Disney World Will Slap Your Head On A Stormtrooper Now

Last year, guests at Disney's Hollywood Studios had the opportunity to get a miniature version of themselves frozen in carbonite thanks to the magic of 3D printing. This year, that one-of-a-kind souvenir will be available again, with the addition of a Stormtrooper option if you like what the Empire has been doing in that galaxy far, far away.

Because the stormtrooper includes the guest's entire head — hair and all — Disney's Imagineers had to develop the world's highest resolution single-shot 3D scanner to speed up the digitizing process. After all, the lines at Disney World are long enough as it is. The personalised collectible will still set you back $100, and now takes seven to eight weeks to arrive, presumably due to the extra detail on the figurine. Is it worth it? If you've ever priced a custom set of Stormtrooper armour, this is a far cheaper way to Star Wars cosplay.
