Let Me Articulate This
I hesitate to give the boys out there this link, in case they'd be distracted from their important animating!
And did I convert the price properly, only $12 USD?! update: not quite, the incredibly popular Obitsu body isn't currently sold overseas but Parabox does sell them here, and better than that, they sell several sizes of joints and parts separately, for those interested (http://www.parabox.jp/eng/60in_nb.html)
I'm still looking, I just had to have a laugh. Cheers.

This sort of fascination with articulated bodies has been going on for an ancient while, the doll below was inspired from artifacts found dated as far back as 800 BC. The fingers of some ancient dolls were delicately carved so that miniature rings could be slipped on and off them.
