What was that guy from Attack the Block doing at the beginning of the trailer? Was the new Storm Trooper helmet design any good? And what the hell is that new lightsaber about?!

An army of 3D print designers immediately went about finding answers to these questions (well, not so much to the Attack the Block one), creating some cool free 3D printing models in the process.

3D print downloads include the ball droid, the new broadsaber, and the new Storm Trooper helmet.
