Watch INFINITY WAR’s Thanos Comes to Life Via 3D Printer

It took Marvel ten years and 18 MCU movies worth of groundwork before they fully unleashed the Mad Titan on the universe in Avengers: Infinity War, and the big purple guy was worth the wait. But you can see Thanos come to life in mere seconds thanks to this time lapse video that shows 3D-printers work as magically as someone snapping their fingers after they collected all of the Infinity Stones.

This video, from the YouTube channel WildRose Builds, once again highlights how high-end 3D-printers (this one is a Prusa i3 MK3 model) are basically performing modern magic, as it builds Thanos’s head–with an internal lattice structure for support–from the neck up, layer by layer, into an eerily accurate, highly detailed bust. You can really feel those chin wrinkles! It also includes time lapse videos of builds for a loot llama, a “benchy” tugboat, and a Witcher Medallion.

The longer you stare at that Thanos sculpture the more you expect it to talk to you. So, uh, any chance of using this to bring Spider-Man back? Asking for a few million devastated friends. Because while we know this isn’t actual magic, just some amazing modern technology, we’ll take any hope we can get on how to undo the end of Infinity War.

Think if we build an entire statue of Thanos and ask him nicely he’ll do it himself?

What other character from Marvel’s MCU would you love to see built next with this 3D-printer? Don’t run from it; destiny calls you to give us your best idea in the comments below.
