I really, really like the idea of this, but there's something I'm not clear on.
Once the plastic has melted onto the figure and pressed into crevices and what-not... what do you do then? I ask because I imagine the shape of what you've made - while perfect on the inside of the plastic - would be blobby and overly smooth on the outside. I might be missing an obvious step, but it seems like this is more of mold-making technique than an item-making technique?
I'm certainly not criticizing, I'm just a bit lost.

Your right, you can make mold with it, very accurate molds as well, The exterior of the form DOES lose a little of the detail, but not much, it depends on the thickness of plastic used. If you use thin stuff (not the joe carton stuff) you can get excellent exterior results. The thick stuff works great for the visors, and casts.
It really just takes a few times to see how it works for yourself. I would recommend just getting a few different gauges of plastic, and try a few times on different things.
I hope I answered your question..let me know if I can help further...
