Having been frustrated with old school wooden drawing mannequins for a long time, I have been looking around for alternatives, and then I found this:

I ordered a sample, the box goes with instructions, in Japanese though:

The hands are removable and there are quit a few choices:

There is a Katana included with suitable hands:

It can stand up by itself:

What scale is it? It doesn't say on the box and is quite a lot smaller than the artists maquette.

I measure 14.5 cm from the heel to the top of the head(observe that the lense angle make the foot look like it's below the mark, but it isn't), they claim, 15 cm on homepage.

This looks great, the old wooden models were useless. Just need one of a horse and the sculptor in me may be born yet.

This flexible plastic guy looks really useful, thanks for sharing the info here!
But may I ask how much one has to pay for it?

I ordered from US, so with the shipping to Sweden the cost was 460 SEK, that is 41.25 USD/42.11 Euro.
