One good thing about Disney buying Lucasfilm is that men and women, young and old, can now have their faces printed onto that of a Stormtrooper. And by 'printed', we mean the awesome technology that is 3D printing.
Every weekend from May 17th until June 9th, Disney's Hollywood Studios in Florida will be hosting Star Wars Weekends. You'll probably be queuing for much longer than the actual 'D-Tech Me' experience, but when you see that Stormtrooper figurine with your face on it, everything will be worth it.
So what's this D-Tech Me experience all about? It's basically a 10-minute session where the world's purported highest-resolution, single-shot 3D scanner will scan your face. This data will be used to create your customized figurine.
The only bad thing about the deal is that you won't be able to get your Stormtrooper right afterwrads. You'll have to wait seven to eight weeks for it to arrive and you better pray that the post office didn't fudge things up and break it in transit.
