Many of you have been asking how you could get your hands on those little Android guys that you can usually see hanging out in my reviews. Like these ones here:

wm_IMG_9785

I've personally acquired them over time - at Google I/O, the Lookout party, and Dead Zebra itself (no, you can't have mine!), but that's not the only way.

A good friend of ours, Omar Trujillo, also known as @0mie, partnered with us to promote his official vinyl figurines store where you can pick up authentic, Google-licensed, Dead Zebra-designed vinyl Android figurines and give them a new home.

VinylFigurines.com

Enter VinylFigurines.com, which is currently home to over 10 little Android designs. Each one will set you back only about $10-15, which, if you know the limited and high-demand market for these little Android guys, is a very fair price.

Here are a few of them at a glance:

Vinyl Figurines ships internationally for a few more bucks - we'll leave it between you and the robots to sort out the language barriers.

So, check out VinylFigurines.com, perhaps pick up a few or just try your hand at the giveaway below.

Giveaway

This contest is now over. We have selected the winners - see if you are one of them here.

Update: Omar is throwing in 2 more, for the grand total of 12.

Android Police, Omar, and VinylFigurines.com are giving out 10 12 random little Androids to 10 12 lucky Android Police readers.

All you have to do enter? Leave a comment here in this post.

Any comment would do, but if you're looking for some ideas, it can be a question for Omar/VF, screams of excitement, a funny joke. Profess your love for Android - do whatever you want, go nuts.

The giveaway is open to anyone in the world (we've asked VF to ship worldwide, and they agreed) and will run until this Friday, Sep 9th 23:59 PT.

The 10 12 winners will be selected at random shortly after.

Good luck - off you go now!
