Default Purchasing rigged models?

Google searches for 3D models isn't helping me a ton. There's a lot of crap out there.

Do you guys have any links to sites that sell high quality, rigged models?

Thanks in advance!

not sure where you can buy them, but off the top of my head you could head over to as they have lots of free rigged models.

My animation book has several fully rigged, textured models included, if you're not looking for anything specific.

Mike! Haven't seen you round here for a while, or am i just not paying attention?

If you go into the visor window of MAYA there is an example of a skeleton which can be used to practice rigging. It isn't that hard to do once you get into it.

If you want i can upload a model i extracted from a game?
so long as you are using it for practice and not for sale or money i think it is legal (don't quote me on that though) it is fully textured and i fixed up rigging problems myself.

also i think there are some rigged models on this site:
