    How many years will the rubber looking treads last before they deteriorate or snap? I want this but all the MP style ones with rubber tires or treads broke Down in a couple of years. Do you think these treads are rubber or soft plastic? At least soft plastic lasts a good amount of time.

    Id be careful with that, what kind of oil? Some oils actually break rubber down/make it mushy over time.

    Man...as gorgeous as this guy has been in the other pics, these ones without those blue ramps on him are my favorites. I want to display him with all of his stuff attached...but he looks so much better to me without those pieces on him.

    This guy was not on my radar this week as "I don't need a giant MP Overlord" but as a result of the pictures and videos people are posting its gone to "I need to figure out how and when to buy this guy and of course people are already reporting him selling out".

    Thanks to everyone for once again convincing me to spend another $200+ on a toy.

    The rubber treads give me pause. But so far the rest of my figures with rubbber treads are holding up okay. Granted they're never touched so they might be disintegrating and I don't even know it...

    Have you tried using this stuff??

    These might work as another alternative to Amour All which dries up the rubber and causes glare if you put on the dash of your car.

    You can try looking at automotive jobbers or on Amazon. Charles on RPA has done a FYI on this for his MP-10.
