Tomopop Review: Mimoco's My Little Pony Mimobots

Apr 14 // Rio McCarthy
Product Name: My Little Pony MimobotsProduct Maker: MimocoRetail Price: US$24.95 - $129.99Available At: Mimoco Let's take a look at the packaging for the Mimobots shall we? It's a pretty basic package with some My Little Pony flair. Each of the USB drives are in the clear plastic sections so that you can see them easily just by looking at a quick glance. They're packaged with their heads detached so that you can obviously tell they're flash drives, if you don't care to look down just a little bit where it says so. The back features the other MLP drives in the series, which as you can see we have all three of them right here. If you didn't catch it on the front, I also got the 8GB version of all of them. Interestingly enough when I bought mine they were US$19.99 each, but now they're showing that they're US$24.99 for the 8GB versions. You can get 8GB for US$24.99, 16GB for US$29.99, 32GB for US$39.99, 64GB for US$69.99, or 128GB for US$129.99. Here you get a look at how to pronounce "Mimobot" if you weren't sure before hand. You can also see that this happens to be the package for Rarity, as she was the limited edition pony. I got #93 out of 500. There is a cute use of the My Little Pony world on the insert that's inside the box, which I'm a fan of. I love it when companies go the full nine yards to make sure what they're selling fits in with the world of what series they're working with. As you can see the only real protective packaging they have is just this clear plastic to hold them in place. It seems to have done its job though, as there were no scratches or anything due to not being secure. Here we get our first look at them outside of the package. From left to right we have Rarity, Rainbow Dash and Twilight Sparkle. They look much better with their heads on, don't they? The bottom of the flash drives show which pony is which, and you can see all that copyright business as usual. You also can see where the lights are on their bums for when they're plugged into the computer. We'll take a look at Rarity first, who is my absolute favorite. Seeing her cute little marshmallow-looking face is what won me over with these Mimobots to begin with, so I obviously am happy with her. However, sadly, there are a bit of printing issues with some of the paint lines. There's some of the lighter purple outside of the lines, and the darker purple is a little rough in some areas. Her cutie mark does look great though, so that's definitely a plus! Next up is Twilight Sparkle, who I was actually the most tentative of. I originally really disliked her face and the weird upward look of her eyes, but it's actually grown on me a bit. She's still at the bottom of my list of the three, but I still like her. The part that actually surprised me a bit was the fact that she actually has her wings on the back after becoming an alicorn in the last episode of the 3rd season. Like Rarity, she only has one cutie mark instead of having one on both sides of her body. Rarity's made sense considering her tail and hair somewhat being in the way, but it doesn't as much for Twilight. However it does look good regardless. There maybe a little bit of weirdness with the printing of the wings being a little outside the lines, but it's far from noticeable on this one. Last, but definitely not least, is Rainbow Dash. You can see there's a bit of silliness with the printing on this one as well. Her right wing is missing the inner bit, and some of the hair is a bit uneven in certain places. She's still adorable though, so it's no big deal. Rainbow Dash is the only one of the group that actually has both of her cutie marks. It makes me even more curious about while Twilight doesn't have two, as Dashie's tail is almost in the way as well. I like the way this one looks, and it just feels a bit more complete with both. Here you can see all three of the Mimobots all plugged in and lighting up. It was a bit difficult to get pictures of them so you could still see them, as well as the light itself, but hopefully you get the idea. Now, let's get to the surprises they hold inside! When you first plug in your Mimobot it comes up with whichever one you place in your computer will show up on your autoplay menu. You can see I obviously plugged in Rarity for this. The first thing I saw when I plugged it in were the avatars that they give you. They have both 60px by 60px avatars, as well as 80px by 80px avatars. There are several for all three of the ponies, as well as some with them as a group. Second up are the computer icons that you can use for different things on your desktop, or around your computer. Next we have desktop wallpapers which feature the Mimobots themselves. I like Rarity's, but I think the Friends Together! group wallpaper might be my favorite, as well as the last one with the somewhat "burst" looking background. Lastly for files, we have the phone wallpapers. If you've got a smart phone, feel free to add these little cuties to your home screen. Now when we load up the actual "program" on the drive, it first shows you the synopsis of the series. In the videos we have the opening theme, which is where you can see that this show isn't just for children or little girls. I mean, for goodness sake, we have The Big Lebowski ponies right here! They also share some of the books with us, especially noteworthy is the first issue of the IDW comic. There is also a section for the sketches of the first issue of the comic, as well as a preview of the My Little Pony: Under the Sparkling Sea book. Here you can see just how clear the images are in the first issue of the comic. I've collected and read all of them that have been released so far, and I absolutely love them. It's always fun to try and collect the covers, and you never know what jokes they might throw into the books as well. Here's the preview of the Under the Sparkling Sea book. It's.. interesting to say the least. All of the ponies gain fins so they can swim underwater, so that's a thing. One of my favorite things is the included music that you can listen to on here. There are four songs included, and one of  my favorites, "Giggle at the Ghosties", or "Laughter Song" as it's written here, was one of the four which made my day. Now if only I could have gotten "Art of the Dress" as well. What's the final verdict? I say go for it! If you're a fan of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, or any of these specific ponies, I can definitely say it's worth your while, especially if you need a USB drive. The extras are great, the designs are fun, and they're definitely practical! Be sure to hit up Mimoco if you want one of these little cuties for yourself.
