    I have a reissue G1 Skids and I'm having problem with on of his tires during the transformation.

    For step 4, you're supposed to turn the rear tires in. Well, one of them doesn't go in all the way so he stands lobsided. His right tire is fine, it's the left tire that doesn't go in all the way.

    Any suggestion?

    No suggestion, but you're not alone. My original 80s Skids and my reissue does the same thing. <shrugs>

    Rip that sucker apart and fix it! It sounds like a minor mold flaw that should be easy to fix.

    werd...I just went into the toyroom and tucked the little dude's wheels in, now he doesn't lean forward like he's getting ready to puke. Must admit, though, one of the tires doesn't go in as far as the other, but not so much to cause him to stand lopsided...mine is vintage, BTW.
