    I've been encountering some odd problems lately with my TF's. I recently got the DoTM Twins, and I've complained about how they can't stand. Until I discovered they have heelspurs. I just find it odd how I can miss them.

    Does anyone else miss heelspurs?

    Man, I can't recall the figure at the moment but I had just stumbled across one that I had in my collection and was unaware he had heel spurs up until then.

    G1 Predacon Headstrong. Had the plastic version as a kid and it stood fine. Got the reissue in '04 with the diecast, and it kept falling over. I hated the metal cause it made him too back heavy. Found out about the heel spur and felt like a heel.

    Got a loose complete alt. Mirage without instructions, managed to fully transform him but still couldn't figure out why he kept falling over.

    That's when I noticed the blue plastic spurs still tucked inside his feet. Flipped them out, no more falling over.

    I saw this thread, then wondered if I had missed any. Then I remembered that my Alt Sideswipe and Sunstreaker have serious issues staying upright. I just checked them, and they totally have them. xD That explains soooo much.

    I didn't realise until last year BB Optimus' bumper slides out to give him better heels.
