    I gotta say...I don't understand this figure. I picked it up because I like Jon Burgerman's style on toys. But the sharp curve to the head and the bloated Dunny body just aren't working for me at all. What do other folks think of Bitbots?

    That's the problem, they are using the platform like a dunny!

    There is nothing wrong with the form they just need to develop their own style. It needs to be more appropriate to the form rather than just wrapping a dunny illustrator file around a bitbot.

    Some of them work well but I would like to see a new style of platform toy rather than another dunny.

    This platform sucks so much, I don't even bother to comment! (err!)
    Burgerman's doodles are pretty nice though. Reminds me of the late Jean-Michel Basquiat's messy aesthetics.

    I quite like Jon's stuff but i think both this platform and the design Jon has done for it blow. I think it's boring

    The Bitbot platform sucks, as does this toy. I struggled to pass on this being a massive Burgerman fan for the past 4-5 years, but with a bit of life coaching from my girlfriend (lol) I managed to save myself £40! I dont know what Jon was thinking, maybe he was just keen to support a UK production platform in its early days, but it's ugly!
