...I'm just not that narcissistic. Or attractive, really.

Years ago at a Star Wars Celebration, Disney was offering custom statuettes of you as a Jedi, stormtrooper, or pilot (Rebel or Imperial). So yeah...this is gong to be extended to Star Wars if the Ghostbusters experiment succeeds.

/The statuettes were $200, so I had to pass, sadly.

Friend of mine got one of himself as a rebel pilot. The face is mostly right but for what ever reason he's sporting EpIV Luke's fabulous hair but in black. It's not the hairstyle I remember him sporting at the time but hey, it's his figure

I used to see these at comic-cons, "3D print a doll of yourself" with a printer and a big scanner you step into

Not sure who's that into it. I think even a kid would think it's weird

There was, may still be, a vendor in the Miracle Mile Mall in Las Vegas that made figures like that. They also had a much cheaper option. For $30 you could get a Lego head with your image. Still a bit pricey but at least you can put it on a variety of characters. Currently I am Lego Batman.

The first ic in TFA looks like a bright Chris rock.  There's a joke in there somewhere.

Hasbro, you say? Can we get our heads put on a transformer or a pony?

Mine will have the Kung Fu wank grip, only smaller.

The amount of plastic to make my fat ass makes it unaffordable and ecologically unsound.

There was a brief period where every mall had a scanning booth and you could have sandstone statues of yourself made, like an upgrade from the usual family photo.

Maybe you should have worshiped Vigo instead. Dude was killed and brushed it off. See what I did there?

Back in the 1980's Hasbro had an offer in which you pay to get  a G.I. Joe figure of "You" as a member of Steel Brigade (all skin was covered up.)  I wonder if the G.I. Joe offering will be something similar (though "Steel Brigade" is being used by another line.)

If they can do Pony OCs they'll make a fortune.

Sure, they intend.

But I'd wait until after June 8 to see whether they stay sane or give everything over to Alta Fox, who will then spin off the one marque that's making them money hand over fist (Wizards of the Coast) and send their stock price plunging.  If the latter, don't hold your breath.
