When it comes to designing objects for 3D printing, there are those designers who are just getting started with the idea that they can actually turn virtual 3D models into tangible objects through the use of desktop machines. Then there are those designers, like one man named Philippe Disse, who have experience in the field, and bring to fruition designs that actually are functional, innovative, and/or unique. Back in December, we did a story on his uniquely designed 3D printable Air Racers, and since then he has come up with numerous other designs.
Disse’s latest creation is something that many people who are fans of Star Wars and/or Mickey Mouse will certainly love. Yes, I said Star Wars and Mickey Mouse in the same sentence (and not just about Disney’s acquisition of Lucasfilm). This is because Disse has designed a 3D printable mash-up combining the two.
“I just love Mash-ups and not just Mash-up music,” Disse tells 3DPrint.com. “I’m thrilled about the world of Star Wars, and although I’m not a huge fan, I’m amazed by the designs George Lucas created in the early 70’s. The expression of Darth Vader and his Crew is priceless. If you see a mask of a Storm Trooper, you know trouble is heading your way!”
Disse decided to take one of the world’s most well-known and friendly characters, Mickey Mouse and his girlfriend Minnie, and then combine them with the main ground-force of the Galactic Empire, the Imperial Stormtroopers. Quite the frightening thought, huh? The final result is what Disse calls Imperial Storm Mickey and Imperial Storm Minnie, and he refers to them as “Desktop Disney Troopers.”
“The greatest American surprise of all, The Imperial Storm Mickey, having his headquarters in Disneyland,” Disse joked with us. “Even Disney rules the Galaxy ;). I’m looking forward to creating more figures in the near future. To combine two or more different worlds in to one, I just have so much fun making 3D-Mashups and creative sculptures.”
Surely many kids will have fun with these unique miniature statues as well, if they can convince their parents to go against everything they have known, and dare 3D print one of these mash-ups. Disse is certainly a unique talent when it comes to designing objects for 3D printing.
If you are interested in checking up on his latest creations, be sure to follow him on Thingiverse, where you can also download and print these models out yourself. What do you think about this unique creation from Disse? Discuss in the Imperial Storm Mickey forum thread on 3DPB.com.
