After a lengthy (and painful) wait, it looks like Andrew Bell’s Android S3 minis are about to find their ways to collectors’ shelves. While the boxes show 14 designs, there are apparently 15 designs in this series. Several retailers are now taking pre-orders with an estimated ship date of 9.26 including myplasticheart and rotofugi. The Blind boxes are 7.95 while the case has a suggested retail of ~ $127.
S3 features fourteen designs from Google, Andrew Bell, Gary Ham, Huck Gee, KaNO, MAD, KRONK, Kelly Denato, Scott Tolleson and Sket One. As you know, Andrew Bell has been gradually previewing the S3 designs – most recently showing MAD’s Cry-On Design and Huck Gee’s Professor Skully McRivethead. In addition, Gary Ham’s owl design was part of the SDCC preview release and Andrew Bell’s second design is shown above (just left of KaNO’ design in the top row). As you might hope for, MAD’s design features an integrated rattle for that tell-tale spraycan sound. Also, one collector (F@ndr0id) has shared photos of what appears to be a full-set on the KR forums – revealing both Scott Tolleson designs and the previously unshown Kronk design. With this newest ‘evidence’, we’ve come to the conclusion that S3 does indeed feature 15 designs rather than the 14 suggested on the official packaging. Android S3 looks great and should prove to be quite popular. Hit the jump for the spoiler images.
