I to have taken your path, but found a few more problems that you will incur on your travels with this. first, you need to export it to a 3ds object, allowing it to export groups for each body part, this is important for the problems you will face now. once you get it into 3d max, you will see that your figure has an extremely large poly count. i had a generic man with over 30k polys, much overkill if you ask me. so then i had to use the optimize modifier within 3d max and tweak each body part to a reasonable level. the reason for exporting as groups, is you can tweak his feet, or his torso, or whatever you want, and keep high LOD on some parts, such as the face if you need.

well i hope this helps
