    Exactly what the title states. the only position I can get him to stand in is straight up. Please help. He has no heels!

    He is back heavy but can be posed with his mechtech weapon it provides a nice counter weight for the back pack.

    I like to leave the backpack hanging down so the wheels look like they are on his thighs, like in the movie. Its not the way the instructions say to transform him, but it looks better, and gives him much better stability.

    ^ That's what I do when I want to pose Prime in anything else besides a standing position. It lowers his center of gravity and makes him easier to balance.

    Thanks so much for your insightful yet inspiring answer to a serious question. You know, I might just go stand him on his feet instead of his head now that you have opened my eyes to the purpose of those flat things on the bottom of his legs. People like you are the ones who make this board unpleasant at times. Keep your negative comments to yourself please!

    Don't have him standing straight-legged, let the legs angle out. I pose him like he stands in the promo shots, I guess that's how I'd describe it.

    I just load him down with weapons and have him in an arms widespread stance with a gun in each hand, weapon on each forearm, and Ramjet's missiles on his shoulders.
