I’m looking forward to seeing what he looks like!

I use the D3 morph for genesis as an ingredient in many of my male characters, and if he’s even more realistic (kind of how A5 has been.. i know D3 was more realistic to start than Aiko), I think that would be a great addition.

Funny you say that, because up until recently I was betting that D5 was going to be A5’s counterpart as a Game-style male, but then where would that leave S5? That and from what I’m seeing in the ReadMe’s (which ever ones are still around), D5’s going to be marketed with a Punk/Rock theme. Appropriate for an everyday “little brother” figure, don’t you think? smile

But, what I’m also wondering about, as I KNOW many others are, ESPECIALLY those who don’t have anything M5 Pro Bundle-related, is whether or not David will have “toast” like he did in Gen 3. Stephanie got the Female Genitalia, so the pattern really should be consistent.

Either way, I’m totally stoked that we’re finally get an official REAL WORLD male figure for Genesis that I have been begging for since Stephanie 5’s release, leanness and all! cheese

Yay for David 5.  smile

Back in Gen 3, he was my go-to male figure, even if I did have to scale him up a little to pair him with V3 (who just had a better wardrobe and selection of characters than Sp3)

The Punk/Rock theme is certainly an interesting one.  Maybe I’ll get a good 80’s flashback with something New Romantic-ish.  (I realize that some of the people here weren’t even in school when the New Romantic movement hit…)

Well, if so, maybe that rocker theme suggests D5 won’t be counterparting any one lady, and will be getting with all of them… S5 A5 V5 and beyond….

David 3 really had the more interesting face morphs for a variety of character possibilities.

I only have the default Genesis and Victoria 5 to play with and haven’t felt the need to purchase any other characters. I don’t even like V5’s body…(And why do I need 20 breast shapes?)

I’ve considered the Young Teens so I can have “younger” characters and softer jawlines, but you can achieve it with Genesis with a bit of morphing. So I don’t understand all of these new characters. Am I missing something? What’s the point of Aiko 5 and David 5 when the default Genesis can basically mimic these shapes? Sure, I look at them them and nod appreciatively when all the pretty promos are released but I never feel compelled to buy them. (Although I probably would if I was rich, just because…)

I’ll happily eat my words if David is released and he’s an awe-inspiring figure.

Because even with Genesis, each DAZ Iconic Couple caters to a unique genre that one couldn’t easily achieve without some heavy duty mesh alteration in an alternate program. There’s no way I would be able to achieve Hiro 5’s significantly stylized head and Anime/Manga thin body or Freak 5’s Sci-Fi steroid-induced greatness with any overly-idealized Michael figure. In fact, there were many complaints and much agreement that any attempted self-made youths with Genesis weren’t convincing enough before Thorne’s graceful gift of the Young Teens Julie & Justin!

Even now because of M5’s god-like build, any attempt to create a everyday proportionate male requires a bit of significant slimming and tweaking, where there should be a base shape for this already. This is the purpose that David serves, a complimentary alternative to the stockiness and having a world where your men look like they all have gym memberships. smile

Aiko 3, David 3, and Michael 4 were the only figures I used extensively. I’ve gotten them all, though not all right away. Even the Vicky’s were rarely touched. Aiko 4 a bit, not too much. Girl never. Stephanie 3 once.

Now Genesis. Genesis has changed everything. Every figure is useful in some way. Every one. Even the ones I don’t care for much like Michael 5. I like his clothes though smile

Which is why I considered the Young Teens, for that reason. I have issues with the Basic Child too. Even with tweaking, there’s still something creepy and off about it.

I totally agree on the Anime, Freak and Toon fronts. They are highly stylized characters. For an Everyday Joe type character though, I don’t see why the default Genesis characters, with all their pot-belly/fat/ordinary morphs, isn’t enough to fill the slot.

I’m still keen to see the new David though. I like seeing new stuff…

I use Young Teens in every fairy render I make now. From all Genesis subfigures, Stephanie, BaseMale and YT are most useful for me.

If they go with the punk/rock theme, he’d be in good company: Bowie, Grohl, Navarro, Roth, etc… smile

Having just gotten Stephanie 5 with the pro bundle, I’m quite pleased with it, more so than I was with Victoria 5.  Now with Michael 5, there’s already a good variety of characters available like Ashley, Santo, and Tyrese, to name a few, and some of these characters have the slimmer and smaller bodies available in their morph sets.  But I must admit I’m very curious to see what a David 5 pro bundle would look like and where he might fit between YT Justin and Michael 5.
