With Halo fever sweeping the globe culminating in today’s long-awaited launch of Halo 3, more and more companies continue to jump on the hype train and produce Halo-themed products. The latest to do so is toy studio/consumer electronics company Mimoco, which today announced plans to release a new series of mimobot designer USB flash drives themed after Halo and officially licensed by Microsoft and Bungie Studios. How cool is that!

Halo mimobot Series 1 is set to debut at the E for All Expo in Los Angeles on October 18th and will be available in three limited-edition colors: Master Chief Green, Red Spartan and Blue Spartan. And by limited-edition I do mean limited, as there will only be 5,00 Master Chief Green models and 3,000 each of the Red and Blue Spartan models to go around. The USB 2.0 drives will come in three capacities — 1GB ($49.95), 2GB ($69.95) and 4GB ($109.95) — and will be fully compatible with PC, Mac and Xbox 360. If that wasn’t enough to wet your Halo-craving appetite, each flash drive will also come pre-loaded with Halo-related goodies, including wallpapers, screensavers, excerpts from the Halo 3 strategy guide and upcoming Halo novel, an exclusive episode from the in-game talk show “This Spartan Life” and more.

Pre-orders are now being taken at Mimoco’s website. With so few units being released you better secure one for yourself before they are all snatched up. This is Halo we’re talking about here, so I’m sure they’ll be gone in no time. Now that Master Chief has finished the fight, you might as well put him to work protecting your computer files…
