Robot Chicken Hat
The Robot Chicken Hat is a community-created promotional cosmetic item for all classes. It is based on the Robot Chicken from the eponymous television series; it consists of a partial metal lid that covers the upper right half of the head, with team-colored, jiggly spikes on top representing a comb, and one eye with a team-colored light for a pupil, connected to the hat via a pair of team-colored and yellow wires. An orange beak is placed at the very front of the hat, next to the eye.
This item has two styles, named "Normal" and "Beakless". The "Beakless" style removes the beak, and makes the comb slightly taller.
