always test it on a small piece of the figure first though lol. most figures paint good but I prime anyhow just to make sure. I acutally use the red primer walmart used to carry as red paint since it coats better than paint and is a nice color.

I usually do. Especially if it's a softer cheap plastic like they seem to be using lately. It's less likely to eat the plastic than just a coat of paint. Mind you even primer can cause plastics to get sticky but I only had it happen a few times.
