Just out of the slobot studio, these are the SUPbots. they stand about 9” tall (13” or so to the top of the surfboards). They were created as special commissions for an art collector that is partial to surfing and sea life. They are created from old and new toys, resin, paint, rubber, and glass. oh yeah, this one has quite a bit of glow in the dark, too… you can commission your own slobot at the slobot web store.
Their story goes like this:
“The SUPbots are part of an elite team of slobots who travel the oceans of the world on their trusty Stand Up Paddleboards, setting dolphins free from fishermen’s nets and stopping the hunting of seals. They seek peace through education and force (if necessary,) while always being careful not to endanger humans or animals. A unique breed of slobot, the SUPbots are fluent in most dialects of dolphin and seal. They are also capable of speaking with sea animals telepathically.”
