    so is there any type of "snap" when fitted in? or is it just a friction/tight fit?

    It has one hell of a snap, they are very similar to the Lego technic snapfit pieces, but they are solid and will only rotate within the channel with force. It really takes some elbow grease to seperate the pieces. They are larger than the Lego pieces, but almost the same size as Neo Shifter pieces.

    If I can throw some comparison pictures together I will post them if people want me to.

    so technically, the rotation can hold a certain weight. how is the plastic? is it ABS or similar to TF plastic? I ask cause sometimes that friction will give out after time, which is where ratcheting joints are a must.

    any chance you can take 1 more pic next to a quarter or coin so we can get a good idea of the scale?

    thanks for the info.
