If they don't, I bet it wouldn't be too hard for them to recreate one. Hell, I'd let them use mine if they needed it assuming we could work out something and could have some kind of a guarantee that I'd get mine back.
I think they can. I was looking at a few things that reminded me of a class I wanted to take. All they need is an original Pretender shell and a 3D scanner. This allows them to make a plastic/rubber mold from the scans, which is then used to make the mold that makes the shells.
It is something I was wishing that I could explain in better details. Because I think that if they can do this - Or make a digital mold if that is more cost effective... We could see the revival of "dead" pieces be reborn with little or no retooling.
