3D Print Your Own Skylanders Imaginators with the Skylanders Creator™ App

Skylanders Creator App Opening Screen

The biggest news ever in the world of Skylanders has been released today. With the new Skylanders™ Creator App players can create their very own fully playable 3D printed figures! In addition they can use the app to create full color, fully playable cards of their creations and full color t-shirts with their character printed on them. The cost may be a bit high ($49.99 for figure, $14.99 for card and $24.99 for t-shirt) so it is unlikely that you’ll 3D print all of your awesome creations. However, when you create something so utterly incredible in the Skylander Creator™ App you’re going to want to print at least one. The 3D printed figures say that they are limited quantities and I’m not sure exactly what that means. does it mean that at a certain point no one else can make 3D printed figures or is it that you can only make a certain number of the same figure, so that you aren’t out there trying to sell your creation. I don’t know but I do know that it is pretty cool and I definitely want to try it.

In addition to the information about the Skylanders Creator™ app there is news about another contest. There will be a Skylanders 3D Printed Contest. Starting Oct. 24, Portal Masters can win the opportunity to receive their custom 3D-printed Imaginator figure via a global Skylanders 3D-printed Imaginator contest. To participate, fans are encouraged to create an Imaginator in Skylanders Imaginators or using the Skylanders Creator app. Shared creations on social media channels using the dedicated #CreatorContest will be automatically entered to win. that is really cool and I’ll be participating for sure!

There is even more news below in the full press release plus some screen shots of the Skylanders Creator™ app and also a 3D printed figure and also a printed game card. Continue reading 3D Print Your Own Skylanders Imaginators with the Skylanders Creator™ App

Skylanders Imaginators and Middle School

Skylanders Imaginators Dr. Krankcase

Skylanders Imaginators is launching in less than a month and I am super excited about it. I have been a fan since the very first game and I am looking forward to being able to create my own Imaginators characters. I’m actually more excited to see what the kids come up with. Their imaginations are teeming with great ideas. So, I have gotten some news on both the game front and the TV show front. Yes, there is a Skylanders show launching October 28th on Netflix called Skylanders Academy and while I’m not thrilled that Justin Long is replacing my favorite voice actor, Josh Keaton as Spryo, I am looking forward to the show, and besides Josh is super great at being Shiro on Volton on Netflix anyway.

The other big news is that there is a Skylanders promotion between Skylanders Imaginators and the movie Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life.
