Mr. Krabs has short, nonarticulated legs and a unique molded head. Whereas in the television show he has large red claws, his LEGO minifigure features regular dark gray hands (the Atlantis Lobster Guardian would later introduce new red claw parts for a similar character).
Mr. Krabs is the cheap, stingy owner and manager of the Krusty Krab restaurant, and the employer of SpongeBob and Squidward. He is obsessed with money and will go to any length to save a few cents or earn a few more. Despite knowing that his business almost completely depends on SpongeBob's mastery with the spatula, he will manipulate and overwork his employees any chance he gets. He also has to contend with constant attempts by his business rival, Plankton, to steal the secret and lucrative Krabby Patty formula. He's not married but has a daughter, a whale named Pearl.
