Same problem, but I thought everyone's Brawl couldn't stand properly. His feet are just too loose.

Perhaps Brawl's feet not being able to stand properly was apart of the design, and Gok's one is the one with the QC error

Heeey, about time the QC dice rolled in my favour considering all the other horrific crap I've endured (especially the Animated Blitzwing saga (T-T))

The first one I got had deformed wing pegs and stress marks on the canopy tabs as soon as I even tried to transform it. I went and exchanged/refunded this toy like five times -- each toy was defective, even after going to different stores in different locations. In the end I settled with a toy that still had the canopy stress marks, but no deformed wing pegs. Then I later got a TakaraTOMY Animated Blitzwing without the defects.

Default The Not-So Well-Mannered Brawl

I'm not sure if I can be bothered with returning to Amazon so they could return it to Hasbro and get back to me -- assuming that back and forth may take 6-8 weeks if I'm lucky.
For the record, my Brawl is the FOC green carded version (same as Goktimus posted on the previous page), and unlike the other single Combaticons, his joints are incredibly loose. The problem isn't so much his feet, but how he can barely keep his legs together.

And then there is the fact he feels smaller than the other members (sans Vortex), especially when compared to Swindle. Then again, Swindle is mostly hollow, thus gives the optical illusion he's huge.

Not too sure about the FOC G2 Brawl, as I am yet to open the set to verify.
