• Mimoco® Prepares For Eighth Anniversary with Pre-Sales of Their 2013 San Diego Comic-Con Exclusive Lineup; Reveals Star Wars MIMOBOT® USB Flash Drives Releasing at SDCC

      Mimoco® (www.mimoco.com), the Boston-based consumer electronics design studio is preparing for their annual pilgrimage to San Diego Comic-Con, where in 2005 they launched their company and MIMOBOT® brand of designer USB flash drives merging art toy aesthetics with the functionality of personal data storage devices. Over the past eight years Mimoco has pioneered the licensed flash drive category with their MIMOBOT platform blooming into a veritable powerhouse showcasing dozens of pop-culture franchises and hundreds of iconic characters in MIMOBOT form and function, all preloaded with exclusive Mimory® content. Over the next month, week by week, Mimoco will let fans in on their newest collaborations – eight limited edition MIMOBOT flash drives, one for each year of their existence, each a sparkling candle burning bright in Mimoco’s metaphoric birthday cake!



      Mimoco continues the celebration with their Star Wars x MIMOBOT line, their longest-running co-branded licensed collection with Lucasfilm that started in 2006. Now in Series 9, Mimoco re-releases Chewbacca MIMOBOT in a hand-numbered limited edition run of 1000 units, in up to 128GB capacities, as well as in USB3.0 speeds. As with all Star Wars x MIMOBOT drives, these will be preloaded with bonus digital Mimory® content including the MimoDesk® personalization suite of wallpapers, icons, and avatars, and the exclusive MimoByte® sound software. Chewbacca Variant MIMOBOT is a complete redesign of Mimoco’s Star Wars Series 1 Chewbacca MIMOBOT and this time around he’s brought a friend with him! The temporarily disassembled C-3PO is hanging out on the back of everybody’s favorite Wookiee spitting all sorts of complaints into his ear. This Star Wars Series 9 MIMOBOT joins dozens of Star Wars characters including the recently released Jar Jar Binks and R2-A6 limited editions announced earlier this year. But act fast because only 1000 Chewie Variants will be manufactured.



      Mimoco CEO, Evan Blaustein said: “The theme of our eighth anniversary is friendship and this is clear in the redesign of the Chewbacca MIMOBOT. Fans will remember that in The Empire Strikes Back, Chewie saves C-3PO and carries him until proper repairs can be made.”

      “Furthermore we look forward to growing the bond that Mimoco has made with Lucasfilm over the years and for years to come,” added Blaustein. “We’re proud to bring back Chewbacca after all these years first as a Star Wars collector’s item to help celebrate our eighth anniversary together with fans and friends.”

      A portion of the limited edition Chewbacca Variant MIMOBOT is now available at www.mimoco.com for pre-order before its official release at Mimoco’s booths in the Toy Grower section (#5338) and in the Star Wars Pavilion (#2913M) on July 17-21 at San Diego Comic-Con International.

      Indeed. My dad had dementia, but he also had lung cancer. About a couple months after he started treatment for the cancer, his mind kind of gave out.
