    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!!! :D

    Hi there,

    I actually created a desktop buddy about a year ago or so. 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?)

    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...

    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 :cry:

    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 :eek:

    3Dprinted figurines coming soon to theaters in 3D !
