    ok i got both red and silver alternity convoys today, my red stands absolutly fine, my silver keeps tipping over. finally i did a comparison and noticed the heels on the red are longer which makes the gap on the roof where the heels peg into larger

    Well that's frustrating. Thanks for posting.

    Can you post side-by-side shots of them in alt. mode? I'm curious to see how the joint between the legs and roof compare.

    Ahh shit, is tipping over a common problem with the silver version? I just convinced myself to buy it but might hold off if this is a known issue.

    All 4 of mine are long tipped versions (2 red, 2 silver). It might be a running change. I got a set of each color from different places at dfferent times. When and where were yours from?
