Tarzan 8.1????

How about a new 8.1 figure based on the character Tarzan (maybe make it a contest for designers, who design figures for Genesis 8.1)? I was downloading Gianni 6 from my Daz3d account, when I thought how great a Tarzan he'd make, but I wouldn't cry if a Tarzan 8.1 resembled the movie "Tarzan" character either. ; )

    There's a character based on Alexander Skarsgard if that's what you're looking for, but he's for M4.

    I'd love a Tarzan bundle, but there are so many ways it could go wrong epending on the tastes of who is doing it and what influences they are using.

    Too early, what came to mind for me was Brendan Fraser in George of the Jungle, so I was about to agree. However, I think one of the Toon Dwayne 8 add-on characters looks like the Disney cartoon version of Tarzan. All he needed was the loin cloth and the long hair, and there was a promo pic of him like that. Here it is: https://www.daz3d.com/brandon-for-toon-dwayne-8

    Far as I understand it, the Edgar Rice Boroughs estate still has veto-power over products named after their characters, so pretty good chance that any Tarzan themed character set would likely have to be obfuscated slightly.  Jungle Ape Man 8.1, maybe? :D

    While we're on the subject, I've previously mentioned that I'd love to have a build-a-jungle-treehouse-dwelling construction pack, something in the vein of the ones in the old 1930s Tarzan movies, or for that matter like the one in the "Lord Greystoke and the Legend of Tarzan" movie from the 80s, or maybe something in the vein of the (Disney) Swiss Family Robinson treehouse-complex.  Something with LARGE platforms to medium-sized platforms, connected by catwalks, all of which look like they were made from parts scavanged from the jungle and/or from sailing-ship-wreckage and stuff.  I've found lots of treehouses for Daz and Poser, but they're all either too small for what I want, or don't look the period or style I'm going for.

    Interesting... I was already suggesting a Jayne character that could go with the "Jungle Man" based off of some real wildlife Biologist (Jayne Goodall and Dr Rebecca Cliffe.

    But, hey, it is 2021... So maybe it should be a female character that has been raised by the Jungle Fauna and discovered by a hapless male who she has to rescue constantly.

    In thinking about this more, I would rather see a comprehensive environment and clothing bundle more than a figure. Jungle scenerios/vignettes, vines, treehouse, poses for Tarzen and the various animals in the store, new hair from Linday, etc.

    It's fairly easy to create figures these days with all the resources we have and I am sure my take on the ape man would be different than others. This is my take on how I want Tarzen to look

    I'm not even that into Tarzan as a character but I had a little bit of free time and this thread inspired me! laugh

    How about a animal-skin one-shoulder singlet, which was also used as an old-time 'strongman' costume?  Like in the film Tarzan and the Golden Lion (1927). 

  • Hmmmmm.... picture not working.

    Haven't you ever seen Heath get rescued seemingly every episode on The Big Valley? Audra was a distant second.laugh
