Skylanders Imaginators Will Let You 3D Print Your Own Custom Characters To Use In-Game

If there isn't a character for you in the vast cast of Skylanders Imaginators, don't worry: the newest gimmick the game is introducing will let you create and make your own custom figures to use in game.

Using a new mobile app that's being rolled out ahead of the game's release, you can design and create your own character and have it transferred in-game, or you can then have it printed and shipped to your address, and the figure will have full functionality in-game. This process will set you back $49.99.

If that isn't enough for you, you can even create trading cards and t-shirts featuring your custom character. The trading card will set you back $14.99 while the t-shirts cost $24.99.

Activision has stated:

“The Skylanders Creator app will feature Timed Imaginite Chests that give users new creation parts for their Imaginators at certain times during the day, daily Sensei Chests featuring special parts unique to that Skylander, a collection menu where players can access all of their created Imaginators, called My Imaginators’ Creation Gallery, and the ability to share created characters with fans around the world."

Skylanders Imaginators will release on October 14th for PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and Wii U.

  • This will flop so hard
  • the sad think is that there are poeple out there that will pay 50 dollars or euros to 3d print this crap
  • thought i needed a 3d printer for a sec.
  • @2 Don't worry, rich parents will buy this to spoil their kids.
  • Man... You guys are d-bags. I'd never buy this, but someone might. Why does it matter if someone buys this to bring themselves enjoyment over Call of Duty 400?
  • I actually really like the idea for the figure (although I don't play the game and won't use it myself, more power to those who want it) but can someone explain $15 for a trading card to me?
  • @2 My son is 7 years old and has been playing these games since the start. It would be awesome to be able to get him his own "custom" figure. $50 for a unique character seems decent to me.
