#656 Favourite Brick Friday: 48729b Mechanical claw 1L bar

This weeks favourite brick is the mechanical claw 1L bar, a piece you might not have thought would be that useful before seeing this post. However, it's unique shape, specifically it's 1L bar and clip means multiple can be connected to create some interesting shapes that no other piece can create.

Please note, the wings by thebrickccentric is classed as an illegal technique as the pieces are only loosely connected, but it was such an awesome build we chose to include it anyways.

Hi! I have have not previously used this site, but it's cool to featured on here. Only one thing I have to say: the connection is not loose! The pieces stay together and do not fall apart if you pick the creation up and handle it a bit. Sure, it's not as sturdy as, say, standard brick connections, but as far as "unconventional" or "illegal" methods go, the technique is relatively sturdy.
