Check out S.H. Figuarts Gray Man DX Set which is designed for artists in mind: what a figure it is!

I think it's very cool when an action figure can do almost everything a human can because when that happens, realistic poses can be achieved. Also, if one is an aspiring artist or someone who is just interested in the human form and its anatomy, super pose-able action figures will give one the inspiration to observe a figure from different angles and get the best perspective when it comes to drawing or photographing the subject matter.

That is one of the reasons why I got into this 1:6 scale collectible hobby. Besides the ultra detailed fabric clothing / outfits designed and made in 1:6 scale, including the weapons, gear and accessories, when put on a 12-inch figure with good articulation, you can really appreciate the art that went into producing the figure, with realism and trueness to form being the end result. What with Hot Toys leading the industry in this area, the 1:6 scale modeling hobby has certainly grown by leaps and bounds.

Smaller size action figures seem to lag behind in this particular area of articulation but it seems TAMASHII NATIONS wants to put an end to that. They have released pictures of their S.H. Figuarts Gray Man DX Set which looks to revolutionize the market.

TAMASHII NATIONS introduces a new breakout line from S.H. Figuarts of highly realistic, articulated figures created with the artist in mind. Over recent years, the numbers of digital artists has increased rapidly and with TAMASHII NATIONS’ new humanoid figure collection; you can easily create poses to create the most dynamic of drawings! Over 30 articulated joints make it even easier to recreate a desired pose or action. The DX set includes everything you need to create a masterpiece: interchangeable hands (x17), mini book, PC, tablet, model gun, sword, pen, smartphone, cell phone, and special display base.
