I have not seen anything yet, but is CC able to lower the poly count of it's characters for a crowd scene?  If not, that might be a nice addition. 
However a thought along these lines as I have 3DXchange pipeline, if I exported a finished CC character out to Blender, lowered the poly count and imported back in, is this possible and could this be a possible solution to group characters?

Thank you!

Polycount within iClone is fixed and cannot be changed. You could export the character and reduce the polys, but it would no longer be a standard iClone character. You would have to re-rig it probably and then import back as a non-standard character.

For crowds, where details are often less important, you could use low-poly characters, which are available in the MarketPlace.

EDIT: I try to get rid of the light-blue background, but I can't...Unsure

This is a fantastic idea. Have two or three different poly-count versions. A high-poly-count would be great for detailed closeups and for film quality rather than game-engine quality.

Do CC characters have a variable level of detail (LOD), like a Speed Tree props?  That would be really handy.

That's unfortunate, though I respect the content creators here as I'm a 3D modeler myself trying to avoid the little bits that add up is helpful for someone on a fixed income.
