DC Collectibles has unveiled it’s latest action figure based on 2011′s Batman: Arkham City video game…and it’s a doozy. Standing over thirteen inches tall, the Batman: Arkham City Clayface Deluxe Action Figure is officially the largest action figure that DC Collectibles has ever produced. The impressive figure will include switchable arms, an interchangeable head and eleven points of articulation. The articulation count is fewer than most of DC Collectibles’ previously released figures, but considering the size of this beast, we’ll be the last ones to complain.
The official Twitter account for the Batman: Arkham video game series posted a cryptic teaser image ahead of a special announcement that they say will be revealed on New Years Eve.

While one may immediately jump to their concerns about this changing the overall look and feel of the game, the article has stated that WB Games Montreal has been given full access to Rocksteady’s custom modified Unreal engine which gives us hope that most of the fan-favorite control elements will still remain at the game’s core.

Aww shucks, it appears that the much-talked about virtual acceptance speech made by the Joker at Spike TV’s Video Game Awards on Saturday was full of more fun than truths.
