Gym Rat Action Figure

This is my first attempt at creating a posable action figure. I sculpted all of the pieces in Sculptris, then uploaded them to Shapeways for 3D printing. It worked fairly well except the joints were a little too small. I forgot to factor in that Shapeways cleans the parts which removes a thin layer of material. I was able to build them back up using Superglue and paint. The legs do not move like I had anticipated, so in the future will need to look at a different cut/joint place. Overall I was very pleased with the results.
