I'm looking to find a few action figures, of no specific brand or genre, that have very good articulation on their joints, so that I could pose them in various martial arts positions for some pictures I want to take of them. Basically I am keeping a martial arts notebook of techniques I learn, and rather than hand-drawing them sloppily in my notebook, at the end of each night after I take a class, I want to pose the action figures doing those techniques, take digital pictures of them, and store those "notes" that way.
I'm thinking a larger action figure might be necessary, and I'm not ruling out something like a Mr. Fantastic type/Gumby figure that I can just bend the arms and legs into position. It won't look "realistic" but it will suffice to create a visual representation for me to store. I need to be able to have the figures kicking, kneeing and throwing elbows, so that's why a Gumby-type arm/leg figure might make the most sense, since I don't know if there exists a super articulable action figure that would otherwise do what I want.
Bonus points if it could be something cool like Marvel, DC, Starwars, etc. Any ideas on where to start looking?
