If you’ve used any kind of smartphone, then you’ve probably seen this little guy before. Marc Young, aka GHLTurbo, has created Andy the Android/Bugdroid and needs your help to reach 10000 supporters on LEGO CUUSOO. Word has got out to the Android world and people are showing a lot of support. As of this writing, the project has already hit 3300 supporters within three days of being submitted on CUUSOO but it needs more supporters to be considered by LEGO for review. As an Android fan myself, I would definitely buy one if the project was produced. If you like what you see, head over to LEGO CUUSOO and help Marc get 10000 supporters for the Android mascot. Below is a brief description of Andy the Android by Google:
Being a fan of Lego and Google’s Android operating system, this creation was only natural for me. I did some searching and couldn’t find any really good Android Lego builds so I decided to build one myself.
This build currently uses 205 pieces of (mostly) Lime Green bricks. Using the approximate price per brick of $0.15 puts this kit around $30. There were many compromises in this build to get it to the model stage and I estimate that given the full catalogue of Lego parts in Lime Green, the part count of the final build could be reduced by 25%.
There are several points of articulation built into this model. The head can rotate 360 degrees as well as both arms. The antennae can also be positioned and have about 100 degrees of motion.
The one other thing that I would LOVE to see is that if this project reaches 10,000 supporters, is for Lego to use the proper Android green colour, listed as PMS 376C for print and #A4C639 for online hex colour.
