Mimoco, under license by CBS Consumer Products, has announced the second installment in the Star Trek x MIMOBOT Series. The Hikaru Sulu MIMOBOT has been released in a limited edition of 1,000 hand-numbered pieces. He joins Spock, Kirk, Picard and Data in MIMOBOT flash drive form.
Available in up to 128GB and USB 3.0 capabilities (ranging from $24.95 to $129.99), Sulu MIMOBOT also comes preloaded with bonus Mimory and the MimoDesk personalization suite of wallpapers, icons and avatars. It also comes equipped with MimoByte sound software powered with an offering of iconic Star Trek sounds and Sulu character dialogue that plays each time Sulu MIMOBOT is inserted or ejected from one’s computer.
Emily Bee is showing off a sneak peek at her first OBots design. These are the new 2-inch tall resin toy produced by Argonaut Resins and Carbon Fibre Media. Each one features a head that articulates. So we will just have to wait and see what Emily, and other artists, decide to do with this new format.

Last seen as a work-in-progress scratch-built 1:1 scaled Snowspeeder, the single-seated Star Wars spacecraft made it's way to 2nd floor of Balai Kartini in Jakarta - not by itself of course - to hold court in last weekend's Star Wars Day Jakarta!
Least you think the speeder landed on the convention floor via flying thru the sunroof of the building, I was told the folks had 5 hours to assemble the speeder on site, with the result what you see here in these pics. Made by the folks from Zero Toys in Bandung, this was one of the highlights of the show, IMHO.
Folks had the opportunity for photo-ops, and for a small fee, you could climb into the cockpit for snaps too! On hand were two female Rebel Pilots - one of whom was the adorable "Misel" seen in the video first posted (Swell to meet you, Michelle ~ *iBlush*)!
I curse my diminished physicality to be unable to climb in for a snap, but perhaps one day soon when I recover … meanwhile, I shall live my dreams vicariously thru the attendees!
