Terai Yuki 2, commonly called TY2, is one of those figures that deserved a better fate. I am told it was lost in 'Licensing Hell.' Over the years I picked up a library of items but cannot find my base copy as I migrate to Poser 11.3

Does anyone know where I can get the copy of the Base figure TY2? I'm willing to buy it, but it does not seem to be available anywhere.

Please don't let my Poser Game Developer Die.  ...Please?

Links to other stores are not allowed. The place you can find the product is at EFrontier.

Sorry - I forgot about that policy.

More freebies for TY2:

If there is a way to buy TY2 at efrontier it is not obvious. The only site I can find is entirely written in Japanese. And before you say it, I tried unsccessfully to look at it in Google Translate.

They do, however, appear to be a reseller of Poser11.

I thought TY2 was a Japanese advertising product added to Poser and then had clothing etc here at Rendo, so that's why I asked here first, because it was a part of Content Paradise that Rendo acquired.

Does seem a little tricky. Especially since you'd have to register there and the translations aren't 100% by a long shot.

I remember buying her at content paradise. She was very expensive, 30 bucks If I recall correctly. There's a lot of content for the figure if you dig around enough. I remember I got a bit of stuff from RDNA too. NearMe is also at efrontier now...

It is for sale at eFrontier. It says it's $39 for the Terai Yuki figure pack, $35 without tax. (As a nonresident of Japan, you may be exempt from the tax?)

E-Frontier didn't turn everything over when they sold Poser. NearMe is another figure they kept the rights to, and are selling in Japan.

Your best bet might be to check your hard drives/backups for the base figure. I have files called TeraiYuki.zip, TeraiYuki-HR.zip, and TeraiYuki 2.zip. The first is dated August 2005, the latter two October 2005. Maybe that will help your search?

EFrontier never passed on the rights to Terai Yuki after Poser was sold to Smith Micro, and therefore the rights were not passed on to Renderosity either. That's probably the main reason she never grew past TY version 2.

EFrontier seems to be the only place you can get her now.

  Deecey    ( ) ( posted at 2:11AM Mon, 07 September 2020  · @4398824

Yeah Terai Yuki 2 dates back to 2005. SM took Poser over some time between Dec 2006 (Poser 7 release by EFrontier) and May 2008 (Poser Pro release by SM)

Announced November 19th 2007, finalized on the 30th...

Smith Micro Software Inc. (NASDAQ: SMSI), today announced that it will add the popular e frontier 3D graphic and animation solutions Poser®, Anime Studio™ and Manga Studio™ to its growing lineup of consumer-focused products. Smith Micro will acquire ownership and distribution rights of certain e frontier assets for $6 million in cash and anticipates the deal to be immediately accretive upon close of transaction, expected in the fourth quarter of 2007.

YMMV but, IIRC, TY's original franchise agreement 'locked in' that now-daft price for TY2. Intent to restrict dilution of the intellectual property ??

I've a folder full of freebies, never bought the absurdly over-priced base...

A shame, as TY2 is so very cute and, yes, probably inspired a generation of MMD figures...

I bought Terai Yuki for $19.99. It was $39.99 at Content Paradise, but they had an introductory 50% off coupon.

It's Limbo Rocky, a chip off the block of your favorite, Limbo, Limbo Rock!

I honestly never got what people saw in Terai Yuki. She looks terrible to me.

I think she's cute, but honestly, I think the reason I bought her was because of the general hype, and the coupon. I was not into toonish renders at all back then.

I'm one of those people who can't resist a sale. Just in case. I might need it later! :2049:

I find her difficult to pose. She is an older figure, but as I recall, I found her difficult to pose even by 2005 standards.

It's nearly $40 (after exchange rate) at E-frontier (around 4200 yen or so). You can find a massive listing of freebies for TY2 here: https://poserdazfreebies.miraheze.org/wiki/Terai_Yuki_2

@EClark1894 - Actually it wasn't half bad in certain render engines (P5/3DL or newer) and under certain lighting styles. The "Babyface" face morph helped out a lot in this regard if you found the default face too un-anime-like or too blocky.

I don't use it much, mostly due to a lack of stuff, but ocne in a great while I'll unlimber it for giggles. Subdivision and geometry smoothing (err, DS stuff) helps big-time, much like it does for Posette, and even the creaky old Michael 2-based character I still keep around as an avatar.

That's okay. I like both ... and a lot of other figures too.

Like I like all of my rendering software.

Kerya, where did you get that beautiful dress?

It is free and available for different figures:


I used the Steampunk textures.

Oh wow, thank you so much, It is exactly the type of dress i need for a picture.
