3D Printed Custom Action Figure

Here's a new idea to create your own 3D printed custom action figure called Makie by MakieLab.

"MakieLab is a London-based toys and games company that's dedicated to creating "future-smashing" toys. What exactly that is, I'm not sure. The company's creations feature a rare level of customizability and detail in both the models and their clothing, not to mention realistic glossy eyes, a design choice some might deem creepy, but that I prefer to think of as awesome."  
 
Using highly sophisticated 3D printers that bonds powdered plastic via lasers, so the print resolution is quite high, Makie let's you design figures using its online app, making it easy to customize the figure without too much effort. Each figure also has a hollow inside to allow intrepid hackers to insert electronics into the models. Here's a quick figure we made:


Each 10" figure is well articulated and comes in three shades of skin color and can choice your eye and hair color also. If you'd like to know more about or order your own Makie go HERE.
