Character Reel from shaded to wireframe

I have a character that I want to showcase, it's in a pedestal rotating 360. What I want to do is have it transition from shaded mode to wireframe mode like what I've seen in some of the 3d modeling reels in youtube. How can I do something like that? please help

I like to use the UV snapshot and just map it on for diffuse for my wireframe, so you aren't looking at the back of the scoop or the back of the model through the wires. Just seems too confusing to my eyes. Need a high res map and a photoshop filter or two to make it really pop, but looks good imho.

Otherwise max materials have a "wire" checkbox at the very top. Don't advise it personally but to each his/her own.

I've had pretty good luck with a composite material.
Base layer is whatever color you want your mesh color to be. Second layer, make a standard material with "wire" checked and that will be the color of your wires.
You can also control the width of the wires using this method under the extended parameters drop down.
