Tooling Master
The tooling master is the hardcopy that will be used as the pattern for cutting the production steel molds. This hardcopy would be in perfect condition without any noticeable flaws. Any small cavity, crack, or air pocket found on a hardcopy would be filled in with putty so that the resulting figure will be perfectly smooth. This perfection is required since any noticeable flaw will often be transferred to the steel mold which would then transfer to every single toy produced from that particular mold.
