Only the .ma and .mb file come rigged and ready for animation but I have also supplied .obj and .fbx files if you wish to rig the model in your own 3d package.
A readme file is included to explain how to use the rig, but it is pretty straightforward.
Nurbs curves control the joints in the skeleton via constraints and set driven keys. Very easy to animate with the various added attributes on the mainTransform curve.
