A request for a military themed robot sculpture was made by a customer (AKA "Ken") recently. This sculpture was to incorporate several items he had discovered along the way while treasure hunting. One of the main components would include a rather heavy Horizontal Gyroscope Gauge used in early F86 fighter jets. In its previous life, this attitude indicator would have let the pilot know the orientation of the aircraft relative to the Earth's horizon. No longer needed to provide such a task to gravity defying pilots anymore, this indicator was now destined to become the perfect robot head. It would also need to balance atop of the vintage 1944 aluminum water canteen main body. The remaining parts Ken threw into the mix would be that of an old bicycle light for a potential robot backpack, a small canvas pouch, a set of GI Joe dog tags and a military insignia pin.

Constructed from the crumpled radiated flotsam of the conflict that scourged the galaxy after the Arcturus supernova, Armoured Combat Exploration and Reconnaissance (ACER) Bots scour the planets of the Terminal Opus Sector searching for the last remnants of carbon based life. Long range in capability, these heavily armoured and self repairing SeekRbots autonomously propel themselves using two massive cone pinched Corinne Stellarators. Don’t let their simple avionics fool you, they are highly complex and a very deceptive bot. If you let them get too close, their hyper relative analgesia fogger machine exhausts a potent dermal penetrating gas that neutralizes its target with debilitating chuckles, while it calls in your coordinates to Terminal Opus Base 1.
