As you all are very aware, I have a thing for flash drives. I also have a thing for MIMOBOT, because they have some of the best ones I have ever seen. This year’s Comic-Con in San Diego is, of course, one of the best places for them to debut some very cool new ones, and they have not disappointed. This line is primarily limited editions, and it features several well-known characters from movies and TV shows. The first six drives were unveiled over the last few weeks, but they saved the last few for Comic-Con. Each one is, of course, pre-loaded with exclusive Mimory® content including the MimoByte® sound software, MimoDesk® wallpapers, icons, and avatars as you’ve come to expect. But these also contain TV episodes and/or digital comic books.

The three here are a Star Trek Into Darkness Klingon Captain (only 1,000 available), Adventure Time Marceline, and a limited edition (only 400 created) Core Series Galaxor2. They’ve also made unlimited editions of Cartman and Dead Kenny from South Park and Pinkie Pie from My Little Pony. Limited editions in this series are Mysterion from South Park (850), Blake from Workaholics (1,000), Chewbacca (1,000), Ice King from Adventure Time (850), and a variant on their Bruce Lee drive (400). You can also pick up a special edition My Little Pony Fan Favorite Pony (850).

Pricing, of course, depends on how much storage capacity you want. These are available from 8GB through 128GB, with prices ranging from $24.95 US to $129.95 US. The 32GB versions are USB 3.0, while the others are USB 2.0. These are all available for the first time at Comic-Con, but you’ll also be able to buy them from other sellers, at least until they run out.
