I’ve been trying to find a product I vaguely remember being in the DAZ store, but can’t find it. I’m not sure if I’m just not putting the right things into searches, the product used to be in the store but has been withdrawn/retired, or my memory is just muddled (it’s certainly fuzzy enough these days) and actully no such thing ever existed here.

What my vague memory says is:

It’s a robot or robotic machine, NOT humanoid, NOT with legs like a mecha, rather a R2D2-ish cylindrical dustbin like thing that patrols as a guard. I have a hazy impression of the name or description involving ‘guard’, ‘guardian’, ‘security’ or something like that.

It’s NOT the PPU-T2000, or the R-Ex 2400 or the SRB 800. If it existed, my suspicion would be it was a Serrge item, maybe a PC 1.99 or weekly freebie (although I’m not certain about any of those things), and not at all recent ... several years ago.

Does anyone recognize what product I might be talking about? It’s quite possible I even have it, but have never used it and am not searching my runtimes with the right search terms to find it either.

3-d-c has a couple of droids/bots, in his Kazonica (?sp) set, some as freebies.  It may be one of those?

No, it was definitely something here.

It may wel be that I can find something else at another site that will do the job. It may also well be - given my fuzzy memory - that this thing that was here, whatever it was, wouldn’t actually be suitable for the purpose. But it’s just driving me up the wall that I can’t remember the name and the details of the thing that is/was here at DAZ. And as I say, I may well even have it in one of my runtimes somewhere, if I could only remember whaat it was called.

Yeah, Ant’s bots are pretty famous.

They and some other promising-looking ones turn up in a ’‘Bot’’ search. A couple of more for “droid”.

“patrol” finds this ruther intimidating thing, but it’s got legs and a lightbar (added textures take away the police paint). You could shrink it, if need be.

Mill Dragon Tack is in the first “vault” (Generation 1 & 2).


D-Bot was/is in a vault, but it’s humanoid.

No “droid” vaulted. There’s a PC $1.99 droid, but it’s humanoid.

No “security” or “guard” or “patrol” or “watch” bots vaulted.


Daz’s freebie site had these guys, but they’re for Bryce. (Vac-bot and Trash-bot)

I thought there was something called the Centinal or something similar and one called the Guardian, but I can’t find them in the shop, both PC items.

No, it’s not any of those. Not anything that comes up now from searches on robot, bot, droid, Serrge, Predatron, Valandar or The Ant Farm. Which is why I’m thinking that it’s something withdrawn from sale awhile ago. But I’d still like to know what it was.

Maybe one of those discontinued robots?
Robot - ps_ch025 - item=244
The Centurion - ps_ac614 - item=1763

Or the still available CS ButtleBot3000?

Edited to add the BDR 11.

I think I know what you’re talking about. It was free for a very short time and then pulled for reasons not to be discussed.

ParticleFX for DS4.5 is on the way.  Just be a little more patient.
