Skimbal made these awesome guys which have made great Christmas gifts.
I did a few tweaks. The original had a blank head and you would print 'face_mask' and draw it on. My version has the face modeled into the head. There's an innie and outtie version, I think the innie turns out better.
The body now has no text on the back and I cleaned up a few geometry problems.
See Dogbert's customizer for hats: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:220973
Print out everything, I used 5% fill, 1 shell .25 layer height for most everything.
You have a choice of 3 heads and if you use the blank, also print the 'face_mask' to draw on the face. There are 2 bodies to choose from as well.
You may have to do some trimming on parts, in particular you may have to shave the corners on the bottom of the body so the fringe will go on easier. Trim the supports off the hips.
The pins should only have glue on the portion that goes inside the arms and legs, otherwise they won't move.
The hat and fringe need joined together, usually with 3mm filament bits used as pegs. I have 1.75mm filament, so I used some brass tubing, but you can use screws, toothpicks or just glue them together.
