I always just kinda twisted the calves sideways, bent them at the knees, then crammed 'em up in the back and tried to make them look inconspicuous. I think you're *supposed* to try and pretend that they're actually some of his crab legs, but that's a pretty clear lost cause.

Pay attention to the actually interesting points on his transformation! Like how you push his head down to become his wittle crab mouth!

Funny you should mention that mate, I've had the guy more than a decade and I *only just noticed that* today. So cute! o..o *crabface*

But he's got six legs anyway, so it can't be that... right? Crabs have six legs and two arms? Maybe I'll just let them stick out the back like organic rocket boosters. Woooosh!

Realizing that I'm no expert on fiddler crab anatomy, I turned to my good friend Google Images, and...they've actually got eight legs. So there you go: Razorclaw just needs to start working the weights with his other six legs and even them out, or he'll just keep lookin' funny.

Haha Rockbuster is a bro? Fantastic. Just develop two of your limbs, the rest of you will catch up naturally!

Now I finally know how to transform him properly. Sometimes I wish the packaging guys would communicate more with the design guys, there's way too many "hidden moves" in TF toys!

Crabs have 10 limbs in total, 2 claw arms and 8 legs. I think Prowl said that already, but I'm not sure.

That being said, crabs, like lobsters, have little swimmy legs called pleopods behind their real legs (lobsters have them on the underside of their tails), and I was always under the impression that Razorclaw's robot legs were supposed to be tucked behind him with the feet closed to represent the pleopods, or maybe I'm just weird.

THE BEASTS CALL HIM BROTHER, THE BEAR WHO MAKES HONEYYY-- URSUS!

You with the zoological save once again. Yes, I'm going with oversized(?) pleopods, I think. There was I thinking he was just another inaccurately designed BW toy, and after I defended BW Iguanus' name making sense for a frilled dragon! Now I can display him in crab mode with pride.
