mimobot® Maul 'give-away' contest

In celebration of the 10-year anniversary of Star Wars Episode 1 releasing to massive and adoring crowds, we're proud to present the dual-bladed Iridonian Sith Lord, Darth Maul! The protege of Darth Sidious preceding Darth Tyrannus and Darth Vader, Maul and his iconic soundtrack immediately became a favorite of fans throughout the Star Wars world - at least until Obi-Wan Kenobi cut him in half and dropped him down a pit.

Mimoco – the Boston-based designer toy studio/consumer electronics brand responsible for the world’s only character-based designer USB flash drives – and myself are offering one lucky reader a chance to win Darth Maul in his fantastic mimobot incarnation!

"Tatooine is sparsely populated. If the trace is correct, I will find them quickly, Master."

  1. I'd love to see an ROTS Obi-Wan or any Obi-Wan! Ben is my favorite Jedi by far. :D

  2. I would have to vote for either Boba Fett or IG-88 - I think IG-88 might be harder, but very much worth it.

    R2D2!!! Technology = R2!

  4. I would love to see R2D2 re-released. Maybe with a newer design.

  5. I also retweeted you on Twitter and am following you.

  7. R2D2 has to be released soon.
    and Chewbacca.
    and then surely the Falcon has to get a release

    I could've sworn I entered, but since it looks like I didn't ('cause I just retweeted), I'd say the shape of those heads would fit an Ugnaught or even General Thrawn (assuming that we're allowed to look in the books for inspiration).

  9. Fantastic suggestions from everyone! Keep them coming.

  10. I'd love an Amidala or a handmainden Padme.

  11. R2-D2 or Bib Fortuna!

  12. I'm in agreement with many here: R2-D2. Retweeted as Masterssson

  13. I would love to see R5-D4. :D

  14. Yoda! They must have Yoda! He's the coolest!

  15. Hi! Great contest! Just an info: is it open worldwide?
