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.
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. 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. 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.
It's that time again, obsessive collectors: time to fight the masses for a tiny hunk of vinyl and cuteness. Chinese New Year is coming up on Friday, and to celebrate the creators of the ever-popular Android figurines are releasing yet another special edition toy. This time it's dedicated to the Year of the Horse, with a red paint job inspired by the Zodiac figure.
Dead Zebra tends to get swamped when new special editions are being sold, so they're releasing them in two batches: one at 11 AM Eastern Time (right as this story is published) and another batch at 11 PM. Read More
Do you wish to display your love of Google-branded operating systems to your friends and loved ones, but find Hallmark's selection of nerdy ornaments unaccountably lacking? Then Dead Zebra has your back. They're selling a modified special edition of the ever-shifting Android figurine that's been modified into a Christmas tree ornament. You can pick up one of these shiny fellows in red or blue for $10.
There's a limit of two single ornaments for each order, but if you need enough to make your tree positively spangled with tiny toy robots, there's also a "Tree Pack." It includes five red and five blue ornaments for $90, a 10% saving. Read More
Get those browsers warmed up, collectors: the fourth series of Dead Zebra's increasingly zany selection of Android figures is now on sale. You can pick up the new toys from the Dead Zebra web store, and hurry, since they tend to run out of initial stock in less than one day. There are 14 new figures, including ninjas, fishermen, a gold-plated Bugdroid, and more.
Individual blind boxes are $8.50, and cases of 16 cost $132. Read More
You know those adorable little Android collectables made by Andrew Bell and Dead Zebra? Well, you can head over that way and buy yourself an early non-denominational holiday festival present. Dead Zebra has opened "The Vault," which is stocked with leftover Android minis from old sets and heavily discounted units with slightly jacked up packaging.
You can't buy a rainbow, no matter how many Pink Floyd albums you listen to, but today you can buy a set of Androids in rainbow colors.

They go on sale for $69 in the Dead Zebra online store today, at 11 AM Eastern Daylight Time. Read More
