Geek Gift Ideas – Dec 12 (World Of Warcraft Figure Prints)

With over eight million subscribers world wide, World of Warcraft is the largest MMORPG (massively multiplayer online role playing game) in history. Chances are very good that the geek in your life has another life in this world. Here is a gift idea that caught me entirely by surprise. Figure Prints can recreate your geek’s own World of Warcraft character as a fully detailed 3D replica figure. You can even choose the armor and weapons that they use from the items in your character’s inventory. Here are a few sample pictures.

So why would this be such a good gift idea for a WoW geek? Well, I know from experience that people a LOT of time into developing these characters. In many cases they get very attached to their alternate universe alter egos. So having a real life representation of that character that you could touch and look at would be very appealing.

This is a video of Randy Deluxe from The Instance podcast seeing the Figure Print for the very first time. Click through to the site if you cannot see the video.

Is it just me or does Randy look like Commander Riker from Star Trek – Next Generation?
