Perhaps I should try a Bionicle/Technic frame and adapt it with System surfaces for future buffing. The problem with Bionicle pieces is that they don't make very "straight" and precise joints

Yeah the problem is articulation comes at the cost of stablility. My mechs right now look nice and bulky but are restricted to the click joints limitations. One of the reasons I haven't made a bigger mech or a more detailed power suit, is because I don't like to build a too delicate creation. I don't have an answer for you yet about a better joint, but if I figure one out I'll definatly share it.

That is one of my three issues when trying to build big mechs, which are balance, flexibility and sturdiness. Normally when I try to compensate one of these aspects another is sacrificed, so Im in some sort of impasse here. Ill try some more stuff out, will also report in if anything relevant is achieved, thx for the help Roc

I usually don't make anything taller than a foot.

1 foot is actually pretty big already, I wasnt planning on making it much bigger than that
