We featured the Star Wars Mimobots some months back, usually with a line about them only being available to US customers. Until now that is – with the sci-fi characters now being sold in the UK by Firebox.
So what is a Mimobot? Well, it’s art-meets-technology if you like, a designer toy for your desk, but one with USB connectivity and storage space – anything from 1GB to 4GB. And with these being Stars Wars-themed, you get a choice of Chewie, R2-D2, Darth Vader or a Stormtrooper, all with exclusive content, including wallpapers, desktop icons, original trailers and a soundbite application featuring audio from the Star Wars tales.
Yours for between £29.95 and £49.95.
