Mimoco is outing the 8th series of Star Wars-themed flash drives on the eve of San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC). This series comprises of five Mimobots, all featuring characters from Return of the Jedi. Luke Skywalker, making his third appearance as Mimobot, is the recurring character, only this time Luke is now the Jedi Knight with a serious look on his face. Leia is now a slave, wearing her now ironic metal bikini.

There’s also the intergalactic crime lord Jabba the Hutt. However, this slug-like alien in Mimobot form didn’t get special size treatment as the character in the movie is freakishly huge. Admiral Ackbar – the fleet commander of the Rebel Alliance – joins Mimobot as well, prominently featuring its signature squid-like face.

Lastly, as a SDCC 2012 exclusive collectible item, Mimoco produces 1000 pieces of Biker Scout Mimobots which is offered on a first-come first-served basis. All 5 flash drives – available from 8GB to 64GB – come with avatar icons, wallpapers for iPhone / iPad / PC and mimoByte software.
