Uhm.. Blender? It's free and has many features built in it. Though it can be troublesome for having too many. And like scirra, its community is quite helpful too. And last, it's free.

ow man blender is not by any means for beginners. Id say Poser and DazStudio. Can't compare with Blender, but they are dead simple and let you animate (somehow). And at least Daz is free -- not sure about Poser. Also, there's TONS AND TONS of free 3D content for them (check sharecg and renderosity -- just for starters!). If you rather want to sculpt your own stuff I'd hit Sculptris (the lite, free version of ZBrush).

@remy-jay go for Daz then. They're pretty much the same. Or so i understand, I only used Daz meself. Anyway the 3D stuff is usually compatible between em...

I don't check the forums much anymore, but I will receive an email for PMs.
