Have you been following the Podbrix phenomenon? These little artistically modified Lego men are all the rage.
The $16.99 first edition was an ode to the dancing figures in the iPod commercials. There were 300 produced and they sold out in 10 hours.
The second edition is a carbon copy of Mr. Jobs holding an iPod and an Shuffle. The release coincided with Jobs’ birthday on Thursday. Again, there were 300 numbered units and it only took 36 minutes to sell out.
I put a ebay tracker on these little guys as soon as I heard about the first sellout. There were three first edition Podbrix that showed up this morning. Each of the auctions has more than 5 days to go, but the top price is $157.25.
