    I can rarely get these two to stand up. Is there any fix to this? Are all Skids and Mudflap toys like this? They're both so back heavy...

    They can both stand. You just have to fiddle with them a bit. I can both of mine to stand pretty well.

    The only Deluxe one I have is Tuner Mudflap (I got it for free, shut up) and it stands fine when I have the gun arm posed forward.

    My HA twins stand fine, the Deluxe ones take some fiddling.

    On Skids, I rotate the ankle kibble down and it adds and extra heel.

    On Mudflap, I fiddle and fiddle and fiddle and fiddle and hope to God he stands up (it sucks for me because my Mudflap's thigh is getting loose).

    HA Skids stand just dandy, I assume HA M-Flap (as my group of buddies call him) stand just as well.

    Legends Skids and Mudflap suck too, so damn front heavy.

    I've never had problems getting the deluxe versions to stand. It's getting them back into vehicle mode that's impossible for me. I can never get everything to line back up properly.

    My Skids has a loose knee joint, so I have to stand him almost like he's trying to be chicken-legged, but my Mudflap is OK.

    They're actually two of my favorites from the ROTF line, I'd love to custom them each with matching arms and more "traditional" style heads.

    Deluxe Skids is hard to stand due to his small feet, but it is possible. I take the car door kibble in his lower legs and angle then down so they add extra support.

    Mudflap can stand fine for me. I can get him in really low crouches and wide-legged stances without an issue.

    I have no problems getting them to stand, Icecream skids with those tiny feet is another matter.
