Oh my goodness you know I need one of these fancy chicken dudes from Frank Kozik and Kidrobot. It would look so good next to my Colonel plastic bank that I got at the end of last summer. There he was, shining like a plastic beacon of amazing in an antique shop in Washington State, and I knew I had to have him. The dude is an icon of deliciousness and deserves to be celebrated for his achievement. I also bought a metal wall hanging that depicts two elk that some dude with a torch carved out, but that's not really relevant to anything or I would have brought that up sooner.
Is this an homage to secret herbs and spices, a depiction of what eating too much chicken will do to you, or the penance that a southern gentleman now faces who built an empire on the backs of genetically enhanced poultry? Why don't you ask Frank himself when he appears at 3DRetro in Glendale, California on Friday April 29th to celebrate this toy's release. They'll have both the regular white version and some of the black and gold Kidrobot exclusive editions for sale and if you ask real nice maybe Frank will draw you a smorkin chicken on the bucket-shaped packaging. Or maybe he'll be mad at me for suggesting that and having to draw farm foul all night long. Oops.
The whole shindig starts at 7pm and lasts till the fun runs out (or some predetermined time I don't know about). Supposedly there will be actual fried chicken there as well, which is the sign of a good party if you ask me.
