Mimoco, the makers of those funky USB drives, is at it again, this time showing off its San Diego Comic Con Exclusive Harley Quinn drive inspired by the Batman: Arkham City video game.
Harley Quinn encompasses the fan-favorite Batman character as re-imagined in Arkham City styling with red and black leather bustier, rainbow-highlighted pigtails, shock of blonde hair and the menacing white face of a sociopath worthy of The Joker’s love.
If you happen to be at the convention, stop buy Mimoco’s booth (#4938) and see if you can snag one of these. But you better get in line early, the company says only 800 will be made available at the show.

As the holiday season continues to approach with every increasing speed, finding just the right gift for your loved one is going to be a big deal. Shop smart, shop S-mart with this really nice Army of Darkness inspired T-Shirt that looks like something Bruce Campbell wore at the end of the move. The design is a print only, this shirt doesn’t really button down, and the blood most certainly isn’t real. For $30.00 it’s a tad on the expensive side, but money really shouldn’t be an issue if you truly love that special AoD fan in your life, right?
