Topic: Flash Drives

I know this is for the Darth Vader Flash drives, but I received a promo sheet with a Boba Fett flash drive for sale on the Japanese Star Wars Fan Club site last year.  However, when I went there, their site was pretty much shut down and they weren't selling anything anymore.  I've been keeping an eye out, to no avail, so I figured they never got made, since the Japanese Fan club was pretty much shut down.  Once I saw this, though, I'm guessing at least one of the "other" character flash drives will be Boba Fett, since Darth Vader was also on the original Japanese promo sheet, and looked just like the one for sale now on the American site.  So, cross your fingers and keep your eyes peeled.

Re: Flash Drives

Well, I was looking through my Star Wars Insider today, and it looks like they're finally coming out with a Boba Fett USB flash drive.  I haven't found a picture of it online, and even though it says they're on the Star Wars Shop website, I have yet to see it listed on there yet.  So, until then, this picture of the actual page will have to do.  Sorry it's kind of a bad pic.  My old scanner doesn't work with Windows XP (even with updated drivers), so I'm finally going to have to break down and get a new one this year.  Anyway, enjoy.  It looks like the 1GB version is going for $79.99 and the 2GB version is going for $119.99.

This still doesn't look like the Boba Fett flash drives I saw listed in that Japanese Star Wars Fan Club catalog a while back.  I'll have to get a scan of that picture, and see if anyone knows for sure if any of them were ever actually made before the Japanese Fan Club store went away.

Re: Flash Drives

Way too expensive for 1GB and 2GB keychain hard drives... hmm

Re: Flash Drives

No kidding.  Why not just spend the same price for something that holds 4 times as much.

Glad I'm not the only one to think they were rather pricey...

Rather Gene-esque http://cwalega.echoes.net/kiss-photo-gallery.htm .

Kind of a waste of money, I think.

Agreed. Like so much Boba Fett merchandise. Although Sadriel or Sharpy may disagree. tongue

Too bad you can't unmask Fett, right? Everything's unmaskable since AOTC. Everything wasn't, before.

Re: Flash Drives

Too right, Aaron.

Blasphemy!! 

There is no such thing as a waste of money when it comes to the Fett man.

HAHAHA

Also, $70 for a memory stick I'll never use as a memory stick, is a bit much.  That one will have to wait a while.  Can probably get it cheaper on eBay after a while.

Re: Flash Drives

I was just reading another article on these things.  It looks like they're come preloaded with exclusive Star Wars content.

They're also going to be available on the mimobot website: http://www.mimobot.com

They also have some neat Halo ones on there, too.  Enjoy.

Re: Flash Drives

That's a really nice touch that the USB cap acts as the helmet and they show his face.  Very nice surprise, indeed.

I finally found that promo sheet with the Japanese Fan Club USB Flash drive on it.  Too bad these were never produced, as far as I know.  I actually kind of like these a little better than the ones that are out now.

A lot, I guess. neutral smile

Re: Flash Drives

Read above.  They were never produced.  Just promoted on the Japanese Star Wars Fan Club before the site went down.

Oh, well that sucks...they were way cool. The "Power of the USB memory" line is great
