Welcome to my new artist's models

When I was looking for some lego figures, I came across one of my Lego Technic men. 

And I thought: these would be great for posing tricky illustrations. They have a wide range of movement - even the ankles have ball & socket joints (though, oddly and annoyingly, there is no articulation of any kind at the waist). Also, they are similar sort of proportions to my cartoon figures.

The trouble was, I could only find one. So I looked online, and discovered Brick Owl - a Lego marketplace which sells second hand lego pieces. 

So now I have 7 models ready to help me!

It means, for example, that I can try out a scene from different angles:

Will be really, really, helpful.
