Additional 3-D printables from the Uglydoll universe will follow, such as a bus to take the miniature Uglydoll characters on a summer vacation, four Uglydoll characters in dynamic stances, and 3-D printable environments for the Uglydolls to live in. All items will be released this summer on the MakerBot Digital Store.
