Does someone know somewhere you can buy human reference figurines whether it be for anatomy or pose? I can rememeber seeing muscle and anatomy reference figures somewhere, but I can't seem to find them. I'm assuming that there's quite a small niche market for such things out there. I searched through some art supply places online and tried other searches without any luck. I can only seem to find those classic simple wooden figures which help with pose.

Thanks.

Well I've found some of these if you guys are interested...

Also check out this skeleton glass block (http://www.3bscientific.com/produkte/index.cfm?open=http%3A%2F%2Fwww%2E3bscientific%2Ecom%2Fprodukte%2Fshow%5Fdetail%2Ecfm%3Fgrpid%3D264%26PartNum%3DMAA10G).

This (http://anatomical.com/product.asp?pn=AS3) is ideally what I was after, but just a tad out of my price range.

Thanks Ordibble, that's what I was after! Although, those figures are 24" tall... I was after something about half the size. Maybe 24" will have to do.

Oddly enough, the 18" Spiderman is a great one, with 67 points of articulation. Observe Spidey's triumph over Mannikin:

You can find these online at KayBee and Target. Just don't get conned into paying $60 like some online stores are selling it for, since it retails for $30.
