    You might have some luck at So far I only found one human skeleton, but I don't think it's exactly what you are looking for. :D It's about 90 years old, 5.6 feet tall, and it costs around $500.

    Try Moore's Gross Anatomy. They have good pictures of bones with muscle origins and insertions.

    If you want a skeleton, many medical schools allow you to sign one out (sometimes for a small fee). Be careful, though. In some states I've heard it is illegal to have one in your home since a skeleton is technically considered human remains.

    I guess you're better off getting a plastic one, then.
