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!

If you happen to stop by an Urban Outfitters, or have future plans of shopping in a Barnes & Noble or F.Y.E. anytime soon, you may have a chance to scoop up some adorable Android mini figurines. An open (non-limited) edition of the Android miniatures have been produced exclusively for some big retailers in the United States and possibly Europe. You can find a taxi cab android, yeti android, or even the cute little business man android. (more…)
As Android fanatics, we can’t seem to get enough mini collectibles. From series 1 to the series 2 mystery box to special edition super hero/villain releases, we try our hardest to collect them all. Well, what we have below may be a leaked “sneak peak” of series 3 that was sent to retailers. From the screenshot, you will see that there are still a lot of question marks, so either not all of the designs are finalized or the goal is to make even more a mystery this time around. So far, these designs are looking incredibly promising.
Getting excited over toys feels so wrong, yet so damn good. (more…)
