Andrew Bell continues to share the new Series 3 Android Collectibles over at the Dyzplastic blog, with today’s being the “Nexus” collectible. With its smokey dark translucent body, you can apparently get optimal play by placing him next to a light source. Oh, he also comes equipped with his own mini-Nexus phone that you can see in his right hand.
Still no exact date for release, but I can’t wait to see the rest. (more…)
The Series 3 Android Collectibles have seen their share of delays, but during those periods, improvements were made that should help this be the best set yet (Ball-jointed arms, anyone?). We have good news, though! According to the series’ makers, shipments of the final product will be arriving in California today, and will then cruise through customs on their way to distribution. Once that has happened, they will ship out to retailers and hopefully onto your doorsteps a few days later. It could be another couple of weeks depending on long it takes to get through customs, but we are almost there!
After what was going to be a “late July” release, we have learned this afternoon that we can expect the Series 3 Android minis to begin shipping out in Q3 instead. Due to some production holdups, the minis team fell a little behind, but ensures customers that the minis are now ready and shipments will begin in the new Q3 time frame. (more…)
A reader of ours attended ComicCon last week in San Diego and walked away with a handful of goodies that we are beyond jealous of. He kicked it with Andrew Bell for a few minutes before diving into a set of his new Series 3 Android Collectibles. We have seen these suckers leak in blurry or rendered pictures here or there, but these are pictures of 5 of the new designs from the set in the wild.
How cool is the see-through Bugdroid with the mini Bugdroid inside? 8-Ball Bugdroid with included pool cue and hat? The owl? This is only 5 of the 16 and we are blown away, so you can imagine how anxious we are to see the rest. Said to be launching some time in late July, we cannot wait to get a hold of a couple of cases.

Android collectible collectors, add the new Comic-Con series to your list. The two new special edition collectibles are named Griller and Fandroid, both come with accessories. The Fandroid mini comes with a laniard to add to his Trekkie attire. The Griller mini comes with a spatula and grill, so that your summer burger obsession can spill into your doll collection. Only 1,000 have been made, which can be picked up during Comic-Con in San Diego from July 11-15 at booth #4728 or from DKE Toys.
At the end of July, assuming there are no setbacks, we will all have a chance to get our hands on the latest in Android collectibles. According to a blog post over at Dyzplastic, Series 3 is almost done and ready to be manufactured in mass. They had initially hoped to release these in Q2, but with some design changes to improve the series, Andrew Bell and the team wanted to make sure you knew that it’ll be another couple of weeks.
As you can tell from the picture above of the Kronk Ape, this leaked “sneak peak” that made it to retailers in February was on point. Also, you can see the owl in the background, even with the blur.
Excited? I certainly am.
A reader of ours received a shipment of Android mini-collectibles that from what we gathered, have never been released before. The two that he has multiples of are pictured above as a doctor and an athlete/tennis player. He is willing to part with some and has posted them up on eBay in case any of the mini-collectible collectors in the building are interested. Could they be a part of Series 3 or were they axed from previous box sets? Tough to tell, but we definitely want some for our own personal collections. (more…)
If you happen to be lucky enough to be in Barcelona or are still just watching the mobile festivities from home, you can get in on the action at MWC thanks to Google’s latest release to the Android Market. The app contains booth information, maps, notes, and even an android pin checklist to use to make sure you have them all. Go have some fun!
