A quick demo of some the recent closing-down sale purchases at Poser Addicts.
The Battlebot. It’s a standalone found under El_battlebot in Figures and Poses, and takes Hiro 3 and probably M3 poses. The eyes are the main problem, being just simple tubes, and you’re not going to get the head to do much in terms of expressiveness. Not bad for $6 though probably better for photo-real than comics, seen as looming giants across a misty battlefield. Or as a standing rusted hulk, of the sort seen in Castle in the Sky. Or delete the eye-tubes and just have him with a glowing face-plate in a cyber-punk street scene.
The Mayan outfits (‘Tlahuitzli’), which were purchased only for the two Moebius-style hats. They’re found in Poser under MX. The hat is great, with a sort of harness that goes on the back of the M3 figure. The helmet has some slight transparency problems in Poser Preview, but its rosette can be deleted via the Material Room and it can still be Preview rendered ok. Again, not bad for the equivalent of $3.50 each, and there’s nowhere else you’ll get Moebius-hats in 3D. There’s no way I would have got them at full price.
The M3 Scorpion outfit and helmet is found under Royloo. As you can see here, there’s some doubling of ink lines at the front cheek-guards, which would have to be masked with another inklines render, via nudging in Photoshop. Still, it’s a strong complete M3 outfit for $6.
