The KO were recent releases. Your IH might be the same as mine, 2015 release so the oxidation has already started. Maybe I should get a KO for spare parts? :HEADHURTS:

Just compared Takara UM and the 1st ed MP-10, chrome still bright, shiny with no corrosion (blackening of parts)

Both are made in Vietnam. Just like IH. Yet IH ver.1 has the worst corrosion.

Of the comparison? I only have ver 1. Ver 2 was recently released so no corrosion I assume.

Cobotron confirmed the corrosion in his ver. 1. Am I correct to assume that by your post recently transforming IH you got the latest release?

My UM and Convoy have no rust.

I got the first release. It wasn't a first transformation, I like to transform them from time to time. Applied another layer of Pledge just in case.

Crappy day was crappy so went to my rainy day pile. Pulled out Ironhide and opened him up.

Holy hell this figure is gorgeous! Perfect red, great accessories and one of the most satisfying transformations ever! So good that I went back to the pile and got out Ratchet who looks just that little bit better!

I LOVE both of these figures. Perfect looks, perfect transformation. Bliss!

I hate to rain on your parade but just as I love this awesome mold/design/feat of engineering, watch out for the chrome fading easily. :(

He's been on the pile since release! All that remains in the pile now is Hotrod and FansToys Stomp (Sludge). :)

They are both great but if the chrome does fade, I can probably airbrush a decent chrome silver over if again.

Having issues with Hotrodimus chrome fade (I haven't ever handle the pipes on his forearms and just had a total of 2x transformation mileage. Same can be said with the hidden exhaust chromed pipes in in backpack.

Recently discovered this -- MP Ironhide and Ratchet have an extra neck-joint that allows you to display them from Sunbow-type of angles.

This is what it looks like from above.
