Metal Molder Die-Cast FactorySam's Toybox Homepage

I've started selling some of my toys & collectibles.
See my eBay Store for current listings. Thanks, Sam

Reminiscent of toys of the late 60's, Toymax does it again with the Metal Molder Die-Cast Factory. Small vials of pre-measured metal "shot" are melted and poured into molds to make such things as motorcycles, wizards, robots, and jewelry. The back of the boxes show numerous extra molds that can be purchased separately though I don't believe they ever sold any of these. To the best of my knowledge my collection below includes every Metal Molder kit ever sold. On the Precious Metals side, they did sell at least seven accessory kits and I've included placeholders for them until I get them all. I've scanned the Metal Molder Instructions (1.6MB pdf) which also apply to Precious Metals.

This is the jewelry making Precious Metals kit. Unlike the metal molder I have only seen this kit packaged in one way. Originally it came with four molds: Star & Moon, Butterfly & Smile pendants, Bug & Jewel Holder, and Broken Heart Pendants. In later kits, the star/moon mold was replaced with a Heart Pendant & Sun. Item 80071 dated 1997.

The Space Ships kit included two molds, four vials of metal shot, four plastic stands, and ten gems. Item 80104 dated 1996. Note that the ship on the right is the hardest to get to fill the mold and as can see by both of these examples, I did not achieve that.

The Classic Chevys kit included two molds, four vials of metal shot, four plastic chassis, and ten gems. Item 80111 dated 1997. Originally this was going to be a Camaros set and the picture on the box shows two Camaros. When it went into production, one of the cars was actually a Corvette convertible (mold on left) so the name of the kit was changed.
