Before the game starts, can the robots lean on one another? For example, a robot's claw rests upon the create's main body.

For an official ruling on game rules questions, you should use the FAQs located in the Botball Tools area of the Team Home Base.

To field this question though, I would say yes that is completely acceptable

I certainly hope it's legal, because we've done that pretty much every year, including this year. But as Logan said, you should use the Home Base for an official answer.
