Oceanic research droid nicknamed "Jabba-Jaw"
"No respect, nyuk nyuk nyuk!"
About this creation
An autonomus robot designed to slowly cruise the oceans, gathering data and sending it back to research institiutes via satelite. Cruising at a leisurely 5 knots, Jabba Jaw quietly samples the water's temperature, salinity and other proporties, at various depths, surfacing every 50 kms to download new GPS co-ordinates and upload it's latest data to waiting satelites. Occasionally, a Jabba Jaw's path will bring it close to Aquanaut bases, where a few technicians swim out and perform routine diagnostic checks, as the droid ponders on it's way.

Thousands of these droids will be used in the future to constantly monitor the health of the Earth's oceans.

   Gimme credit for using those awful exo-force robot legs at least!!

   Side view. He's a bit on the lean side; would've like to add a bit more meat to 'im.

   Looks like a turtle or pleisiosaur? Bit of both?

   They stow their vehicles on the handrails and proceed to diagnostic display.

   I only used yellow bricks to denote areas of importance to the divers, as they'll stand out in the blue gloom.

Everyone else has already said all the praise about the MOC so I just need to know... did you use the shot glass before, after or during the build? Later ~ Chris.

So I'm not the only one who remembers that wacky cartoon character ;) Great design, I like how it's "backwards" (it is right?) Great details. Divers / Aquaraiders MOCs are pretty rare, great work

Straight out of the pages of Nat Geo! I can see why Shannon and Nate said what they did and I agree but in all honesty, I really like it. It's got that simplistic structure about it that opitimises research craft construction. Very effective use of the turbine-mounted fins as flow direction vanes. great job, Shagga! ;)

I'm with Nate -- I see a shark tail where you say the head is. Especially as you have something of a zoomorphic theme going with your koala and squiddy, etc., it's hard not to see it like that. (And credit duly given on the robot legs - good use for them.)

It looks like a reversed shark. At first, I thought I was seeing the pictures backwards. The two fins by its "head" are the tail, and the two bigger ones near the back are the pectoral fins. Did you do that on purpose?
