TVM has posted up this teaser image of what appears to be some expanding of the CrappyCat line. It looks like this one uses the Flunk Monkey platform. Could it be a part of a CrappyCat Series 2? I guess we should find out in the near future.
Yo Ho! CrappyCat is drunk, down on his luck, and stuck between “who knows” and “who cares.” His life used to be amazing. Red carpet fashion shows, High tea at noon, picnics in the park with his closest friends, but then something changed. It is weird, he can’t quite remember, but the life he loved was ripped from him, and he just can’t quite put the pieces together again. His only friend now is the bottle and … well, just the bottle.
All of that is about to change. As his past starts to unfold, he realizes that everything isn’t as bad as it seems. It’s much worse, and the world is hanging in the balance. Can he pull his sh!t together in time, or are we all doomed? Join Crappy in the most epic tail of junk and stuff evar told! Ok, maybe not evar told, but it will be fun. I promise!
The CrappyCat character comes from the mind of VanBeater (aka TVM). You probably saw a number of his designs in Jamungo's BlowUpDolls Series. But TVM has released CrappyCat Series 1, a blind box line featuring 16 different designs.
CrappyCat Series 1
Artist: VanBeater (TVM)
Material: Rotocast Vinyl
Dimensions: 2.75” tall
Points of Articulation: 6 (Neck, Arms, Legs, Tail)
Designs: 16 designs – Hoorayger (8.0%), Frosty (8.0%), Powdered (3.0%), Flocked Flunky (1.0%), C.Skull (8.0%), M.Skull (8.0%), Flunk Monkey (8.0%), Crappy Driver (2.6%), Just Crappy (8.0%), Havoc Cat (4.0%), Beater Crap (8.0%), Glow (8.0%), Crashed (8.0%), Marked Up (8.0%), Puked (7.0%), Blue Glow (2.3%)
Accessories: Marker, Gun, Beer Can, Handcuffs, Funnel
CrappyCat Series 1 is a blind boxed line. The box is littered with CrappyCat illustrations. The sides have illustrations of what appears to have been a rough night by the Cat, and the back has the lineup of possible designs.
Inside, the figure is held within a metallic bag. Also, there's a card in there that gives you the names of the characters and pull rates of those designs.
It was over three years ago when we first saw CrappyCat released as a 9” tall rotocast vinyl figure. This was followed up by an appearance in Jamungo's BlowUpDolls Series 3, where CrappyCat was dropped in a slightly smaller scale. As you can see below, the newly released figure is a completely different sculpt.
TVM went with a solid head sculpt, which allows him to change up the facial expressions of the various CrappyCats. The neck, arms, legs and tail are all articulated, but you'll need to be gentle the first time you turn them.
There's a number of different accessories included in this series. Depending on the character, the series includes a marker, a laser gun, a beer (with the plastic rings), a funnel (for funneling those beers), and a pair of handcuffs (one side being attached to Crappy's wrist).
This is a high quality blindbox series. All of the pad printing on the vinyl comes off looking great. The arms are a little wiggly on some of the figures, but that could be from me forcing the arms to move.
It's tough looking through all of the designs to find any that don't work (maybe the two Skull designs?). It's a little easier to find those that I really like. Marked Up features some of that killer pad printing all over Crappy's face. Puked - because vomiting up a funneled beer is fun...no? And Crashed sort of looks like Crappy was in the cast of The Hangover.
Overall, it's a solid series that's well-designed and features a nice variety of accessories. These are all things we look for in a good blindbox line. Oh...and you can pick up one in the sub-$10.00 range.
