Isn't the print done by the same company that did the smite gods? If so, they use a sand mixture to print their statues. That's why they have that texture. They're pretty neat to hold. Though, I don't really know the value behind quality 3D prints. But I know statues of game characters aren't Ever cheap

So, when I went to a Microsoft Store nearby here, they had a 3D printing machine and demo for everyone to try out. People were printing out insanely detailed (as compared to this) T-Rex skulls and skeletons, and different random robot parts for free. I'm not saying these designs/builds are so bad that they should be put in a fire, but I certainly don't think they're near worth the price. 3D printing is at a level where it can look hyper-realistic for relatively cheap, assuming one has the expensive machine already.

I highly doubt the cost is anywhere near the cost of production on this. I wouldn't be so quick to assign malicious intent to 343 or Microsoft; it's likely all they could get as far as partnerships/deals go with relative ease, but to be so quick to defend - and use false dilemmas for such defenses - seems naive. No, someone not being able to solve a problem has no bearing on if or if not the problem exists. It doesn't matter that you can't get 3D printed personalized Halo figures anywhere else - the quality of these models are sub-par regardless. I would buy one for 10 bucks, absolutely, and I wouldn't doubt money would still be made on that purchase too.
Ive gotten some free stuff from 3d printers at the microsoft store too. They also did look more detailed then this. But these sandboxr guys are making their stuff out of weird sand for some reason. Not smooth melty plastic like the rest of 3d printers. Maybe this is for environmental reasons or something.
SANDboxr, thats explain everything
But why?!??!?
Looks pretty good for 3 D print without a sanding down and repainting.
Major Nelson's is smaller than the smallest size available to us.

Looks like a cake topper made with icing.

A little bit of relief. I would like to see a sample of what is available to us.

What the heck? How small is his laptop? Judging by the size of his keys that looks atleast 5 inches tall.
guys off topic but here is something related to 3d printing https://www.youtube.com/user/jamesbruton
glad I seen this.. ouch
Literally unplayable
In addition, there is an error with Sandboxr's model of the male Warrior armor. The right arm is always gray and bright white, regardless of the player's selected color. Not to mention, the pattern the right arm has doesnt even match the rest of the armor.

Thanks for the heads up. Yeeesh I could do better with spit wads and a marker.
I'd like to see this. Where can I send my money to order one of your superior 3D printed Spartans?
Sorry man but as a toy customizer it looks like -Yoink- I could do better with my libraries printer. If i had time I would prove it to you because quite honestly I could do a lot better with clay and markers maybe not spit wads but I wouldn't know without trying.
Do not post spam.

Looks like the 3D printed models also have "dynamic" [low] resolution!
The quality is really bad for the price they are charging. When I first saw them, I thought they would be around 5 dollars to 10 dollars.
