3D print your own customized Spartan from Halo 5: Guardians
Xbox Wire just announced that starting today, fans of Halo 5: Guardians will be able to order their own 3D-printed version of their customized Spartan from the game. The Spartan figures can be created in three different sizes ranging in price from $29.99 USD to $89.99 USD, and each figure "will also include a Halo 5: Guardians REQ Supply Pack for no additional charge, available until Dec. 6, 2015."
Xbox and 343 Industries has teamed up with Sandboxr and 3D Systems to produce the figures, which allow for a wide range of personalized options:
Using items unlocked in the game, fans can build a 3D prototype of their Spartan, choosing from 175 armor and helmet types respectively, and more than 30 color variations. 3D Spartans can also be positioned in five different stances with five fixed weapons, and for an added touch of personalization, add up to 18 characters of text on the stand to display your Spartan’s name or slogan.
The page on Halo Waypoint for the 3D printing service gives a quick rundown of how the process works, reminding users that the only armor options they'll be able to choose from are the ones that they've already unlocked in-game, "so make sure to open all your REQ packs before you start."
