You have this barrel chested torso with bulky arms coming off it... and skinny legs with narrow feet. Play around with the legs and feet. Wider feet... more width in the calf area... The 'new' version on the left is a great step in that direction. The legs are 'deep' enough; from front to back they range from 3 to 5 plates... it's the 'width' (left to right) that makes it look spindly. Adding the slotted piece on the top of the legs didn't help much; made them deeper but not wider. The feet is where it's really starting to help; the slope down and the slightly added width is what I'm talking about. See if you can go even wider to do that busty torso some justice =^.^=

No prob! I only give it if it's asked for so that's how to solicit more C&C from me at least =)

Maybe also try the trick with the 2x2 dishes you see on some chub feet. Really adds some bulk with out being too wide. I can see you have a hard constraint there between the two feet.... you can only go so wide before they interfere with each other.
Also don't be shy about ripping the whole foot off and going a completely new direction. It's not that what you have is bad... but rather you never know what else you may come up with if you just completely redo the foot. Maybe it will end up being pointless... or maybe you'll come up with a whole new design you never would have thought of if you kept re-working what you already had.
