Quick quiz: What year is it? If you answered the Year of the Snake, you are a wise one indeed and quite deserving of Andrew Bell's Chinese New Year Android. The figure is all decked out to resemble the Dancing Lions seen in festivals in many Asian countries. Not only does each Android hold a head of lettuce (harkening back to old Lion dance tradition) but they also come with a scroll bearing a New Year's message (there are 7 possible ones). Each of the scrolls is wrapped up so you won't know what your Android's says until you open it.
Available for purchase starting tomorrow at 11 a.m. Eastern, each of these limited edition Androids will cost US$10. They can be bought at Andrew's own Dead Zebra online store as well as in several Asian retailers including HypePulse of China, Hong Kong's City Super, and the Android Fan Store in Taiwan, and Singapore's Droidstore. From the sound of things, the physical retail outlets will be getting the bulk of the release while online shoppers will have to be quick to nab this one.
