Projecting a Non-LCD Image?

Hey guys- a little different question here- and I just want to ask about the THEORY of this...

Im working on a special effects project. Let's say I setup a projector, lens, etc etc but instead of using an LCD for the image- let's say I use a plastic toy of some sort- say an Army Man. Now, provided that the Army Man is lit from the FRONT and he also FACES the front (and the lens)- would the image of the Army man be projected up on the wall? I'm not familiar with how lens' work, but just checking it out. Provided that you have a large enough lens (and smally enough army man to fit it)- in theory- can you project the image of something like this? Again, assuming the lighting is setup right to light up the front, and not the back. How, or can, this work?
Thanks
