A company called Dyzplastic says it has worked with Google to produce these 3″ tall vinyl Android figurines. We’ve contacted Google to find out if these are indeed “official” (we have no reason to think they aren’t, but just to be sure) but regardless, they look cool.

Unfortunetly, however, they are currently all sold out, with Dyzplastic stating that they’ll have more this summer. When they are available, you can purchase them for a reasonable $7.25 a piece, or get a boxed set of 16 for $112 (although it doesn’t seem as if you’ll be guaranteed a full set of 12 if you do so).

The names of the various robots are pretty funny, with Standard Android, Hi-Voltage, Creature, CopperBot, Darknet, Octopoid, Albino, Reactor and Worker. Come on, you know you want Octopoid on your desk right now!
