As you probably know, the Big Android BBQ is coming up on October 19-21 in the Dallas/Ft. Worth, TX area. If you didn't know, don't stress - you can still get a ticket. But hurry - they're only on sale until the 19th.

In celebration of the BBQ, Dead Zebra - the creator of those awesome little Android figurines that everyone loves - has crafted some to commemorate the occasion!


These little guys will be on sale at the BBQ for $20 a set - but we also have three sets to give away. That is why you're here, after all!

How to Enter

he contest is now over. Here are the winners, chosen at random:

  • AnDroid
  • fodawim (didn't reply to notification)
  • Cara Russell
  • Marisa Lopez

Congratulations - 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.

We just love super-simple contests, so we'll go with that. If you want a set, leave a comment telling us why you want these little guys. Are you going to the BBQ and want to have a souvenir of the occasion? Or perhaps you can't attend and need some new friends to console you during your time of grief. Whatever the reason, drop us a line and they might be yours.

We'll let this one run through the weekend and select a winner on Monday, so get your entry in before Sunday, October 14th at 11:59 PM PT.

We're good to ship anywhere except for Italy and Malaysia, so everywhere else is fair game. Hit it!
