Directly from StarWars.com, comes an announcement for one of the coolest–although not exactly inexpensive–souvenirs you will ever have a chance to bring home with you: You’re going to have the opportunity to relive the carbon freezing scene from The Empire Strikes Back with the “Carbon-Freeze Me” experience. The new experience was created especially for Disney Parks. Using state-of-the-art imaging technology, this experience casts your likeness as a three-dimensional, eight-inch figurine. At the “Carbon Freezing Chamber” (located adjacent to The American Idol Experience), several cameras will capture multiple angles of your face. The images are then reconstructed in a computer for processing, and, in approximately four weeks, the completed figurine is shipped directly to your house.
Each carbonite figurine is $99.95 (plus shipping). You can order additional figurines using the same image scan for $74.95 each. The replica figurine can be hung on a wall, just like the gangster Jabba the Hutt did in Return of the Jedi. Guests also receive a light-up wristband. The experience will officially open on Friday May 18 with the launch of Disney Star Wars Weekends 2012. Reservations are required and can be made starting Monday, May 7 by calling 407-WDW-TECH (407-939-8324).
