CRUSH production mold ...

Erick Scarecrow of ESC Toys just sent these fresh pics from a secret location in China...
The PRODUCTION MOLDS of CRUSH.
These metal forms are filled with a vinyl powder, sealed, and spun quickly in a heating unit.
Centrifugal force causes the powder to stick to the sides of the molds, filling every nook and cranny.

CRUSH's Torso


Head and Feet

Once the vinyl is cooled, the molds are opened and the parts are ready for the next step.

We should have new pics soon!

looks cool! I dont get how it could possibly be all rusted if this is a new mold.

It's the heat that does that you moron!

hey now, be nice. Not everyone is up on oxidation.

(Here's where I'd normally go into a 15 minute long "claven-ism" about the whole process of iron forging -- but I've promised those around me that I'd try to cut back on the long monotonous stories.)

and its not like every single person in the entire world knows what the heck oxidation is anonymous.

Todd beat me to it! There was another part that I was going to disclose for this process but I guess we can wait for the next stage. Hey Doodlers! Erick Scarecrow is my designer name. My real name is.... classfied (O.O)

Awsome stuff, it's nice to see how toys are made. I'm actually interested in sculpting toys, and probably will get more into it after i take some scultping classes.
