Here's another use for zCorp-printed heads on bodies: usually they're bobbleheads, but in this case for £80 you get a printed version of your own head, plus a basic plastic superhero doll, a tube of superglue and a set of instructions.
Yep, you have to yank off the doll head yourself then glue on the new one...!?
While I'm all for DIY and making, this is a little expensive for what you get: the difference in texture and resolution of the ABS injection moulded body and the sandstone-like zCorp print is going to be weird (you can tell I'm working in this stuff hey :-)), but worse, fragile too: you can't play with the end result.
Still, who's to say what value personalisation? It's such a rare thing to be able to offer, there's not exactly a wealth of comparative data. We're certainly going to be finding out pretty soon with MAKIES; our action dolls will be in the same ballpark price range but they use probably 20 times the amount of material, will be playable with, and don't involve superglue, (with luck)...
