What does this mean to me and you? Well Hasbro is getting fanmade designs (you can apparently submit stuff if your a 3D modeler) and printing them. Which means that effectively we'll be able to get way better quality figures, both in more show accurate and overall design(although now that I look at some of the figures more closely they look kind of coarse and static-y. The prices vary wildly, with most figures being in the $30 to $100 price range.
Go over here if'n your interested, Superfanart.com. Supposedly they're looking to keep expanding they're lineup, so hopefully this could turn into something really cool.
