    think the reissue will suffer from the same things the original did?? i never bought one and would love to own it if its clear of problems.

    sorry if this was talked about elsewhere.

    i just got mine, ill inspect it and get back to you. i think the older versions had it straight from the box. if not, how long did it take the tarnish to develop?

    It's not rust, it's tarnish. And it comes right off with some metal polish and a cloth. And it didn't come that way out of the box, it happens when it oxidizes.

    Short answer: quit being a weenie and buy MP Megs.

    Probably. But too soon to know for sure.

    I have the original release and it developed tarnish as well after a few years. Still haven't gotten around to actually fixing it.

    Consider Megatron is some million years old, the "rust" suits him.
    That said, I haven't noticed any on mine.
