Mariner 2014 is a commission piece from a collector who has requested several surfing / aquatic / ocean themed robots. Created as part of the Mariner Series. The base figure is a Hasbro Mighty Mugg, and the legs, arms, and surfboard (technically a Prone Paddleboard) were all scratch builds.
His Story: “Mariner 2014 was deployed in 2014 as a Prone Paddleboard robot. He is related to the SUPbot team, and shares their love for sea life, especially sea turtles. He spends his time paddling around the world, helping the turtles with a specially tuned extra sensory device. This device alerts him to a sea turtle in danger and also tells him when hatchlings are getting ready to be born. He then helps make sure the hatchlings get to the water quickly to start growing into healthy adults.”
