Pro gaming action figures are now a thing
Thanks to 3D Systems, a 3D printing company capable of scanning a person and transforming them into a creepy and lifelike tiny plastic avatar, the entire Dignitas League of Legends team, plus coach William “Scarra” Li, can fit neatly on your desk. Or on top of your computer monitor. Or inside of your display case. Or as part of a voodoo ritual, if you’re a Counter Logic Gaming fan.
The process is similar to FigurePrints, a service that lets gamers order a replica statue of their in-game World of Warcraft character. Only this time, they're printing the character at the keyboard, not in the computer.
The resemblance is striking, straight down to the arms folded don't-mess-with-me poses of Alberto "Crumbzz" Rengifo and Michael "Imaqtpie" Santana's glorious mane. Alan "KiWiKiD" Nguyen "may or may not" have lost that bet leading to his bowl cut, but now it will be immortalized forever in miniature form, whether he likes it or not.
The figures come with a hefty price tag $39.99 each, but for quality like this, it’s got to be worth it, right?
The only thing missing is a miniature Baron Nashor where Dignitas can throw the game.
