Mimoco Debuts Classic TRANSFORMERS X MIMOBOT USB Flash Drive Series

When it comes to USB flash drives, I wouldn’t really consider them to be a stylish product. In fact, most of them all look exactly the same regardless of which brand you are buying. That’s why I’ve been so intrigued with Mimoco’s line of MIMOBOT designer USB flash drives.

MIMOBOTS are part art, part utility as each one resembles some kind of character from a given theme. If you’ve seen any of their previous series before, than you know how good they look and the attention to detail they put into each one. Currently, their most popular series to date have been the Star Wars series, followed by their new DC Comics series and Green Lantern series. They even have MIMOBOTS based on Sanrio characters such as Hello Kitty.

As part of their new line debuting at 2011 CEA Line Show, Mimoco will be introducing their new TRANSFORMERS line of MIMOBOT drives. What makes this particularly interesting is that they will be based on the original generation one characters of Optimus Prime and Megatron. That means that the original characters that you loved in the 80’s will be back as stylish USB flash drives. Each flash drive will come preloaded with tons of bonus media.

“We are stoked to welcome the iconic TRANSFORMERS characters OPTIMUS PRIME and MEGATRON to the MIMOBOT family,” said Evan Blaustein, CEO of Mimoco. “We hope fans worldwide enjoy the collaboration which also features our most extensive preloaded media suite assembled to date.”

I’m quite excited for the new TRANSFORMERS X MIMOBOT series as I had grown up with the original Generation One line of TRANSFORMERS as a child. They will always hold a special part in my heart which is why when these come out later this year, I’ll be snatching one of these up for sure.
