Growing up I was obsessed with Star Wars. I had Star Wars action figures, Star Wars models, and even Star Wars undies, but nothing can compare to what Disney is allowing kids and adults alike to participate in this year. That is assuming that you have the money.
This year at Star Wars Weekend 2014, located at Hollywood Studios, Disney is bringing back their D-Tech Me 3D scanning booths. Fans will be able to enter a booth, get their head scanned by one of the most sophisticated one shot 3D scanners on the market, and then have an action figure of there favorite Star Wars Character 3D printed with their face on it. What more could a fan want?
The booth to have this done at, will be located at Darth’s Mall in Soundstage 1, between Studio Backlot Tour and Toy Story Midway Mania. The scanning process will take about 10 minutes to complete. Adults will have two options to choose from; either the Carbon Freeze Me, or the Stormtrooper figure. Children can have their face on either Alderaan Princess or Carbon-Freeze Me.
Disney is offering two different figure sizes. One is 7 inches tall, and costs $99.95, while the other is 16 inches tall, and will run you quite a hefty $1499.95 price tag. All prices are prior to any shipping charges. It will take approximately 7-8 weeks from the day you get your scan done, until you receive your figure in the mail. If you got scanned last year, you will also have the option of using that image instead of a new one, to create a different action figure.
“I was astounded at how accurate my figure turned out. If I was a Stormtrooper, this is exactly how I pictured I would look,” joked Robert Calico, a Star War’s fan who participated in the scanning process last year.
The scanning booths will be set up from May 16th until June 15th, weekends only. To set up an appointment you can call 407-WDW-TECH. Check out the video from a couple of years ago. The technology has been upgraded quite a bit since then, leaving participants with a very realistic finished product. Discuss this story at 3DPrintBoard.
