    I've personally never seen one miss-assembled like that, but it wouldn't surprise me. I know TM2 Megatron had a miss-assembled piece from the factory that I don't think ever got corrected.

    Here is a post bask in 2012 that had the issue

    That is most definitely backwards. I think you can fix it by disassembling the lower legs.
