I don't know how many of you remember a USB drive that came out a while ago that was Evangelion's Rei Ayanami in her plug suit. She looked kind of like a weird fusion between the old Playmobil toys and a Lego person, as well as completely adorable.

Gigazine reports that a few more such drives are coming out, including one of Rei in her schoolgirl uniform (but still no Asuka?), Eva's Kaworu Nagisa, Macross Frontier's Ranka Lee and Sheryl Nome, Lucky Star's Konata, and Arsene Lupin III (Fujiko! FUUUJIIIIKOOOOO!).

Okay, as much as I'd love to see a Fujiko one, the Lupin one is pretty awesome. He comes with, among other things, a little gun you can stick in his hand. They also made one with a red jacket last year but it sold out.

Unfortunately Lupin is 2gb and everyone else is 4gb with minimal difference in price (¥3480, about $36.69 USD, versus ¥3980, about $41.96 USD), and as I've said before I love my functional merchandise best, so that matters to me. Besides which, I would probably lose Lupin's tiny little gun almost immediately. Sooo, I think I would probably wind up buying Konata or Sheryl.

Which one would you buy?

I'd kinda like Rei or Konata, but I don't think they fit in my budget. (If they had a Yuki Nagato, I'd be scrounging for extra cash though.)

Sadly, I'm not a particularly huge fan of any of those and already have a 16gb USB drive so~~. :3

@Kiriska: I don't think you are supposed to buy them for any practical purpose.

@Gundampilotspaz: This. I'd buy it and use it at conventions, but it wouldn't replace my normal pen drive.

Why is Lupin only 2 GB? That's probably the one I would want the most. Second being Sheryl.

those are cool but I can't get over my 16GB one. Maybe if they made USB anime character sleeves or replacement caps.

@MoonStorm: That's actually a really brilliant idea. A generic ~8-16gb flash drive and various skins and/or attachments to go on it, including licensed characters?

Why isn't someone doing that?

Hey, it's green jacket Lupin from the first TV series.  You don't see that as often as the red one.  It's kind of tempting.  Still, the price is a bit steep.  What do normal USB drives cost in Japan?

I want the Lupin one.  That's awesome.

Shoot. I was hoping to see something like a flash drive in the shape of a Compac Drive from Eureka Seven. I would definitely buy that. But these are pretty cool.

@Gundampilotspaz: Is true, but like I said, not a huge fan of the characters up there. There was a Code Geass USB a while back modeled after the Lancelot's key for about $40, also 2gb iirc -- would have been more keen on that one if it were the Guren's key instead. XD
