A while back it seemed like it was announced that Hasbro was looking into 3D printing technology. We haven't really heard about it in a while, but maybe it could be used to fill some holes in collecting? Like a revival of Universe 1.0 but more self service? So I envision it looking like this: The bulk of what's offered on the service would be modular designs. Things like cars and jets with a set transformation scheme. They would also have different parts you could swap around to alter the asethetics of the bot and vehicle modes. There would then be a wide array of head and weapon options. You would go to the website, customize the design and the base colors, order it, and it would be printed and shipped to you. It would come as a sprued up pack that you assemble yourself, snap together and screws. (pins may be too hard in this system.) You could then paint and/or use decals to finish it off. It might be an interesting way to get a wide variety of characters who may not get toys otherwise.
