Thanks to all the fans for the continued support (and patience!), I know you’re going to love this series!
As Android Series 03 finally starts hitting shops, here’s our last “preview” update – weekend special edition! There are a few designs from returning artist Scott Tolleson and previouslt featured KRONK that we haven’t shown off yet.. but we have to leave a little mystery for those of you who don’t want the rare figures spoiled!
This valiant warrior has seen many a fierce fight. Every night he ventures into the unknown, unaware of what fresh hell awaits. He battles unimaginable beasts deep within Feature Creep Keep… (I think I just had an idea for another Android design.) Sir Knightly Bild was designed by me, and has a 1/16 ratio.
His 3D turnaround isn’t quite ready yet, but we’ll be sure to post it in the future so you can get a look at his beautiful butt plumage.
God of the wild, god of goats, nature protector.. kick-ass flautist? From the sparkly purple brainmeats of artist Kelly Denato comes Pandroid! Ready to rock out with his tiny pan flute accessory, this Android has a 1/16 ratio.
You thought your teachers were tough? This one is mostly metal! Well, ok it’s still technically vinyl, but don’t tell the good Professor Skully McRivethead that. Artist Huck Gee brings his distinct touch to Android with this awesome design, 1/16 ratio.
Clearly something is special about this Android.. Pop off his head and you have yourself a micro Android!
This little guy has a built-in keychain attachment and features an articulated head and arms, and legs that move enough to let him sit up unaided. 2 for 1, can’t go wrong! 1/16 ratio.
Continuing the solid color tradition, series 03 ha us seeing a very specific shade of red! Are you sensing a color pattern yet? Hmmmm.. Red comes in a 2/16 ratio.
Wondering about buying these guys? They’ll be available on the Dead Zebra shop (along with a few surprises) starting Monday 9/24 at 11am EDT for shipments starting on 9/26.
Additionally they should start popping up in toy, collectible, comic and specialty Android retailer locations and websites within the next few days, including many on this list! Also available through many of our Asia retailers starting on the 24th.
Our S3 shipment is in and delivered to the magical toy cave, where distribution will begin shortly! S3 should start popping up in retailers very soon, and I’ll post the Dead Zebra Shop release schedule / information tomorrow!
But we’ve still got some previews to get through! Rack a can of this awesome “cry-on” design by MAD. 1/16 ratio.
Of course we have a little extra for you. Turn your sound on for shake rattle and..roid. Always wear your respirator, kids.
Artist kaNO put together this awesome Beastie Boys / Japanese construction inspired design long before the recent tragic loss of MCA. I’m glad it made it into the series as I think it serves as a fun tribute to the late great intergalactic rap superstar! Armed with a mic accessory, ready to let the beat drop with a 1/16 ratio.
If you ask for a “venti mocha blaster”, or a “frappa caramel whatsit”, this Android will kick you out of the cafe before you can even finish your obnoxious branding babble order. Stop talking made up nonsense, here’s your espresso. Drink it within 15 seconds and move along.
When my sister opened Cafe Grumpy here in Brooklyn 7 years ago I helped her out by designing the logo.. and then somehow I was drafted into serving a brief stint as a barista. I never drank much coffee before that, so by the end of the day I looked pretty much like this guy.
This is one of those designs that needs to be seen in person to fully appreciate! Nexus sports a smokey dark translucent body and carries the latest generation flagship 4G LTE GSM dual band tri force quadruple card 5GHz 5″ HD* completely non-functional miniature Nexus phone accessory.
Set him up near a light source for maximum effect! 2/16 ratio. *note: phone specs may be slightly exaggerated, phone is a small piece of solid plastic.
Series 3 is almost upon us! Hooray! Our shipment is arriving on the sunny shores of California today and should be hitting retailers in a week or two after we clear customs and truck it over to the distribution center!
Let’s count down the days with a few design previews, starting with Sket One’s glossy conman, 8-Ball Hustler. This slick black fedora wearing pool player also includes a cue accessory.
Wow it’s been a few months since I posted here! It doesn’t feel like it, because we’ve been hard at work behind the scenes since last year on the next designer series of Android mini collectibles! Originally we were aiming for a Q2 release, which would be before the end of this month…
The good news is that they’re better than ever, almost ready, and they look great! The bad news is that the improvements we’ve made equaled slightly longer prototyping manufacturing time. Despite things being pushed back a bit, I think everyone will be pleased with the results. We hope to have them all on a big ole boat by the end of the month and in your hands starting late July.
We’ll also have some more awesome Android news for you next week, so check back! SDCC2012
