Dead Zebra makes all those neat little Android minis you see floating around. They're usually available for a very limited time when new sets and special editions are released, but you might want to make sure you're on time for the next release. To celebrate Chinese New Year on February 8th, a special "Red Pocket" Android mini will go on sale, and two of them entitle the buyer to a real gold coin as a prize. Read More
I love Christmas. It's easily my favorite holiday of the year—just looking at the lights and festive decorations fills me with so much glee I could explode. A sparkly explosion of glee and joy all over the place. It would be the most loving explosion of all time.
But alas, I kind of don't want to explode. I mean, if I'm going to go, an explosion of pure glee wouldn't be a bad way to do it…but I've still got stuff to do, ya know? Anyway, I'm getting off topic here—we're not talking about explosions. We're talking about Christmas and how awesome it is. Read More
Dyzplastic's Android figures designed by Andrew Bell take that warm fuzzy feeling you get from using your phone and plaster it on top of your desk. You can get a standard green one or choose from any number of models that look as though they were taken from Androidify and put through a 3D printer. Read More
Dead Zebra's long-running line of themed Android figures is expanding by three next week. The latest figures use the now-iconic shape of the Android mascot, but bear cartoon likenesses of three of the biggest names in scientific history: Sir Isaac Newton, Marie Curie, and Nikola Tesla. They'll go on sale in the Dead Zebra shop starting on Monday, April 20th at 11AM Eastern time (8AM Pacific). Each one will cost $10. Read More
What good is an adorable mascot if you're not going to make figurines out of it? Designer Andrew Bell has created numerous adaptations of Android's bugdroid (produced by Dyzplastic), and now his latest series is available from Dead Zebra, Inc.
Android Mini Series 05 includes 16 different possible Androids. A single order costs $9 and comes with one provided at random. If you want to get the full set without the risk of ordering duplicates, you can place an order for $140.
The full set comes with 14 different designs and two secret rare collectibles. Units on display here include an angry cop (someone please put an Android Police logo on this guy), some sort of skeleton, a weird-looking chef, a sad panda, and an Android that looks like an Android. Read More
The fifth series of Android mini collectibles from Dead Zebra is just around the corner, and the first preview is now live on Dead Zebra's site. Andrew Bell and company have some fun stuff this year, including an Android policeman. It's not technically connected with Android Police, but I'm going to pretend it is. Just add an AP logo and you're golden.
Halloween is right around the corner, and you know what that means (aside from candy-starved children running around in ghoulish clothes): it's time for a new Android figurine from Andrew Bell. For this year's collectable, Mr. Bell turned our beloved Bugdroid into a creepy little cat named Lucky Lucy, whose duality is very apparent from the start thanks to her reversible head.
This contest is now over.
The final results are listed below. If you've won, you will be contacted in the near future. Congratulations!
Everyone else - keep participating and stay tuned to Android Police so that you don't miss our upcoming giveaway announcements.
The Comic-Con special editions of Andrew Bell's Android figurines are always special, and this year is no exception. These limited-edition Heroes & Villains II figures were available in San Diego last week on the show floor, but now you can pick them up in a 4-piece bundle for yourself. It's priced reasonably at $40, which is the same sticker price you would have paid for four regular figures.
The figures have a comic book theme, but with a suitably technological twist. The Superman stand-in is Super User, with a big "SU" on his costume's shield and a fetching cape. "Bot Man" looks like a certain dark knight with a grey cape and a robot-themed logo and utility belt. Read More
Andrew Bell's kickass mini Android collectibles are, well, kickass. But sometimes the job calls for a bigger Android collectible. I'm honestly not sure what job that may be, but there has to be at least one. And for that one, Andrew has answered the call – welcome the Mega Android Collectible to the family. At ten inches, it's pretty big. Comparatively, anyway. (Mind out of the gutter, guys.)
This massive Android features ball-jointed arms and a big ol' removable head. You can even put stuff in his body. Like a can of soda. Or beer. Or other stuff that's small enough to fit inside a compartment about the size of a can. Read More
Most of the Android Police team is strangely obsessed with the small vinyl Android collectables from Dead Zebra created by Andrew Bell and other artists. They're just the right size to clutter up a desk, but the same cannot be said for the newest Android collectable. The Mega Android is almost 10-inches tall and costs a whopping $70 for the standard green edition.
