When/how did you hear about MIMOBOT? I first heard about MIMOBOT when my younger sister surprised me with a Gloomy Bear MIMOBOT! And after teaming up with Sanrio for some Hello Kitty MIMOBOTs — I’ve been hooked!
What is your favorite design and why? There are so many cute designs but my current fave is Hello Kitty ♥s Animals – Panda MIMOBOT because she was the one design I wanted in a blind box! I got her so I feel very special!
How are you a contributor to the mimocult? I think I am a contributor to the mimocult because I adore the MIMOBOTs I have: Gloomy Bear, a few Hello Kitty designs and tokidoki’s Sabochan! They are fun to collect and I keep one with me all the time! I also love to share my fave Hello Kitty designs on blog!
What is your passion/What do you do for fun? My passion is Hello Kitty — I am a Hello Kitty Junkie. For fun, I like to add cute Hello Kitty items to my collection and post blogs with lots of photos to share with the online community!
What do you store on your MIMOBOT? How does it help fulfill your passions if at all? My day job is a designer at tokidoki so any time something needs to be taken to the printer, I get to use my MIMOBOT! I store artwork and photos I might take for my blog onto my MIMOBOT for safe travels — which is fantastic because I get to carry the things I think about all the time with me… And it just so happens to be in some of the cutest usb drives ever!

When/how did you hear about MIMOBOT? I had worked for a fashion tradeshow in the past & part of my job was to read Women’s Wear Daily & other international publications. I’m not sure if I read an article about MIMOCO in WWD or in a Japanese magazine but once I did I was hooked & I had to check out your site. I believe I’ve been stalking your company since late 2005 / early 2006, give or take. In addition to that I’ve been meeting up with your company since the 1st NYCC started! I believe Scott has taken pix of my sister’s & my ‘bots since the beginning.
What is your favorite design and why? It’s definitely hard to pick a single favorite out of all the 23 (& counting! since I’ve ordered Data & Spock) mimobots I have! I’m constantly changing out which ones I carry with me depending on the situation. However that being said I’m very fond of the older mimobots that I have likeGalaxor, Galacula & NinjaDomo. Soon I’ll have to retire Galaxor since it was the very 1st mimobot I bought & its getting a bit too scratched up. It’s so old it’s actually a 1GB!
How are you a contributor to the mimocult? Everywhere & anywhere I go I have a mimobot or 2 with me & I’m always showing them to whomever I meet. I definitely know that between my sister & I we have infected at least 15 or more people to the MIMOCULT VIRUS! One of our friend’s 10 year old niece has caught the bug & is now up to 10 mimobots! Actually we like to call it the PEREZ VIRUS with a virulent MIMOCULT strain.
What is your passion/What do you do for fun? I’m artsy-craftsy-photo-takin’ kinda a gal. Besides taking pix of my mimobots I’m usually the one at family & friends parties preserving the good times with my camera. I’ve enjoyed the sci-fi & fantasy genre since I was a little girl & follow a number of independent artist like kozyndan, Tara McPherson, JR & Huck Gee. I’m into origami, paper craft in general, some jewelry making, drawing, crocheting & LEGO. I’m obsessed at the moment with making LEGO sculptures & crocheting scarves for my little cousins. I’m working on opening my Etsy shop soon.
What do you store on your MIMOBOT? How does it help fulfill your passions if at all? I use them to store any of my data that I want quick access to (i.e. movies, music, art portfolio, personal pix, school work, etc.) but I also carry them to share with family & friends or to take pix of. They’re my little soldiers of inspiration, my artistic army!
I hope I’ve answered your questionnaire fully & you now realize that I AM A #mimobotaddict! I love all the creative ideas that MIMOCO has come up with like the different contest i.e. #playAlphabot last year & #mimocult this year. Oh! & I’m absolutely thrilled that you’ve started a STAR TREK series! I’ve been wishing for that since the second you announced the STAR WARS series! My only other wish for the future now is that you bring back the colorful protohoodies. I love your company & will continue supporting it.

When/how did you hear about MIMOBOT? I’ve been a fan of the mimobot series when I first saw them at a local toy & games hobby shop back in the Philippines, I’ve been aware of these designer USBs from POP CULTURE MAGAZINES, WEBSITES, TOYS, TECH GADGET MAGAZINES.
What is your favorite design and why? I’ve my favorite so far is my R2-D2 which I got from the local Dick Smith here in Auckland. And just yesterday Bumblebee came in and ill put him up soon on the contest.
How are you a contributor to the mimocult? I’m such a fan of the pop culture of toys and collectibles, so i guess my continued support on these items is highly recommended. There’s not much of these locally. I do hope someday there would be easier to get and mostly the designs.

