    Hi, I'm wondering if anybody could inform me of what type of plastic the Armada Mini-Cons are made of, and what type of paint works best on them.

    Thanks

    Polyvinylchloride of one sort or another is the standard for toys.

    Acrylics work well. Wash the toys with warm water first and dry them thoroughly to remove any mold-release oils that may remain. Clearcoat is a good idea too, to keep the paint from scraping off easily.

    Krylon Fusion spray paint seems to hold up nicely, too. In fact, it's designed to bond directly with the plastic.
