    Finally picked up a G1 Tracks and he has the "leg problem". They won't remain extended in bot mode, and spring away from the car body in alt mode.

    I've found a few fix suggestions and even a YouTube video, but I haven't gotten a really good look at how the offending metal clip should be re-seated inside his leg.

    Anyone know what I'm talking about?

    i've had this problem with three of them, the piece should lay flat inside the leg, if it is folded,you might get lucky bending it back

    On some Tracks I've had, eventually I have just taken the metal part out completely. It's not ideal but at least it holds both modes.

    Interestingly this has only ever happened to the Transformers Tracks I have had, vintage G1 and red MB Tracks, but never to the Diaclone Corvettes I've had.

    All the best
