6 Foot Android Costume Lost or Stolen [Tragic News]


Some sad, sad news has come out of Cincinnati. It appears that Cricket’s Mr. Android costume – one they often use to publicly promote and display their love and acceptance for Android-based products – has fallen off of the back of a pick-up truck. Cricket’s offering $1,000 for the recovery of the costume. Steep reward, no? That’s because the thing cost $4,500 to make. Yea, I didn’t believe it at first either.

If you’re in Cincinnati and have seen the whereabouts of Mr. Android, please do all of us a favor and turn it in. I long for another day of someone standing in the costume looking just as happy as an Android robot can look. Hell, I even took a picture with the thing, so you can understand why I’m hurt and distraught over this. Do the right thing. [via AC]

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.
