    Where to buy mechanical fiqures? (robot/mecha/suit...)

    I haven't really found out for some reason where to buy these. I'm wanting to buy mechanical fiqures for drawing here at SF pod (can be japanese mecha, more western conceptart robots, actually almost anything mechanical) anyone would have any links to shops or anywhere?

    It has to be allready assembled (not kit that you have assemble yourself, or easy one to assemble...)

    Goal is to draw mechanical shapes in perspective.

    Any help is appreciated

    Why can't it be like one you have to assemble??
    Time issue or something
    My thoughts would be if it was like a model it would help a lot to have to assemble ur self then draw it.

    edit: oops double post.

    Alternatively you can visit http://dalong.net/ for pictures of model kits in their assembled but unpainted state, just click on any of the MG/PG/HG/whatever grade is in the box on top of the page.

    As for buying, http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/ might be a good place to check out. I recommend getting a Revoltech or Robot Damashii figure.

    If you just want to draw mechanical shapes I would suggest raiding your nearest shed and observing anything manmade as cheaper alternative. I was surprised how many interesting shapes I found just from looking in a cutlery draw. Ive turned garlic crushers into helmets and corkscrews into strange contraptions.
