Toys are showing what the market for 3D printing will look like, with the announcement that 3D Systems are releasing a collection of Cubify toy robots designed specifically for printing on its Cube home 3D printer. The snap-together, poseable toys are made from colorful LEGO-like plastic and can be downloaded as ready-to-print files for 99 cents, or ordered directly from Cubify to be printed and delivered to your door for $4.99.

The robots have different features like ray-guns and rocket-packs, which are interchangeable, so you can swap their printed parts for lots of color and shape combinations. Cathy Lewis, vice president of global marketing for 3D Systems, said:

We are thrilled with these cute, playful new Cubify robots. Kids of all ages can collect the entire series as they create unique configurations to amaze their friends. Our excitement continues to build with each new toy and app we make available to our growing Cubify community.
