George Washington, America’s first president, is an icon for the birth and establishment of the United States, the “Father of His Country”. George Washington MIMOBOT features a Mona Lisa-esque smile hiding wooden teeth. He proudly wears his Colonial-era Tricorn hat on top of his stoic white wig while holding on to a cherry cluster. Rather than chopping down fruit trees on a whim, George Washington MIMOBOT stores and transports your documents, music, photos, and data. “First in war—first in peace—and first in the hearts of his countrymen, he was second to none…” and now he is the first president in MIMOBOT form. George Washington MIMOBOT is a hand-numbered limited edition of just 1,000 pieces.

Abraham Lincoln, immortalized as the “Great Emancipator,” was America’s 16th president, the first to be assassinated, and famous for freeing the slaves and unifying his country. His Gettysburg Address, beginning with the iconic words “Four score and seven years ago,” is considered one of the greatest speeches in American history. Abe’s MIMOBOT form leaves the top hat to the imagination and showcases his famous Lincoln chin curtain-styled beard. He sports a bow-tie to accompany his classic mid-19th century theater-going duds. Just like the real thing, Lincoln MIMOBOT allows documents, music, photos, and data to be shared, transported and collected no matter capacity or the color of the plug.
George Washington MIMOBOT and Abraham Lincoln MIMOBOT designer USB flash drives are now available at www.mimoco.com and in select stores worldwide. Happy President’s Day!

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.
