I know it’s the holiday season and that we should expect sales, but I’m exhibiting my crotchety old man ways and hating on the overuse of terms like Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and the like. A couple weeks ago, I was at my front door screaming at the neighborhood kids to get off my lawn when I heard about Brown Thursday and Mattycollector’s 8 Day Cyber Monday Week that started on Tuesday, and nearly had an aneurysm.

The best discounts are on the DC Collectibles stuff, as you might expect. I’m just trying to prep myself for the next couple of Black Fridays until Christmas (which thankfully falls on a Wednesday) is over. Bah humbug!
Right now, Woot has Mimobot Flash Drives from DC Comics on sale for 28 to 32% off list prices. They’ve got two versions of Batman, Robin, the Joker, Catwoman, Superman, and the Flash. They’ve also got other properties like Hello Kitty and South Park. On top of the flash drives, each Mimobot comes with special desktop backgrounds, avatars, and media files that are unique to each Mimobot.
I can’t see how anybody could resist a Flash flash drive. In fact, last time I checked, the 32GB version was sold out, but a 16GB Flash is still available. Sale ends tomorrow but I think these will move fast. No Flash pun intended.
Mimobot USB Flash Drives
You don’t have to be a fan of all of these characters to get some enjoyment out of your Mimobot USB devices. Just say “The Flash flash drive” enough times, and you’ll know what we’re talking about.
It’s almost like getting two for one with the Chewbacca MIMOBOT announced for San Diego Comic-Con. That’s because he’s toting around a busted up Chewbacca, just like he did in The Empire Strikes Back, arguably the best Star Wars movie ever.
I’m still trying to forgive Mimoco for their exclusive Jar Jar Binks MIMOBOT, but here they go again with more prequel love on Star Wars Day. At least this time it’s a cute astromech droid.
Mimoco and Lucasfilm Announce Limited Edition R2-A6 MIMOBOT® USB Flash Drive May the Fourth be with you this Star Wars™ Day!
Mimoco (www.mimoco.com), makers of the MIMOBOT® line of designer USB flash drives, in collaboration with Lucasfilm and in honor of the Star Wars fan favorite holiday May the Fourth Be With You, announce the R2-A6 MIMOBOT®. R2-A6, an astromech droid in the same family as R2-D2, is translated in the MIMOBOT’s stylistically illustrated flash drive form. Available in up to 128GB and USB 3.0 capabilities, the drive comes in a run of 1,000 limited edition hand-numbered units. The R2-A6 MIMOBOT drive also comes preloaded with bonus Mimory® and the MimoDesk® personalization suite of wallpapers, icons, and avatars.
R2-A6 is known as a good-luck charm to the Royal Naboo Security Forces and now, in MIMOBOT form and function, can be a positive omen for your data storage. The droid’s green and white color scheme is derivative in design and function of fellow mechanically-versed droid, R2-D2. Just as a proper astromech droid would be expected to perform, R2-A6 MIMOBOT allows documents, music, photos, and data to be shared, transported, and collected for its master. Just don’t expect it to repair a starfighter malfunction in our earthbound orbit!
“Luck is always a nice bonus when you are talking about technology,’” says Mimoco’s PR Gal Jessica Smiley. “It’s no coincidence that A6 is green, it has good memory juju written all over it.”
The R2-A6 MIMOBOT flash drive joins several other Star Wars MIMOBOT characters like fellow faithful droids R2-D2 and C-3PO. The limited edition R2 unit is now available at www.mimoco.com in a run of just 1,000 units.
The joke now is that some hardcore Star Wars collectors may find themselves in a quandary that would challenge even Yoda: pick up what is sure to be an extremely limited exclusive for their collections, or skip the most hated character in the Star Wars universe. To help you say no, if you get Jar Jar and install the accompanying software, you’ll get a dose of Jar Jar Binks sound bites every time you plug him into your computer. Yousa people gonna die.
