Disney Lets Fans 3D Print Themselves As Star Wars Stormtroopers
Enthusiasts are being given the chance to have their face on a figurine.
As part of Disney‘s Star Wars Weekends event (running each weekend from May 17th to June 9th), it is giving fans the chance to put their face on a 3D printed Stormtrooper figurine. The D-Tech Me experience at Disney’s Hollywood Studios uses a high resolution single-shot 3D face scanner created by Disney Research labs.
The 10-minute experience captures an image of the fan, which is later sent to a high resolution 3D printer to create a figurine. The completed figurine will arrive 7-8 weeks after the experience if shipping domestically (a little longer if shipping internationally).
The Star Wars D-Tech Me experience is $99.95, plus shipping and applicable sales tax. A popular “cast yourself in Carbonite” option inspired by a scene from The Empire Strikes Back is also being brought back. Fans will receive either a Carbon-Freeze Me light-up band or a collector button depending on which option they choose.
