My obsession with Android figures continues. The four I have are part of a collection designed by artist Andrew Bell, in partnership with Dyzplastic and Google. There were several other designs when Series 01 shipped last year, and initially you could get a box of 16 figures for $116.

(Incidentally, I pulled this photo from Maximum PC.)
Besides, I may as well save my money: I saw this post earlier today that indicates Android Series 02 figures are coming in early March. With advance apologies to the missus, I may be adding to my Android collection.
While I was able to snap up the four I have from Amazon, a lot of other online retailers I first looked at were sold out. In fact, the first pair I ordered were $8.49 each, and the second were $9.18 each (though after shipping, I ended up paying 22 cents less overall for the second order. Odd). Now, as I write this, they're going for $11.95 on Amzon.
In my mind, that's quite a markup from the original $7.50 each green figure retailed for. I might just snap up Series 02 as soon as possible.
