So far very stable. The design is very simple using this part ("Technic, Pin Long with Friction Ridges Lengthwise") to connect the technic bricks
in the hip, knee and foot joints:

The frame can swivel up and down at the hip joints and it is just a question of finding the right point of balance for a given pose:

Image

I think it can take some considerable weight as well. Here i added a Ninjago spinner (a whopping 32g!) to the torso frame and
some bricks to the arms:

The joints are starting to fail by now. I will try the trick of putting little pieces of paper into them to create more friction.
Anyway, i am quite hungover today and managed only a small build:

A skullfucking Scythian laser shotgun and a large novasword. The gun was originally designed by The Shadowscythe and it is awesome. I like it a lot.

Very nice. I feel that it just needs a bit of greebling on the sides though.

Bought some HF 'kaiju' the other day. Pretty neat and easily repurposable:

Huh, I may have to get those for Eldritch Abominations because they have the same colour scheme as the Egypt beetles.
