Poseable Vitruvian Man Action Figure Lets You Play with Your Art
When Leonardo da Vinci drew his famous Vitruvian Man sometime around 1490, he was trying to create the perfectly proportioned human—not the ultimate action figure. But Japanese figurine line Figma thought that the eight-limbed man would make a great toy, and created a bendable, poseable, and utterly playable real-life model of the drawing.
According to Gizmodo, the Vitruvian Man toy is one of several artworks transformed by Figma into action figures. The toy line also offers an entire Table Museum series, including malleable models of the Venus de Milo and Michelangelo’s David.
You can purchase the design for around $60 via online retailer Good Smile Company. He comes with a display stand, a Leonardo sketch backdrop, and an aura of culture that makes your beloved Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle figures look like rubber Philistines.
