Here’s a quick pointer to a short video of the 3D print we have of the Arbo character from Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventures. I introduce the little fella to the world and talk through the process of printing and refinement that the team at Toys for Bob (and with Swap Force, Vicarious Visions) work through.
It makes me wonder if one day we won’t buy these figures in the shops but simply be granted a code to enable us to print them ourselves. In fact, the thought of printing and then painting my own blank Skylanders brings back happy memories dry-brushing Warhammer and Dungeons & Dragons figures.
If you missed them, here are the previous episodes about this process of taking a toy design modeled in clay and bringing it to life as a real product.
