    So this project started out as me trying to create a character for my comic.
    Two dinosaurs combine into a single, at least somewhat feminate, robot mode.

    However as the project went on, my bionicle parts did allow for the smaller design I envisioned, and two dinosaurs went to three. Now it is what you see below.

    Though one of the problems is weak joints, the major problem of the design is currently its instability, hence its leaning against the wall. The problem may have to do with the pelvic region. My question is should I work with it as it is, or totally revamp whole parts of the body?

    Dude this is cool :) 
    I say you should just try to rework what you have.

    Nice concept i like where this is going. Loose bionical joints are easily fixed by adding thin layers of superglue to the ball joint-not the socket,and make sure you dry and test fit between layers. Good luck.

    The problem with bionicle joints is the weakness is in the socket, not the ball joints.
    So right now I'm working to find a different way to fix it.
    Thanks for trying to help though.

    Go whichever way you feel but the point of adding the glue is not to strengthen but to stiffen Ive done my share of these customs using ball joints once the space between the ball and socket has been lessened through adding the glue the joints stiffen right up. Good luck
