    Hi there guys, this is my first time posting hope I'm doing it right..just wanted to share my kre-o custom Optimus Prime. He doesn't transform.. Maybe in the future I will break him down and figure out how to transform him. But for now I'll keep it simple.

    I was wondering if someone could help me? I'm new at doing things like this. I've been working on some of these kre-o sets and I want to paint some of the heads..does anyone no a good paint ?

    That is Badass Dude.

    If the head is one of the small rubber ones it won't hold paint and will always be super sticky. If it's not rubbery and plastic instead I would recommend Model Master paint. It's durable, but if you make a mistake it can be difficult to correct.

    You can actually paint the softer materials with acrylic paints without any drying problems. I use Testors Model Master Acryl acrylic on soft rubber type of materials, and they dry just fine.

    Great work on this it looks really cool.

    Any chance of a tutorial? Looks awesome mate. Have you tried putting a construct bot head on it, they have the same size ball sockets.

    sorry guys I've been busy at work..
    yeah that head bothers me to but don't know what to do. I really don't want to downsize his body. I have some of those construct bots but not a optimus prime, so I don't know if it's bigger than the kreo head. I'd love to try and mold a head but don't know which materials i can use. If you or anyone can help me I would really appreciate it...thanks guys!!


    I also have a jazz I want to post when I get the chance, and you can tell me what you think. Thanks again guys

    I agree, the entire project is super cool, but that head looks tiny in comparison to the rest of the body
