Packaging

The BLOTz line is packaged blind box style, so you have no idea which of the 11 designs you've just purchased. All of the different designs are pictured on the sides of the box, along with their pull ratios. Inside, the MIMOBOT is held in a reflective bag (even more suspense) and includes a small booklet with details about the series.

Our Opinion

As you can see, the Hello Kitty BLOTz MIMOBOT that I pulled was the Penguin. It's a 1/9 ratio, which appears to be the standard ratio. Each MIMOBOT in this series features a 2GB capacity and is compatible with both PCs and Macs. There is some preloaded content, as mentioned above, specific to Hello Kitty.

I know it would probably increase the price of the blind boxes, but to make the BLOTz line even better...I would suggest throwing in a few higher GB MIMOBOTs as chase figures. Maybe one out of every 500 is a 4GB or something.

I'm not a huge Hello Kitty fan, but I can see why people would like these characters. They're all very cutesy looking. They feature Hello Kitty in what appears to be an animal suit. And they are all very colorful.

The printing on the MIMOBOT looks great. There are no paint marks or anything of the sort. The back does have some branding, with that HK (heart) Animals Mimobot smack dab in the middle of its back. I actually like the look of it.

While I usually deduct some points when blind box lines break that $10.00 price barrier, the BLOTz line is extremely functional. I have no problem paying $15.95 for a 2GB Flash Drive...even if I dont know which design I am getting. I'm hoping Mimoco continues this line with some of their other licenses.

You can pick one up at the following:

Mimoco: $15.95
