I used to get frustrated with myself that I didn't draw enough. And then I discovered, if you work with really pleasant, well-designed, convenient tools, drawing becomes not only easy, but a joy. My Stickybones is a game changer. I think we artists probably all struggle at some point with a pose, or how to correctly position a hand. Now I have my Stickybones posing for me on my drawing table. It really does feel like a drawing buddy. Oh, and the assembly video is exceptional. Made me wish I could put together another one :-)
P.S. sorry about the uninspired photo, it's the only one I took (to send to my daughter) before I started posing and drawing!
I love this figure. Super malleable and stays in place. 10/10
I've struggled with wire, clay and wood artist dolls for so long, so these are EVERYTHING I'VE DREAMED OF, and they are endlessly delightful to work with. I bought the hand pack and they are so expressive. The magnets are powerful to offer the necessary support. I am EXTREMELY HAPPY!!!
Thank you once again, as I write this, I now have five of the stickybones figures including the blue one, I can hardly wait to start some stop motion very shortly, thank you guys once again, I do like these figures a whole lot and the best in the business.
Great model for poses for drawing
Love how everything is working with dark storm and looking forward to sharing my production!
I love my new Sticky Bones posable models. My wife and I are developing an animated series together, and we have already used our two Sticky Bones to help us prepare our pitch.
There's no pose that can't be achieved. Combined with the Fly Rig the possibilities seem endless!
I recived the Sticky-Bones figure earlier than expected, in an excellent condition. I was informed of the shippement status at all times.
The figure it’s very nice and fully articulable, perfect to draw in all positions.
I would have liked to buy the yellow one but it’s too expensive for me.
My Son Love it❤️❤️
Directions were enough. Didn’t need video. Feet were extremely difficult to fit. Warmed them under faucet, and had to gingerly use needle nose pliers to get ball joints attached. There is no way to make the feet attach otherwise.
My daughter will love it as a Christmas present!

I love this figure. Perfekt for posing tasks in the field of animation and drawing.
Construction and design are well thought out. The quality is superb.
Thank you very much was this nice guy!
I purchased this figure as a drawing aid but have begun animating because it’s so intuitive and easy to pose. I have nothing negative to say about your product. Very impressive. Nice work, keep them coming. Michael
Excellent service and the quality of construction and the figures ability to take realistic poses helps the figure to excel whilst enthusing the creative operator
Very good figure I highly recommend it for its high posing capacity Very good
it's a amazing product !So many poses possible!
We are all enthusiastic about it.
My son loves it. Came after Christmas but it was ok, thanks
My grandson asks for one of these every Christmas. They don't get loose and always hold the pose he puts them in. We ordered the stand and extra hands this year and he was thrilled. He never puts it down!
Thank you so much for Sticky Bones! I am not an animator, but I love art and form . I am learning more every day and am having so much fun.
I couldn’t be more happy with my order!!!
The customer experience was great. Also the construction of the item has great quality and feels smooth and durable. Joints are powerful and its amazing how it can stand in one arm.
Fun fun!! So many poses possible!!
The Stickybones figurine is clearly high quality. The joints are firm but easily moves into any position you want it to. However, what made this buying experience great was the excellent customer service I received from the Stickybones staff. There was a minor issue with my order so I reached out to them to which they promptly responded and helped solve the issue right away. Overall both the product and the Stickybones team are excellent!
Amazing product! Finally got my hands on one after months of anticipation, I heard very good reviews about this product and decided to get myself one. Very pleased with the product, very high quality material! Extremely flexible, impressed with how easily posable this model is.
Highly recommended to any who maybe be looking for a model that is actually like a real life human skeleton!
I planned to buy it for a year, meanwhile I was just watching the videos, now I finally got my first ( ;) ) one , it is way more better than I expected, endless variation of poses etc.
And you guys put my name on the thank-you-for-your-order card it the box... that was sooo kind! :)
This is such a great thing for animators and anyone looking to do reference for human anatomy. The rig is solid and you can pull off some really great poses!
It is very helpful tool when I am drawing storyboards.
Excellent model. Love that you can pose these figures any way you want to.
Well worth the money I spent for them. The green floating rig is worth it if you’re looking to pose the figures above the ground. They also blend in with a green screen for video recording.
I think the figure is pretty sturdy and I love the articulation. I would like to see getting replacement parts for if any get damaged during use of the figure. (ie: arm and leg pieces since they seem like the first to get worn down.)
Amazing art reference figures. Got these to pose them and get different angles and gestures. They can be posed in just about every angle known to study hard to think of scenes. From romantic poses, to action poses, generic poses and beyond. The green fly arm attachment is good to get those aerial scenes you see in movies/manga and comic books/graphic novels.
Made of a high quality polymer/plastic these figures/mannequins can take poses and are flexible. Just be careful with posing the 4 fingers (3 fingers and 1 thumb) as they can fall off and get lost on the floor or carpeting.
