Mimoco announces SDCC & Star Wars Celebration Exclusive

(Boston, MA – July 8, 2010) -- Mimoco, renowned for its collection of MIMOBOT® designer USB flash drives, hits the road this summer for stops along their annual tradeshow circuit including the Taipei Toy Festival (July 8-11), San Diego Comic Con (July 21-25), and Star Wars Celebration V in Orlando (August 12-15). In honor of the company’s 5th anniversary, Mimoco will present all new and exclusive MIMOBOT designs to attendees of the tradeshows.



Starting at Taipei Toy Festival this weekend in Taiwan, Mimoco drops their latest entry in the MIMOBOT Artist Series called Monster Molly MIMOBOT. The design is a three-way collaboration between Mimoco, Monster Taipei (organizers of the Taipei Toy Festival) and Kenny Wong, popular Hong Kong-based designer of Kennyswork and the pioneering designer toy collective, Brothersfree. Wong has collaborated with top international brands including Levi’s, Disney and Nokia. His Molly character has appeared in many iterations and now as Monster Molly MIMOBOT wearing a green monster suit to celebrate this year’s Toy Festival theme, “Monsters vs. Toys.” The show exclusive is available in a limited edition of 500 units.



At San Diego Comic Con and Star Wars Celebration V, Mimoco will make available their first MIMOBOT dedicated to the 30th anniversary of Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back, the Lobot MIMOBOT. The dual tradeshow exclusive, a limited edition run of 1,000 units, joins Mimoco’s ongoing Star Wars MIMOBOT Series. The mute Lobot was the chief administrative aide to Baron Administrator Lando Calrissian on Cloud City, over the planet Bespin. His brain was connected to the city's central computer, allowing him to communicate directly with the city's computer network. Now Star Wars fans can connect Lobot MIMOBOT’s brain to their computer via USB, available in 2GB to 16GB capacities at Mimoco’s two San Diego’s Comic Con booths #4938 and #2913M in the Star Wars Pavilion from July 21st through 25th, and at their Star Wars Celebration V booth #312 on August 12th - 15th in Orlando.
