History and release dates of all Poser / Daz figures?

I'm doing an article which frequently references figures by their age (the point being, there's still a lot of life left in old figures, even the old P4 "Dork"). But I'm having a lot of trouble finding release years for all the various figures and major characters. Is anyone aware of a single site that lists them all, PARTICUARLY MICHAEL. There is a Wikipedia page that lists Victoria, which is all nice and good, but if there's one about Michael, I can't find it.

All help greatly appreciated!

    If I remember correctly... "Pozette" and "Dork" where the characters that came with Poser 4.  If you find the Poser 4 release date, they are one in the same.

    Are you looking for just the base figures, or the primary characters released for them?

    btw/ just an FYI.  The Genesis, Genesis 2, Genesis 3 and Genesis 8 Female release dayes are the same as their corresponding Victoria (5, 6, 7, and 8)

    If I dig through my old emails I can get you release dates.  The last time I deleted Daz3d emails was back in 2012...

    The Documentation Center has the Released Date: field for products with the release date.

    This one is Victoria 7:
    http://docs.daz3d.com/doku.php/public/read_me/index/21750/start

    If you know the SKU of the product just switch it for the one above (21750) and you will land on their Doku page. Some products don't have a Doku page.

    THANKS! I WAS ABLE TO FIND THOSE AT WIKIPEDIA.

    Are you looking for just the base figures, or the primary characters released for them?

    I REALLY JUST WANT THE "BIG" FIGURES LIKE MICHAEL, VICTORIA, DAVID, FREAK, THE KIDS, HIRO, AIKO, STEPHANIE. I MIGHT ADD SOME OF THE MINOR CHARACTERS LIKE LEE, RYDER, JESSIE, ETC.

    btw/ just an FYI.  The Genesis, Genesis 2, Genesis 3 and Genesis 8 Female release dayes are the same as their corresponding Victoria (5, 6, 7, and 8)

    THANKS!

    AGAIN, THANK YOU!

    Thanks! I thought it might be documented somewhere on the site, but wasn't sure where. 

    Hmmm. I found this, but no corresponding data for Victoria 1:

    • 2000-01-01 Millennium Man Michael 1 

    Fortunately, Victoria has a Wikipedia page, so I can look up release years (which is really the main info I want).

    Thanks again, and if anyone finds a single resource listing everything, that would be great.
