For $100, you can immortalize yourself as a 7.5 inch stormtroooper figurine. The promotion runs at the Walt Disney World resort each weekend from May 17 to June 9 as part of the park’s annual celebration of “a galaxy far, far away.”
Created by Disney Research, the scanning process only requires about 10 minutes of exposure to a high-resolution single-shot 3D face scanner. From there, the image of your visage goes off to a 3D printer and the finished figurine arrives on your doorstep some 7-8 weeks later. There’s also a carbon-freeze option for those of you who want to be like Han Solo. (Unfortunately, Princess Leia will not rescue you from the block of carbon-freeze.)
Reservations are required, so if you want to take part you’d better call 407-WDW-TECH (407-939-8324).
