I’ve always enjoyed those little Mimobot Star Wars flash drives, though their bulbous heads always seemed a little weird to me – especially Yoda. They’re quirky, yes, but they never looked exactly like the original Star Wars characters they’re attempting to represent. These new flash drives from Italy’s Tribe look much more like their big screen doppelgängers.
Sure, their heads are disproportionately large for their tiny bodies, but you can recognize R2-D2, Yoda, C-3PO, Chewbacca, the Stormtrooper, Boba Fett, Darth Vader, and Darth Maul without a problem.
They only have 8GB of storage capacity each, but that’s okay – they’re really more for collecting than for storing digital copies of your entire movie collection – though you could probably store an HD copy of each flick on a representative flash drive. You know, Empire Strikes Back goes on Vader, Return of the Jedi gets saved on Fett, and The Phantom Menace gets
deleted stored inside of Darth Maul and so on.
You can order each of these officially-licensed Star Wars USB flash drives over at Tribe for €19.90 (~$26 USD) each, and you should be able to get the complete collection of eight drives for €149.90 (~$194 USD) soon. I only wish they had Jabba and Slave Leia drives too.
