South Park™ Partners with Source3 to Launch 3D Printed Consumer Products
First ever products for the storied franchise using this technology
New York – August 23, 2016 – Source3™, the world’s first platform for end-to-end management of intellectual property in user-generated content (UGC), has officially launched the first set of 3D printed South Park characters celebrating the 20th season of the series, via Amazon and Shapeways.
The South Park figure collection features fan favorite characters, side characters and characters previously unavailable to diehard fans via traditional licensing and manufacturing. The collector-inspired line incorporates full-color 3D prints ranging in scale and styling. The collection will evolve over the three-year partnership and feature year-round introductions of new and old characters.
“We are thrilled to work with South Park, one of the deepest and most incredible portfolio of characters and moments ever created. Using 3D printing and on-demand production, we can create an evolving line of character collectibles previously unavailable to fans,” says Scott Sellwood Head of Partnerships at Source3.
South Park fans can find the collector set of four boys for sale here and here. South Park creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker have hand signed a limited number of Stan, Kyle, Cartman and Kenny figurines. Consumers that purchase the full set will have the opportunity to receive an autographed set. You can find more details about the contest at each marketplace*.
