View Full Version : Where to buy reference figures?

05 May 2005, 06:37 AM
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.

Also check out this skeleton glass block (

This ( 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.
