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!

  • http://ashish.bogawat.com Ashish Bogawat

  • Arcz

    I would love to win those bbq android figurines. Because I really need somethings to decorate my desktop with, and those figurines would be perfect. Also there is no way to get those in Norway, and I'm big fan of Android so I would be pleased if I got those. Just want to mention that in Norway it rains alot, so it would be nice to stare at something while it's raining and I'm bored.

  • Andrew

    LOL...This is awesome! 2011 and 2012 so far (weather permitting) have been the years of the bbq...well, grilling really....rib-eye steaks being my favorite with so much experimentation with rubs, cuts, and technique ('09-'10 was blue crabs/seafood addiction...I get them live, season, steam and season them again!) This would be great to put at the center of the table when I have folks who are predominately iPhone owners who attend. =) SGS3 ftw!

  • David Baxter

    I'd love to win these guys, as Texas is waaaay to far for me to travel (all the way from the UK!) I could effectively have my own little Android BBQ! Also, they'd look great on my desk and be a good conversation starter!!

  • http://komorkomania.pl/author/michal-brzezinski Michal Brzezinski

    I'm waiting for some Android figurines for so much time! In my country they're extremely expensive and although I won one of your contests, I didn't receive my prize from vinylfigurines. I dream about putting them on my desk!

  • http://stevenroose.be Steven Roose

    As I'm from Belgium and I cannot afford it to take the plane for a BBQ (although probably the most awesome BBQ existing!), I cannot attend and I would love to be part of it just a little bit by having a cute little Android dummy next to my computer!
    And of course, I'd be able to brag with it to my geek-friends :)

  • http://tr.im/delgado Jason D.

    the bbq is in my hood and i can't go,... would love a little figurine though :)

  • Tom

    Love to see these on my desk. BBQing indoors all day long.

  • http://twitter.com/a5modeu5 Aaron Esham

    Wish I could go to the BBQ, but can't. These would keep my other android figures company.

  • Chris Jackson

    Hello AndroidPolice - Id love to win one of these, i dont have any Android 'figurines' but am a massive Android (Dare i say, fanboy?) - Im in the UK, so Texas is really far for me to travel especially with my damaged knee, but id still love to win one of these purely based on the fact its Android, its a figurine that can sit on my desk and its crazy funny too with the BBQ gear on :) lol - I really hope i win one, cya guys & love the podcasts.

  • Rafał Pierchała

    I really want to go to BBQ but flying to the US would cost me fortune. I'd still love have them tho! I promise I'll take care of them, you know cuddle them, put them to sleep before ten, take them to school with me, play pool and all sort of stuff!

  • bsinc1962

    Those guys would look amazing on my desk BBQ'n the Apple fanboys in the adjoining cubes.

  • Kieron Boswell

    I want one because I have no face and this will make me feel good

    I badly need these. My workspace is currently Hawaiian-shirt free.

  • m00k

    I want them to start planting the idea of Android ownership in my kids early. I've already banned them from eating apples.

    I'm joking obviously, I just can't think of a valid reason other than how awesome and desirable the are! If I win, they kids won't get anywhere near them as they've already broke the antennae of a few of my other Android figures!

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001312561641 Tim Portnoy

    I would love to get this awesome vinyl toy on my desk!

    I can't go to the BBQ. So I really need company.
