Now this is more like it. Mimobots weren't meant for the designer treatment. As anyone can plainly see, they've always been best suited for the likes of anime stars, game heroes, and, of course, Star Wars characters.

The newest of Mimoco's novelty USB flash drives is an expansion of the latter galactic category with its "Mimobot Series 2," which includes Boba Fett, Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, and Han Solo. OhGizmo says these memory keys will be produced in limited quantities with capacities from 1GB to 4GB, starting at $50 each. They certainly took their time to even things out.
