As a child of the 80′s you can guarantee I had a few G.I. Joes and plenty of Transformers. With these two series and Star Wars toys, who needs video games and cartoon channels?!? I remember waiting anxiously every Saturday morning to see how G.I. Joe was going to defeat Cobra or Optimus Prime was going to save the world. I try to explain to my boys that these toys and cartoons started long before their days and the age of computer graphics. While they are bored with my old man stories, I still remember those innocent days of action toys as a golden era. Hasboro has licensed Mimoco to make Mimobot flash drives featuring characters from these two shows. That in itself is pure awesomeness, but they have also included some media extras pre-loaded on each device for some old-school fun. These look fun!
Mimoco (www.mimoco.com), creator of the MIMOBOT® line of designer USB flash drives and MIMOMICRO® card readers, under license from Hasbro, Inc., is introducing new G.I. JOE and TRANSFORMERS character-based MIMOBOT flash drives at Comic-Con International. These releases are Mimoco’s second collection featuring Hasbro franchises in MIMOBOT® flash drive form and function. The collection includes retro designs of popular G.I. JOE characters in MIMOBOT’s stylized appearance including SNAKE EYES, COBRA COMMANDER, and STORM SHADOW. The TRANSFORMERS line features retro BUMBLEBEE and STARSCREAM character designs.
Each G.I. JOE X MIMOBOT and TRANSFORMERS x MIMOBOT designer USB flash drive comes in a range of up to 64GB of memory capacity and comes preloaded with exciting bonus media. G.I. JOE includes amazing old school content like digital issues of the 1980′s comic books, episodes of the original animated series, classic G.I. JOE PSA’s, alongside bonus Mimory™ & mimoDesk™ suites of G.I. JOE screensavers, avatars, and wallpapers. TRANSFORMERS x MIMOBOT Series 2 also features Mimory™ & mimoDesk™ content and both series include mimoByte™ sound software that plays whenever a G.I. JOE or TRANSFORMERS X MIMOBOT is plugged into your computer!
The new Hasbro X MIMOBOT collections are now available online at www.mimoco.com, in select retail shops worldwide, and for a first look at Mimoco’s booth (#4938) at San Diego Comic-Con.
