Rick & Morty has a lot of strange charactersâ€”Birdpersons, sentient farts, the always confusing Abradolf Linclerâ€”but few are as enthusiastically, derangedly helpful as the bright-blue problem solvers known as Mr. Meeseeks. And nowâ€”provided you donâ€™t mind creating a creature for whom continued existence is an eternity of torment, and which seeks only to fulfill its assigned task and then immediately dieâ€”you can have a Mr. Meeseeks of your very own, through the magic of 3D printing.
Thatâ€™s courtesy of YouTubeâ€™s 3D Print Guy, who put together a tutorial (and provided appropriate files) for people to print their own little bright blue helper. Mr. Meeseeks comes in one of two varieties: a happy, youthful version, ready to give a big â€śLook at me! Iâ€™m Mr. Meeseeks!â€ť to the world, and one thatâ€™s slightly longer in the tooth, and willing to start entertaining, letâ€™s say, alternative methods to finishing off the problems it was built to fix.
If you donâ€™t have a 3D printer, you can also purchase the Mr. Meeseeks figures from 3D Print Guyâ€™s Shapeways site. (Or the officially licensed plush one, if thatâ€™s more your speed.) Meanwhile, heâ€™s also got a video for anybody in desperate need of a plumbus, on the off chance that your home doesnâ€™t already have one. (Schleem and fleeb juice not included.)
