Activision has announced that with Skylanders Imaginators you can create your own Skylander and then import them into an app called Skylanders Creator. At that point, you’ll be able to purchase your figure in real life 3D form through 3D printing and have it act like any other Skylander in your game. The figures will cost $49.99 and be available in limited quantities and limited regions.
Not only can you have your creation 3D printer, you can also get T-Shirts and Imaginator Cards. The Imaginator Cards and 3D printed figure will allow you to play your Skylander in game, the T-Shirt just keeps you a bit warmer.
People with their own 3D printers will not be able to print their creations directly.
The Skylanders Creator app will be available for iOS and Android devices.
Skylanders Imaginators launches for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Wii U, Xbox 360 and Xbox One on the 16th October 2016.
