    Are there ANY g1 Autobot cars with leg articulation? Because as far as I can tell, they look like bricks from the waist down.

    Classics pay homage to G1 if that's any good. Some customisers like to articulate the original figures, but they are one offs. G1 are a bit clunky...a sign of their times.

    Yep. I wasn't disappointed as a kid that most didn't have lower articulation. As long as they could raise their gun arm to shoot another toy I was happy.

    Depends what the OP counts as a G1 Autobot car as G1 Blurr did have knees that could bend.

    Gears and Windcharger have knee articulation as part of their transformation. Beachcomber and Overdrive too. That's really it, pre-movie.

    ^ I was so gonna mention that in my post but then forgot because I went to make sure I was right about Blurr's knees. :p 
    G1 Bumblebee and similar molds could also slide a leg up so they kinda looked like they were mid-run or you could 'pose' them with one foot up on a rock.

    It's true, you really have to get creative if you want any kind of action pose on the vintage toys :lol

    But that was half the fun back then. :) 
    I don't think it counts since he's not a car, otherwise I'd have said it myself. And the white Magnus too.
