WoW Figure Prints

I was mighty impressed when I came across this new service from those clever Blizzard guys. World of Warcraft is big business, but it is great to see them spending the millions on cool services like this. While expensive, the fact that they can generate the 3D models from the game world (including current gear) and 3D print it off for people is very cool.
There is a video of the process on the Figure Prints site. Here are a couple of grabs of Kischilli in the posing tool when she was 60. Note that she doesnt actually have these armour sets, but what she is wearing is too too piecemeal :-)
