I’ll be the first to admit, I really dislike the FatCap design. I never understood the appeal of a Dunny body with a random giant spray-can top tossed on for the head, and considering how few FatCaps we’ve seen and how long they sit on shelves, I feel like Kidrobot themselves even wonder why they created such an oddity. Then along came Kronk. Kronk here actually got me to like a platform that I dislike with his Totem design, which features amazing wings instead of arms, great usage of the odd head, and some of his signatures such as the band-aid motif. I also adore the color scheme of purples and blues and I feel the same about this overall piece as the recent Lovebirds, which use color amazingly well and have a very sleek feel.
Sadly, though, the love ends there and I have some of the same issues that I had with the Atropa Dunny, namely, the box looks better than the actual figure in both instances. I feel like Kidrobot is just trying to get pieces out as quickly as possible and as a result we got things such as the flat finish on Atropa and the slightly-off sculpted wings here that are completely different in tone than the rest of the piece. That being said, if you want one of these 6″ FatCaps for yourself, they’ll be available starting on May 10th for $75 and will be a run of 900 available at all Kidrobot retailers. As much as I like the design work, I just have to pass on this as it still looks odd on a FatCap, but what do you think? Let us know in the comments below!
