The S.H. Figuarts lineup is crammed with awesome figures, but it looks like Bandai is expanding into the art supply realm with these male and female “Body-kun” and “Body-chan” models.
They feature 30 points of articulation (natural poses only) and come with a variety of accessories and parts (including swords and guns). Basically, if you’re looking to draw some anime-style action, these would be a fantastic upgrade over traditional figure models.
