    I just checked my brother's and MAN is it yellow. Problem is, it's not just the feet, every single chromed part has it pretty badly. I did a search and looked through the threads but didn't see a definitive answer. I don't want to go using something that may damage the chrome OR the plastic that I may get it on seeing as I'll have to get in some tight spots.

    Use Rubbing alcohol to get the tarnish off the after you are done with that use Clear nail polish on all the parts you just cleaned to keep them that way.

    Jewelry cleaning cloths from walmart will work. I don't think rubbing alcohol sounds like a good idea...

    Any Jewelry cleaner should do the trick.

    I have had megs since his release and 4 months ago he got the rust problem so I used Rubbing Alcohol and Clear Nail Polish and he looks good as new. His feet are metal it will cause no problem.

    I applied toothpaste on cotton and rubbed the parts, tarnish disappeared completely.
