The line comes preloaded with exclusive Star Trek Mimory™ content including never-before-seen material from the Star Trek: The Next GenerationTM Blu-ray release, vintage toy commercials, and comics. The line also comes with the MimoDesk™ personalization suite, which includes Star Trek-themed wallpapers, icons and avatars. It also comes equipped with MimoByte™ sound software powered with an offering of iconic sounds and character dialogue that play each time a Star Trek MIMOBOT is inserted or ejected from one’s computer.

Star Trek is one of the greatest science-fiction sagas of all time, and we’re honored to add this revered property to our proud list of MIMOBOT characters.” says Scott Seraydarian, Director of Media at Mimoco. “We’re equally excited by the amazing array of bonus preloaded content that wholly enriches the product line and is sure to delight fans of all ages. Star Trek x MIMOBOT… Engage!”

Captain Kirk MIMOBOT® – In MIMO-form, Captain Kirk MIMOBOT maintains the swagger and smirk that helped make the character a legend as he led the original Starship Enterprise. Nothing can keep Captain Kirk from his mission to explore new life on strange worlds, and Captain Kirk MIMOBOT will take all your digital data right along with it!

Spock MIMOBOT® – The voice of logic. Cool, calculating, but intensely loyal despite himself, Spock proved the perfect foil to Captain Kirk. It was the back and forth between Captain Kirk and Spock as they debated morality and duty which made Star Trek: The Original Series such a compelling treatment of the human comedy. Spock MIMOBOT features the famous Vulcan hand salute. Let your data Live Long and Prosper with your Spock MIMOBOT!

Captain Picard MIMOBOT® – Leading the new crew of the Starship Enterprise on their mission of exploration and discovery in Star Trek:The Next Generation, Captain Picard had the strength and sensitivity to continue the story where Star Trek: The Original Series left off. Plug in your Captain Picard MIMOBOT and Engage!

Data MIMOBOT® – Perhaps the most perfect character to ever be adapted to MIMOBOT flash drive form, Data, the android crew member from Star Trek:The Next Generation, is uniquely suited to storing and transporting your… er, data!

The Star Trek X MIMOBOT® Series is now available online at www.mimoco.com and at select specialty outposts on planet Earth.

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.
