It's too bad affordable home-based 3D printers were not around 20 years ago, otherwise my Lego and action figure collection would have grown to massive proportions.

Excellent slide show Jennifer.  One great assets of "additive manufacturing" is the degree of detail that is possible with the process.  The facemask and hand represent what can be accomplished.   Definitely wish I had been there to witness the show.

I agree the toys are cool, Chuck. But what impressed me were the body parts they were making with 3D printing.

I'm with you on that, Chuck. There are a lot of "creepily real" limbs and the like being 3D printed these days...but in some ways it's good because they are helping people who need prosthetics! http://www.designnews.com/author.asp?section_id=1386&doc_id=263240

Cost would directly rely on the type of material used in printing. Is there any information on what type of materials can be used or not?

3D Printing Tipping Point

Is cost the primary tipping point question for 3D printing to reach the next level in terms of volume/growth?

It's easy to envision printing 3D toys becoming one area where 3D printing could realize the benefits of a very high volume application. Could be a factor in dramatic expansion from the current growth rate.

Aluminum pallets

Aluminum pallets sound like a good idea. Anyone who's ever had to work with woodn pallets in a factory knows about the nails that can scratch your arm and the wood splinters that can get caught in your hands.
