i might have an idea, but it could be expensive, depending...
Revoltech makes a series of transformers and mecha anime figures that can be taken apart so the joints are entirely seperate. the smallest figures are about 4" (about the size of the legacy grievous or a wookie figure) but some of the joints are doubled, particularly the neck post. here's
a link to one, but they're getting rather hard to find, unfortunately
if i have time, i'll post pictures of the one i have, dissasembled~
Not a bad idea I'll see what I can find and I'd love to see those pictures.

So you want an arm that can pose to make an angle of less than 90degrees (probably in the 20-40 degree range) between the proximal and distal ends under bicep control, correct?
I know you can make a notch in the elbow joint in the distal side (forearm) in the current gi joe figures (25th aniversary or later lines) and you can go beyond 90, maybe get as much as 70 degrees but not much farther. You could go farther, but it becomes a trade off on "articulation" vs appearance (big chunk of arm missing).
Have you tried this on any figures and would you suggest any figure in particular? Ideally not too heavy clothing or armour.
