Anybody have any good ideas for sources for ball/socket joints and hinge joints for 1/6th projects?

Reason I ask: I picked up several battle droids and super battle droids and their lack of articulation is driving me mad. (Too bad, because I think Hasbro could've done more with these, but what do I ask for what was $20 retail and designed for a 7 year old, eh?)

There are also other projects I have where I'd like to improve the articulation and having a resource for ball/socket joints and hinge joints would be useful.

Any ideas?

I thought Bionicles might have some parts to offer, but wasn't sure which kits were the best.

And Bionicles make me want to upgrade my general Grievous, while I'm at it.

I use nylon bearings for some projects, but they aren't good for exposed joints, only good if they're hidden.



I'm still figuring them out, so far I've only used to give feet more articulation.
And here is a double Bionicle ball joint.
