wooden, art mannequin with a more flexible model. A few months ago, colleague and blog buddy, Andy Fish, had mentioned a neat, little figure that could be posed into more human positions. Sounded perfect. When I went to Amazon, there were a ton of these figures ranging in price from $27.00 to $100 plus change. Some came with multiple body parts (hands, arms, legs) and some assembly required.
A shout to Andy not only got me the brand name but the exact link as well. And the figure was the last one in stock! Andy's recommendations are always spot on. Yeah, he's a keeper, too. So before someone else could scarf up the figure, a few clicks and the little dude was mine in two days.
The figure, Figma Archetype: he is about 4 inches tall. It came with a stand and 4 sets of hands. Normal, jazz hands, an open fist, and a closed fist. I was a bit confused by the figure because at first, I thought he was a she. (Not that there is anything wrong with that.) What are supposed to be pectoral muscles looked more like moobs. An hour glass figure gave way to shapely legs, but the arms were over developed for a female figure. Looking at the packaging was a product number 01 followed by the male symbol, ♂ Ok, it's a dude. Either way, he's great, and I've named him Ben Dover. Yeah, I just slay me.
