I wouldn't allowing 'buying the teeth' as Strikers, but I would allow for a Striker and Extra Mouth to be described as the same 'limb' weapon (so yes, in effect you are buying 'the teeth' as a Striker).

However if they are bought as an AA, then I wouldn't allow the free grapple in response to a Parry.



Now I really want to play in a Gamma World AtE game and play a Lobstrosity...

MA has the Limb limitation for Strikers, and that seems to be the closest RAW thing to a 'hand-mouth'.

You can certainly buy a head striker, but it doesn't seem that it would actually have the function of teeth (so you could use it for damage as a striker, or you could bite and worry with it, but not both at once).

I meant buying Extra Mouth with the 'limb' limitation to represent another limb being able to act as a mouth, but having a shared crippling pool and the like.

Extra mouth doesn't grant a limb, it just lets you place an extra mouth anywhere on your body. You could possibly do extra head with a limb limitation, though.
