"Artists Dummy" , posted Mon 7 Mar 11:28post reply

Okay, in amungst my art supplies is an artists dummy. Now, this dummy is okay and serves it's purpose, but during my surfing I came across this picture with a white figure in it. This is the perfect dummy and I've been looking for one just like this for a long time now. Does any one have more info on this figure? Can I get it in both male and female? I must have!!!

Not sure... I don't think I've ever seen anything but the regular Mannekin that was in the first link. Are you sure the second wasn't some sort of Japanese-only artist's mannequin?

Onslaught is indeed right, that's a Microman figure.

Go down to your local comic shop there are Batman and Catwoman single packs OR Batman/Batgirl 2-pack featuring the male and female figures, aside from the heads they're the same basic generic bodies you see there (there are 'generic' and futuristic themed micromen out there too, but the Batman ones should be easiest for you to find)... the single packs are $10 while the 2-pack is $20.

I actually made this same switch myself, my wooden art dummy just wouldn't get into any dynamic poses that the micromen figures could easily.






yeah it's not funny