When/ how did you hear about MIMOBOTS?
I discovered mimobots abouts 3 months ago. I was on youtube looking at the amazing talent of Tara Strong, voice actress of Harley Quinn. I stumbled upon a video of her at a comic-con convention where she was promoting the Harley Quinn mimobot. And from there I visited mimoco.com
and fell in love with mimoco’s mimobots.
What is your favorite design and why? It really has to be between the Harley Quinn mimobot or batman the dark knight rises. They both unique and elegant designs. Harley is funny, psychotic, and passionate for joker and batman is strong, courages and just pure awesome!
How are you a contributor to the mimocult? I love to show people how awesome mimobots are by taking unique photos with instagram and spreading the love of mimobots. And with the mimocult contest we are spreading the love of mimobots.
What is your passion/ what do you do for fun? I love to draw and learn how to cook. I’m not the best at cooking but I still try hehe. I love hanging out with 3 of my bff’s. For the past four years had to be some of the best years. We could be hanging out at the mall or going to see a movie I’ve always had the best time with my friends.
What do you store on your mimobot? I store all kinds of art designs in my mimobot. I’m a big admire of artwork especially those that contain wolfs, batman, harley quinn, and HD nature backgrounds. I also store memorable family photos of the years I’ve been growing up 🙂 THANKS ALOT MIMOCO YOU GUYS ARE THE BEST!!!
When/how did you hear about MIMOBOT? My husband, actually. He was a big fan before we met and had (has) a great collection. He introduced me to them and, well…what’s not to love?
What is your favorite design and why? So far, I think I would have to say that Bruce Lee is my favorite. I think the combination of the tiny size of a flash drive with the bad-assery of Bruce lee is just comic genius.
How are you a contributor to the mimocult? I’m not 100% sure how to answer or what that entails, but going out on a limb, I would say I’m a contributor by using my Mimobots fairly frequently when interacting with clients or other artists…spreading the word!
What is your passion/What do you do for fun? Obviously my most favorite thing to do is spend time with my sweet little family (aaaawww, precious) Outside of that, I really enjoy supporting my husband in his band (Five Year Mission. Look it up, you won’t be sorry) and his acting in local independent films. When I’m not taking care of our son, I work as a freelance photographer.
What do you store on your MIMOBOT? How does it help fulfill your passions if at all? I mainly use the Mimobots for photo work. It’s a great way to quickly transfer images, whether for clients or personal projects. They have literally been lifesavers during large assignments…couldn’t have done it without them!
When/how did you hear about MIMOBOT? I heard about Mimobot when I was looking up adventure time merchandise (:
What is your favorite design and why? My favorite design is The Fionna USB because I love Adventure Time and Fionna is my favorite character
How are you a contributor to the mimocult? I’m a contributor because I love mimobots and I’m hoping to get a Finn one soon!
What is your passion/What do you do for fun? I like to draw but I love to sing!
What do you store on your MIMOBOT? How does it help fulfill your passions if at all? Mimobots can help me school work, drawings or even recordings of my voice. That’s how it helps me.
When/how did you hear about MIMOBOT? I first heard about MIMOBOT years ago. I think I saw it mentioned on Gizmodo.com or something. My first MIMOBOT was the original Darth Vader, which should give you an idea of how long I’ve been a fan.
What is your favorite design and why? There are so many great designs, and it’s hard to choose just one. I think my favorites change with my moods. One of my favorites that I own is Knowledgeus. He just looks cool. In a nerdy sort of way.
How are you a contributor to the mimocult? Is it bad that I’m not entirely sure what the mimocult is? I tried signing up for it, but I never got a confirmation email. I get regular emails from mimoco, so maybe I’m already in it. I don’t know. 🙂 What I do know is that I’m always telling people about how awesome MIMOBOTS are, I use the flash drives for practical as well as entertainment purposes, and I am definitely addicted to the little things.
What is your passion/What do you do for fun?
Outside of my wife and our new baby boy, I have two passions, really. I play in a Star Trek band called Five Year Mission, and I am an actor. The band formed three years (or so) ago, and we are writing one song for every episode of the original Star Trek series. We’ve released two albums and an EP, and we perform at conventions as well as festivals and any music venue that’ll have us. We’re pretty accessible and diverse (no filk here), so most people at least find us fun to watch. Our website is fiveyearmission.net
, and we’re on all of the requisite social media sites as well. Acting, I’ve been doing in my hometown for years, and I just love doing it when I can. You can even find me on IMDB, and I’ve racked up a few credits there.
What do you store on your MIMOBOT? How does it help fulfill your passions if at all? I use my MIMOBOTS for storing music or videos a lot. They provide a pretty convenient way to transport larger files from band member to band member. I also use my bots for every day storage ad transfer at work and at home.

I love to take pictures during my outdoor adventures and a cute little Mr. Phantom X will be able to store them all! Last summer I found a litter of baby skunks and followed them around and took videos of them. Coincidentally they are the same color as Mr. Phantom X! And of course Mr. Phantom X is going to need a warm coat for the cold Minnesota winters so I am going to buy him a hoodie!
