You can't win me, I can't be beat!
— Cabinet Mann publicity blurb
The Cabinet Mann is a community-created cosmetic item for the Engineer. It turns the Engineer's head into a team-colored "Spy Swatter" arcade cabinet, complete with a loose joystick and a glowing screen displaying a pixelated face.
The pixelated face has facial flexes that correspond with those of the Engineer, allowing it to copy the Engineer's current expression and facial movements.
This item can only be worn around Halloween or during a Full Moon; at other times of the year, it does not appear in gameplay, unless the server has Halloween mode enabled. However, it can be equipped at any time and can still be viewed on the loadout screen even when it is not visible during games.
The Cabinet Mann was contributed to the Steam Workshop.
