Back in June, Activision announced a brand new Skylanders game that would allow fans to create their own characters. Starting on October 16th, when Skylanders Imaginators launches in North America, the company will allow you to pay $50 to have your own creations 3D-printed by Shapeways, a company that specializes in 3D printing. On top of this, you can get your Skylander printed on a t-shirt for $25 or on a card for $15.
Players can create their characters with the Skylanders Creator mobile app, which will be available the day Skylanders Imaginators comes out. Paul Reiche, the CEO of Toys for Bob, said that it’s very hard to translate the artwork into a three-dimensional figure. While the 3D-printed toys won’t be as detailed as other Skylanders, they still have a decent amount of quality. Each character will be put on a stand and encased in a plastic dome.
