OiDroids pop-out and build robots
Before Box Buddies, there was OiDroids pop-out and build robots…
OiDroids were pop-out and build collectible robot characters, each printed on a postcard-sized card. They were developed to be simple to make, with a unique, patented design, and were created from a desire to offer more play value and fun than typical trading cards and stickers.
Here’s a little history, for anyone who remembers them or wants to find out more!
OiDroids Series 1 was launched in ‘Box of Awesome‘ back in 2013, with a Special First Edition foil pack, featuring 64 unique pop-out and build robot characters.
Added to the original OiDroids four card pack, there was a 12 pack and a Party Pack, featuring 10 OiDroids party sets.
Each character came on a die-cut postcard sized card and was formed from just one piece with no cutting or sticking needed.
The characters and packs were developed throughout the time OiDroids was on sale. This was the final version of the OiDroids Series 1 packs.
Later the OiDroids Nuts ‘n’ Bolts Crew Sets 1 and 2 were added to sit alongside the refreshed Original Series 1 pack.
An exclusive ‘OiDroids for Land Rover‘ set was designed, featuring characters based on Land Rover vehicles.

OiDroids are no longer available, but Bitsabots were designed to be closer to the original concept of a collectable robot card that can be built into a toy.
