Hot on the heels of their Batman family USB flash drives, Mimoco digs deeper into the DC Universe and joins the Green Lantern Corps! These four new character offerings are available in 2GB, 4GB, 8GB, 16GB.

Mimoco, creator of the MIMOBOT® line of designer USB flash drives, and Warner Bros. Consumer Products on behalf of DC Entertainment, the world’s largest publisher of comic books, introduce the Green Lantern wave of MIMOBOT flash drive designs. The new collection consists of favorites from the Green Lantern Corps including Hal Jordan, Tomar-Re, Kilowog and Sinestro.

"We’re proud to partner with the world of DC Comics characters to apply our unique blend of artistry and workmanship to this special limited edition series of memory devices in anticipation of the upcoming ‘Green Lantern’ movie. We hope fans worldwide enjoy the collaboration as much as we’ve enjoyed producing it," says Evan Blaustein, CEO and President of Mimoco.

Green Lantern marks the second franchise in the DC Comics portfolio, along with Batman, to be reimagined in the MIMOBOT character-based flash drive form and function.

Each MIMOBOT designer USB flash drive comes in a range of 2GB to 16GB memory capacities and is preloaded with MimoDesk™ character-specific content including wallpapers, avatars, screensavers, and other digital extras.

Daniel Pickett
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.
