dumb question here, but does anybody know of any videos that exist about a factory tour of Playmates? i was interested in seeing the process and stages of how a figure gets made

I don't think they do tours.

Edit: I think the factory is actually in Hong Kong.

Edit: I do not think they have done any videos either. You can probably find out more about the figure making process by researching other toy lines and companies.

There's an old children's book that shows behind the scenes at a Hasbro factory (I think it was one of the US based ones)

It's probably not as exciting as you imagine. Just a bunch of overworked Chinese people putting together figures from little plastic bins. I don't know if Playmates even owns the factory, or if they just contract out to someone who makes more than just turtles toys.

looking at some of the messed up paint jobs etc.. they probably got under aged kids painting them etc.. that's why they never show it off..
