Become an Imperial Stormtrooper Through 3D Printing at Disney Star Wars Weekends

Disney 3D-Printed StormtroopersHave you ever wanted to be a stormtrooper? Disney is giving you a chance, with a little help from 3D printing technology.

Last year, we told you about the opportunity to get a figurine of yourself encased in carbonite, like everyone’s favorite Corellian smuggler. This year the Dark Side is stronger, and the in addition to carbon freeze, you can choose to join up with the Empire. As part of Star Wars Weekends at Disney’s Hollywood Studios (part of Walt Disney World in Florida) you can put a 3D rendering of your head atop a stormtrooper’s armored body and have it printed for eternal display on your bookshelf.

As with last year’s deal, the figure will run you $99.95 (plus shipping and sales tax), and after a 10-minute 3D scanning session, the figure will be mailed to you 7-8 weeks later. The offer is available only during Star Wars Weekends in 2013, which run May 17 – 19, May 24 – 26, May 31 – June 2, and June 7 – 9.

So, if you’re going to be at the Disney World parks in the next month, remember your opportunity to join the Empire’s finest!
