ah lord

The only reason I've shied aways from this release is the news that apparently the rubber parts and the arm parts DISINTEGRATE over time one of the guys over at robot japan had this happen to his reactive armor Ingram and it was not pretty but he did do a fantastic job making replacement armor out of an old glove

That was me, and yeah, while

That was me, and yeah, while I absolutely ADORE my CM's Ingrams (some of the better modern gokins, I feel), the Jacket Armor version gave me fits with the rubber sleeving. It dried and cracked after, oh, maybe 6-8 months of owning the figure and having it on my shelf. Fortunately it's got a nice leather-clad look now :D

All of the Ingrams are worth getting, but the rubber sleeving is something worth being wary of with this particular release.

I am going to keep an eye

I am going to keep an eye on this one and update the review if it deteriorates over the months. I wonder who else experienced this. I'm sure this example sat on a shelf for months at warehouses etc and its fine. It may just be a matter of being displayed and room temps, humidity, playtime and whatnot that determines rubber life. Even if it happens, Quinjester has an easy fix that even looks better.
