Warner Bros. Consumer Products developing 3D printed toy "range" with Toybox!
Updated: Mar 12
THIS is quite intriguing. Obviously, this is built on the idea of 3D printers will be becoming more widely available in households in the US and the world...in the very near future. Whether that DOES happen is risk and a gamble. But if works out, WBCP will be ahead of the game-with a LOT of licensed IP to work with! From WBCP:
