The MY LITTLE PONY: Friendship is Magic X MIMOBOT Flash Drive Collection Beth Snyder March 3, 2013 Press Release 1 Comment 3 Flares 3 Flares × It seems like every time I turn around Mimoco is announcing yet another series of flash drives, and I love them for it. This time around are My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic drives, and with their release I know exactly what to get my oldest niece for her birthday. If you missed out on the My Little Pony craze in the 1980s, you have another chance, because these adorable little wildly coloured beasts are back again. You get to choose between Rarity, Twilight Sparkle, and Rainbow Dash. Appropriately enough, Rarity is a limited edition drive, so if you want one, you should probably act sooner rather than later. Something relatively new is that these are available in USB 3.0 speeds, and all the way up to 128GB of capacity. Of course because they come from Mimoco, they include wallpapers, icons, sounds, and other goodies, but special to this line is an entire digital copy of the My Little Pony comic book. But wait, there's more! You also get to preview the new watercolor Pony adventure book My Little Pony: Under the Sparkling Sea by award-winning illustrator Mary Jane Begin. The more I look at them, the more they grow on me. I'm not so sure my niece is going to end up getting one, to be honest. I want them all for myself. I mean, look at their little faces! They're ridiculously adorable. Each one has unique decorative features familiar to you if you know the series. I know I mentioned they're available up to 128GB (which will cost you $129.99 US), but if that's too much they start at 8GB for a mere $19.99 US. If you'd like Rarity, she's only available from Mimoco, but you should be able to find the others at your favourite retailer soon if they aren't there already. Full Press Release » (Boston, MA—February 28, 2013) — Mimoco (www.mimoco.com), makers of the MIMOBOT® and MIMOMICRO® lines of designer USB flash drives and card readers lets fans in on their newest collaboration with Hasbro, spreading Mimoco’s reach all the way to Equestria with the release of the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic X MIMOBOT Series of flash drives, available in up to 128GB as well as USB3.0 speeds. The collection showcases Rarity, Twilight Sparkle, and Rainbow Dash, three of the darn-tootin-cutest ponies, in MIMOBOT stylistically illustrated flash drive form. Each MY LITTLE PONY MIMOBOT drive also comes preloaded with extra digital goodies called Mimory®. The bonus My Little Pony-themed content includes the MimoDesk® personalization suite of super cute wallpapers, icons, and avatars, exclusive MimoByte® sound software, as well as an entire digital issue of the My Little Pony comic-book, videos, and a preview of the gorgeous new watercolor Pony adventure book “My Little Pony: Under the Sparkling Sea” by award-winning illustrator Mary Jane Begin! Rarity MIMOBOT is the super glam unicorn of the crew, sporting diamond-esque cutie marks, fluttery eyelashes, and a refined vocabulary. Rarity includes an indicator light that will give off a bright glow to expose buried treasures, like your most recent report or assignment. A precious jewel for any MIMOBOT collector’s trophy case, Rarity is a special-edition product available exclusively at www.mimoco.com. Twilight Sparkle MIMOBOT is hungry for knowledge and data. From her ‘moondancer’ cutie-mark to her starry eyes, this little pony has seemingly no end to what universal truths she can store – besides her capacity – which, fortunately, can go up to a large 128GB. Rainbow Dash MIMOBOT is so fast she gives our super-speed USB 3.0 drives a run for their memory! Full of speed, spunk, and now your digital memories, Rainbow Dash’s MIMOBOT radiates her prism-spectrum mane, lightning-cloud cutie mark, and undeniable charisma. The “My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic animated series has captured Mimoco’s hearts,” says Mimoco spokesperson Jessica Smiley. “Working with Hasbro to make My Little Pony characters in MIMOBOT form was a no-brainer and we are so lucky to be a part of the magic.” This marks Mimoco’s third collaboration with Hasbro alongside the TRANSFORMERS and G.I. JOE brands. Mimoco is excited to intrigue everypony while adding to their line of drives featuring Hasbro franchises.
