What happened to Pintsize?
« 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.

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