Until recently an exclusive feature of $3000+ dolls, hand bones with skeleton (also known as ‘articulated fingers’) are increasingly becoming available on medium-priced TPE dolls. As of June 2021 WM Dolls, YL Dolls and Irontech are already offering this feature on their 140cm+ dolls. Articulated fingers is normally an affordable fee-paying feature, however keep an eye out for specials and promotions, you may be able to get them for free!
This ‘skeleton fingers’ compared to traditional ‘wire fingers’ will bring more durability and posing capability. Definitely a must-have feature for doll photography lovers.
Update June 2022: now available on Elsa Babe dolls from 148cm. See below a presentation video:
Update March 2023: WM Dolls hand bones 3.0 (with ball-jointed skeleton) released. Currently available on WM Dolls 150cm and above. See below for the difference between ‘WM Dolls ‘regular’ hand bones (also known as 2.0) and the upgraded 3.0 ball-jointed hand bones:
