I have toyed with the idea of making an assortment of tiny, articulated figures many times. Some of the reasons for this being (1) to challenge myself to work on a scale smaller than what I normally do, (2) to potentially conserve space as smaller figures take less room, (3) to streamline construction with a standardized base body/shape, and (4) smaller scale figures make large vehicles/playsets/dioramas more feasible/realistic (i.e., making a castle, van, etc. scaled to 2 inch figures takes less materials, space, time, etc. than scaling such items to 6-8 inch, or larger, figures). On 6/3/07, I finally got around to designing a prototype for such a figure. I considered making a Japanese super-deformed or LEGO-like body, but decided to go with something more realistically proportioned instead, although still blocky/geometric looking. I made the oversized hands as rings so that the figure can hold accessories securely.
