Update history

May 17, 2013 Patch (Robotic Boogaloo)

  • The Mecha-Medes was added to the game.

February 11, 2014 Patch

  • Changed item type to "Mascot".

Trivia

  • The item's description refers to the Bill's Hat, as its backstory states that it fell off a table and into the TF2 world in a similar sense to how Archimedes fell off a table into a parallel world. It also references the 1968 movie Planet of the Apes, where the Statue of Liberty is found by the main protagonist half-buried in the sand and decayed.
    • The comic number listed is based on mathematical constant Pi. The Greek philosopher and mathematician Archimedes helped proved the formula for the area of a circle.
    • A Flight of Fancy is an idea or narrative that is extremely imaginative yet unrealistic.