All in all well worth every penny.
The quality is very nice, I've been looking to buy this item for some months and it finally arrived! I had some problem about the shipment, but in the end everything worked out!
I had a bit of trouble assembling Mr. Stickybones feet; but my daughter said assembly was a breeze. We both love Stickybones, my daughter will be doing some animation with sticky bones, but my sticky bones simply presides over my office.
3D animation is my job, but I'm interested in stop-motion as a hobby so I bought a stickybones puppet. Very easy to work with after getting used to and breaking it in a bit! Really fun to pose.
I received my Stickybones last week, and I am loving it so far! The feel of it is nice and sturdy, but it is so flexible—way more flexible than the little wooden models you find in craft stores! It is exactly suiting my drawing needs, and I find the neutral gray color mine came in makes each joint and appendage nice and visible. Initially, the Stickybones I purchased came without the toe caps, but the mistake was quickly resolved and the toe caps came in the mail with a handwritten note and a big smiley face. :) Thank you, Stickybones team! I also purchased the fly rig and, while I haven’t used it very much yet, its durability really stands out!
I don’t really understand what it is but my son wanted it soooo bad and absolutely loves it!!!
I love the shape and function of this figure. It really makes any pose I try look great. I haven't used it for much artwork yet, but I'm excited to have it to use for reference.
I've always want this little friend! It's really helpful to my animation reference. Thanks stickybones!
Very friendly to assemble, built great to moving it around and learning how to animate a puppet.
Great drawing aid!
Just got my second figure. Couldn't be more happy with this very useful tool for figure sketching.
I have 2 already. Stickybones helped me making leaping progress in my figure drawing.
Awesome figure! Highly articulated and a very good reference for drawing dynamic poses! I am an animator and this has become an indispensable tool for drawing. The ball joints, once broken in, holds pose tightly. The shape of the parts gives hints of anatomy really well. The magnets in the base of the feet and palms of the hands are very useful and works as a tie down when doing stop-motion animation. I got this on sale and I wished I got one sooner as it is really fun to use it for posing and for stop-motion animation. I will surely get another one once the site puts them back on sale. A bit pricey, but worth the price you pay!
This is my second stickybones. Indispensable sketching tool I use everyday.will most likely buy a third one when blue model is available.
I was hoping that the unit would be put together
Just starting to pick up a pencil (or stylus) again after forty years, so I can use all the help I can get. These figures should make it much easier to visualize and keep everything proportionate. I wish there were more accessories available, like different hands or heads or props like weapons, but for now this'll just have to do...
Loved the fact that it’s magnetic and can attached to any metal. It was very easy to put together and it has already paid for itself in how much more believable my poses are, a lot which have to do with the stand I bought for it.My only complaint is the hands only have 4 fingers but that’s taken care of with the detachable hands you can buy for it.
I didn’t expect to like it but as soon i got I fell in love with it. It really is one of the best things I bought this year
Really love this mannequin! My use is for drawing and, despite the proportions not being 100% accurate, I'm simply in love. I highly like the poseable hands and it's quite easy to just add a pinkie for my drawings. The mannequin is sturdy, highly poseable and the magnets and base are a welcomed addition.
It arrived from the US to the Netherlands in less then a week. The wuality is superb and im absolutely in love with it.
Very fast delivery to my place in New Zealand. Parts all clip together well and drawing my first poses. Works a charm. Well recommended . Thanks again
Love it…wanted it for long time but delayed because of focus on other lines. What was I thinking??? Amazing in hand and just oozing ideas as soon as I put it together
I love it so much! Easily posable, but also robust. I'll definitely get the fly rig!
Really fantastic mobility can't wait to expand my collection!!
As an animator, I am blown away by the usefulness of this figure! I now use it a lot for posing reference and will be my main character once I get into stop-motion animation. The articulation is almost perfect and the hint of anatomy is spot on! The joints really have just the right stiffness to hold each pose. The magnets of the palms and feet works super well too, especially if you use a flat metal sheet as your stage. There are bits of roughness in the parts mainly due to the casting, but these can easily be smoothed out if it is a bother, but I don't mind it much. My only regret is that I did not buy one much sooner, but I will surely wait for the next sale to get another one. Great product, worth the price and the wait; thank you Stickybones!
Excellent posing figures for creative purposes, highly recommended!
This is even fun as a toy, I've spent more time than I'd like to admit just playing with it for non-creative reasons. It's so dynamic and clearly heavy duty resin, the magnets are super nice as well, I was impressed that there are individual magnets in the toes and heels. I was going to buy one at the start of the pandemic, but they were not available for a while, understandably. I'm legit so excited to use this for drawing and I might attempt some stop motion if my OCD tendencies will allow it lol. 10/10 I'm definitely going to buy the arm stand too
I love it so much that I ordered a other one
That was perfect
Clearly a high quality product. Love the robustness and stability – there's a new sheriff in town :-)
I bought this as a gift for my younger brother who loves stop motion, animations and comic illustrations. He thinks it is brilliant! Very well made, great motion and very fast good service.
