    So sorry if this has been mentioned before, did a rough search, but i just now noticed that the big curved 'heels' on primus actually fold in. o_0

    I didn't see this anywhere in most galleries or box art. Really freaked me out cause I though I broke him.

    Anyway just sharing. ^_^

    Whoa, I didn't know that either. I thought it looked like it movied when I first had him in my hands, but I never put too much pressure on it, in case it would break.

    He stands fine for me in just about every pose i put him in if I also turn his 'toes' inward. ;)

    Didn't realize they did that either.

    Judging from they way they seem to work, I'm thinking that 'feature' is there to help avoid breakage if the toy was dropped, as opposed to being part of the actual transformation.

    That's exactly what I thought when I tried this last night. They're really quite hard to move, and don't seem to make very good heels when folded in. It looks like they'll fold back quite easily the moment that Primus' full weight is applied to them. I didn't actually try this though, as I could only get one to move.

    Fold the "toes" towards each other, and fold the heels up. If you turn the legs outwards at the knees (like a battle stance) his weight will be shifted forward, instead of backward. He stands just fine.
