    I've just got a TFC Skids. Like most people's mine is a bit lopsided. I think all the early TFCs were off a little bit. Anyway, my question is has anyone taken him apart and adjusted him? The problem seems to be in his wheelwells, but I don't have another G1 skids to compare. I thought I'd try to get some advice before I took the screwdriver and scalpal to him.

    Nobody has done this? He looks so wobbly.

    its because his wheels don't go all the way into his feet in robot mode.

    I guess you could cut away some plastic in the wheel well in the shape of whatever is getting snagged, although not big enough for the whole wheel mount to completely sink into his foot.

    I fixed my reissue Skids. All I did was use an x-acto to cut off what was blocking the wheels from going in all the way. Voila!
