    Ah I see. Ok I'll do that. Thanks.

    Looking better. I still suggest that you swap the shoulder joint and the piece it's attached to in order to have the ball joint on the shoulder.

    As for the torso:



    Notice how the studs face forward and are layered with plated to keep things sturdy. I use a bracket piece with studs on the top and side to attached the head.

    (Y'know, looking at this, I think I may be able to replace those Technic parts in the thighs with those new ball joint parts...)

    Here's an updated pic. (My other camera broke, so I'm using my phone.)



    As you can see I updated the hands, and chest. Also, pics on what you're talking about would be great.

    Also I'm sending you a PM regarding the comic.

    No problem. It'l looking good for a first attempt.

    Yeah, a better pic next time would probably help.

    Yeah, I get what you're saying. Like I said, it's a WIP, so most likely it'll change. (After taking that picture I scrapped the hand, and added two antenna pieces to the head)

    Oh, and sorry for the blurry phone picture.

    Looks good so far.

    The Mixels have one serious flaw in their leg designs in that the part with the ball socket is the hip joint. If you put the part with the ball joint as the hip, it will give you better forward/backward articulation. You should also try to do this with the shoulder.

    Also, it looks like the body is built by bricks stacked on eachother right-side-up, correct? Unless you have sideways parts on the front or back to better support them, they'll probably fall apart. (Though at the small scale you're building in, it might be OK) I would suggest you re-work the design of the body to be flat plates facing forward with a sideways bracket joint to attach the head (I'll try to send pics of what I mean later).

    Also any good hand builds/tips would be helpful too.

    Okay, after buying a mixels set, I've got a good rough WIP going. Here's the pic:



    It only has one arm because I'm testing out arm configs before I move on. Any help on what arm and leg builds to use would be helpful.

    No problem! Anytime you're ready for another 'lesson', let me know!

    Sounds awesome.
