If you went to middle school at the same time as me, you might remember Yu-Gi-Oh. It's that show about a kid with an alien starfish attached to his brain that makes him hallucinate about ancient Egyptian playing cards destroying the world. (That's how I remember it, anyway.)

It's getting very close to the time of year when children dress themselves up as super heroes, princesses, zombies, and race car drivers, going door to door taking advantage of the one day when they are all entitled to receive candy. Most people that are swept up in the Halloween spirit will probably stick a jack o' lantern on the front porch alongside an inflated skeleton, but you, dear Android Police reader, are not most people.

You're probably familiar with the Android vinyl figurines from Andrew Bell and Dead Zebra. They're nifty little collectibles that pay homage to the platform we all love. Some folks, however, take things more seriously. Rather than display the same collectables as everyone else, they employ their skills to modify and embellish the basic Android figures. One of these artists, Hitoshi Mitani, has been so kind as to post all of his amazing work online for us to see.
Mitani has dozens of projects listed, and you can click on any of them to get images and a brief description (be aware a number are actually from other artists). Read More
