Nice work! I've got some PCC related upgrade stuff myself. Regarding the male to male connectors, to shorten them perhaps an "over-under" configuration might help.

Imagine a cinderblock:



I hope you continue your PCC upgrade work. mine will be more labor intensive as I'm not a fan of Shapeways "finish". (Although I realize they are intended for prototyping)

I will be aiming to inject mold ABS parts for my stuff.

Pretty cool! You should totally make some fists to plug onto those Pcc ports.

Thought about the over-under configuration but I felt it would make the arms too high or too low. If you try messing around with the configurations, you can make the arms a little closer to the center bot. The pics below should show you what I mean.

Thanks! Working on the hands today.



Here is a new configuration that I came up with.

Was just thinking, could we break up the silhouette of those pieces by making them more kneepad-like and/or shoulder-pad-like? The clean, blocky appearance seemed a bit strong right now I keep having the impression they are walking on stilts. You know what I mean?

I could really use these for my custom PCC Liokaiser.

I'd design them to keep the cost down. I'll look into making "sets" for the shoulders and knees.

I have uploaded some hands and guns to go along with the PCC ports if you need them.

There are few new items for sale in my store:
PCC Fists
PCC Guns
PCC Fist & Gun combo pack.

The guns and fist combine so when you have your bot in either standard robot mode or in alt mode, there will be a place to store them.

Hmmmm.I don't mind shoulders being a bit high in relation to the head, gives a sense of mass, largeness, and power. Alternatively the over-under config could easily be rotated to be a front-back, may look better anyhow. Quite a few of the Commander modes have the shoulders a tad bit back in relation to the head.

I'll have to ask the commissioner if he would prefer these.

Pretty cool.

Smolder and the jet make pretty darn good legs like that. Only gripe with Smolder is that it looks off-center, but can't be helped I suppose unless you made a 2-to-1 adapter I suppose.

Another thing you should try is also an adapter that is one female, and the other a hand.

Either way... this really is what PCC should've been. Not the stupid drones.

Once my other projects are done, I'll take a stab at creating an alternate shoulder port and see if this is feasible.

I think i've come up with a way to solve the off center issue. I've uploaded the design on my site and put it up for sale.
The way the new leg port would work is that the center bot would slide his PCC leg port into the center of the connector. The 2 opening on the sides are for the leg guys to slide male connectors onto both ends.

How does this look?
