Throughout my years as a pop culture journalist I’ve seen a lot of toys. I’ve had the pleasure of visiting some of the studios where these things are made and even the most cynical could not come out of those places without a new found respect for the hard work and artistry that goes into making them.
This short film highlights just some of the early process that goes into making your favourite action figure. There’s a lot more that goes into it after this from creation of the expensive steel moulds to paint to mass production to packaging design and more, each with their own challenges. But this film gives you an idea of the hard work that goes into the sculpting, and is worth a watch!
