Complain all you want about the dated look of Final Fantasy 7′s character models, but damn if they don’t make for fine little knick-knacks. Low-poly has never looked so attractive.

Here is the entire cast (more or less) rendered in the real-life high definition of 3D printing:

So, uh, not sure what happened to ol’ Pikachu here, but it’s definitely not kawaii. Maybe splicing Pikachu’s DNA was a bad idea. Actually, this looks less like a botched experiment and more like a good old-fashioned case of the necromorphs. And this isn’t even his final form.

What is surprising, however, is that the price of the original NES, once adjusted for inflation, is more costly than the PS4. No wonder the old man wouldn’t get me one back in the day. “But your hand-me-down Commodore 64 works just fine!” he’d say.
