We love Dead Zebra's Android figurines - especially when there's a limited edition one up for grabs, like the awesome new Toy Soldier (which is sold out for now, unfortunately). Andrew Bell of Dead Zebra has kindly given us five of these little guys to hand out to hand out to our readers.

This contest is now over. Here are our winners, selected at random:

Congratulations, guys - all of you will be contacted for your information in the near future!

Everyone else - keep participating and stay tuned to Android Police so that you don't miss our upcoming giveaway announcements. You can follow AP on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, and RSS.


He's going to take over the world - with smiles.

We're keeping this contest simple: all you have to do to enter is comment on this post explaining why you want an Android Toy Soldier, and we'll select 5 comments at random as winners.  BE SURE TO INCLUDE A VALID EMAIL ADDRESS IN THE EMAIL FIELD FOR YOUR COMMENT (re-comment if your first comment did not have one).

    Well, I could surely give you many reasons why I should be honored by you, the android source gods, but I'm a humble reader, follower, supporter, and in all my free time post links and use you as my main portal of all things android and then sum. I convert heretics (iphone peeps) into true green believers just by shutting them up with sources from your site only, but I digress. I would greatly appreciate and be humbled if you select me as a worthy overseer of this iconic green bundle of joy. Not a bad comment for being at work at 7:36am and running on 2 hours of sleep huh?
