Dr. Knowledgeus and Isadore Glo beam down to Earth at SDCC in up to 16GB capacities
July 14, 2010

BOSTON, MA, July 14, 2010 — Mimoco, renowned maker of MIMOBOT® designer USB flash drives, continues its five-year anniversary collection with the introduction of original characters – Dr. Knowledgeus and San Diego Comic Con exclusive Isadore Glo – to its Core Series of memory storing MIMOBOT alien robots.

The MIMOBOT story began five years ago when data-starved aliens from galaxy 4210 flashported to Earth on a quest to save their ailing amnesiac minds from permanent memory erasure. Cruising in his zeppelin laboratory miles above his imperiled Planet Blõôh, the MIMOBOTs’ sickest genius scientist, Dr. Knowledgeus, formulated an experimental method of space transport and data transmission that could cure his ill comrades. Today, having perfected his flashportation technique, Dr. Knowledgeus and his revived pet Isadore trip through the cosmos on their own intergalactic journey to our home planet.

Both Knowledgeus and Isadore Glo make their official debut at San Diego Comic Con (July 21st – 25th), where Mimoco launched its MIMOBOT line of original character-based USB flash drives in 2005. Isadore Glo, a 500 unit SDCC exclusive, and Dr. Knowledgeus’s favorite bit-eating specimen, is a blue glow-in-the-dark color variant of the original Isadore Core Series ‘bot, now also available in green. Other old favorites kicked off Mimoco’s anniversary last month in new colorways including Swirl, Fairybit Fairybot, and RayD81. Dr. Knowledgeus completes the Core Series 2.5 lineup, and is available in 2GB to 16GB capacities at www.mimoco.com, as is the full range of MIMOBOT designer USB flash drives.

Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
