Mimoco Adds TIE Fighter Pilot to Star Wars™ MIMOBOT® Series 6 Line to Celebrate “May the 4th Be With You” Day
The limited-edition TIE Fighter Pilot joins fellow Star Wars MIMOBOT USB character flash drives in honor of the unofficial May 4th Star Wars holiday
(BOSTON – May 4, 2011) — Mimoco (www.mimoco.com), creator of the MIMOBOT® line of designer USB flash drives, introduces the limited edition TIE Fighter Pilot MIMOBOT as the newest addition to their Star Wars Series 6 line-up of character-based flash drives. Commemorating “May the 4th Be With You” Day, TIE Fighter Pilot joins existing Series 6 MIMOBOT characters Yoda, Hoth Luke, Wampa, and Snowtrooper.
Piloting fast and deadly, albeit short-ranged, Imperial starfighters, TIE Fighter Pilot MIMOBOT proudly serves the Galactic Empire with the same authentic characteristics of other fan-favorite, classic Star Wars MIMOBOT characters. Protecting your data from Rebel attacks, TIE Fighter Pilot MIMOBOT wears the sleek, black flight suit and helmet featured in the Star Wars movies. Remove the iconic helmet to reveal the USB port and TIE Fighter Pilot MIMOBOT’s determined face. Plug your TIE Fighter Pilot MIMOBOT into your computer to unlock exclusive pre-loaded Star Wars content including wallpapers, screensavers, icons, avatars, and sound-bytes.
“TIE Fighter Pilot was a near winner in our Star Wars MIMOBOT Audience Choice vote, losing by just a hair to Obi-Wan Kenobi. The race was so close, we thought it made sense to bring him to life in MIMOBOT form on a day dedicated to Star Wars fandom,” says Evan Blaustein, CEO and President of Mimoco. “We’re excited to continue offering a personalized storage solution that speaks to these lifelong fans and toy collectors worldwide.”
The Star Wars MIMOBOT collection continues to grow and currently includes six series, now offering a total of seventeen beloved Star Wars characters. Other popular MIMOBOT designer flash drive collections from Mimoco include figures from such well-known licenses as DC Comics, tokidoki, and Hello Kitty, as well as original artist series and Mimoco’s own Core Series characters.
MIMOBOT flash drives are offered in memory capacities ranging from 2GB to 16GB and come pre-loaded with mimory, exclusive MIMOBOT-themed content like wallpapers, screensavers, and videos specific to each character. For a limited time, the TIE Fighter Pilot MIMOBOT flash drives can be purchased online at www.mimoco.com and at fine retailers worldwide.
Boston-based design house Mimoco fuses the art of contemporary characters with the functionality of personal data storage devices and is well known in both the pop-culture driven Art Toy underground and the high-tech electronic world. The MIMOBOT USB flash drive line includes original characters and licenses from Star Wars™, Hello Kitty®, and DC Comics™, to pop-artists like Gary Baseman, David Horvath, and FriendsWithYou. MIMOBOT flash drives are available in up to 16GB capacities, are Mac and Windows compatible, and include preloaded bonus MimoDesk™ content.
