    Ok. been wanting to share this for awhile. I'm not sure how many of you out there can find this type of chrome straw but it works perfectly with Optimus Prime.

    In case you're wondering where I got it from, it's from some chocolate bar who serves these straws together with their drinks.

    Asked. The manager told me that they ordered it from Israel. I was like..HuR??? Israel for those straws? Only realized that the shop is a franchisee from Israel. That explains. Intending to go back there again for a straw or 2. :)

    Here in the states I went to a near by HobbyLobby and in the model airplane material they have metal tubing and what not or various sizes that is what I am going to be using.

    They stuff I get is really durable yet soft enough to bend with a small amount of force. But if you dropped it or stepped on it the shape wouldn't be warped.

    And you have to have this tool that scores it around the circumference and you keep tightening it and scoring until it gives.

    I'm not sure what the brand name is but I will post pics as soon as I find it.

    they have that here also, but I prefer the chrome look. I just use the make up sticks I have from my tutorial. You can buy them at most stores.
