Christianson didn’t design the figure himself; he used a smaller-scale one that he found on Thingiverse, though he says he can no longer find the original. If you want to make your own Half Man pal, you can find all of the files here. Christianson also 3D printed a 1:1 scale Iron Throne, impressively, so if you want to see Tyrion on the Iron Throne, you can place him on there and happily taunt Cersei. 3D printed Tyrion is holding a glass of wine, naturally, and wears the brooch designating him Hand of the Queen.Christianson may not have designed the original files for his creation, but his 3D printed statue still shows a great deal of talent, particularly the flawless paint job. The Hand of the Queen looks ready to impart advice and/or snark – now all Christianson needs is a life-sized Daenerys Targaryen for him to accompany. That would take a lot more PLA and printing hours, however.
Fan art is a major segment of the 3D printing world – just look at all the Star Wars and Marvel 3D prints that are out there. Cosplayers have found an invaluable resource in 3D printing; the ability to make realistic props and costumes has been greatly enhanced by the use of 3D design and 3D printing. The technology has taken fan dedication to a whole new level; rather than having life-sized cardboard cutouts of your favorite characters, you can now have actual 3D versions. It’s easier if your subject is only 4’5″, but if you have the time and patience, there’s no one who can’t be rendered in life-sized 3D.
