Disney has announced that Star Wars – D-Tech Me will return this year with a few new options for guests. Fans will be able to get 3D printed 7-inch and 16-inch action figures of various sorts.

This year, the experience will be located inside Darth's Mall, located in Soundstage 1 between Studio Backlot Tour and Toy Story Midway Mania.

The popular "Carbon-Freeze Me" option is brought back again, in addition, Disney is offering you the chance to put your face on a 3D-printed Stormtrooper figurine. This year features also female options offered for X-wing pilot, Carbon-Freeze Me, and Stormtrooper figures. For children, Alderaan Princess and Carbon-Freeze Me figures will be available in more youthful appearances.

You will need to pose for 10 minutes, Disney uses its highest quality, single shot 3D face scanner to capture a 3D image of your face. That captured image is later sent to a high resolution 3D printer to create the figurine.

This year Disney will offer two different figure sizes: 7.5-inch and 16-inch figure. D-Tech Me 7-inch figures are $99.95 each, but for the 16-inch figures, retail is $1,499.95 each, plus shipping and applicable sales tax. A wise Jedi Master once said "size matters not," but here size matters... Guests will also receive a specially designed button. Completed figures will arrive within 7-8 weeks after the experience.

Additionally, Disney will also share details about how you can have your image from last year added to a new figure this year.

Printing the head and attaching to a standard body reminds me of what the romans did to their statues

can't be 1,499.95, that's absurd.

It strikes me that the head is the only thing that needs to be custom, a custom head could be placed on one of a handful of already existing bodies, rather than print the whole thing.