The Stickybones figure is awesome - easy to pose and create a huge variation in movement, especially when trying to capture that perfect dynamic pose before painting or sculpting.
I'm loving it.
Really enjoyed putting it together and playing with it! It came sooner than I expected!
It's a great tool for quick stop motion projects or to do test scenes. Not having to always make my own puppet is a huge time saver. I used a 3D printer to make an armature myself.. but the results of that were less then stellar. Thank you for designing something that works.
I'm having a blast!
Haven’t gotten much of a chance to use it yet but so far I’m loving it.
Best decision/purchase I've ever made. Works great for artists wanted a figure to help draw, not just animators. You'll love it. Stop thinking about it and just buy it, you won't regret it!
One of the few products that looks amazing online, then exceeds expectations in real life. Stunningly poseable and fun to use. I use mine primarily for drawing reference. I had a minor issue with one of the pieces and Stickybones was extremely fast in getting me a replacement piece with zero hassle. Will almost certainly be ordering a second figure soon for two figure posing.
Figurine très modulable, on peut faire beaucoup de position, ce qui m'aide beaucoup dans mes projets de peinture !!
Je recommande !!
I have just received my figures but am excited to share them with my students!
The sticky bones figure is the coolest figure out there from handstands to one footed kicks it does it all. The only problems that I have is that I received an extra knuckle instead of a finger tip.
Other then that it’s one cool toy.
Works amazing. I recommend it often
I’m not an animator; I am using my stickybones for as a learning too for figure drawing practice. Sometimes when I’m working from photo reference I have trouble seeing which way things are pointing in space, or just can’t wrap my head around the various volumes of the figure. So I make my best guess, and then put my stickybones in the same pose too check my thinking. It works great! The quality seems really good, it's easy to lose, and it stays in position without sagging, etc. Love it!
I love my Stickybones purchase, I would like to buy the blue one and a dark grey one.
Great poses, great little dude
Wicked piece of kit for your art tool box... Gives me tons of inspiration 10/10
When it comes to animation in my Video Production class the sticky bones figures really can bring students' imagination to life!
I can tell this will help me out with drawing poses at whatever angle I’d like, so that’s kinda sick
I love this product, easy and flexible to manipulate, enough flex points to create good poses, perfect for my animations. Many thanks. And the green stand is perfect, I can easily remove it from my shots then focus on the mannequin.
I'm a comic book artist, and use this for reference when drawing poses. It's the best drawing mannequin I've ever seen.
Quality seems very good — I especially love the design of the shapes, and the shoulder articulation! Can’t wait to give animating him a try...
Awesome! Best model I've found for drawing poses by far!
This is perfect
Love this figure. So fun to play with an animate. The possibilities are endless! Can't want to get another one.
Currently using my figure to help as a loose reference for figure drawing. I really enjoy that these joints have so much range of movement, as the poses can become quite expressive. The material is nice and sturdy too. One shoulder joint on mine is a bit stiff and slightly more difficult to move than all the others but I'm not bothered much by it. overall the design and quality of material makes this investment quite worth it! Thank you Stickybones.
Great product, amazing for storyboarding.
Best Figure I have ever bought. Worth every penny (UK). Love posing it. As a fellow animator you can tell it was created with posability in mind. I am amazed how well it holds poses.
Magnetic feet works really well on my desk stand. Holds stronger than the stand it comes with. Awesome!
This my absolute favorite figure (I have a few now and definitely plan to get more). They are the most articulate, expressive figures I’ve ever had - and I have a huge collection of all types of action figures. If I would do anything to improve them it would be to give them articulated toes as well! A 4” version would be cool too. Overall, articulation is unmatched, sculpt is amazing, the magnets are fantastic and come in handy on a regular basis. Good, durable material and fabrication - I’m not worried about it breaking. Easy assembly. Any physical movement that I can think of, I can accomplish with this figure. I also really appreciate you re-posting my pictures on Instagram (action_wip)!!! I’m obviously a huge fan
Is it possible to make a sticky bone smaller ??
I'm drawing some comics. I use reference, but it can be exhausting to find the right pose. I also need to visualize the figure from all these different angles that are unusual. I use stickybones to try things out and sketch them for my comics. I find it very handy.
This was for my little boy he absolutely loves it
Aloha. I haven't had a chance to use my Stickybones for any animations just yet. I'm getting used to handling the tiny parts. I keep popping off the limbs but, I'm sure with time this will improve. I put it together by watching one of your YOUTUBE videos, so thanks for providing that. In the photo I have it giving the "peace sign" on the right hand and the Hawaiian "shaka" on the left hand. Aloha, and take care.
Love it, perfect for illustration/ animation references.
