A friend of mine spotted this character at an archery trade show. Neither of us can figure out if it's an established pop culture persona or just some company's mascot.

Tall, shiny black robot with an orange hand

  • Just tried Google image search. Nothing with that distinctive emblem on its chest. Jan 18, 2018 at 17:28
  • Which archery trade show was this? (Location, etc)?

  • The helmet, wrist, and knee pads have the same logo as a poster in the background. So it's probably a mascot for whatever that logo represents. Jan 18, 2018 at 18:48

    Poster in the background? I think you're looking at his backpack. But, yes, the over abundance of logos was why I suspected a mascot.

This appears to be the "OZ" robot designed by Robot Costumes USA for ScentLok Technologies

You can see some video footage on their website. A closer inspection of the logo reveals that it says Active Odor Destroyer.

    Based on the photo, I was trying to figure out what an "ACTIVE DOOR ESTROYFR" was. What a great font choice!

    Since the D and O are so close together, it got me wondering if it was saying "active door destroyer" instead. Does "estroyfr" come from damage to the letters? Jan 19, 2018 at 3:52
  • @JohnDvorak - They illuminate. In this instance some of the bulbs appear to not be working very well.

The character is in some way associated with ScentLok

He appears to be sporting the ScentLok logo.

Found by identifying the RexPID sign in the background, going to the exhibitors floorplan, finding the RexPID booth and then looking at the vendors that seemed to be within line of sight of that booth
