The spines on his calves are a separate piece made of a soft plastic, like the blue chest overlay and gauntlet power strips. It should be interesting to see how these hold up. Take a close look and make sure yours has his belt and all his parts intact- he comes with no accessories. This is a cool and unique figure that I'm glad to have in my diverse DCUC collection.
