There are tons of icon collections on XDA, all of them containing enough fantastic icons that will easily make your head spin. That being said, there are always new things to discover. A new and noteworthy collection to discover today would be that of XDA member skribblize, showcasing a dandy bunch of LauncherPro icons.
