I just found these really cool stop motion figures from a company called Stikfas. They're only 3 inches tall but the arms are a good length for my 1/12th scale models and I plan to use the joints and make the rest of the figure by just cutting and stretching the other body parts. I brought two different kinds of models, the red one has extras joints at the knees and elbows but actually I think the blue one will work in a more natural way. I'm really please with these little £2.99 figures, I had been looking at professionally make metal armatures which could be cut down to make 5 inch characters but I think the balls for the joints were about 6mm and that would have looked awful and it would have cost about £100 to find out.
