Our buddies over at Figureprints
, the company that makes custom 3D printed sculptures of your WoW
characters, have expanded their business yet again -- this time, they're opening the doors to you EU players. Ed Fries, who we have spoken with twice
now, says that they are finally ready to expand overseas, and EU players can now order their own custom figurines through the website
There is a small catch, however -- at this point, while there is no lottery
as far as we know, they are charging European customers €129.95, which ends up being about $166, or about $30 more than the US price of $129.95. And obviously shipping overseas from the company's HQ here in America probably won't be too cheap either, and shipping is extra no matter where you're buying the figures from. It looks like Figureprints just figured they'd charge "129.95" to both sides of the world, but thanks to the exchange rate, EU folks are actually paying more.
But then again, we're guessing that people who have been waiting for their chance in the EU to pick one of these up will probably go for the higher price anyway. Figureprints started out a little rough with their limited production capabilities, and a few early bumps in quality
, but lately it seems like they're rolling along better than ever.
