    Would you guys glue a transforming Kre-O or Lego Transformers once you're happy with it to make it rock solid?

    Well, I built this huge transforming Kre-O Prime (based on EchoTransformer's design)and since I don't plan to ever rebuild it, I wanted to glue the key pieces that tend to separate during transformation/manipulation to make it more playable.

    You got a picture of this thing by any chance? Sounds cool.

    If you want to preserve your pieces, then go ahead and glue the parts in question. The only thing you should concern yourself with is the type of glue. Some brands will dry with a tacky residue and/or they won't react well with the plastic and will cause them to take on a "melted" appearance. Basically, you want a glue that's strong, but one that will dry clean and clear. Also, I would suggest using one with a brush applicator.

    That's what I ended up doing (just some key parts) and now my Prime is 100% playable. No more components that break or parts that fly across the room!
