When I first got the makerbot, I promised my daughter, Kaya, that I would use it to make her some toys. I then proceeded to use the next two months to make a zillion little things and test objects for myself while I figured out how to use the machine.
To make up for not having fulfilled my promise of toys, I printed a 3D Model of Rarity from My Little Ponys, created by the oh-so-talented
I took the obj that *KP-ShadowSquirrel
made available, and put it into zbrush to use Dynamesh to take all of the various pieces and combine them into a single solid water-tight mesh, Then I threw a claypolish over the whole thing, decimated it, popped it back into Maya to check the scale before slicing it with skienforge and ReplicatorG.
I printed it with raft support, which wasn't nearly as hard to remove as I had feared it would be.
Kaya has already taken it and painted it all sorts of colors. lol.

The specific one I printed here is this one:
