Hey! I’m considering buying a body-kun, but before I go for it, I’d like to know how well he can take to the poses I illustrated below (highlighted areas being of particular interest to me; to what degree can body-kun slouch? to what degree can his arms and legs bend?)
If you can help me with this, I would immensely appreciate it haha. And please feel free to let me know if this is the wrong place to ask.
PS. great blog, awesome cause :)
Admin: Alas, you’ve found most of body-kun’s weaknesses. Here’s a rundown.
This is the full range of motion body-kun can achieve in regards to a “curling over the knees” pose. It’s what I consider the greatest limitation.
This is as close as he can get to achieving the forearms together pose in your second sketch. (Sorry bout the gun; he was… in the middle of something.)
I think he does the forward slouch pretty well, but again, this is about as far as he can bend at the waist and ribs.
He can raise his arm as in your fourth sketch, but as with most dolls, it’s from shoulder rotation. The deltoids end up in an unnatural position, but the good news is that you can rotate his arm at the biceps/triceps a full 360 degrees so the elbow faces forward, to the side, etc. As long as you have the anatomical knowledge to fill in the armpit/deltoids, this one is acceptable in my opinion.
