One of the cooler things I saw this weekend at the Star Wars Weekends, was the latest iteration of D-Tech Me. If you recall, last year Star Wars Weekends offered the chance to have your face to a carbonite-frozen action figure; well this year, they have added a new collectible in a stormtrooper figure.
The D-Tech Me experience is as follows:
The 10-minute experience uses the world’s highest-resolution, single-shot 3D face scanner created by our Imagineering scientists with Disney Research labs. That captured image is later sent to a high resolution 3D printer to create the figurine. The completed figurine will arrive within 7-8 weeks after the experience if shipping domestically (it takes a little longer if shipping internationally). Guests will also receive either a Carbon-Freeze Me light-up band or a collector button depending upon which option they choose. The Star Wars – D-Tech Me experience is $99.95, plus shipping and applicable sales tax. To book your experience, please call 407-WDW-TECH (407-939-8324) to ask about availability. We will only offer the experience during Star Wars Weekends 2013 (May 17 – 19, May 24 – 26, May 31 – June 2, and June 7 – 9).
As you can see, the faces are somewhat cartoonish is their final form, but they are pretty awesome. Be sure to check it out if you are at the Star Wars Weekends fun.
