Crimbo P. R. E. S. S. I. E.
Crimbo P. R. E. S. S. I. E.

This is one of the new prototypes coming out of Uncle Crimbo's R&D department. It's a Positronic Robotic Entity Skilled in Sabotage and Improvisational Explosions, or P.R.E.S.S.I.E. for short. Basically, it's a robot designed to cause all kinds of festive, holiday-themed mischief.

This one's on standby right now, so it doesn't blow up the entire store and kill everyone in it. In a totally festive way, of course.

  • December 2007's item of the month from Mr. Store.
Its in-store description: Acts like either a volleyball or a sombrero (see this forum post for technical details,) and does various robotechtronic things in combat.
  • The forum post in question reads:
    Okay, so, what this familiar does is a bunch of random stuff in combat that may or may not be of any interest to optimizers.
    What it also does, however, and what probably is of interest to optimizers, is it acts like a volleyball most of the time.
    Its arena equipment is +5 pounds, and is also [fold]able into a piece of equipment that is +5 pounds and also switches the P. R. E. S. S. I. E.'s functionality from volleyball to sombrero.
    Have fun!
  • On a radio show, Jick stated that the P. R. E. S. S. I. E. backronym was created by using the Cyborg Name Generator, with him changing "Immediate Exploration" to "Improvisational Explosions".
  • First prize in The Raffle House on January 9, 2008.
