    You could turn the feet backwards, or use his huge arm blades to balance.

    It's mostly in the feet. You can angle the heels backwards.

    Mine rests on the wheels and uses his heel on one foot and his toe on the other.

    Defiantly angle the heels, I'm using him in my photocomic and he's actually a pretty good figure by my standards.

    Turn the heel pieces to the side and rotate them all the way down.

    SideSWIPE not SideWAYS.

    Personally, what I do is just get him in the pose I want, then fiddle with the heel and toe alignments until he's stable. Takes a bit of work, but I can get him into some pretty cool poses and keep him stable.

    I have his left foot forward (this foot is flat) and his right foot back (this foot is angled). I used the piece that covers the right foots tire to get him to stay in an action like pose. Just had to pull out that tire cover piece a little so that the right leg is balanced by his foot and that tire cover. Hope this makes sense. If not I can try to grab a pic for you.

    I didnt find it that hard actually. (not to sound like a dbag) I just kinda played with his feet and stood him up. Didnt take long either.
