Title: What happened to Pintsize?
Post by: mnshaw on 08 Mar 2021, 21:53
Haven't seen him in a while. Meanwhile all of the other robots in the strip have been given humanoid bodies. Er, chassis. Wondering if Jeph has abandoned him.

Although I shudder to think of what kind of fratboy/chav/bro chassis might be appropriate for Pintsize's personality....

Pintsize simply hasn't fit much into any of the recent strips, largely because few of them feature Marten & crew in their apartment. I'm sure we'll see him again soon. As for the humanoid body, it would a) be a calamity, likely resulting in the immediate destruction of the apartment and b) be pretty out of character for Pintsize, who seems to be perfectly at home in his current body.

He has specifically stated that he prefers his current chassis because it allows him to continue his antics while seeming relatively harmless. It lets him get away with things a more humanoid body would not.

That is pintsize under the daftpunk helmet.

Specifically, Pintsize is remote-controlling the body using a deep dive VR rig, just like on that Ghost in the Shell animé~!

Haven't seen him in a while? 4467 (https://www.questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=4467) was like two weeks ago.

It looks like Pintsize has a humanoid form now.  At least for a single day.
I think a 'bratty teen boy' is a good choice for his personality.

I have a bad feeling about this.

Did I miss some strips? This was weird. Like we’re supposed to notice different eyes on a body we never saw before.

This is what is bugging me about it, though.

He has specifically stated that he prefers his current chassis because it allows him to continue his antics while seeming relatively harmless. It lets him get away with things a more humanoid body would not.

So I hope we see something convincing to explain this radical change of mind.

Pintsize made a radical change based on a passing whim without considering possible ramificaions.

TO ME, perfectly in character.

Maybe he's doing a 24 hour test drive or something like that.

And we are getting some discussion of it (eliciting that he does seem to be just trying it out, so far, and hasn't yet committed to one way or the other), so I'm happy with that.

And now that May has orifice management installed, I'm sure Pintsize has considered the possibilities of accessing those features.  <clears throat ahem>  And since that's more likely in a larger humanoid chassis... 

If all else fails, he and May can burn up a few cables just sharing Pintsizes collection of downloaded pr0n.  Who knows what May has recorded from her review of the aggressively terrible section at the store???

Unless May tries to use Pintsize as a goad to light a fire under Sven?!?

Pintsize would be the sort who would enjoy "Prolapse Monthly", so there's that.

I just had a horrible, horrible thought: what if Pintsize made connections with and started learning from Veronica?

If he's a robot, would that make him a domi-matrix?

Only if he changed sexes.  He remains stubbornly a he.

I just noticed Pintsize doing a guest appearance over on SomethingPositive.

Today is June 4, since I can't figure out how to get a URL for SomethingPositive that refers to the current day in a way that forms a stable link.

A fitting end.
