Does anyone know where these models can be found? I've looked everywhere and no one seems to know! They look like they'd be great models to draw from...

Thanks Bishop! :happy: I was really hoping to find the Takara ones, but the link is pretty good, and they even ship to Canada! :thumbs: I'd found something similar to your link but they wouldn't ship up here.

Pretty awesome too! You're a searching machine, Bishop... :har: (maybe you'll come across a Takara place eventually... even toy forums are looking for them)

There was this super detailed SPIDER-MAN a few years back I got. You can move the fingers and almost all the other joints into all kinds of positions. Great tool and cost far less if you can find one.

Kind of like this one but mine was better and I didn't give $50 for mine.

Here is the exact one but again, I didn't pay $50.00 for mine so if anyone wants one I will sale mine for $500. ;)

Have you ever considered just using Poser?

I've seen poser, but it looks like a bit of a learning curve, a time investment I just can't do right now, too busy (and that's a good thing!). Mannakins and models are super-easy... :p

Learning to pose a figure in Poser has a very small learning curve. The complexity comes in more if you are working with hair and cloth mechanics, customizing body types/morphs, etc. The posing portion just takes a little bit of patience. That's been my experience anyway.

You are familiar with poser? Cool...! So it's not so hard? Well, maybe I'll try an older version! Mind you, using an actual model is good too, the real-life thing and all... But that is very helpful to have your experience with it. :happy:

I find that online tutorials are invaluable with some of the tools nowadays. This is a tutorial on the basics of Poser Pro. Some features won't be found on the older or non-Pro versions, but the basics are the same. The interface hasn't had any substantial changes for years, and the tools work pretty much the same.

The video is about an hour, but it does a decent job of getting you comfortable with how the basics work. I haven't watched the whole thing, but I didn't see where it mentions the canned poses that come with the product. The software has a bunch of canned poses that you can use to get the core of a pose, and then make slight modifications to make it your own.

you're way better off buying the sh figuarts blank figure at big bad toy store than from a third party seller on amazon.

there's a few somewhat decent pose apps for mobile devices as well...I had a bit of success with 3D Pose Tool, gonna try out the Mannequin one today.

Thanks for that info Danny, never thought these things existed, now I can stop twisting my body looking like an idiot playing imaginary Twister.

Ingrid: Thanks for the thread.

Juan... Hey, hope people find some great models instead of getting a hernia in the mirror...

Think I'll get that model that someone linked, and then I downloaded Daz. It's free and it come with a doohickey model to play with.

Those darn mirrors are annoying forget the hernia. Taking a picture while striking a pose in the mirror is annoying I need an extra pair of arms and legs to get a perfect shot.

I tried Daz but then I felt like I needed a course in 3D modeling.

So Daz3d just basically lets you set poses on preconstructed 3d models right? That sounds helpful!

All I know is that is comes with models you can sorta push and pull in any position. Pretty cool actually.

Just saw that these will be coming out later in the fall, in case anyone is interested:
http://special.goodsmile.info/archetype_next/

They're already up for preorder here:
http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/menu.aspx?menu=1954

They retail in Japan for about $25 each so you can see the import fee isn't too bad...and you shouldn't have to spend more than $45 on these at the most.
