I think with MB/CA and hopefully William Whitaker (he started all this years ago!) working on this if it goes ahead it should be pretty good!
That would be the one.

So my question for The7Artist7 : any news on this ?

I've not forgotten this but am busy at the moment - latest news is I'm attempting to get a time that I can discuss this with William Whitaker (He was the first to discuss the idea of Massive Black producing an artist's specific posable manikin with Jason Manley about 4 years back)

Thanks again to everyone showing support for this - I'm really hoping for a result that will be an inspiring pose manikin.
awww....! i want one!
this looks super cool, and i just wonder if you guys already have any estimates of the costs? i'll definitely by one if it's in my reach!

Also make me a massive black cock action figure! Yeah! ;p
I have one of those big spidey's, the posability is very good, but I'd totally go in for an uncoloured one, I just cant bring myself to spray him white... maybe I didn't buy him solely for posing :p
This sounds awesome, I could definitely use this, and if the price was right, i'd def. buy more than one.
This is one of the first things I want to work out as one of my personal aims with this is for it to be affordable for all levels of artist. Whether I'll achieve that aim I'm not sure... but at the least I'd like it to not take too long to save up for!

Yeah any progress? I'm really keen to see this happen. I'll help get this going any way I can The7Artist7, pm me if you need any help. And if you don't get it happening soon I might beat you to the punch

Hey B-nine & Luke M I agree this is taking way too long to get anywhere!
I have been very busy but I've not given up or gone away - unfortunately William Whitaker (who Jason asked me to contact as the main guy to work on designing this) has been hard/slow to communicate with due to him also being very busy I think.
I will make time to contact him and try again to get an idea of how best to progress
So - hang in there peoples - and thanks for the kick up the backside to keep at it!
As soon as there is any progress I will post here
and oh yeah - you all Rock for the amount of support you've shown for this!
just thought i'd chime in: another nice alternative to the big spiderman is this one. it doesn't have quite as many joints,but is highly poseable aswell,easier to carry around and a sleek black all over. highly recommend it.
Thanks Carni - would be interesting to see a slightly higher res pic without the glider thingy.
