You’ll recall FigurePrints, the 3D print service that specializes in transforming your World of Warcraft avatar into an actual, hold-in-your-hand figurine. It seems they’ve generated a bit of interest among WoW players. So much so, that they’ve decided to operate 24×7 nonstop punching out WoW figurines!
Their Vancouver, Canada production plant now has eleven staff and six 3D printers to service the tens of thousands of WoW players who enter a monthly lottery to win a chance at getting their character printed – at a cost of US$129.95 each.
We thought figure printing would be a big deal, and it looks like it’s caught on with the WoW universe. Not so with Second Life yet, in spite of services available that can do the job.
