    Got this guy in hopes of a substitute for Mirage/Dino. Good mold but the feet are giving me trouble. Is there any secret to balancing him??

    He really doesn't like it. The best I've been able to do is pushing his feet things all the way up and having him lean back.

    Yep, ignore the front part (raise it) and use the heels for balance. It stands OK after that and you can even pose him.

    Alternatively you can rotate it so the "heels" end up in the front, it looks a bit better that way.

    I have Sideswipe, but anyway, I just bend back his heel things, set them so that they touch the ground along with the wheels trying make him stand.

    Yeah. I really like the TFs I can just plop down and I don't have to worry about it falling.

    Never had much problem with him. Just have to find the right pose where he balances.

    There might be something off on yours, but his feet actually are designed to click into a particular position. Once there, they still have the spring action but he'll stand just fine.

    Yeah, once you figure it out you'll never have another problem with standing him up again.

    I have Sideswipe - sometimes I don't peg in the circular parts that fold down to the wheel feet, and let them separate a bit from the wheels. That makes it more stable.
