MAQET the 3D printing service has again teamed up with Frank Kozik to produce a Christmas twist on his Hedgehog 'Heathrow' figure. Limited to 50 pairs (although it does say for 2011 so these may be re-released next year, I'm not 100% sure) these cute little dudes will certainly bring the Christmas Spirit to your shelves.  MAQET uses Plastin to create its figures, which leads to a awesomely shiny and smooth porcelain like feeling. The only draw back I have seen so far is the printing/detail quality (i want to say resolution, but I'm not sure that's what it is). It can come our a little blurry, almost like a bleed in the paint (which of course it isn't because it isn't paint, more of a melt). But to be fair this was on the original SDCC Heathrow's I saw so I'm interested to see these in the flesh to see if the technology has improved any. 

These dudes are produced in a 'shelf version' and also a 'Tree Ornament', to, well, hang on your tree obviously. They stand at 3.5" tall and weigh 70g. 3D printing is certainly starting to become a more accessible option for many people. Keep an eye open for the soon to be released Clutter issue 16 for a full article discussing the various options of 3D printing.
