Has anyone ever used the above to make tokens, counter or even to represent miniatures? I wanted to make some 1" sq tiles for a game I am making with pictures of NPCs etc on them. The question was, how hard is the plastic? are they bendable? How thick do they remain?

Cool idea! I've certainly made Shrinky Dinks before (though not for some time). They will become hard, not bendable, and roughly the thickness of two stacked U.S. pennies. Note that they don't always lay flat after shrinking (sometimes they curl a bit). That's the only potential downside I can see to using them for minis.
They will also shrink to about 5/8 of the starting diameter so if you want 1" squares you should start with about 1.6" squares before you shrink them.
