It can, but it definitely shows it's limits as it shows just how pronounced the longer legs are. This is why a front foot able to swivel forward and a heel able to pivot backwards would've helped since it would make crouching more feasible. That's what helped Classics Prime make crouch more naturally. You might be better off bending both knees as far as possible, then having 1 leg pivoted back and outwards with the toe joint of that leg folded back, while keeping the front leg slightly downwards from the hip with the front toe pivoted downwards a bit to rest on. It does crouch better than SIEGE and in some way, more than Classics Prime. You can have it crouched without the legs angled out from the hips as well(and folding the toe joint flat for the back leg). It makes the long legs obvious though. YMMV. Posed it while on break from today and transformed it. I'm warming up to it, I'm surprised it took us this long to get a mainline G1 cab that is articulated and transforms without having a compromised cab mode(anyone remember Classics deluxe Prime and Robotmasters Prime?). My score for this still remains the same though. Just a few changes before final production could've made this substantially better.
