Hasbro, Disney, Walmart, and a 3D printing company called 3DPlusMe all teamed up to launch the "Super Awesome Me", a personalized 3D printing experience that allows kids and kids at heart to become one of their favorite characters, Captain America or Iron Man.

The "Super Awesome Me" scans your face and provides you with a customized, one-of-a-kind action figure.

As part of Disney Consumer Products' Marvel Super Hero September celebration, the Super Awesome Me experience will launch at ten Walmart and two Sam's Club locations from September 19th to September 28th. Everyone is encouraged to share the fun online using the hashtag #MarvelSuperHeroSept.

"With 3D printing, we're now able to provide fans of Marvel Super Heroes for the first time ever with this very unique opportunity to create a one-of-a-kind action figure featuring their own likeness," said John Frascotti, chief marketing officer, Hasbro, Inc. "By partnering with Walmart, Disney, and 3DPlusMe, we're delivering to consumers a totally personalized product experience."

The "Super Awesome Me" experience begins when the fan visits an in-store scanning station where a 3D face scanner captures their likeness to create a 3D model. The 3D face scanning process uses a DSLR camera and a Kinect and takes approximately 3-5 min. At launch, fans can choose from Captain America or Iron Man to create a personalized 12" action figure.

The "Super Awesome Me" figure features a traditional 12" articulated plastic action figure body and a full color 3D printed head. The material it used is gypsum and the figure is recommended for fans ages 4 years and older because it is fragile and not made for rough play.

The "Super Awesome Me" figure is priced at $45 each and will be available for pick up at Walmart locations or ship to Sam's Club customers in four weeks.

Beginning on Friday, September 19th the "Super Awesome Me" experience will be available at the following locations:
