Super Active Action Figure “MG FIGURE-RISE 1/8 Scale Son Goku” by Bandai

The 1:100 Gundam model kits "MG(Master Grade)" line was introduced in 1995 by Bandai, designed and made to higher standards than most other models, with movable inner frame system to enable extensive movement and bending of joints. The MG series previously consisted of robots and mecha only, but now they're going to launch "MG FIGURE-RISE" line human-form action figures with MG standards.

First in the brand new line will be none other than Son Goku from Dragon Ball franchise with astonishing number of joints and range of motion. He's even capable of performing 180 splits and flexing biceps (his muscle really stands out when you bend his arm just so).
