action figure lines, begin
to release individual characters to create teams and, more often than
not leave them incomplete. Many collectors find that custom figures
pollute their collection's authenticity by not being mass produced
creations from the toy companies that created the preexisting toy lines.
I disagree. I feel a quality custom action figure enhances a
collection and help create a complete picture.
