Myself, and especially Dr Tooth have lamented at length about toys that are too pricey, or hard to find. Or Chinese sweat shops, etc. But soon you'll be able to print out any toy you want, fully painted indistinguishable from the store version. http://www.alternet.org/visions/155254/future_tech_how_3d_printing_will_change_the_world Already Paramont Studios is suing people who are posting the 3d files of action figures parts. Imagine that. Being able to print out ANY hard plastic item as long as you have the file for it. Heck, for Muppet collectors you could potentially(if custom figure 3d artists made the files) be able to download every Muppet character in figure form ever. The article also talks about the bad and potentially bizarre downside as well.
