Linkin Park, an American rock band from Agoura Hills, California has found a special way to keep their fans happy. The band has partnered with Staramba USA Corp., the German-American technology start-up joint-venture, to bring fans closer to their idols than ever before: the band has announced that they will offer fans a line of 3D printed figures of each band member.

Fans can get a photorealistic 3D figurine from each of the band members: Mike Shinoda, Chester Bennington, Rob Bourdon, Brad Delson, Dave Farrell, and Joe Hahn, in several sizes up to 15 inches tall.

The full colored 3D figures are made from high quality polymer clay on professional 3D printers. Fans can choose any favorite figurine - or get all of them. The single figures are available in 1:10 (7 inches tall) and in 1:5 scale (14 inches tall). The figures in 1:5 scale are limited to 99 pieces of each band member and will be individually hand numbered.

The 1:5 scale, 30 oz figure costs you $499 each. It comes with a lavish gift box that includes a Certificate of Authenticity and Care and Safety Instructions. The 'Band - Linkin Park' set consists of all six band members on a scale of 1:20 with a plain black baseplate. This package is priced at $295.

For those who want a mini version of a band member, smaller 1:10 scale 3D printed replicas are available for $149 per piece.

The best part is, from 8 August to 19 September, the specialists in 3D body scanning and printing are joining the North American kick-off of their world tour "The Hunting Party". Across the 25 concert locations from West Palm Beach and Tampa, near Miami, to Montreal, Phoenix, Dallas and L.A., right through to Concord, near San Diego, fans can have themselves scanned for exclusive 3D selfies - mini statues - made of themselves, the band members, or even of themselves together with the band members. Whether with frontman Chester Bennington or lead guitarist Brad Delson: an unforgettable memory of the event, in the form of a figurine at a scale of 1:20 up to 1:5, will be delivered to your home by courier shortly after the concert experience.

To achieve the best possible quality and authenticity, Staramba uses mobile body scanners which work on the same principles as photogrammetry. The two mobile "Scannerdomes" are controlled via the internet and are comprised of hundreds of individual computer lenses. They will be based at every concert location in a truck with the Linkin Park and Staramba logo.

Linkin Park set from Carnivores Tour in Camden, NJ is streamed live on Yahoo Screen.
