Meet the Androids: Albino and APK 2008

Reminder: Do not go wasting your cash on eBay resellers with jacked-up prices, there will be more Androids in the future if you are patient!

People are starting to get their Androids! If you have some good photos why not drop them into our Flickr Pool?

One last “regular” Android to show off, followed by one of the rarer chase editions.. so don’t scroll down if you don’t want spoilers!

Someone had requested an explaination of this guy. Most Android devs and quite a few users will be familiar with APK, the file format for Android install packages. 2008 is the year Android debuted. The whole thing? An pretty blatant homage to one of my favorite classic Sci-Fi movies!

Release the Robots! *SOLD OUT*

What a crazy rush! Unfortunately we are now super extra sold out of our online stock. We had hoped to offer more this evening, but a software issue caused some over-sales.

If you missed out today, check back here in a week or two for a list of stores that will have some! If you miss those, there should be more available in a few months when our second shipment comes in! FEAR NOT, Androids shall be yours!

Meet the Androids: CopperBot & Reactor

Two for one mega-size Friday update! This is perhaps the most anticipated of the Androids teased so far. Say hello to my little friend, CopperBot.

Metallic copper finish with mechanical detailing and an overwhelming desire to be loved.

You could even say it glows! (it does, in the dark)

Finally on another note, I will be at myplasticheart in NYC for a bit tonight to attend the opening reception for New Moon 2010! If you enjoy toys and art and are in the New York area, why not stop in?

Have a great weekend everyone!

Meet the Androids: Darknet

We continue our introduction to the designs! Half-way through working on this post the power went out in my building. Coincidence? Most definitely. This guy is named “Darknet”, not “Blackout”. He features black on black artwork and a crazy look in his red eyes.

Meet the Androids: Hi-Voltage

I’ll be taking the opportunity over the next few days to introduce some of the designs and share some more information!

As some of you have figured out, these guys will be available February 10th. The first batch will hit right here online (yes we ship internationally), followed in a week or two by a limited release in toy and collectible shops both online and in the real world! After that I’m afraid you’ll be waiting a few months while our replication pods recharge, so good luck! Price? About $7.25 per box, with discounts on cases of 16.

We’ve already seen standard Android, so today we start up with this electrifying Android.
