Final Fantasy VII, a role-playing video game released in 1997 features a large number of fictional characters. The game follows Cloud Strife, a troubled mercenary who joins with an eco-terrorist group to stop the megacorporation Shinra from draining the life of the Planet to use as an energy source.

It turns out the PlayStation's polygonal models of Final Fantasy VII's colorful cast are perfect for 3D printing. Artist Joaquin Baldwin (joabaldwin) has recently re-created a set of Final Fantasy VII characters using 3D printing, and they look awesome.


"Low polygon version just like the one you controlled (briefly) in the FF7 game, with original textures and manually posed." writes joabaldwin. And 3D printing is perfect for making these models. "The only things I changed from the original was making thin parts a bit thicker (like the swords), or thickening Vincent's cape (in reality it's a flat polygon). But the proportions are all the same."

So now you can grap a Sephiroth, or Aeris Gainsborough at joabaldwin's Shapeways store. The other characters available for you to trip down memory lane are Tifa Lockhart, Barret Wallace, Vincent Valentine, Red XIII, Cid Highwind, Cait Sith and Yuffie Kisaragi. But no Heidegger and the Turks yet... what a shame. Still, with 3D printing, they turned out pretty cool.

It costs $18 for Cloud, little Yuffie just $14, but Barret costs $29 because more material needed.

2 years after is too late to say this, but I sent an email to the creator of these figures, and he told me that Square Enix didn't let him to sell the figures. And he cannot show how he made them. Sorry, I also wanted these great figures ;(
