CyanogenMod chooses a new mascot

CyanogenMod chooses a new mascot
Okay, maybe it isn't quite right to say that Team Douche has chosen a new mascot to represent CyanogenMod, it's more that the Team has chosen a mascot for the first time, because until now it had been using the regular Android mascot in the various logos for each CM build. The Team chose from a number of user submissions and have come to a consensus on the winner. 

The name for the new mascot is still in beta testing according to the Team, but as of now the name is rAndy. We're kind of hoping that name doesn't stick, but the logo itself is pretty nice. It is distinctive and easily adaptable. Definitely a solid icon for CyanogenMod moving forward. The design is by Caio Alves. 

There were quite a lot of submissions, and the decision didn't seem like an easy one. One of the finalists, "Cervantes" by Moin Ahmad, might have gotten our vote over Caio's submission, but it would have been a close one. It's hard to say no to Cervantes' gear monocle. 

What do you guys think? Did Team Douche make the right choice? Were there any others from the submissions page that you prefer?

I LOVE the wrenches for hands. Says everything about adding the best custom rom to your phone. "I can do anything with these hands, and more importantly, the phone in these hands."

I like Julien Weiler and James Forsythe, 50 and 60, respectively. The logo they chose looks wimpy, makes me want to jump to iOS.

Perhaps now that cyanogenmod now also are working on offical roms and software for Samsung they have decided to changed their logo. Im not quite sure what i think of the new one but certainly the older logo while iconic was looking a bit dated
