I am not attending Comic-Con International in San Diego. Just getting that out there, because people keep asking. I wish I was, but I have to pick-and-choose my adventures... after all, I'm an at-home Dad, and my little ones need me here. That said, I'm still covering some select happenings from SDCC, and my friends at Mimoco are continuing their reveal for their 2013 SDCC Exclusive MIMOBOTs. We already know that characters from SOUTH PARK, STAR WARS, WORKAHOLICS, and MY LITTLE PONY: FRIENDSHIP IS MAGIC are in the lineup. So who's up next? BRUCE LEE, and the Ice King from ADVENTURE TIME. Details below...
Bruce Lee is definitely no stranger to battle. During his years as a teenager in Hong Kong Bruce often got into street fights, so many in fact that the police warned his father that if he got into one more fight they’d have to send him to jail. This is what caused his parents to send him to America, so we should probably be thankful right? But the wounds seen on the battle tested Bruce Lee Variant MIMOBOT aren’t from your everyday tussle with the local street toughs, these are from the undoubtedly most important, influential and epic battle of his whole career. Only 400 battle-tested Bruce Lee Variant MIMOBOTs will be produced.
The princess-loving, trouble-causing baddie star of Cartoon Network’s popular Adventure Time television series, Ice King, whether you consider him a villain with a soft side or a misunderstood anti-hero, is a necessary presence in the Land of Ooo. Though he still would prefer an already existing princess for his bride, he has time and again shown us that he is more than willing to build his own. We invite you to build your own memories and have Ice King MIMOBOT keep them safe for you. He’ll do a good job, he promises, right after this sweet drum solo. Ice King is the sixth member of the Adventure Time’s cast of lovable characters to be transformed into a MIMOBOT flash drive, which includes Finn, Jake, Princess Bubblegum and last year’s SDCC exclusive Fiona, and the more recent BMO Rainbow MIMOBOT LTD.ED. release. Only 850 of Ice King MIMOBOT will be manufactured so hurry before they are forever lost to the frost.
You can grab these at the Mimoco Booth in the Toy Grower Section (#5338), July 17-21 at Comic-Con International.
