    Anatomical Casts for references?

    I'm terribly sorry if this isn't the right forum. I've been browsing ca forever but I'm still noobish. ;-;

    So, I've been getting into Bargue drawings and whatnot lately, and am looking into purchasing some casts to draw from. Does anyone know any good places to buy casts from?

    I found face parts that look like Bargue's at Dick Blick (link), and they seem pretty great expect for the whole $30 a piece thing.

    And just now, I found some at PFC Studio, where you can buy a couple versions of a face part (ie caucasian eye, asian eye, old eye) rolled up into one for $20 (holiday sale~!), or some other good-looking pieces for more (that girl's head is tempting me).

    Does anyone have feedback on those two sources or more sources to offer?

    I have never bought any casts (too damn expensive) but looking at these two options definitely go for the PFC studio ones over the Dick Blick--they are much more accurate and just better overall in terms of forms.

    But really, a quick search finds much more...DO SOME RESEARCH (note that you will have to read through these, I haven't myself so don't know how helpful each one will be, but I am sure there is plenty in there):
