Figures that can do a horse stance?

Posted in Custom Workstation

Hi folks,
I've been lurking a long time while I hone my very amateur skills. I was hoping for some advice on bucks (or at least lower bodies) with good enough articulation that they can do a classical martial arts horse stance, like so:




I found a wwe figure with a head that looks very much like my wife who is a kung fu black belt, so that's my interest. The figure would require a good range of motion at the hip, probably rocker ankles, cuts at the thigh and maybe the calf. In kung fu they use baggy Bruce Lee pants, so I could probably get away with using a male figure even though the legs would be bigger. Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

If you are looking to do the 8 inch size there are the WWE deluxe aggression Series with pretty good hipthigh articulation and swivel ankles. I've only seen male figures though, no females in that line with the super articulation.

Maybe a SOTA Street Fighter Fei-Long might work if you can find one cheap enough.

Thanks for the input. As I'm still building up my fodder, I hadn't necessarily stumbled on a good ML match. There aren't that many in my stores with good articulation that aren't wearing skin-tight leggings. I've been looking at wrestling figures because that's what seems to pop up most at yard sales and thrift stores. Just this morning I found a TNA Kurt Angle from 2007 that is super poseable that I might be able to mod. I'm still open to any and all suggestions.

I would think that most Marvel Legends figures should be able to assume that stance. They sometimes skimp on the articulation on female figures, so, as you indicated, you might have to use a male's legs.
