I am a stopmotion animator and I need some human figurines. What are some good looking simple human figures? Pic related I found at a store near my house

Y'know that Edward would go towards a great Cassidy custom.

I assume you need them to be highly articulated?

Do you need them to look realistic or just human shaped? Does the size of the figure matter? Do you have a big budget?
>>
>>5375359
They need to be highly articulated, and look human like. My budget is like 40 euros per figurine max

you must be kind of dumb. Good stop motion is built from the ground up

Copypasta troll.

I am not lol.

I usually work with real actors but after seeing the new Kaufman movie I decided to give stopmotion a go
>>
>>5375340
Watch Robot Chicken
I think they use 12" figures. But can be done with smaller, see: counter656

>>5375364
Good luck finding highly articulated toys at that price.

I already worked with stop motion before but it was years ago. I am sorry, I am just tired and bad at articulating myself
>>
>>5375364
They dont have knee articulation.
or leg articulation for that matter

NECA's retro format figures might fit what you're looking for. Around $20 each with decent articulation. They are mostly horror movie related, but there are a few others like these Home Alone figures.

Robot Chicken uses Mego figures for their people, which are 1/8

Buffy figures are pretty good for that I hear

They can't all be Jack Nicholson.

Well, apologies for the late response.

I guess we're ruling out dolls due to price.

Human looking figures for stopmotion... I guess Figma can work. I dunno about Neca stuff. I don't feel they're that articulated. And if you're a Euro user, US toys might be as expensive as Weaboo toys no?

If they're simply human shaped, consider Bandai's Twist Action Form Kamen Riders. They're karate bugmen with wire skellies underneath. They should be pretty cheap too because they shelfwarmed due to collectors not wanting to get toys that could snap over time. But for the purpose of your projects, they could serve you fairly well.

I found an action figure of leather face at my locals. Is it any good?
