Round out your thumb drive collection with Japanese Lightsaber USB thumbdrives available at ThinkGeek. I can’t believe we’re getting these (not to mention an R2-D2 USB Humidifier) and still no Han in Carbonite thumbdrive. Step it up, Japan.
(They also have a new t-shirt.)
Decapping the latest Star Wars Mimobots reveals the faces of Vader and Rex – two Vaders! The Revenge of the Sith version is standard, but every one in six will have the older Return of the Jedi face. And there’s a San Deigo Comic Con exclusive that will have Luke, ala his Dagobah vision.
You know things are tough when… A gift for the geek that has everything – a battle-scarred Hasbro Millennium Falcon – amazingly got no bids on eBay. Well, maybe not that amazingly, but $300 doesn’t seem that bad a price considering it’ll run you only about half that brand new. (via)
- TV: Jon Stewart is very excited about a Threepio bobblehead on Monday’s The Daily Show. I don’t have the heart to tell him that bobbleheads are kind of lame.
- Fanmade: Finally, a Han in Carbonite USB drive! Alas, it was already sold out last week.
- Lists: I think the green skin might have less to do with their popularity than the trend of not wearing very many clothes.
NotCot reveals the first of the new Mimobots… Palpatine! Creepy, huh?
I blogged about these Japanese USB drives back in 2005 – and so did Gizmodo.
Except this time we learn there actually is a Han in Carbonite model.
This time, the ears make sense. Okay, so maybe Wookiees don’t have adorable round little ears on the very top of their heads. Still, it’s the thought that counts.
Gizmodo reports that Mimoco is going to release a limited edition run of Darth Vader USB flash drives today. At $80 for 1GB and $170 for 4GB, they’re kinda pricey, though.
Next time they should offer a Han in Carbonite model. I’d pay $80 for the LOL factor alone.
ETA: TFN thoughfully cuts and pastes the press release.
ETA2: Order at Star Wars Shop.
