I was searching and was disappointed that I didn't see any models or figurines thats sits on your desktop screen.
My suggestions are :
Link (from Zelda)
Anime Characters
Pokemon Characters
Assassins Creed Altair
Resident Evil Monster/Characters

And Many More!!


Post some more to let someone know!!! Very Happy

Hi there,

I actually created a desktop buddy about a year ago or so. http://shpws.me/lreZ It is for sale if you're interested. Unfortunately, even though you're suggestions are awesome, I believe what you mentioned would fall under copyright infringement. (Would someone else care to clarify if that's correct?)

Cheers,
M_Sill

Didn't think that one through.... Isn't there a way perhaps to get the "ok" to make such things? Confused

Sure there is! It's called ''product licensing'' I believe...

Sounds like some people need to read the content policy in the terms and conditions

I see so even if you got the Product Licensing still can't do it... Even when if it was an original work of your favorite character?

If you have the rights to produce it, it's fine, as long as you abide by any agreement you have with the owner. If the owner asks us to take it down, we take it down. And you assume all legal responsibility.

I see... So in other words its really up to the owner even when the owner permits you to create such things to sell there will be some issues either way? Then don't do it general is what I'm being lead to. TT_TT

You could use figurines that already exist after you made an agreement with the owner so he can take most of your earnings Crying or Very Sad

But i think it would be way more fun to create your own figurine and make it a success so you can sell the Product Licensing of your figurine to some talented movie/game maker Surprised

3Dprinted figurines coming soon to theaters in 3D !
