Play Out Your Favorite Star Wars Moments Using A Stormtrooper With Your Face On It

We gladly gave Disney a fair bit of grief the other day when we rained judgement upon their "brilliant" attempt to legally own Dia de los Muertos, but we're gladly willing to praise the House of Mouse too — such as when they do brilliant things, like offer people the opportunity to become cannon-fodder Imperial Stormtroopers!

From the Disney Parks blog:

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.

Now, as noted above, the figurine will take roughly two months to show up at your door, and it'll cost $100 — but it's an incredibly detailed replica of your face and head on a Stormtrooper body. It's not something I'm willing to go to Florida and drop $100 for, but it's something I find immensely cool to a nigh-unreasonable degree.

Oh, that's an important thing to note, too: You can only experience this fun bit of future-tech-used-for-toys at Disney World in Florida. Sorry, folks who have already planned their D-Land trips.

Of course, if you're interested in going the captured-smuggler-frozen-in-carbonite route, but no one out there is lame enough to actually think that's better than being a Stormtrooper, right?
