Designer USB Flash Drives by Mimoco
"Help me, Obi-Wan, you're my only hope of transferring all of this data from the PC to my Mac." If Princess Leia had carried a Mimoco flash drive, she wouldn’t have had to store the Death Star plans in a bulky R2 droid, sending it to a strange planet for safekeeping with a dusty old recluse. She could have simply tucked a Mimobot behind one of her ludicrous hair buns, and the Empire would never have been the wiser.
Mimoco has many Star Wars entries in their line of flash drives, alongside Hello Kitty, Domo and other designs. The current series adds R2-D2, C-3PO, a retooled Stormtrooper, and Jawa models. Obi-Wan Kenobi won Mimoco’s “Audience Choice” poll and earned his way into the line-up, too. Pop off Obi-Wan's stylish brown hoodie, and plug the connector into any standard USB port. The Stormtrooper design reveals either Luke Skywalker or Han Solo when its helmet is removed. The two variations are blind packaged, but one is “a little short for a Stormtrooper.” Storage sizes range from 2GB to 16GB, and each Mimobot comes loaded with wallpapers, icons, animated screensavers, sound clips and other goodies.
