Cookie Monster, Frazzle, and Grover Come to Sesame Street Collection in MakerBot Digital Store
Back in May, we reported on a story in which MakerBot teamed with Seasme Street to bring licensed content to their Digital Store. In doing so, they kicked this partnership off, by releasing the digital 3D printable design file for Mr. Snuffleupagus. Since then, we have seen the release of some more popular, as well as not so popular characters, such as Honker, the Yip-Yips, the Two-Headed Monster, and Guy-Smiley. These 3D printable figurines were, and still are, all priced at $1.29 each.
Today, MakerBot announces three more additions to their Sesame Street character collection. In going with the theme of Halloween, they have released three of the more popular monsters from the brand. These include: Cookie Monster, Grover, and Frazzle, and all of them come with special props for the holiday. Cookie Monster comes with his famous cookies, while Grover includes his “Super Grover” costume, complete with a helmet and cape. As for Frazzle, he comes equipped with a jack-o-lantern, which has been carved to resemble his own face. The price of each of these newly released 3D printable monsters and their props, is set at only $1.99, and they can be downloaded as of today on the MakerBot Digital Store. If you wish to purchase all three of these new monsters, they can be had for a discounted price of $4.99 combined.
Cookie Monster’s design comes in 4 files and 9 printable pieces. The total print time is approximately six hours, and the final product will measure 115mm X 57mm X 112mm. Grover’s design comes in 14 printable pieces in 7 separate files, and will take about 9 hours to print out. His overall dimensions, when complete, are 64mm X 44mm X 131mm. Last but not least, Frazzle includes 11 pieces in 7 separate 3D printable files. He will take about 7 hours to print, and his final dimensions are 92mm X 48mm X 116mm.
These are the very first 3D printed designs that MakerBot has protected using ‘secure streaming functionality.’ It allows users to purchase the designs and then print the models directly onto their MakerBot Replicator 3D Printers without actually hosting the files locally.
Love Sesame Street, but don’t have access to a 3D printer? You can just stop by any one of the MakerBot Retail Stores and purchase an already printed version. Prices for these will vary depending on size.
“Sesame Street was our first licensed content partner on the MakerBot Digital Store, and today they are our first licensed content partner to take advantage of a new secure streaming option we have recently implemented for the MakerBot Digital Store,” explained Jenny Lawton, acting CEO of MakerBot. “This new functionality within the MakerBot Digital Store has been a request of content partners and allows licensed content and intellectual property to be brought to life in a brand-new 3D printed way.”
This isn’t the last we will see of Seasame Street characters in the MakerBot Digital Store. More will be coming in the future, so stay tuned. What do you think about these latest designs? Have you or will you be 3D printing any of them? Discuss in the Seseame Street Characters forum thread on 3DPB.com.
