(San Diego, Calif. – July 17th, 2013) — Mimoco® (www.mimoco.com), the Boston-based consumer electronics design studio has returned to San Diego Comic-Con, where they are celebrating their eighth year by releasing a series of eight low-run limited edition SDCC ’13 exclusive MIMOBOT® USB flash drives, as well as adding four new MIMOBOT characters to their flash drive line-up.
Over the past few weeks, Mimoco has revealed six of their eight LTD. ED. SDCC ‘13 exclusive MIMOBOT flash drives that feature beloved characters from iconic movies and TV shows. Now that Mimoco has touched down in San Diego they’re unleashing six more MIMOBOT drives – their last two SDCC ‘13 MIMOBOT exclusives, and four unlimited edition drives. Each MIMOBOT is preloaded with exclusive Mimory® content including the MimoByte® sound software, MimoDesk® wallpapers, icons, and avatars, and other bonus content like TV episodes and digital comic books. Mimoco’s latest MIMOBOT flash drives include:
Star Trek Into Darkness Klingon Captain MIMOBOT, edition of 1000, in collaboration with CBS Consumer Products. Klingon Captain is Mimoco’s first plunge into the universe launched by the major motion picture Star Trek and Star Trek Into Darkness. As one of the few alien races to show up in every series, it was only a matter of time before the Klingons had a MIMOBOT of their very own. Klingon Captain MIMOBOT comes with a helmet which, when removed, reveals a menacing grimace underneath. Only 1000 Klingon Captain MIMOBOTs are being manufactured, so get your hands on them before Kirk does!
Adventure Time Marceline MIMOBOT, in collaboration with Cartoon Network. Marceline may be the Vampire Queen but there’s no need to fear her. Just don’t do anything stupid like eat her French fries, steal her shirt, or wear something red, and you’ll be fine. Now that she’s joined the MIMOBOT ranks alongside her friends Finn, Jake, Princess Bubblegum, Fiona, BMO Rainbow, and the LTD. ED. Ice King you can have the whole Adventure Time crew ready to protect your memories!
Mimoco’s own Core Series Galaxor2 MIMOBOT, edition of 400. You can’t know where you’re going unless you know where you’ve been. Galaxor2 is your link to the past and future of Mimoco’s Core Series as well as another connection between Earth and Galaxy 4210. Mimoco’s Core Series MIMOBOTS are crucial to the safety of your documents, music, photos, and data as well as the health of the inhabitants of Planet Blõôh! Only 400 Galaxor2 MIMOBOT clones are in existence.
“Eight years ago we ventured to change the face of electronics in the guise of designer toys.” says Mimoco CEO Evan Blaustein. “Now that we’re working with so many great licensing partners, it’s clear that our vision has come into focus. At Comic-Con 2013, we’re proud of our greatest MIMOBOT roster yet. Each year at SDCC represents another birthday milestone for Mimoco, and this year more than ever we’re excited for what the future holds. Here’s to another eight years!”
See all twelve of Mimoco’s new Mimobots for the first time at their booth in the Toy Grower section (#5338) or in the Star Wars Pavilion (#2913M) at San Diego Comic-Con International.
