Reddit user Joaquin Baldwin created these amazingly accurate low-poly figures of various characters from the immensely successful Final Fantasy VII (FF7). Each model was created using a 3D color printer.

The result is a surprisingly charming set of small figurines that are as novel as they are nostalgic. Imagine having the entire cast of FF7 on your bookshelf to relive the memories of one of the greatest RPGs ever created. Thankfully, this is possible, as all of these models are for sale on Shapeways.com.

The low polygon count characteristic of older games allows for a near perfect reproduction of each character. Will we soon see a development of character models from older games taken out of their virtual worlds? As 3D printing becomes more advanced, only time will tell!
