Boba Fett 'give-away' contest

It's April Fools' Day and I'm running a 'give-away' contest!

Star Wars Series 2

Fresh off the success of the wildly popular Star Wars mimobot® Series 1 Designer USB Flash Drive line, mimoco – the Boston-based designer toy studio/consumer electronics brand responsible for the world’s only character-based designer USB flash drives – has announced the highly anticipated second entry into their Star Wars collection. The Star Wars mimobot Series 2 introduces four new characters to the mimobot family: Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, Han Solo, and bounty hunter extraordinaire, Boba Fett.

The four new Star Wars mimobot designs take advantage of mimoco’s continuing revolution in cap styles. Han has his signature mop-top, Leia has her famous buns, and both Luke and Fett have helmets which can be removed to reveal their faces below. In addition, as with all mimobot releases, each character in Star Wars mimobot Series 2 will come preloaded with a desktop personalization suite with exclusive digital content, ranging from wallpapers and screensavers to icons and avatars, and the mimobot soundByte™ application that plays actual sounds from the Star Wars saga when the Star Wars mimobot is inserted or ejected from the PC.

Mimoco and myself are offering one lucky reader a chance to win Boba Fett in his fantastic mimobot incarnation! This is a very limited edition of only 5000 and the winner will receive 1269/5000. It's sure to become a highly sought-after collectors item! Not that you'd ever want to part with it!

"You are free to use any methods necessary, but I want them alive. No disintegrations."

To enter for a chance of winning this really cool prize, please leave a comment on this post. The competition closes April 30th 2008 and the winner will be randomly selected by me. My decision will be final! Good luck.

Special thanks to mimoco for supplying the competition prize. See their entire Star Wars series here.

  1. first!

    do I win for being first?

  2. Do I win for having the cutest ever little boy who would love such a wonder USB memory stick? It'd be his first!


    See, that's a winner.

  3. @dan - dude that is so unfair! using a child like that... to cheat me of my prize! what's next - a pitcure of him all dressed up saying "Get'im, dad! Fire!"

  4. Especially today it is a pleasure to see such an honest and giving attitude being spread all over the internet and all. U gave a lot to give back, especially if you like pieces of paper that smell like Senseo coffee.

    You will have to send the wonderful usb stick to the Netherlands though. Or I suppose Bobba could fly this way?

  5. A Fett shaped memory stick .. To truly guard those precious files .. Unless someone offers him the right price to divulge their contents ..Curse those mercenary bounty hunters ;)

  6. This is your winner! Over here, pick me! :)

  7. Fantastic! Some great comments already!

    Keep 'em coming! You've got to be in it to win it!

  8. Would it be too gratuitous to say "Boba has boobies!"?


  9. I don't see any Boba boobies.

  10. Looks like I'll need a box of Boba's to 'give-away' now!

    Keep those witty remarks coming! But, remember kids, this is a children's show and not Torchwood! :-)

  11. Wow, that flash drive is awesome.

    -no witticism here, that's for sure!

  12. What can I say, the Fett is fantastic in what ever form.
    Boba Fett + USB device = geek heaven

  13. That is the cutest thing ever.

  14. I once met the original Boba Fett (Jeremy Bulloch) at a Star Wars convention. Very nice a chap who signed my Star Wars video box set.
