  In miami, a number of years ago I found a plastics supplier who would do
vacuum forming for $5 plus the cost of the material.  The smallest it could
do was 4' square.

  Also, you might consider checking into sign making companies, because they
commonly use vacuum formers to make plastic lettering. 

  There was even a toy out, designed to make bodies for hotwheel type cars.
I don't know if it still being made, or what the name was.  But, I imagine
it could be used to make eyes up to a hotwheel car size.
