February 8th marks the start of the new year in many Asian countries! In China and neighboring areas it’s traditional to give out gifts of red envelopes containing money to help ensure good fortune through the new year.
This year we released the ‘Red Pocket’ edition Android mini collectible in Asia, featuring a traditionally dressed Android holding up a whole bunch of red envelopes. Each figure also includes an actual red envelope containing a fun little Android / Monkey “dollar bill”, OR if you’re really lucky, a ‘golden ticket’ that rewards the winner with a custom minted 10g 24k gold coin worth over $450!
We’ve got two of those golden tickets somewhere in our limited stock of figures! The Androids will be available in the Dead Zebra Shop starting this Monday (Jan 25th) at 11am EST for $10 each.
Good luck and good fortune!
On February 3rd, over a Billion people will be celebrating the Chinese New Year! To commemorate the event and to help usher in a year of prosperity, we got together with our Asia distributor to create a new special edition Asia exclusive Android mini figure. Meet Cai Shen, the god of wealth!
Unless you are lucky enough to work for Google, Inc in Beijing, or live in China or Taiwan, these little guys will be a bit tough to get. However, I managed to snag 200 for sale over on this side of the pond.
Because there are so few, we’re going to a lottery system. If you live in Americas (North and South) or Europe, you can enter for the chance to purchase one. Despite the extra accessories, they’ll still be $10 like the other special editions (plus shipping).
One entry per person, entries close January 4th.
If you do live in China or Taiwan, the figure will be available for sale at these and possibly other places starting January 5th!
Singapore: (coming soon)
