I laughed at the Chibi figure destruction tests.
For a living I work as an Injection Molding Process Technician. You said the figure was made of PVC. If you really want to destroy it, try melting it with an acetal copolymer such as Delrin, or Celcon. I guarantee you will enjoy the ensuing chemical reaction! Wear saftey goggles and stand back. Make sure there is adequate ventilation as well. Have fun!!!!!
Acetal melts somewhere around 200 degress C.
Acetal copolymer, Delrin, Celcon... Nope, none of those in our lab. They don't sell those at the grocery store, do they?
