Halo 5: Guardians players can now create 3D figures of their in-game Spartans

Sandboxr is no stranger to offering 3D prints of in-game characters, but now it is joining forces with one of the biggest gaming franchises in the world, allowing users to create 3D figures of their in-game characters from Halo 5: Spartans.

The concept of 3D printing has taken off in recent years. The gaming world has also stepped into this world with certain games allowing for the 3D printing of a user's in-game character. While several high-profile titles, like Smite, World of Tanks, and Infinity Blade, have had this feature available, arguably the biggest gaming franchise yet is throwing its hat behind the 3D printing phenomenon, with Halo 5: Guardians now allowing users to print out 3D Spartan figurines.

As with the aforementioned titles, the figurine prints will be done through Sandboxr and its proprietary 3D printing customization platform, as well as through 3D Systems' full color 3D printing tech. Users will be able to design a Spartan using the avaialble cosmetic packs they've unlocked over the course of Halo 5: Guardians. These cosmetic pieces can be found through the game's REQ packs that can be picked up with in-game currency.

The video below was issued last week, but the 3D customization has been made available today. Figures will run for $29.99. To create a 3D Spartan, visit Halo Waypoint and log into your Xbox Live account.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
