Obitsu figures are made in Japan and have incredible flexibility. They are difficult to find in the United States, and when you do find them, they are usually available as the body only- then you have to locate a source for the heads! We were fortunate to find a source for the complete figures- bodies and heads in one package. The figures are proportioned to be used as anime/manga models (for drawing and/or for customizing into your own manga doll creation). They have incredibly strong magnets on the base of their feet, and a black metal disc stand is included. The magnets allow the figures to stand and pose without having to use a separate doll stand or wires.
