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?

Looks, in a word, perfect.

My only concern would be that there's probably a lot of variation in the width of the dual-pegs, but you could probably get away with just "engaging" one in most cases...

That's why I kept both ends open so there can be more play with the leg components.

That's kind of what I'm designing for a port system on my PCC stuff. Good job.

Can't wait to see what you do. More variety, the better.

I agree. I like your "all purpose" approach that will enhance any figure. I'm going for a more figure specific set of upgrades, but there will be all purpose stuff too.

I dig the fists bud!

DONE. I got a full suite of stuff, now I just gotta figure out what to use them with.

PLEASE get the Energon-style parts up and running ASAP, I'm even more interested in them

Thanks! The PCC guys have a lot of potential but Hasbro failed to utilize it. When I first saw them, I automatically thought of a landcross type line of bots. That was my inspiration.

Can't wait to see what you are planning!
The Energon parts will be released once I have the prototypes in my hands and they work as intended.

I'll be patient, I'm subscribed to this thread, so I trust you'll let us know once they're available

One other product suggestion- While, as it stands, PCC figures are easy to come buy, so the "blue blocks" are easily scavenged from existing toys, it might be useful to have Male-Male or Male-Post options available so that if you want to add an non-PCC figure into a PCC-based-group you can do so without a ton of work.

Also, once you verify that the Energon designs work, PLEASE do some Energon-PCC "converters" I think mostly a Female-Energon/Female-PCC set up will be the most useful. ESPECIALLY something like your "PCC Leg Adapter" (The T-shaped one), so that you could attach a PCC-Scout as a leg to a Energon-torso. Something to accomplish the same with the arms would also be great.

Great stuff, keep it up!

Thanks again!. If you didn't notice, I've already hinted at merging the PCC and Energon lines together. I posted the image on the first post, but i'll put it here for you. Take a look at the left arm.
