@StrangeCrunchy1 You are not doing a fair comparison. MG Gundam model kit is created in high volume, probably 10,000+ kits, these are not 3D printed on demand like our models. Material cost of MG Gundam model kit is probably less than $10 ( but with a few thousand dollar set up cost), materials cost of our Red Ship is more than $100. Our models are printed on demand using 3D printer and our material costs much more than cheap plastic used in model kits. Benefits of 3D printing is that it allow us to create a very small amount of prints without very expensive setup cost needed when you want to create model kit traditional way. True benefits will come with a 3D printing a custom ship you created in a game.

I have to say, I agree. $139 is way too much for a 6" chunk of plastic, no matter how detailed it is…Only reason I’m willing to pay $50-60 for a 6-3/4" MG Gundam model kit is the fact that it has 40+ points of articulation. This has none. That being said, these ARE nice models. The prices just need to be rethought. No piece of plastic is worth that much, sorry.

@Engineer Fan!!! ProJet 4500 can print any color but black. If you want your ship in one color we can print it on a different printer for you. Just send us email to custservspaceengineersprints.com with your design and we will give you a quote.

Hi, saw your prints and thought they looked awesome!! Just had a few questions for you, can I get them in different colors and sizes? I would really love a 12" black one.
How much for that? Also make the whole thing completely painted black, not just the red parts like the one in the picture. These would look so awesome, just image it… a large 12" black ship docking at your port… cant wait.

Keep up the good work!

hi, awesome stuff, 3d printing has come along way, we are now able to print 3d engines, medical tools, and just every day stuff. im glad your using this in relation with your game rather than making a shitty product that you end up mass producing and giving a bad rep to your company, but glad you havent gone down this road.

@TheTreeman Thank you being fan of the Space Engineers and for honesty. Unfortunately you are incorrect. 6 inch Red Ship is very large in volume and that is why it cost $139. Similar size model on Shapeway or from other 3D print studios would go for $200+. Even if you would have it build in Lego pieces the price would still be more than $100. Please understand that all these 3D prints are made on demand. We sold only one 6 inch Red Ship, so you can classify these more as an ART or Prototypes and those are expensive. Your comparison is to cheap plastic mold, which are created in China and printed in thousands, our models are created on demand and have much better resolution/details. Price of our product directly depends on the cost of the material we have to purchase from 3D Systems. Price may go down in future once the volume of player orders will increase and more full color printers will be released on the market (this may take another 2-3 years), meantime Space Engineers Prints is not the only place where you can get these 3D prints but also the most affordable one. If 6 inch size is not in budget, try 3 inch size for $24.95 or even astronauts for $9.95.

Okay, I have an update for my previous comment. The 6-inch Red Ship is $139, but I think it’s really worth something more like 10 bucks, at the most. I’m not saying it’s poorly made, these prints are awesome. But no amount of quality or craftsmanship can change the fact that it’s a little plastic spaceship, and I’m not going to pay the same price I would for a basic smartphone to get a little plastic spaceship.

I’ll stop ranting now. Thanks for listening.

TheTreeman said on April 09, 2015:

I love the game, these are great ships, and the prints are totally cool, but the price needs to be cut down by about 80%. A little plastic model of the Blue Fighter is nowhere near worth 30 dollars.

Sorry SE Prints, you lost me at the pricing a long time ago.

When I have extra money I will have some of my models done!

@Calvin @Coyote714 Thank you very much for your comments. Large ships can be printed with modded block now. Check the LARGE SHIP button on the top.

Calvin said on April 08, 2015:
