    Hey thanks guys!

    RaoulD - Thank you ... exactly

    Blighty - not a huge amount of design/production progress ... but I have finally managed to purchase some male and female Micromen material force figures. They are 4" high and boast a impressive 30 points of articulation - I am particularly impressed with the shoulder joints on the female microman - detailed photos of this to follow later.

    Basically I've decided to do some more research into what is most usable on a day to day basis. I don't use my 18" Spiderman as ref (even though I want to) due to it's size and ratcheted joints so thought I'd try the other end of the scale - lol at the size difference!

    Within a few days I had already had a moment where a quick pose ref was useful and found it quite natural to reach out and use the micromen (I actually ended out using both micromen and the stikfa as it was a fight scene - the stands were very useful) My main crit would be too fiddly due to easily detachable parts and tiny size.

    So... too big and most people probably won't use it and too small and it is too tricky to make full use of... time to save up and find a good 6"/8" figure to test along side the others.

    Also so far I'm yet to find (even on 18" spidey with 67 points of articulation) a range of movement that answers my pose ref needs as fully as they could/should.
