    Just wondering b/c I keep thinking they'll eventually be battery leakage. :cry 

    I don't want my MPC being tarnished becasue of that.

    Well? Did anyone take the batteries out of their MPC/20TH OP?

    Yeah, he's right. They won't leak. May as well put them back in before you lose them.

    I beg to differ. The two LR-44 button cells in my G2 Prime's voice box caused severe corrosion inside. Since then, I remove batteries from my TFs when they go in storage for extended periods of time.

    I stand corrected. I've never heard of such a thing.

    I think if you have them out on display or on regular shelves at room temp etc.. I think your fine, but I would defiantly consider following Hook’s advice if you plan on storing them away somewhere, especially if its long term.

    The sound box isn't in the figure, it's a separate block, so no. The button cells in my G2 Road Rocket leaked pretty badly too, but it wasn't so bad, since the wire had since been severed, anyways...
