Marx Plastic

how to make toy soldiers?

i was wondering what would be involved in making toy soldiers i wanted to make plastic ones so idk if resin would work i also did not know if i could buy molds for making theses thanks for all your help. also i don't want to make metal soldiers

When you say toy soldiers, are you taking about action figures or figures like the old Marx plastic army men?

If your wanting to make simple open piece army men like marx used to make, you simply need to have a figure, be it bought from some where or sculpted by you. With that figure you make a two piece mold. For a beginner I'd suggest using a RTV mold, like the kind that can be found at Miro-mark.com. Once the mold is complete you can then cast mutable copies of the soldier.

If your wanting to make action figures with movable joints, it gets more complicated. Each piece that moves needs to be cast by itself. How the figure goes together needs to be looked at as well are the joints going to be rivets or with the pieces interlock someway else. After all the pieces are cast the figure then needs to be assembled. The Real American Hero GI Joes from the 1980s to 1994 had 16 cast pieces of plastic, one O ring, two rivets, a metal bar/hook, and three metal screws holding the figure together.
