    I've read through a lot of the tutorials here, but before I put paint to plastic, I'm wondering what people use to customize Robot Heroes?

    I see a lot of folks talking about latex on regular Transformers, but the RH are a different kind of material. Will the latex work ok on them?

    Would a clear coat after the fact be ok?

    I have painted a few Robot Heroes and I just use some acrylic paints and then a matte or gloss coat over it.

    Awesome, thanks.

    With the upcoming repacks, I'm going to try my hand at this!

    I've found that many glosses don't dry right on them, though, and collect dirt and dust. So be careful.
