Deadlock B and C Cores
So I tested out some other options with a friction pin connection, for that nice balance between durability and easy posability, and came up with the Deadlock B and C.
Here are cores of the designs. The Deadlock B is a two-wide torso, and adds some height, though I can minimize that a bit by raking the torso further forward, and using low-height feet. The Deadlock C goes to a three-wide torso instead, but has a bit more leeway with height. The wider torso means a different arm design, closer to the original Lockon. Gotta say, I’m sure I’m not the first person to think of sticking an Exo-force claw into the back of a headlight brick, but that is fast becoming one of my favorite connections for frame-building
