buy Lyrica in thailand May the 4th be with you. Whether you’re a Star Wars fan or not, chances are you’ve heard this dated pun before, but this year’s annual celebration brought at least one new thing to fanatics everywhere: the skulls of their favorite Star Wars characters.

Misoprostol online order Not literal skulls, of course. Most humans don’t have the nerve or steady fingers necessary to take down something like a full-grown Wookiee. According to 3DPrint.com, through the magic of 3D printing, there will be a much easier and diplomatic way to get a model skull of your favorite galactic creature this year.

The 3D-Printable Toys and 3D Printer test kits company 3DKitBash has announced they will embark on a Kickstarter-funded journey to make these miniature skull replications possible.

“Two years ago, we had a steel mold created and worked with a rotational-molding facility to have the figures produced,” Natalie Mathis, 3DKitbash co-founder, told 3DPrint.com. “It was a lot of up-front investment. It’s really only feasible if you’re selling hundreds-of-thousands of figures or more.”

Rotational molding is a unique four-stage process that involves molding plastic resin using heat instead of pressure, which is more traditional. This process can be extremely expensive and time-consuming though, which led Mathis and her team to work on something more attainable to the masses.

The Kickstarter campaign is currently offering one skull model for $15 or all 15 models for $250. What better way to say “I love you” than a unique desk-sized skull model of your significant other’s favorite character? The report states there are 15 models but does not identify all of them.

“3D printing through a service provider, like Shapeways, is definitely a new alternative that makes it possible for shops like ours to produce fun figures – it’s a really exciting time for toy developers,” said 3DKitbash co-founder Quincy Robinson told 3DPrint.com.
