Just imagine if we all had a 3d figure printer

    I'm sure you've heard of this, if not...basically, there are now super high end printers that can print out highly detailed painted plastic action figures. Watch these if ya dont believe it:


    I mean look at this, this was literally created out of thin air:

    Now imagine if you had one of these at home. All you'd need were talented computer graphic designers to build custom 3d model maps in a program, and you could build and download virtually every Muppet figure imaginable.

    We all get excited, nitpick endlessly and talk about this or that figure. But what is a figure, but poly chloride vinyl and other chemicals made from oil assembled in cheap sweat shops overseas. Aw, but it is what they represent that gets us excited. If we had the ability to "download and print" I can only imagine how revolutionary that would be..you literally could have figures of any cartoon, show, comic or movie property in existence.

    "Just imagine if we all had a 3d figure printer". Nah, i don't wanna imagine it. My figure doesn't look that great in 3d.

    (BTW one of my all time favorite Boober quotes - "One...two...oh thank goodness he has all three dimensions!"

    Hmmm...now my mind is reeling...3d figures...Boober - Maybe Katy Perry should move on from her Sesame Workshop experience and duet with Boober! How fittingly appropriate would that be (or fittingly inappropriate as the case may be!)

    Re: Boober quote: Where is that quote from? I don't remember that, but I LOVE it!

    RE: Katy Perry and boober: New Line said they wanted the movie to be 'edgy"

    If we're referring to existing figures and prototypes... Then we can get the unreleased Sesame Street figures (even the bad fun4all figures), and while not Henson-related, we could get the unreleased Darkwing Duck series 2 figures!

    Gobo's Discovery episode. Boober thinks Gobo's been flattened by the Invisible Garboyle and has lots of great lines but that one's the best.
