    I agree with you, TE-01 does look better in that pose, but MP-44 was posed differently.

    It acts as stop for the ankle rocker. You have to make sure that the foot is exactly in the 90° position when you rotate that part in and out or else you will cause further permanent damage.

    Nice pic!;) 
    By the way, your 44 backpacks are very nicely folded.
    Did you fix it?
    Well, 44 is an abdomen unlocked, so this game is an even draw...:p

    Welp got my replacement 44.

    Less paint imperfections than the last one and no bent head antennas!

    Though during transformation one of his front wheels broke off. I forgot to shift it down before folding it into the chest cavity.

    Welp....

    This one is staying in bot mode forever so, I guess it's alright? *shrugs*

    Unless you look at a unique angle, no idea that it's missing.

    Lots of fun work done to this guy & I'm happy to post a bunch of photos! Still a work in progress as I have yet to install LED headlights to his alt-mode. This was the most challenging mod I have faced to date, due to the complexity of this guy. More photos of this album on my FB page (click on the signature). Enjoy & have a blessed weekend my friends!

    unlock his waist rotation , and kick out the left leg same as you did with TE. It’s there . And he’ll pull off the pose just fine .
