Jedi Knight and TIE-Fighter Pilot D-Tech Me Coming to Star Wars Weekends

The 2015 Star Wars Weekends at Disney’s Hollywood Studios is about to get an amazingly, new collectible addition (and you can say experience). Two new D-Tech Me figurines – a Jedi Knight and a TIE-Fighter pilot will premier during the special event.

Star Wars – D-Tech Me is a 10-minute experience that uses the world’s highest-resolution, single-shot 3D face scanner which is  later sent to a high resolution 3D printer to create the figurine. You can find this new experience inside Darth’s Mall, near Streets of America across from Studio Catering Company.
