Hello shapeways community

First time here.
I'm creating a knight action-figure which consists of several individual parts. The goal is to have a knight with moveable arms, torso, head and removable shield/sword.

I'm pretty much done with the modelling part in blender. Right now it looks like in the attached image. Since there are several individual parts, I was wondering how you would recommend printing this? Print each part on its own? Or join the parts with some geometry (thin cylinders?) to create one single object? Do you see any problems that could arise when printing this model? I'll be using White Strong & Flexible material.

Thanks a lot for any feedback.
