Disney merchandising is not only genius, it caters very successfully to the ‘Me Generation.’ It wasn’t long ago when owning a seven inch Stormtrooper statue was enough for any kid. Today’s child, or fanatic adult, can now BE the Stormtrooper thanks to what Disney is touting as its “single-shot 3D face scanner created by our Imagineering scientists with Disney Research labs.” The image has to be created at one of the designated Disney locations and during Star Wars Weekends running May 17 – 19, May 24 – 26, May 31 – June 2, and June 7 – 9.
Once an image is captured, it is sent to a 3D printer to create the figurine.
Back in August, Disney did the same D-Tech Me 3D promotion, but this time young girls could be princess statues:
Your Stormtrooper “experience” as Disney touts it, includes the design, application, printing and creation for just $99.95, plus shipping and tax.
What do you think about this ‘Me’ design? Cute or Creepy?
