One of the most sought-after iPod collectibles in the U.S. is iKub, an iPod stand released only in Japan, and designed to match the classic look of white full-sized iPods. Each iKub - named for Medicom’s Kubrick action figures - comes with a tray to hold your iPod, slotted to permit connection of a Dock Connector cable, and a large posable Lego-like character. He can either stand or sit, and his arms lift your Pod a bit above ground level. Three iLounge editors have these, but we’re not selling: look on eBay if your interest is piqued. Bear-shaped and colored iPod mini versions ([email protected]) were released later.


Editors' Note: iLounge only reviews products in "final" form, but many companies now change their offerings - sometimes several times - after our reviews have been published. This iLounge article provides more information on this practice, known as revving.
