Replicants has develped techniques for injection molding affordable small runs...like 1000 figures or so...it looks like they are making injection molds with a bronze paperclay material, this would be soft and easily shaped by hand like putty, then sintered in a kiln to turn it into fused bronze suitable for small injection machines.  Mated with three d print technology for making the masters and it is a new world for toymakers.  Though I don't know, I suspect it is similar to how Warhansa, Chintoys, etc. are doing things...,
