Update 12/10: App now available on Google Play and iTunes.

The official unveiling of the Skylanders Creator app has today revealed that along with being able to create Imaginators within the app it will also let you order a playable 3D print of your Imaginator (for $50, quantities limited), a playable card with a picture of your Imaginator on ($15) or even a T-shirt with your Imaginator on it ($25, not playable).

The app (which launches on October 12th) will let you create an Imaginator from scratch or import one from the game by sound once the game is released in a couple of weeks. It is only possible to transfer to the app and not the other way around, the only way to use an Imaginator created in the app in the game is to buy the card or figure of it (or to meticulously recreate it in the game by hand). Getting more parts to use will require you to open daily chests but parts used in Imaginators transferred from the game will unlock automatically. FamilyGamerTV have an interview with Paul Reiche explaining it all.

The list of devices that are supported by the app according to the official website are: iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6, iPhone SE, iPhone 5, iPhone 5c, iPhone 4s, iPod touch 5th Gen, iPad Pro 12.9in, iPad Pro 9.7in, iPad Air 2, iPad 4th Gen, iPad 3rd Gen, iPad 2, iPad Mini 2, iPad Mini 1st Gen. Samsung Note III, Samsung Galaxy S6, Samsung Galaxy S5, Samsung Galaxy S4, Samsung Galaxy S3, Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime, Samsung Nexus, ASUS Nexus 7.

They will also be running a global contest to win a custom 3D-printed Imaginator, to enter you'll just need to share your design on social media using the #CreatorContest tag from October 24th.

And to get a taste of creating your own character there is a Character Creator on the official website that you can experiment with. There's currently only the Bazooker class, a small number of parts and no colour options so it is a little more limited than the app or game will be.

Interesting way to wring out more money... and kind of a waste of 3D printing technology if you ask me. But hey, if the kids like it, it's a good business strategy. *shrug*

Keep in kind you can also spend just 15 for the card, then use it as the base for a clay figure. If you have the skills, of course.

1/10, can't play as T-shirt

Ehh, just kidding. While it seems pretty damn cool, I don't think I'll be getting one. I don't have that much money to spend on them, and it's just not my thing. Still looks like fun, though.

I'd rather 3D print it myself than pay that much.
If wonder if you can download the models you make.

It would be awesome if you could cram the T-shirt onto the portal and it'd work.

I sure hope these is a lot options and customization features in this App. I would love to make my Scale Sona or other characters in the SKylanders Style.

This will be cool
