    How did you get Sideswipe to stand? I was talking pics of the TFCON customs, and someone painted ROTF Sideswipe as tracks. But the stupid feet design are terrible. It was a balancing act that was just really annoying.

    If you push the big silver pieces on the front of the wheels almost all the way up, the small silver pieces on the rear of the wheels can act as heels.

    It's a bit fiddly but it works.

    I agree it is annoying but it's screen accurate as he rolls on his wheels in the movie, as if he's on rollerskates.

    lame. rollerskates or even inline skates have more than one wheel on each foot for balance while standing.
